Nice friendly staff , good food , good location next to the river and car parking. The only small thing I would have liked was draught beer but they have a large selection of bottled beers .

Thanks for your review. it is a shame we don't have space for draught beer but we do try to make up for it with our selection of beers.
I'm really pleased you enjoyed Cargill's and hope you visit again.

“Just couldn't fault it”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

This is a really good restaurant. Absolutely top quality food but without being pretentious and stuffy. 5 of us in a group arriving at about 3 pm looking for lunch (all pretty much choosing different things from the extensive menu) might not be the easiest customers to cope with, but no problem.
Made to feel really welcome, and left hoping that anyone needing to eat in Blairgowrie would find this particular restaurant.

“MMMMMMMM MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM MMMMMMM”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Went to Cargills while on holiday, had a fabulous meal. I had a seafood starter and my partner had mussels, the fillet steak was to die for. The service was great too. I will be back before the weeks out. We only booked at last minute, but would probadly recommend that you do at busy times. I am very fussy about where I eat as I like to cook at home, and I rarely have a meal out that is better than mine. Couldn't fault anything. Would give it 6* if I could.

“Family friendly and plenty to choose from”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

We had lunch at Cargill's with our young children. The menu is varied which is great for fussy eaters like us. There were several choices for the children. The rice was a bit strange as was like Arborio risotto rice served up with other dishes. Other than that, the food was nice, it was a pleasant place to sit and the service was very good. We will definitely go again if in the area.

“Excellent gem in Blairgowrie”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

A impromptu lunch visit. Excellent value, with a varied selection, away from the same old menu that everyone offers as they think it's safe. Good fresh produce cooked to order, with their own unique twist, beautifully presented.The service could not have been bettered, very keen to please indeed.
I can thoroughly recommend Cargills.
