My boyfriend and I had visited the dining room a few times and were disappointed to hear it had closed down. When we heard it was re-opening under new management we wasted no time booking a table. The menu is varied and offers something different to other places in Kirkcaldy. Service is fast, friendly and efficient and the atmosphere is... More

I chose not to believe him so tried it for myself.... More

We booked the Dinning Room for Christmas day at 13.30, although we had not been since it had been taken over by new management we had heard lots of positive reviews and thought the cost was very reasonable for what was on offer. Everyone in our party enjoyed every course, as a vegetarian I thought there had been a lot... More

We visited with family from Portugal in December and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The layout is quirky creating little rooms and alcoves which is lovely. The staff were attentive and food tasty as well as reasonably priced. we hope to be back very soon.

Had a family-and-friends meal here last night for my husband's birthday - 9 adults and 2 children. The staff were extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble, decorating the table and allowing us to bring a birthday cake etc. The choices of food were excellent and everything we opted for was absolutely delicious. A few people have complained about... More

A very pleasant experience, the waitress was friendly and enthusiastic, the menu was varied and extensive. Service was quick but not rushed, wine selection was first class, and most importantly the food was excellent and exceptionally well presented. Would definitely recommend and will return frequently !!

I couldn't fault my experience in this restaurant! Since being under new management the staff service, presentation of food and general dining experience has improved tenfold. Each dish is served with pride and beautiful presentation, the taste is outstanding, service was prompt and the ambience was perfect. Will definitely be visiting in the future and recommend to anyone. Was a... More
