I reviewed this restaurant last year giving my first impressions as I had not tried it before. In that review I had been so impressed that I think I said that I would become a regular customer. This has certainly been the case as we now often have lunch in Café Tabou. Last night we had Dinner in the restaurant... More

Great food, great ambience and great service. Cannot go wrong with dining at Cafe Tabou! Three plentiful courses all enjoyable and savoured the whole experience. Perfect for special occasions or intimate dining experiences with loved ones.

My family and I always visit here when we are in the area. The staff are always accommodating and friendly. The food is something else, just perfect! The house wines are delicious. If you make it through to dessert, try them you certainly won't regret it. Always a great place to eat with family and friends.

Just back from a sensational meal at one of the best, if not the best place in Perth. Smoked haddock starter was Devine and the steak to follow as good as any, with garlic butter not for the squeamish. Crepes Suzette unrivalled and swimming in flaming Grand Marnier. This is a little bit of Paris in Scotland people. Staff just... More

A lovely little bistro style restaurant with very pleasant staff, wonderful food and a reasonably priced wine list. Have been a few times now as we visit Perth regularly and have always had a very enjoyable meal - we can highly recommend the risottos in particular. Pre-theatre menu is very good value. We're so impressed we signed up for their... More

A quiet wednesday evening in Perth but this was half full. A couple of years since I was here but the food & ambience are still great. The staff were attentive, knowledgeable and efficient. We both had grilled mussels served piping hot and flavoured en francais in snail style dishes. Lots of bread & butter provided to soak up the... More
