Nice Place

Visited for cocktails, didnt manage to get a seat outside as very busy on a sunny Saturday afternoon, great staff who made delicious mojitos, sat at the window and people watched, a very popular place, worth a visit

No room at the inn so we had to stay elsewhere on this visit but we went for drinks one evening and then for breakfast. Cocktails were well-made and reasonably priced. Breakfast was excellent quality, great portions and service was friendly and helpful. I think this remains one of my favourite 2 or 3 eateries in St Andrews. Cannot recommend... More

We went to the West Port because they have a nice outside eating area. It was my birthday and my daughter was treating me. We both had "Reuben's" or their idea of one. If they intend selling a specific sandwich they should ensure that it meets with the product description. These were fairly expensive sandwiches and unlike a Reuben were... More

We had dinner at the West Port on 5 occasions during out stay at St Andrews as the food was good and there was a range of options as well as the usual range of Scottish pub food which included large portions of haddock and chips, steak pie and nachos. We were pleased with all the meals we had. Between... More

Nipped in for a mojito and it was extremely good. Prompt service and great music. It was busy with large parties but staff were very competent.

We stopped for a steak. The meal itself was very tasty and the service very friendly and forthcoming. The only problem is that the whole place seems to lack any sort of distinct atmosphere worth remembering.

Myself and some colleagues had dinner at the West Port, lovely decor, busy, staff attentive and reasonably priced. We decided to have dessert, the St Andrews Mess sounded great on the menu, in reality meringue nest with large amounts of cream very few strawberries and a small amount of coulis. Disappointing.

We had a super lunch here. The soup and sandwich special was very tasty and good value. We sat at the garden in the back as it was a sunny day and was very peaceful. You order at the bar and the food is delivered to the table. My parents had the cullen skink and it was delicious!

Great little spot tucked away at the back of the main tourist area. Weather was fantastic and great to be able to sit outside for a change. Found a table no problem, great selection of drinks and prices reasonable. Restaurant itself is split into couple different areas and looked nice and clean.
