Whilst Orkney may not enjoy the tropical sunshine of Polynesia, the pristine waters surrounding our beautiful islands nurture truly splendid seafood. So The Missing Bell at Eastward House pays homage to the cuisine of those far away tropical places with its ever popular 'Pacific Islands' dining experience with local seafood Orkney lamb.
Here is a rather special version for guests that returned for the 4th time!
And it all began with gourmet canapés served in the lounge.

The Polynesian dining experience began wih The Missing Bell original recipe that creates'Tahiti Waters'
