Excellent breakfast at the Bridgeview. Strongly recommend the porridge - very creamy! - and the full Scottish breakfast was just right, obviously freshly cooked. Good coffee.

After a freezing cold walk along the Tay the warmth of the Bridgeview Station came as welcome relief. A friendly reception from the waiting staff set the tone for what was a lovely few hours. Comfortable and with great views across the Tay, there's nothing ostentatious here. Just pleasant surroundings and a relaxing atmosphere in which to enjoy a meal.

Before the starters we were treated to some home made olive bread - a very nice touch.

For starters we had the mushroom soup and the fishcake. Both were very tasty. Well presented and a treat for the tastebuds the starters were incredibly good.

For the main course we ordered the gnocchi with butternut squash and the beer battered fish and chips. Again both meals were of a very high standard. The fish was fresh and the chips were extra special - hand cut with the skins left on. My only small criticism was the way in which the fish and chips was served, in a basket with a very small pool of oil at the bottom where the batter hadn't quite been drained. Overall it was a very enjoyable main course meeting with both our approvals.

As for the sweet it was like being in pudding heaven! An absolute treat! We ordered the rhubarb and ginger puree with ice cream and another ice cream with a meringue/biscuit type bake (a vague description I know). But trust me it was seriously delicious!!!

The food is cooked from scratch so there is a tiny wait between courses but for dishes of such a high standard this is fine. The wait isn't long. The drinks were served promptly. The portion sizes were just right. We left feeling comfortably replete.

Having e-mailed the Bridgeview Station with regards to the way the fish and chips was served the response was positive. A previous diner had made a similar observation and as a result the fish from now on will be drained of as much oil as possible before being served up. And if one prefers to have the fish and chips served on a plate instead of in a basket just let the waiting staff know.

Would we recommend the Bridgeview Station - absolutely! Comfortable surroundings, friendly waiting staff, good value for money and above all, delicious meals made from fresh ingredients cooked from scratch.

A restaurant that does Dundee proud!

Helped by a beautiful sunny day we had an excellent lunch here. The menu was very good, the chips were amazing, someone else had the fish which looked fantastic. We all enjoyed our meals & the view of the Tay
