The restaurant has an intimate bar and three dining rooms with attractive earth-toned decor that are a warm prelude to delicious, beautifully prepared food.

The wine list predominantly features wines from France, small American producers as well as a travelogue of wines from around the world. Oran Mor Bistro is owned by Chef Edwin Claflin. The cooking style is one of inspired simplicity; each ingredient complements one another to create a unique, savory dish. The evolving and innovative menu is derived from the changing seasons and their bountiful offerings. Showcasing native seafood, fresh local produce and naturally raised meats from select farms.

A second floor restaurant in downtown Nantucket, offer a great menu with delicious food. Many small intimate rooms make up the restaurants layout. Offered are both meat a fish dishes well seasoned and perfectly prepared. Service was excellent, very attentive and polite. Two notes, steep stairs going up and when making a reservation ask not to sit in the bar area room, it is quite noisy.

Very classy place...informal attire...I had the duck which was outstanding! Others in the group had the chicken and the pork chop. Both were very very good. Appetizers included the peas and wildflowers...heirloom tomato...the the half beet salad. Service was also first class. Very busy so have reservations in season. A top place!

Went to this highly acclaimed restaurant for our first night on the island. Town was crazy as it was a Saturday night during peak season. Service was good. Food preparations were very different and interesting. The foie gras appetizer was small and expensive but very tasty. It included an apricot mini-croissant which was quite unusual.
I had the duck which was, again, a little small but very tasty. The halibut entree was eaten by several members of our family who said it was quite tasty.
Good food that is a little pricey but what isn't pricey on Nantucket in August???

Always love this place. We like to sit at the bar and graze. Jon at the front of the house is always welcoming and they have a great menu. Could have ordered almost everything. We had the pea salad, the special duck carbonara (delish) and the beef duo. The couple next to us had the caviar with thinly sliced scallops instead of blinis. That looked great and is on my list for next time. You can't go wrong here.
