“Wonderful service and a menu to please all”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

We ate there recently and were surprised to be offered a table for a normal supper, when all around Perth, venues were insisting on Christmas packages. Parking was available on a nearby street for £1 (after 1800). The menu was extensive and we had difficulty deciding what to choose as we fancied everything. The decor is warm, with terracotta shades and not too glitzy with festive decorations. We were warmly welcomed and coats taken to a side room, then seated aside from the dining room to peruse the menu as we enjoyed our aperitifs. The service was attentive throughout and the food came promptly, served on very warm dishes - always a must for us. All 3 course were delicious and we both ordered separate choices, so well done to chef for pleasing us both throughout. This is a good find and although a little more expensive than other local venues, it does offer fine dining, as opposed to being an evening cafe. Well done to the team.

“Fabulous lunch”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

We're lucky in Perth to have a number of very good restaurants, but this is the one I keep coming back to as the favourite of them all. The food is consistently good, and the staff are friendly and helpful. This time we enjoyed the lighter lunch menu - this was a great option which allowed us to try three courses without having to spend the rest of the day groaning. I'll certainly be back again before long, and would thoroughly recommend it.

“A great find.”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

A really top class venue which we wished we had gone to on our previous night out.
Service is really top notch and for a fairly large group was very impressive.
Interior is warm and welcoming and a lovely little bar seating area for an aperitif.
Our food really was top drawer and was obviously freshly cooked with fab feedback from everybody.
One note of caution is that the wine is fairly pricey.
Would thoroughly recommend.

“Foodie heaven”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We ate here on a recent Saturday night and certainly were not disappointed by the quality of the food. Very nice ambiance in the restaurant and waiting staff were very efficient and pleasant. We were late in arriving for our booking having been held up at a previous function but weren't too impressed by the greeting, being told 'you'll have to go right to your table as the chef's about to finish'. This was about 9.20 on a Saturday night and we couldn't help noticing that they took another two couples after us. Food was fab though. Menu was small but the choice was excellent. Satay style halibut was to die for. Hubby's assiette of rhubarb was a work of art. Would definitely go back next time we are in the Fair City.
