The food here is very good. The servers are personable, attentive, and well-trained. The inside is comfortable and well lit. There is an outside area that is a real jewel of a place. Comfortable and quiet place to sip some wine and watch the foot traffic on the nearby street.

Booked table for lunch and was disappointed that we were shown upstairs -downstairs had a much better atmosphere. Great value £7.95 for starter and main. Good menu choice. Complementary slice of bread with dip before starter. Chowder soup had great taste but there wasn't a lot of it and no further bread was offered and we didn't ask. There was... More

We have used The Dolls House, roughly every three weeks over the last 3-4 years. It therefore goes without saying that we must like the place. When we went last week, as soon as we looked at the menu, we could sense a difference. A couple of choices where from the old menu but the rest summoned the response from... More

Just returned from a trip to St Andrews where we enjoyed a lovely lunch in the Dolls House (our second visit), tasty, well cooked and incredible value you certainly would not get this quality for the same price in the city. I will definitely recommend to family and friends.

For years we have walked past this restaurant meaning to go in for a meal. Having never made a reservation we were never lucky enough to get a table. Our luck changed yesterday! We were given a table for two upstairs and had lunch. I found the waiting staff to be extremely courteous and attentive. We both had the same... More

Last week three close relations and myself met here for a celebration lunch and I was very impressed. I had heard it was good, it was better than good, it was very good. The Gumbo was excellent, also was the Pan Fried Chicken, portions were just right, food and plates heated and the staff extremely pleasant and helpful. The total... More

I have visited St Andrews three times and was delighted to finally experience The Doll's House for dinner last week. It is in a small tucked away street so it is a quiet and intimate location. The interior is fairly small, but you do not feel claustrophobic at all.... the ambiance is charming and wait staff attentive. The menu, though... More
