The food is excellent, served by lovely staff and in good sized portions. Potatoes and other vegetables come in separate dishes. It's not a bad idea to arrive a little early so you can have... More

Beautiful views over the River Tay. Friendly efficient service and good food. Reasonably priced. A gem of a find in the lovely town of Broughty Ferry.
