Description: Perth���s 63 Tay Street is regularly billed as one of Scotland���s top restaurants. Set in a typical imposing grey stone building, the small but perfectly formed dining room is pure elegance from soaring ceilings to polished wood floors. The menu is made up of British classics given a contemporary twist, so you���ll find your Aberdeen Angus served with an oxtail sauce and your Inverurie lamb rack, neck and shank may be served with traditional neeps, but you���ll also find chorizo mash on your plate. The use of fresh, local ingredients and fine produce sourced from further afield means that every dish promises to delight those tastebuds.

We ate dinner at 63 Tay Street on Saturday 23rd. This was our first visit and we went with high expectations, however our expectations were exceeded thanks to the beautiful food and great, friendly service. This was one of the very best restaurant meals I have had, and certainly the best since Raymond Blanc's Le Manoir, and I would highly... More

We were looking forward to our meal here, comprising the Saturday night tasting menu at £42 for 5 courses. It is a small simply decorated restaurant overlooking the Tay, and was quite busy but not full. We chose the gravadlax starter, which was tasty if quite a small portion. The cauliflower soup was tasty but served in a tiny cup.... More

We booked this restaurant to celebrate our son's engagement and we were not disappointed; this is the best restaurant in Perth without a doubt, second only, in our opinion to Andrew Fairlie's restaurant in Gleneagles. If you would like your taste buds to be titillated, this is the place to go, from the tasters to the main meal. Our future... More

I visited on Saturday (16th) and was blown away start to finish with the quality of this food. You can tell the chefs have a love for what they do because every dish was mind blowing with textures tastes and skill. We arrived and were made to feel welcome straight away there was a guitarist playing in the background (was... More

This is one excellent restaurant, expensive but worth every penny. The staff went about their job effectively and with a touch of friendliness. The food was just great. I had the pigeon starter then the ribeye steak, both were just perfect. The cheeseboard was good but could have had more biscuits, maybe just me! The red wine suggested was expensive... More

Terrific little place offering well-cooked high end food in an intimate but relaxed setting. Other than one (quickly rectified) misdemeanour when the g&t's were brought with slimline tonic, the service was excellent. The evening menu is a very reasonably priced £42 for 3 courses plus amuse bouche and a lovely tomato & strawberry gazpacho. 5 or 6 choices for the... More

I chose this restaurant to share my 40th birthday with my family. The restaurant were really helpful with any request I had leading up to the lunch and were very attentive during service too. The food was fantastic in such a beautiful setting. The restaurant went to great length to ensure my 40th was very memorable!

We have been to 63 many times over the years and have never yet been disappointed. Everything about it is spot on. The quality of the food is superb and the cooking is inspired. The service is efficient and discreet. The prices are very reasonable for what is probably the best cuisine in Perthshire. The ambience is restful and the... More

Went here on Saturday 26th July 2014, and can't understand some of the other reviews which may well be for the same night. The restaurant was full, the staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming and the food was excellent. We have been here a few times before over the years and never been anything other than happy with it.

Dinner here with friends on an unusually warm Perth evening was not a pleasant experience. From the lack of a warm welcome (unlike the temperature of the restaurant which was unbearably hot) to inexperienced service and issues with two out of the three courses. Sadly, the price is not matched by the quality of the experience. After waiting for someone... More
