This was one of our favourite St Andrews restaurants for many years, particularly in July, when we had family birthday celebrations. On our most recent visit, it was less than a quarter full and totally lacking in atmosphere. The menu is very stripped down, the early evening menu which changed weekly is no longer available, no complimentary tortillas and little... More

Went in for a meal on a recommendation from a friend but was a little sceptical, straight away staff were friendly and attentive and put my concerns to rest. Our server Clair, was fantastic and made sure the meal went smoothly (mercado menu, 2 courses for £10!! Amazing value!!) and made sure we never finished our drinks! Will definitely be... More

Been to the Grill House many times now and it never disappoints. The lunchtime set menu is good value and the food is always spot on. It's not fine dining but the service and atmosphere are superb. Well worth a visit

Visited the grill house whilst on holiday in st andrews. The menu was fantastic. The kids all managed to find something they wanted to try, and even our vegetarian daughter who usually struggles to find something had so many options she found it hard to choose. There was not a morsel of food left on any of the plates. The... More

Went early on a Friday evening around 5.15 as had children with us and ordered Nachos as a starter, nearly an hour later still no starter even tho restaurant was quiet, no one seemed... More

One Plus point - lovely helpful waitress Minus points - less food for (much) more money Chips used to be lovely - not now. Served with nothing - oh sorry that is factually incorrect - ROCKET leaves piled up everywhere. Apparently this is a 'salad' Wait time was 35 minutes from time of ordering and it was quiet. Toilets were... More

Stopped in for lunch on Saturday. The town was very busy but it was very quiet (apart from the guy playing the guitar, he was good but a random time for him to be playing. Perhaps evening would be more suitable.) We've never seen it busy to be honest. Service was quick and the waitress was polite enough but seemed... More

My wife and I stopped here for a very late supper. The food with a Mexican flair was very good and the wait staff was extremely friendly and prices reasonable.
