So pleased we visited here - generous portions of really delicious French food, friendly waiting staff and even a pianist in the corner. Lovely atmosphere, perfect for a special occasion or just a quick meal. Will be back!

We ate here last week and were blown away by how good the food was. We ordered off the pre-theatre menu which was great value for money....then went and blew it by ordering a bottle of prosecco!!

Yet again another brilliant meal at Cafe Tabou. We were there for a birthday meal, and the staff were attentive and the food was great. I recommend the French black pudding or the confit duck leg. However I'd happily eat most things on the menu.

I love to go here with family and friends for relaxed meals, coffee breaks and bigger gatherings. The food is fresh, lovely on the eye, full of taste and suits all diets too. Plaza seating can be a bonus on a sunny day next to St Johns Kirk. Locals can feel like they are on holiday!!

If you want to have a piece of tasty ribeye steak, look no further! No frill, no fancy trimming, just juicy steak.

For a really delightful meal in a great French atmosphere this is the place to come. Food is to a very high standard with a change of lunch menu every day and a great choice of food at night.
