This is a relatively new eatery. Those of you familiar with the old caravan at the side road, or the railway carriage, east of the the airport on Riverside Drive will find it easily. We booked online and though a couple of tables were vacant, we had a superb river and bridge view. Lunch for two, Haddock and a burger... More

There for family meal last week. I choose the handmade burger. I have to say I found it quite bland, just burger on a bun. If you wanted anything extra like cheese then that was an extra £1 per item. The burger was dry and fell apart like mince. Very disappointed as the breakfasts there are really tasty. Others had... More

Usually a great place to go for a party of varying likes and dislikes, something for everybody with nice touches of flair and quality ingredients. Two out of three of our meals today of this usual good standard, sadly the third fell way below expectations. Veggie platter arrived without baba ganoush, marinated beet root, or feta cheese - the Harissa... More

I haven't been here for some time . It is a lovely place over looking the River Tay . I felt the choices were limited I found it hard to find something to eat but that's just me . I found it lacked atmosphere and an echo through the building but it's clean and friendly enough

Had a very nice late lunch here. Free parking is available a treat in Dundee. Menu is simple but great for lunch. Mac and cheese was very tasty with addition of leeks and pancetta being very successful. Prices were reasonable and staff friendly. As the name suggests you also get a good view of the rail bridge. Handy place to... More

Those who remember this as a greasy spoon may be a little shocked when they see the prices these days, but everything is very good, and the view almost justifies the cost for a lovely breakfast.
