Opened in 2017 the Sun Dancer Restaurant is positioned overlooking the Moray Firth, in the former location of the fondly remembered Sandancer Arcade.
While lovely memories of coppers lost and ice creams eating endure, the dilapidated state of the original Sandancer arcade meant it was necessary for safety to demolish the old building, replacing it with our modern and vibrant Sun Dancer that compliments the surrounding area.
As a family we had been looking for a perfect location, that would delight everyone who visited. We really feel we have achieved this. Though a large undertaking, Marje (Mum), Mike (Dad) and myself were excited to take on the challenge of the Sun Dancer and are delighted with the outcome.
On behalf of us all, I welcome you to the Sun Dancer and hope you enjoy it as much as we will enjoy your company.
I hope to see you soon, Lee
In a Name?
It stems from an old fish wives tale that tells of a dolphin who would jump in the Moray Firth until sunset each evening… and the dolphin’s name? “The Sun Dancer Dolphin”. We believed it was only fitting to honour the dolphin and the moray firth that we look onto every evening to enjoy the sunset.
Set on the first floor of the building, the Sun Dancer specialises in seafood and steak with a menu which boasts a range of dishes all using locally sourced produce,
Couple that with the location which provides uninterrupted views over the Moray Firth, it is no surprise that the Sun Dancer is an award winning establishment,
With a modern interior, but with old fashioned hospitality values, you can relax at the Sun Dancer whilst knowing you will be served first class food by a top team.
The Street Food Garden
Launched in 2021, the Street Food Garden does exactly what is says on the tin – serves great quality street food themed meals.
Situated on the ground floor of the building, there is limited seating indoors and ample seating outdoors where guests can enjoy those Moray Firth views. Remember though – come dressed for all weathers – we are in the Highlands after all.
