Very French, lots of menus filled with a massive amount of choices with French dishes predominating. Things started off with a somewhat impatient waiter who seemed to struggle with our order (maybe too many menus to deal with?). Later in the meal he forgot one of our dishes. Of the seven dishes were ordered 2 were disappointing and one was... More

Excellent three course lunch that lasted all afternoon after we discovered how good the wine tasted! Great set menu with daily specials on the blackboard. Friendly service and great value. Thankfully we weren't in a hurry.

We ate at Cafe Tabou for lunch and were very disappointed. The starters of Chef Salad and Fish & Shellfish Soup were nice. The salad more than the soup. The soup was very filling and was accompanied by croutons, cheese and aioli. The aioli didn't necessarily have to be an accompaniment. For the mains we ordered the Beef Bourguignon and... More

This place one could almost believe you were in France . The Restaurant was full as expected, the service excellent and the food divine having an extremely wide choice of items from starters to the coffee suitable for all tastes. It was Christmas Eve and a better way to start the Festive season would be difficult to find.

Despite us not having booked, the staff squeezed us in on Hogmanay. So glad they did - we ate from the pre-theatre menu which had plenty of choice. My main of liver and puy lentils was just excellent. My husband's venison was equally good. Good selection of beer and a lovely Normandy cider. Great stuff - highly recommended.

We enjoyed coffee and tea. The staff was pleasant and attentive. We would have enjoyed a meal here if we were in Perth longer.
