Great Food

The North Port is a great place to eat. I've visited half a dozen times when on business trips to Perth & the food is always first class & great value for money. The staff are extremely friendly and really accommodating. Will definitely be back!

Followed the reviews and was very impressed with this restaurant in Perth. Food was full of strong flavours which I loved. I started with squid which was cooked well and complimented with spring onions. The main of cod was presented with cauliflower and an excellent dill and lemon flavour combination and a wonderful Arbroath smokie mousse. Dessert of malt loaf... More

Rib Eye steak very tasty and cooked exactly as ordered. Husband's Lemon Sole also perfectly cooked however served with too many haricot beans and not sure celery was... More

A very warm welcome was provided and we were shown to a table. Water was provided whilst we waited for our drinks. I had... More

We hadn't eaten here for a while as the last time was not a good experience! However having read recent reviews, it seems that times have changed for the better here so we decided to give it another go. We booked on a Sat and had the pre-theatre menu - 2 or 3 course plus appetiser and it was all... More

Yet another faultless meal, this time for my husband's 30th birthday. We were greeted with 2 glasses of bubbly on arrival, so thoughtful! The wild garlic amuse bouche was like springtime in a bowl, so fresh and vibrant. My starter of squid was cooked to perfection and my husband's haggis was light and delicately perfumed with herbs and spices. Spot... More
