“Another great night at a fab Restaurant”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Well here I am again.... writing a review on a Restaurant that to me is No1 in St Andrews, and why do I and my wife Jane think its No1 in our book.... because to us you can not beat it. Yes there will be other restaurants that you think are better, but there is none better in St Andrews than the Vine Leaf.... and no I have not been paid to say this, I give credit where credit is due.

This is our third visit to the Vine Leaf, and right from the start the owner (Ian) made us very welcome... It was our wedding anniversary and because of that he made sure that we enjoyed the night, mind you we would have enjoyed the night if it was not our anniversary.

The food was outstanding and the wine choice (thanks to Ian) was great, went well with the meal. It is a small family run restaurant situated on South Street, St Andrews. The menu is varied and very good, with an excellent choice of wines.

If you are looking for a good restaurant with fine Scottish food and a great atmosphere then you will not go wrong here. its just brill.

“Outsatnding!!!”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

One word ....outstanding!!! This little gem is tucked away up a close half way down South Street. We have been here twice and each time it has been an utter delight. The restaurant, although small has a fantastic atmosphere to it and the food is without doubt some of the best we have ever had in St Andrews ( and we go quiet a lot). The owner (can't remember his name) is very helpful and cannot do enough for you and his staff are the same. The menu is varied, with something to suit everyone. Smart Casual is the order of the day here. We are going back, of that there is no doubt!!!

“Really imaginative food.”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

From start to finish this restaurant ticks all the boxes. From the home made bread and dips to the great puddings you're spoilt for choice. Slow cooked lamb is a firm favourite. There is something for everyone here.

“Great food, great atmosphere and fab host, ian”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

2 visits in a month, wonderful varied menu and great wine too. We received a really warm welcome and despite the restaurant being extremely busy we were not rushed and enjoyed a very relaxing evening. The lamb was to die for! Hope to be back again soon.
