Been here a few times and they serve good food. I had the fish and chips this time but felt they were a bit soggy. Others in the group had fish dishes too and really enjoyed them. Good friendly service. Only downside is having to drive to get to the restaurant - not on local bus routes

This place warrants a 5-star review, based on the food alone. However, you can't ignore the fact that the place is NOISY. When we arrived there were 10 other people there (so not very busy) but the noise was deafening. When we left the place was almost full and the volume had risen accordingly. Which is a shame, because the... More

Great restaurant by the river tay. Hidden gem in Dundee, they do brilliant food, and have been here on working lunches with colleagues. Have to book in advance though as it's almost always busy!

Adjacent the railway bridge in Dundee this little gem is a total delight. Tastefully decorated with an outstanding view over looking the River Tay, the site provides excellent customer service and delicious drinks and snacks. Very relaxing and comfortable and well worth the stop.

I have eaten in the restaurant many times for lunch and dinner and have never had a bad experience. The food is always delicious and well presented, and the prices are very reasonable, try the fish and chips they are brilliant!

Went for breakfast twice, which sorta shows what we thought of it the first time. You might enjoy walking to it (bit over 1 mile from centre of Dundee or along the riverside path from Discovery) or it's only a couple of minutes drive west along the river towards the airport. Has it's own parking area, and it's right on... More

Had a lovely walk along the waterfront with our two dogs. Came across The Bridgeview and thought it would be a good place to have a snack. There were a row of empty tables outside so thought that would be a good place to sit as it was a nice day. On making our way in a member of staff... More

Visited for breakfast with my Husband,son and two grandchildren ( 8 + 12) the entire family were delighted with their meal. The eight year old also commented on their beautiful toilets. The family live in Kensington and Chelsea. London and are used to eating in expensive restaurants.
