The two of us went for breakfast, the setting is beautiful, just stunning next to the Tay bridge! The menu is very limited: rolls, porridge or a full breakfast. The waitresses lacked attention to detail, standing in the bar area gossiping whilst we were waiting to be served and forgetting things we had asked for, ie sauces/toast as soon as... More

I had an evening meal from the December 2014 menu with several friends. The food was excellent and cooked well but the portions were meagre - 1 very small brussels sprout cut in half, 2 incredibly small baby carrots, and 2 thin slivers of potato with the slice of turkey roll. There was also not very much turkey meat as... More

Bridgeview Station Restaurant must be unrivalled in Dundee and perhaps elsewhere for having a stunning location, situated as it is alongside the River Tay with views across the water to the rolling hills of Fife. The bridge in question is the Tay rail bridge which the historically minded among us will know is the second reincarnation of the bridge, the... More

Had morning coffee and scone with a friend and we managed to get a window seat with superb view over the river Tay. Busy place but service was quick and efficient, staff were pleasant and helpful and the prices were reasonable. This was my first visit but will definitely return.

The Bridgeview isa great place to eat in Dundee, especially for a summer or weekend lunch. When the weather permits there are tables outside just a few meters from the River Tay. OK, so this is Scotland, so you might want to sit inside, but you can still get a view of the River through the whole wall of windows.... More

I'd heard rave reviews about this restaurant, and perhaps it is good for lunch but dinner was absolutely awful. We chose the fish and chips, my mother asked if she could have potatoes instead of chips and was told "fish goes with chips not potatoes", when she persisted she was then told, they buy the chips in and so don't...

Quirky place with great views of the river especially in summer when you can sit outside. We usually pop in for coffee or lunch. Food always good and staff friendly. Worth a visit.
