Very friendly atmosphere & varied menu. The lasagne is very nice & recommended. We go at least once a month. The only downside is that they don't always have available what you want to eat, a couple of times they have ran out of what we'd wanted. Nice place to go for a coffe or bit of lunch!....

Being friends with the Franco's in South Africa for some 20 years, I was looking forward to visiting them in Carnoustie to see their new lease on life. And was I pleasantly surprised. A real family restaurant with Big Daddy Franco doing his supervisory work, Janet and Steven running the entire place with extreme efficiency and the balance of the... More

Homely, spotlessly clean, friendly caring staff, beautifully cooked fresh food! Great choice of breakfasts customised to your taste. This is an oasis of a restaurant in Carnoustie. We had Sunday brunch, great choice of food and top ups of hot drinks. Wish I had been able to find room for some of their delicious looking tray bakes and cakes! There... More

Absolutely lovely meal but one particular waitress was absolutely miserable. When we entered and sat down she asked, "are you waiting or what?" in a very aggressive and unenthusiastic manner.

Had coffee and amazing cheesecake there. Staff were friendly and nice. A wee bit expensive, but will be returning to try the meals.
