Again we enjoyed delicious local produce prepared with imagination and expertise . Jimmy manages to provide sauces with a real depth of flavour to accompany fife fish, lamb and beef etc. Amanda's puddings and petit fours also are light of touch but pack real flavours especially of seasonal fruits. Although the restaurant is small you are assured of your table... More

A little tricky to find but well worth it. A friendly greeting and enticing menu that were worthy of much more exotic locations. The starters, mains and puddings were beautifully composed, with fresh ingredients of high quality. The soup pre-starter and bread were an unexpected bonus. Good wine list too. A great night out for a birthday celebration.

You have to search carefully for this very special restaurant, but once you have found it up a 'wee close' off the main route through Cupar, you'll never forget it! A fresh menu is prepared each day based on the availability of local produce and the presentation of all meals is second to none. The patron/chef has to be praised... More

A great little restaurant that really does deserve all its plaudits. Fabulous local food prepared with real flair and passion, beautifully served by friendly staff in relaxed surroundings.Having eaten in more restaurants than we care to admit to on five different continents we would rank this among the best. Not the cheapest but worth every penny and we will have... More

Third visit to this restaurant and it was our choice for taking the family for our anniversary. Each had 3 courses and enjoyed it all. There aren't many choices for any of the courses but what we had was really nice, tasty, really hot with nice extra touches such as the amuse bouche. It's not cheap but we knew that,... More

Attracted by the amazing TripAdvisor reviews we went to Ostler's Close with the intention of enjoying a great meal, happy to spend a lot on dinner since this was a special occasion. (We eat out regularly and do not resent paying good money for good food.) First of all, the atmosphere. Reviewers say things like 'cosy' and 'intimate', but in... More

We are rather spoilt as we live within wlalking distance of he Michelin starred Peat I nn, which well lives up to its reputation. However, if we want an intiimate dinner of superb cooking and a very small and intimate atmosphere, and great welcome from Amanda, then this is an equally wonderful treat to which we go probably in rotation....

Absolute amazing find. Was up visiting friends who brought in Cupar last year. We were going somewhere else but it had closed down?! Managed to get in here and was blown away. Scallops followed by beef tremendous. So was pigeon and lamb my friend had. Not cheap but well worth it, ratcheted up by three bottles of Amarone... Who could... More
