This was my first visit to this restaurant and it was a pleasure. The food was lovely and there was a good choice. Staff were friendly. Possibly a wee bit noisy but it was busy, which is a good sign. We booked a table since it seems to be popular. There are parking spaces outside although not a lot but... More

I have only eaten breakfast on two occasions at this friendly restaurant and they were delicious. From what I have seen other food seems to be of similar quality. If you are looking for well prepared and presented food the evening menu should be worth trying.

Visited for my lunch and liked the look of the menu. Took a while to be served and to get drinks but once ordered the food arrived within a reasonable time. I had the fish and chips and it was delicious, it was presented beautifully and tasted great. Would definetly come back for another visit.

Never thought about popping in here but glad I did - only stopped for coffee and cakes but quite impressed by the setup - excellent strong robusta coffee and no hesitation with my usual machiatto double, water offered and decent selection of home made cakes. Service was very friendly, natural and welcoming - lots of tourists in residence when I... More

Selected this restaurant for a family get-together based on the Tripadvisor ratings and comments. We were all well pleased with our food and experience. The food was excellent and well presented, and the service was also good. As another reviewer commented, the lack of soft furnishing did result in a noisy environment; it isn't conducive for a quiet chat. The... More

Restaurant is nicely set up and in an excellent situation with views of the bridge and the river. With few soft furnishings I think it could be noisy when busy, quiet this evening. Service was pleasant and efficient. My starter of goats cheese souffle with curried cauliflower was very good. We both had haddock and chips which were OK but... More

This funky restaurant has a glorious view of the Tay Bridge. Classy decor, and pleasant music give a good atmosphere. We went for a light lunch and were very impressed with the menu. The cheese soufflé was tasty with a pretty peashoot salad. The burger was cooked to your taste and beautifully presented. The service needs sharpening but this is... More

We love everything about this restaurant, from the staff, to the food. Every time we go we are treated like honored guests and the staff speak to our daughter which is always a plus as many places ignore children. The menu has a few things they keep on all of the time and then they have dishes they change every... More
