We had a delightful meal and evening at this cozy alley-way restaurant located just off the Bonneygate in downtown Cupar. Amanda and Jimmy have run Ostler's for 30+ years and they retain obvious enthusiasm for both the food and experience of dining there. The restaurant is small seating maybe 20-25 diners when full. Eight were there when we visited. The... More

What a fantastic meal we enjoyed this week, especially as we were being treated to dinner by a close friend! It never ceases to amaze me that Jimmy and Amanda's high standards in every area of their restaurant have remained constant in the 30+ years since we first visited. Pretty amazing and quite exhausting for them, I'm sure. Thanks again... More

I booked this restaurant for a special occasion and what a very special occasion it turned out to be! The restaurant itself is cosy and intimate, and located down a little alley which just adds to the 'mystique'. It reminded me of France. Anyway we arrived quite early and had the place to ourselves, which was lovely. Amanda was a... More

It is a rare establishment that can offer you a fine dining experience but with a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. This is a small restaurant but, as the saying goes, good things come in small packages. This place goes out of its way to accomodate you - everything is cooked from scratch meaning that dishes can be adapted on the night... More

What a lovely wee restaurant! Very small and intimate with warm and friendly service!! It was a surprise that the food was of such a high standard! We booked on a whim without really knowing what the menu was like. On the pricey side but worth every penny! First time I have tried and enjoyed a scallop, absolutely delicious! I... More

Amanda and Graham run a tight ship - they have been in the business a long time - and it shows - in a very good way. Food is wonderful, with the most succulent sauces. Everything is freshly sourced and you can tell by the taste. Amanda is an excellent host. Little touches like the fresh garden flowers make the... More

This is a Gem ! The Graham family have been doing this for decades and it shows. They know their business so well, it's just an amazing place for dinner. Hidden along the lane it has a lovely atmosphere with warm calm decor and the owners run front of house and cook to a very high standard indeed. The menu... More

This is a small restaurant in one of Cupar's closes. Staff are friendly and I particularly liked that we could taste the house wines before we decided on one. The restaurant is run by a husband and wife team and seemed well frequented by locals, we were lucky to get a table as we booked on the Saturday morning. There... More

If you don't mind paying for quality locally produced food then this is a must. The bespoke menu is hand written on a daily basis and is created around the produce available on the day. Jimmy is a culinary genius who can rival any top restraunt in Glasgow. Mandy is a wonderful host and creats the most amazing puds. The... More

Joined by my son and his partner to celebrate my husbands retirement. A warm greeting from staff and we were quickly served drinks and given a menu. The table was ours for the evening so we didn't feel rushed. We all chose different things and each of us were delighted with the meal. The wine with the starter and the... More
