Possibly the best restaurant in Fife. A good choice of Fish dishes always available with an excellent selection of wines to compliment

Once again Jimmy and Amanda excelled. Warmest of welcomes, beautifully cooked and presented food. Could easily eat everything on the menu. Piping hot on arrival (very rare these days). Very very tasty and best in area without a doubt. Looking forward to our next visit. Thanks to all 😋😋

We last visited Ostlers Close some time ago and were pleased to discover that standards have remained very high. The reasons are not difficult to identify. The restaurant is reached by entering a small passageway off the main street in Cupar. the room is small and does not have many tables so given its success it is essential to book... More

I reviewed this restaurant last year and it's got even better. The Graham family have been running this place for some 35 years and it's just wonderful. The food on offer is the freshest from the local area and all the ingredients are just sublime. Small choice on menu but every single item is superb, just amazing. Great wine list... More

I had never been to Ostlers Close before and thought it was perhaps too posh for me. It couldn't have been further from the truth. We were made so welcome, Amanda explained the menu and was so attentive when looking after my Mother who is partially sighted. The food was amazing, beautifully cooked and presented. I had a fish soup,... More

This restaurant has been going for a long time but the owners seem to treat every meal as though it the first to be judged. They do excellent fine dining food in a friendly and pleasant restaurant. Amanda gives a friendly welcome to everyone and Jimmy is an amazing chef. The meals were finely judged and beautifully presented. It is... More

Went to this tiny restaurant with three kids. Already when I made the reservation the owner inquire whether she should prepare special pasta for the younger kiddos - I declined but thought to myself that this must be a really good restaurant - not one of these tourist rip offs with chicken nuggets or fish fingers. The restaurant is tiny... More

We went here for a special occasion and, to be honest, were quite disappointed. The restaurant was quiet the evening we were there and there was no background music to give the place any atmosphere. The food was ok but not outstanding. I'm struggling to remember what I had! We have been to other fine dining restaurants and are happy... More

We had a delicious meal with fresh ingredients and innovative recipes. It was especially important for me as I am Coeliac and the meal was served with the glutenous bits removed and replaced with better substitutes.. I am delighted to report that I have not suffered a single inkling of any cross contamination which I often do when dining out... More

Went to Ostlers Close for the graduation dinner of my daughter from St. Andrews and was not disappointed. The seafood was exceptionally fresh and served in a very innovative manner. Don't let the decor put you off, you will get fine dining in a very quaint setting. Wish I could go back.

The elegant modern dining room has a relaxed welcoming atmosphere. Short hand-written menus change frequently, as they are based on local seasonal ingredients. A concise interesting choice ensures that each dish is prepared individually for each customer, allowing for great attention to detail. The restaurant is an ideal place to book for a private party to celebrate a special occasion, birthday, anniversary or an intimate wedding. Set tasting menus are tailor-made to the diners choice. The restaurant can accommodate special dietary requirements easily, as everything is home-made - just let us know in advance when you book. For example, we bake our own gluten-free bread for coeliacs. If you require a vegetarian menu or have any other dietary requirements, please let us know when booking. The wine list offers an interesting reasonably priced selection, hand selected affordable quality wines to compliment the food.
