Just got back from christmas stroll. It was great but by far the worst dining experience was oran mor. I eat at fine dinning restaurants all over the world. It took 1 1/2 hours to get our very bad cold food. We complained and they did not care. We will never go Back. Bostonbp

Usually a price fixed menu tends to be like eating food at a wedding, but to our grand surprise we had the most unbelievable meal last night!! The place is under new ownership and surpasses the former owners already great food. What a grand night!!!!

This is an intimate setting for dinner with family, friends or couples. The bar is small and quaint, and the tables are close, but it is a great place for dinner. Their menu offers a wide array of dinner selections without going overboard.

Always a great restaurant! New owner/chef was smart and did not change the name or ambiance, but a new menu that is terrific. Try it!

Service and food were great. The atmosphere was extremely cozy and romantic. It's an old house so table are fairly close but doesn't feel tight. Was a bit pricey but typically for the area.

Obviously, Nantucket has many excellent restaurants. What sets Oran Mor apart is that it is a truly cohesive and different experience. From the design, to the service and food, we were transported in a unique place and had one of the best meals in a long time.

We were here for a previous anniversary and recently returned. It was a wonderful meal - the service was excellent, the food delicious, the dining room was lovely and it's a convenient walk near the center!
