“Fantastic Value”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

We found this hotel at the far end of Carnoustie on the last day of our short break. If we had found it earlier we would have returned. Food was perfect and really reasonable. Fantastic - a must if you are in the area.

“Supposed to be good - and it was”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We stayed at the Aboukir Hotel in May on our way back from the Highlands to continental Europe and consequently had dinner at “The Gable”.

It is supposed to be one of the better restaurants of Carnoustie and it sure was busy that night. Still, there was nothing to complain.

Being vegetarians, we found enough options on the menu, the food was good and tasty and the service was attentive, despite the busy place. Good value for the money.

It was a bit noisy, but with a full house, including the pub area, that is not really a surprise.

We would eat there again without hesitation.

“Family meal”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Food was good, prices reasonable. The waitress was less than enthusiastic. We will return as it's the best local restaurant we have found. Childrens menu wasn't just your usual chicken dippers or pizza. It was proper food which makes a nice change.

“Last orders at 7.45pm!!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Four of us were staying in Carnoustie and booked to eat here at 7pm. The boys were late in from the golf so we phoned to ask if we could slip the booking to 7.15pm. We were told that wasn't possible as there was a party of 12 expected then. We then asked if we could book for 7.45pm instead and were told no because last orders were 7.45pm. We cancelled the booking and ate in our hotel instead.

Last orders at 7.45pm in a golf resort in May? These people don't deserve to do ANY business at all. Shoddy and lazy!
