Yet another of the better quality restaurants in Dundee has now closed. Local press says the venue will turn into a 'high quality' Indian restaurant. We shall see!

Came here for my boyfriends fathers birthday meal for the pre theatre menu. There were 6 of us so not a huge table. The girl taking our drinks order only took half then walked off without the rest of the tables. The waiting staff generally didn't seem to know what they were doing which ruined the experience. They were lacking... More

Came here for lunch to celebrate my daughter's graduation. It was a menu devised for the occasion. Possibly the nicest meal I have ever had. The service was excellent. Worried that we might be rushed but the meal was relaxed and felt like a real celebration. Good value for money for a special occasion.

We were a little apprehensive of having a graduation meal here after reading some less than flattering reviews. Should we cancel? Or should we chance it? In the end we went and I'm so glad we did. The food was A1, the presentation of the food was fabulous and the wines were well chosen. The service was very attentive without... More

Visited here twice for lunch once with a friend and once with my husband Mussels and fish meals all very good - not huge portions but a fine size for lunch. Puddings although small were very tasty. Pizza was good - my husband likes thin and crispy so this was really to his taste. Lamb kofta wrap was awful -... More

We visited the other day after receiving a voucher as a gift. Here is what we thought; Staff - Neither friendly or welcoming. We had originally booked online then called to change the date and time. The time was wrong but the place was empty so no problems. Not asked if we wanted puddings, not asked if we wanted more... More
