Love this place!

We love to eat here in the evening - summer and winter the view is breathtaking. The food's not half bad too. I know the chef changes from time to time but the quality has never dropped. There is always something unusual and tasty on the menu as well as simple dishes if people prefer. You can go... read more

Lovely setting, friendly staff but very disappointed with food portions. All main meals £9.95. I would advise that you visit other cafes in Dundee and compare what is on offer for the same price. I would not recommend this café.

Went there to have breakfast and watch the eclipse. Service was excellent, the restaurant was spotless but the breakfast was very greasy and the black pudding was tasteless. Will go back and see if the lunches are any better.

The food was really good and simple. I ordered the soup of the day (Home made tomato and basil) which is accompanied with a nice warm bit of bread. The mains dish that I recommend is the fish and chips, the chips were also homemade, hand cut and deep fried. The view is somewhat part of the experience. On a... More

Booked a table for Sunday lunch. The place was already buzzing at 12 a clock sharp with customers, we were glad to have booked a table because shortly after the place got filled up. I had the pigeon starter which was absolutely cooked perfectly and was resting on bed of pear barley risotto. My fiance had the soup of the... More

Went here to have breakfast while waiting for the solar eclipse, absolutely brilliant breakfast, cannot praise it enough. It was cooked brilliantly and was incredibly flavoursome. Can't wait to try their evening menu. Definitely recommend the breakfast menu though.

My wife and I stopped for lunch at this restaurant which has a wonderful view overlooking the River Tay and the Tay Rail Bridge. The food was excellent and the portions were very generous. The interior of the restaurant was very clean and modern. The waiting staff were very nice although a bit forgetful.

Our family have been visiting here regularly ever since it opened and it always impresses. I have tried several different dishes over the years and every one has been a treat. Great food, great location, great service.
