The Bridgeview is in a quiet but extremely handy location on Riverside Drive with unmatched views of the River Tay and the Tay Rail Bridge. There is plenty of parking and an old railway carriage alongside the main building is an eye-catching feature. The food is excellent with a varied menu at reasonable prices, and the service is good and... More

This is a review about the Auld Tram between Commercial St and the High Street. What an amazing place. I came upon completely by accident and just had to get a coffee. It is so different. The coffee was very good and the place was certainly very busy on my visit, so I am assuming it is a popular place.... More

As soon as we were seated we were asked if we wanted drinks, we did and the waitress was quick with our order. For the food I ordered the Fish Cake which was... 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
