This restaurant is tucked inside the wonderful Victoria Square (a boutique hotel) - where we have been staying. Both nights we had dinner here and I simply cannot fault the food, service, wine list, or atmosphere. The menu presents excellent options and I found it difficult to make a choice, and they have a very good wine list. We opted for mains and a dessert (could not fit in three courses). You start with canapés and pre dinner drinks in a lovely lounge and then move into the dining area. The beef I had last night was perfectly seasoned and cooked to absolute perfection - a medium rare (more on the wonderful rare side), with the most fabulous jus. Homemade breads and whipped, flavoured butters round out the mains. Dessert was equally impressive - a delightful panna cotta. Tonight I had a gorgeous guinea fowl, again with an amazing sauce - this time followed by fabulous local cheeses, fruit and pickled walnuts (a very robust sized serving!). This restaurant is in the hands of a very talented chef who obviously cares very deeply about his craft and who treats the produce with respect. Do yourself a favour and book a table.

We had a pleasant visit today. We received a friendly welcome and were treated very courteously. The food was very good, well presented and tasty. The focus is on fine dining rather than standard fare but the prices are reasonable. Lunch for three with a nice bottle of wine was just over £80.

Beautiful food and great service from friendly and helpful waiting staff. We visited on a Saturday afternoon at a fairly quiet time. The restaurant is a little away from the city centre so not well known which suits us.

What a delightful restaurant, with superb service and excellent food! Presentation was lovely, and flavours delicious. Drinks in the beautiful drawing-room before dinner was served. If we come back to Stirling I would certainly hope to stay as well as dine there.
