There is always a warm welcome from Amanda, co owner of this well established little restaurant. Meanwhile her husband, Jimmy, is busy creating culinary masterpieces in the kitchen. Book early because seating is limited. The menu is concise and changes frequently as they use locally available seasonable produce. Wild fowl and sea food features regularly in imaginative ways. Excellent wine... More

Very difficult to find and an extremely limited menu. That's all I can say that's in any way negative. The rest was simply fantastic. Great welcome by the owner and nothing was too much trouble. Altering the limited menu was no problem and so catered for our dietary requirements. Everything was served hot (except the complimentary sorbet which was wonderful).... More

A delightful individually prepared meal with all four of us being amazed by the quality. Each dish had been cooked to perfection and displayed in an interesting fashion. What a shame we were just passing through.

Small restaurant tucked away off the Main Street in Cupar. Visited again with friends and it was just as good as our previous visits. The restaurant is fairly small but has a nice cosy atmosphere, the wine list is extensive and the range of speciality beers is a nice touch. It's sounds silly but the menu choice was limited but...

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

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.
