Where to Dine on the Scituate WaterFront Restaurant Oro

Located in the heart of Scituate harbor, Restaurant Oro offers fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere, where the highest quality ingredients from local farmers and fresh seafood  are selected and showcased.  10574477_927256597291574_1721829872371227394_n

Jill and Robin King met only miles from where ORO is located. After college they headed west where they discovered their passion for food and entertaining. Jill began as a manager at Copper Mountain while Robin worked at the cozy Café Alpine in Breckenridge.

Their love of the East coast brought them home to work in Boston. Jill at the Boston landmark Top of the Hub, Robin to Hingham’s famed Tosca under chef Kevin Long and then to work under acclaimed Chef Jamie Mammano at Mistral.

A few years later their dreams took them west again, only this time to sunny Santa Barbara. The two teamed up for the first time to run Epiphany restaurant, owned by Kevin Costner. This is where they developed a true style for cooking with local fresh ingredients. This could have been home but their families were just too far away. Jill and Robin decided it was time to head HOME. Jill at the famed South End Bistro, Aquitaine. Robin opened Stella Restaurant working under star chef, Evan Deluty. Inspired to start their own dream, they moved to the south shore to open Restaurant ORO in Scituate, MA.

Here is the Swampie buzz of    Restaurant Oro    in Scituate

Mom and I went out to lunch yesterday at Oro in Scituate Harbor yesterday. What a delightful meal! I had their Pad Thai, the most interesting version I’ve ever had, with their own home made delicious spicey hot sauce, Mom had the Fish Tacos, and we both had the Lemon Squares for dessert. Delightful is too light of a word. One of the chefs is a friend of mine, full disclosure. Go check them out!

Went to Oro in Scituate last night. Ate at the bar and start to finish it was an excellent meal.
Started with cocktails-both the spicy cucumber margarita and the botanical infused vesper were excellent.  Two of us shared the charcuterie tray. All the usual suspects but two things of note. One, they had thick cut bacon on the tray. Wow, perfect addition. Second the crostini were freshly toasted and warm. Very simple but so many places don’t do it and they should.
For our mains I had the lobster cake which was moist, tender and full of lobster. The other 2 each had the misto de mare which was like an unconstructed sushi dish. Delicious albiet small so not for hearty appetites.  We split a nice bottle of Rose with our meal and as it wasn’t busy we were able to linger bit and catch up. Highly recommend.

Love Oro. Consistently great and inventive food; friendly staff and great bartenders. One of the best and most consistent restaurants  on the South  Shore!

One of the best restaurants anywhere. The pork confit is out of the world as is everything else. The staff is fantastic. I recommend to anyone.  Great for an anniversary or romantic night out

My husband and I just tried Oro last night for the first time. The food was delicious, staff friendly, and the atmosphere was nice. The carbonara meal that I had was simply amazing! It was a pleasure to meet Chef Robin as well. I would highly recommend to anyone in the area.

Exceptional place! Chef Robin is a master with his recipes, cooking style, garnishes, and display. Everything is fresh, homemade and special. And as outstanding as the food is, the place is still approachable. The staff are friendly and the place is a perfect balance between relaxed, casual and fine dining. And it always has an outdoor fresh feel to it. Never stuffy. We love it.

Overall atmosphere is very cool…You can have a quiet, relaxing dinner there…Or if you are in the mood for more ‘interaction/buzz’, you can sit at their Bar and eat/drink, hang as long as you like!!:)”. It all just works together so nicely and I need to go more often tha I do;)”.

Here is the Swampie buzz of   Galley Restaurant   in Scituate

This is an open air cafe. We had a nice table by the street with a nice breeze. It is also a tapas place. All the “little plates” we’re very good. Just remember they are indeed little but very tasty. You order a bunch and they just come out randomly. We liked it but I’m not sure it is for everyone.

Lunch with my son’s girlfriend @ Galley Bar & Kitchen 95 Front St Scituate. 11665591_10207032218034812_2228027861772344427_nIt has an industrial mermaid vibe with outstanding service, craft cocktails, great beer list and delicious fresh food. We started with blood orange margaritas and shared ahi tuna poke, fish tacos and a duck confit flat bread. Yes, we rolled out in a food coma. Everything was super fresh and delicious. Check out their FB page and click view menu. After lunch, you can walk along Scituate Harbor and visit the little shops. A 5 star afternoon!

Sunday Brunch at the Galley in Scituate Harbor. My Egg Benedict, yes that is correct , single, galleyegg, it’s delicious and the best Moscow Mule I have had. Highly recommend this little place. It helps that I can walk to the Harbor and back home
