Description: This modern seafood restaurant is situated in one of the original sheds on the Dundee dock. So as not to disappoint, we do not have a sea view as modern buildings now occupy the water front location. The restaurant is owned and run by husband and wife team Steve and Alison Hyatt. On offer is an international style menu show-casing a blend of flavours and textures from around the world with the great produce of Scotland. We have a special offer menu available at lunch and pre-theatre £11.50 for 1 course, £15 for 2 and £18.50 for all 3 to compliment our a la carte menu which you can enjoy lunch or dinner. Children of 8 years and above are welcome.

Food is delicious. Last time we went I had the fish cake starter followed by the southern fried catfish. Deeelish. Lunch menu is under a tender for 2 courses - incredible value. Have been a few times and it's always excellent. Chef/owner is very friendly and makes you feel welcome. Oh, the prosecco-by-the-glass is yummy. Enjoy !

Exceptionally clean and modern decor. Great fresh seafood in a relaxing atmosphere. Top notch service as well. My wife and I ate here 4 times during our recent 2-week stay in Dundee. By far, the best restaurant in town.

The food was fantastic and a good selection of wine was offered to compliment the food, however the prices are in line with the quality making it quite expensive. The resturant has moved location since I last visited so I am not sure if it is the same now.

Staying in Dundee on business and what a find this seafood restaurant is! We went here 2 nights running we were so impressed. Not the cheapest, I suppose, but the early evening menu (till 7pm) in fabulous value for money. Don't be put off if you don't like the fish - my colleague had the steak and it looked amazing. We'll be back.
