This restaurant is located off a busy road overlooking the Firth of Tay. It is a replica station house and has an old railway carriage at the front. The interior is clean and modern. The staff were very welcoming and the service was friendly and efficient. The food was bistro in style and very tasty and reasonably priced. The only... More

4 of us called in for an evening bite. Service was friendly and efficient. 3 Fish supper; fish fine but chips not great. Fish cake starter very good, added portion of chips filling but not the best of chips. 3 pots of tea plus 1 Irn Bru Total came to almost £45.00. Will not be returning.

Many thanks for taking the time to review our establishment. I am really sorry your visit didn't live up to expectations; we pride ourselves on the quality of the food and service we provide and it always disappoints us when we fail to deliver. We sell over 8 Stone of fish a week and never have any complaints; in fact... More

My friends and I often have breakfast/lunch/afternoon coffee here. The food is lovely, and the menu changes monthly. They have a great 'soup witch' !! He creates some really different delicious soups. If you're not sure they will give you a little sampler to taste, which is very smart. Staff are generally very good and service usually excellent. Only issue... More

Stopped here for lunch & ordered fish & chips, which was freshly cooked, tasty & not a bone in sight! Unfortunately it was served in a metal basket - quirky but not so easy to eat from. The service was good, with pleasant, attentive young waitresses. The room is light & fresh, with a good aspect over the river &... More

Popped in here for a coffee a couple of times. The setting is lovely, with nice views over the water. Particularly good if you are able to get a window seat, or sit outside in the good weather. Service was fine, coffee and cakes were average, but the view makes up for that.

My 2nd visit to this lovely wee place. Excellent food all freshly cooked. Well worth the visit. The dining area is quite small as well so it's quite cosy and quick for getting the attention of staff.

Me and my wife went there on Monday 4th Aug for lunch, as my sister had been there before and she thoroughly enjoyed the meal. We went in and although there were a couple of tables wanting to settle the bill, we waited. But even when all the the people queuing had gone it still took them a couple of... More

Lunch here was a delight. The staff, mostly young girls, couldn't be more helpful and friendly. My friend and I both opted for the very reasonably priced 'soup and sandwich' lunch ( £6.95) A generous portion of the delicious soup of the day ( tomato and red onion) and a chunky soft bread sandwich with loads of pulled brisket beef...

The location and scenery were amazing and the breakfast itself was good. I was a little disappointed with the service though as we did wait quite a while for 2 breakfasts. We were given our toast with butter first but with no knives. Whilst waiting at least 15 minutes for the breakfasts to arrive, two other tables were served their... More

Great staff, great food. We stayed locally at The Premier Inn and were so glad we went here. We sat outside and ate with a beautiful view!
