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) 😉

An excellent lunch prepared from locally sourced produce with an emphasis on flavour, presentation and great value. All the staff were welcoming and attentive, there was a varied menu, and everything was freshly prepared and served while still piping hot. Highly recommended.

The View is just what it promises. A beautiful amazing view of The River Tay where you can have the dancing colourful lights of Dundee at night or a fantastic sunset if you are there in the summertime. The food is just perfect every time I have visited, and that is quite a few. Every American visitor I have is... More

Just been to a wine pairing meal at The View. Can't praise everyone enough for a great night. The food was fantastic, the service was first class and the wine was excellent. The wine rep was informative and friendly. We enjoyed the whole experience. Thanks everyone!

Went to this restaurant for dinner and 'The View' was fantastic. The view across the Tay was also fantastic. One of our party is gluten and lactose intolerant and there was absolutely no problem adapting anything on the menu to suit her. Not many places offer that kind of service. Our meal was lovely, will definitely go back.

Thank you to everyone in The View for making this special celebration so enjoyable.

We tried here lunch in early October. Lovey views from restaurant. We enjoyed the sharing platter and squid as a side dish. My daughter also enjoyed her meal from the kids menu.

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.
