Description: The food is Modern Scottish featuring fresh local produce from a seasonally changing menu. The cooking style is all about ingredients and the dishes are not over complicated letting the flavours speak for themselvesFront of house is friendly, relaxed and informal –the décor modern contemporary with impressive designs… Nothing has been overlooked which makes them stand out from the crowd and definitely worth a detour.There’s a reason The View is called The View - it has one of the most impressive views over the River Tay. On a summer’s day, it's clear, sparkling and beautiful. When the weather isn't quite so accommodating, it's dramatic, striking and ever changing.It’s the perfect venue for exclusive private functions such as Birthdays, Anniversaries or Weddings with stunning views across the Tay and catering for up to 70 people its ideally equipped for any special occasion.

4 of us came here for the first time a couple of weeks ago. We really liked it, and the quality of the food was top notch. However, seen as there were 4 us I would thought the chef would have made the portions a bit more suitable for our needs. For instance, when the beef came there was only 3 cuts, for 4 people to share. So I thought that was odd, but apart from that we all liked it and the setting is perfect. The service was great, especially the owner and the older gentleman who was our waiter. However, the young girl who took the order seemed to have a bit of a sense of humour bypass. Mind you, not all people 'get' my hilarious dad. We would definitely come back.

Oskar642.. Thanks for the great review.. Sorry about the issue with the beef.. Unfortunately some of the dishes require to be portioned prior to service hence the reason you got 3 pieces of beef on the dish. We do recommend if sharing that one dish will share between 2 people so as to give a reasonable amount to try .. Glad you enjoyed your experience with us and hope to see you again soon......along with your hilarious dad ... :) Steve

Great food, great service, great view! The portions are a bit larger than starters and are intended for sharing. Every dish we have ordered has been delicious. We have visited 4 times over the last couple of years and the menu has been slightly different each time. There is something (delicious) for everyone. As an appetiser, the sea salt and herb flat bread is delightful! We will be back!!

Schotlands cuisine served in "tapas-like" size. So if you are 4 people you can order 8 to 10 different meals which you can share with eachother. All of them freshly coocked, lots of scotish perfectly arranged. Apart from the delightness it is a great price value and on top you have the splendid view over the lake of Tay towards Dundee and the Scotisch hills. A place to go with freinds and your loved ones.

Small portions of delicious food served by smiling and helpful staff. I had not been for some time and but was delighted with everything and will certainly be back very soon. The restaurant was not busy on the day of my lunchtime visit, something that is unusual I am told by friends who are more regular diners than I have been. This detracted a little from the atmosphere a little but The View is to be recommended on the quality of its food and service.

A unique idea, choose several larger than starters smaller than main courses while having some wine and olives/flatbread, and add side dishes and enjoy. Puddings are wonderful too.
