Back in February I booked a table for 22 people for dinner to celebrate my parent's golden wedding anniversary in September. Nothing was too much trouble for the management and staff at Cargill's and they were extremely helpful when it came to chosing the menu, wines and making other arrangements for our party - special thanks to Gill for helping us implement our secret plans! My brother and I visited Blairgowrie in August to have a look at the restaurant and sample the food we were very confident that we had chosen the perfect venue (see my earlier review). However, the experience on the night far exceeded our already high expectations. All of our guests said the food was absolutely delicious - "best steak ever eaten" was the comment from one of our guests. The service was extremely good and the highly efficient staff did an amazing job coping with our party and their other customers in the restaurant. I really cannot praise Cargill's highly enough and I would wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant for every occasion!

Good food and good service at this restaurant. Very good value and pleasant staff. Hubbie had fresh local mussels which were very juicy, followed by the chicken dish which was good too. Desserts were delicious too. My rump steak with peppercorn sauce was excellent!

Cargills is an excellent restaurant - marvelous food, great service, good prices. We love going for dinner or for lunch. The soups are absolutely perfect and I have never had better sea bass. The chefs are creative but now showy or fussy. I highly recommend Cargills.
