I had breakfast here with my family and really enjoyed it. The food was lovely, well presented and there was a good portion. The staff were friendly and the table service was a treat. The atmosphere was pleasant, warm and homely. We were in Perth for two days and each morning we did the 10 minute walk to Willows for... More

Arrived for lunch and decided to sit outside. Almost immediately a waitress came and gave us cushions for the chairs. Our order was taken promptly and the food arrived shortly thereafter. Friendly prompt service and excellent value.

We are spoiled for choice in Perth when looking for somewhere to eat. Fortunately for us we chose willows where we both had the most delicious sea bass, perfectly cooked and presented. Yum!

After visiting willows on a few occasions of late either with work or with the family I must compliment the staff on the quality of produce and level of service.

Stopped off for lunch in Perth. We had two lattes, a baked potato and a Panini. The lattes were lukewarm, the small baked potato was only partly cooked and, again, lukewarm. The panini was okay but service was very slow. I wouldn't have minded the bill which, at £19, was on the expensive side for a snack lunch, but it... More

Was here a couple of month's ago and the place was quite busy, had to wait a few minutes to be seated which I don't min as no reservation made. When we got to the table the waitress took our order, forgot our drinks and came on second asking, no apology. I ordered a simple Chicken Caesar Salad which was... More
