Ladies who lunch

Lovely place to meet and catch up with old friends. Quiet at lunch time with great menu and great service. Be warned, the portion sizes are generous but that is always better than too little on the plate. Prices were also very reasonable and the service was first class. Shall return soon.

We arrived last Saturday for a lunch, we were welcome in the lovely restaurant of the Rep theatre by a very kind waitress who showed us our table. Great choice of wine and particularly of Prosecco, but the cherry on top was the food! Lovely to see and amazing to eat. Particularly liked the black pudding and applewood bonbons, the... More

For a restaurant in a theatre you imagine that a pre theatre supper is down to a fine art but it's pretty chaotic. At a glance they serve a full dinner menu instead of a short menu that they can prep plate up and move with speed. When it came the food was good but the staff were wandering about... More

Pre theatre menu very good and the presentation of the food was lovely. Service initially was good but slowed up a little so keep in mind for start of performance timing. It was busy but I did find it a little noisy more due to the design than the volume of customers. Good value for money.

There were 4 at our table on Friday night and we all enjoyed our meal. We each had a starter and main and were very pleased with both the presentation and the content on our plates. Our waiter was very attentive and even brought me a piece of tablet when the other 3 were having coffee and I was not,... More

Had this restaurant recommended by the hotel receptionist on a recent weekend in Dundee. Apart from the limited availability of the steaks, the dining experience was great. Was there with a group of friends and all had starters which were very tasty. I can recommend the smoked fish tartlet! Mains were equally well received with just the right portion size... More

Went for a pre theatre meal with a friend. Menu very limited, and rather disappointing. I didn't fancy anything I saw, and mentioned this to my friend. Our server offered to get something off the lunch menu for me, which I thought was a really lovely gesture. At this point I was impressed. Delight faded when the rush arrived. Obviously... More

We decided to have a date night at the Rep Theatre. To make it even better, we wanted to have a nice meal there beforehand. I made reservations but when we arrived and gave our names, they said they didn't have us. I showed them my reservation card and we were seated. Then we waited, and waited.... Finally we got...
