This is a small restaurant with a very unique menu. The first time I went I was a bit puzzled by the menu and wondered what the dishes would taste like. I was very pleasantly surprised. I have been back twice now and have had an excellent meal each time. My guests could not speak too highly of the quality... More

We have been here on a few occasions either b4 or after a visit to the Rep Theatre and never ever been other than delighted with the service and the food. It's unusual choices like pigeon, venison, etc and I was even asked how I liked my PORK cooked. All done to perfection very flavoursome and tasty. Attention to detail... More

I stayed in Dundee with a friend during the Ryder Cup, and I booked the restaurant before I left. It was a really pleasant surprise to find such a lovely little place to eat. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the food was superb. I can highly recommend The Playwright.

Having eaten here for both dinner, and an excellent value lunch, I can highly recommend. Not only is it convenient for the town centre, Rep and the university, but also the DCA. Beautifully cooked food on each occasion, charming and unobtrusive service a definite bonus.

We lunched here whilst visiting son at university. The restaurant was quiet for Saturday lunch but the staff were just great. Service was faultless. We enjoyed an excellent spelt with smoked haddock starter which was perfectly cooked. Our steak main was good and cooked rare exactly as requested. My son is Coeliac and this was no problem. The staff and... More

Excellent food. Kindness of the service. The place is small and elegant without been pretentious. The 3 course menu was a very good deal. They let us try three different kinds of house wines before to decide. This was very kind of the waiter. Cabernet from Australia was the best choice for me.
