The best value in Dumfries

This restaurant is the best value place to eat in Dumfries. Whenever I'm out shopping, I usually head for here as the food is consistently excellent, and for a 3 course lunch for under £5.00 you can't beat the value! Superb Christmas Lunches too!!

Food is superb and great value for money. Staff are very friendly. There is a cost friendly lunchtime menu and a more extensive night time one.

This establishment also catered for take away, and there was lots of take away activity going on, always a good sign. The waitress service was faultless. All... More

We had wandered round Dumfries for ages before deciding on the Pearl Palace - shock and horror at the state of the toilet area - the stairs leading down to it and the toilets themselves seemed to be full of damp and mould - horrible. The food was not too bad but the curry was over spicey and the chicken... More
