My Husband surprised me with a meal here and it was fantastic. The service is great & the atmosphere within the restaurant is so nice along with the views over the Tay. My Husband had the mild curry soup & pheasant and he said it was probably one of the best meals he's had. I had crab cakes with salmon... More

A nice choice of dishes, all beautifully presented and cooked in a lovely environment. The staff are friendly and attentive and nothing was too much trouble. There is plenty of parking and a wonderful view of the Tay Railway Bridge. I've been many times and never disappointed. Will certainly be back.

A restaurant we had heard and read about - Masterchef etc etc - so we went there for the final dinner of the Christmas holidays. Even though it was a dark late December evening, the view looking back across the River Tay onto Dundee from The View is pretty. I recall as a teenager cycling from Broughty Ferry, over the... More

ExpatinSG.. Thanks for the great review. I just wanted to point out to avoid any confusion that Jamie Scott ( Masterchef ) is not the chef here.

Picked this place for our Christmas lunch this year simply because we had not eaten there before. It was a delightful experience with good food, pleasant surroundings and friendly efficient service. Would not hesitate to recommend.

An ex colleague reunion took us to The View for lunch as it was a convenient venue for me in Angus and others from Fife. We had been before and enjoyed it so much we had returned. The view was magnificent from our requested window table and waitress duties prompt and friendly. The food on this occasion was enjoyable yet... More

We go to The View for our anniversary every year and they never fail to deliver delicious food. We had the smoked haddock fish cakes/ haggis fritters to start, Angus beefs strips/ roast turkey for main and sticky toffee pudding to finish. All of the dishes were scrumptious.

Can't wait to go again! The lemon curd ice-cream was out of this world, excellent service, good choice of wines, the food is well presented and extremely delicious. No wonder it's #1 for Dundee. (And it's right on our doorstep) 😉

The food is Modern Scottish featuring fresh local produce from a seasonally changing menu. The cooking style is all about ingredients and the dishes are not over complicated letting the flavours speak for themselvesFront of house is friendly, relaxed and informal –the décor modern contemporary with impressive designs… Nothing has been overlooked which makes them stand out from the crowd and definitely worth a detour.There’s a reason The View is called The View - it has one of the most impressive views over the River Tay. On a summer’s day, it's clear, sparkling and beautiful. When the weather isn't quite so accommodating, it's dramatic, striking and ever changing.It’s the perfect venue for exclusive private functions such as Birthdays, Anniversaries or Weddings with stunning views across the Tay and catering for up to 70 people its ideally equipped for any special occasion.
