Simply, one of the best lunches I have ever had. From, welcome,service, and hmm! the food.The sauce with my plaice, was to die for, with just the right amount of herb mash. Pipping hot, and beautifully presented. My husband had the rabbit saddle, with a dijon sauce, beautiful! we never have a sweet, but were tempted, with a caramel ice,... More

This place is amazing and not what you'd expect to find in a town like Perth! From the moment you walk through the door, you'll be transported to a little traditional French restaurant in the Loire Valley. Excellent food, excellent ambiance, excellent service....a little bit pricey (for Perth!) but worth every penny. I've eaten here a couple of times and... More

We celebrated our wedding anniversary recently and had a lovely meal at Café Tabou. The restaurant had a lively atmosphere and a real buzz. I loved the relaxed, very French feel that the restaurant has and the food was excellent. My wife had the figs with goats cheese and Parma ham which she thoroughly enjoyed and I had the chef's...

Mrs & I went for the pre theatre meal tonight here & we had a great choice & all stunningly prepared, cooked, presented & served by knowledgeable staff. Then a great piano player started playing (on a Thursday night) all the good ole hits. My first visit here but it will not be my last.

An impromptu lunch-time visit as part of our holiday, though we have visited several times before. The staff were as welcoming as always and the service was excellent despite the fact that the restaurant was busy. The food was delicious and there was plenty of choice to please all the family. Excellent value for money too.

We looked for a restaurant near St. John's Kirk where we could have a pre-concert dinner. Cafe Tabou fitted the bill perfectly, and was just yards from the Kirk. When we visited its website, we were intrigued to find that it was a French restaurant, in Scotland, owned and run by a Polish family. By the time we arrived at... More

Went for lunch on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Service was brilliant and the food was exceptional. A bit disappointed that we had to order the fish 24-48 hours in advance to get those dishes but given the quality I understand why! I will certainly be returning for an evening meal with friends in the not too distant future!
