Excellent fine dining

It's in a quiet dark corner at the back of the Dunkeld shopping centre (Fournos) and only a restaurant this good can make that location work. It was packed on a Wednesday night and the service was flawless from start to finish. The food was amazing. We had the quail and stuffed squid starters, both... read more

An unfriendly reception by the lady stationed at the door set low expectations for this up market restaurant. The Tuesday lunch crowd was small. I chose the sea bass from the menu but the waiter mentioned they also had sole. I enquired as to whether these were small or large and he said medium! The sole was very small but... More

We have never been disappointed with a single meal at DW during all the years we've been eating there, it is our fall-back restaurant for all our special events. Fantastic food, good service, nice winelist. We highly recommend this restaurant to all our friends.........and never to our enemies, lol.

Exceptionally good food - did not mind that there was only one vegetarian main, being the gnocchi - exquisite. Pumpkin cheese cake outstanding. Great complementary bread starter and coffee mini-sweets.

It was our third time here. We usually reserve it for special occasions. The hostess (Robin was her name I think) was lovely and warm. She checked on us many times during the night. We had the quail and stuffed squid for starters, the duck and pork belly for mains, and the pumpkin cheesecake and chocolate ganache for dessert. The... More

We saw it on Celebrity Master Chef South Africa and found it to be where we were going in a couple of weeks time and managed to get a booking in. The tasting menu with paired wines was excellent. Some of it, the best we have ever tasted. Also not expensive compared to anything like it (in Sweden). The atmosphere... More

Amazing food coupled with great service, is an extremely rare find. Service - our waitress was so attentive and friendly, not hesitating to assist us, no matter the request - yes she even took about 10 photos of my friends and I and explained the name of the restaurant to me, as I was quite curious about it :) Food...

I took my wife there for her birthday. Very good 5 course "tasting" menu and while expensive was worth it. We will go again and not necessarily to celebrate a birthday or anniversary.
