Found this restaurant early evening when walking in the area. It soon started to fill up and I can see why it's so popular. It serves a menu of trusted classics. We both had the sea bass. It was lovely, excellently cooked and nicely presented....Vegetables also perfectly cooked. The service was friendly and efficient and the food good value.More

A large party of us went for afternoon tea which I would highly recommend. We were greeted with a glass of prosecco on arrival. The staff were very good the place was full and very busy for the event but the staff worked hard and...made sure everyone was ok and around with a top up of prosecco. The food came out a stand to share between two people there was plenty on it to share and it was all very fresh and tasty. Can also highly recommend the food here been for lunch a few times and never been disappointed.More

Amazing food, everything was delicious and beautifully presented. Best burgers we have ever had, spectacular chicken supreme with green peppercorn sauce and the best dauphinois potatoes! We will definitely be back. Thank you!!

Highly enjoyable family meal for 6 adults and 4 children. Food was excellent and lots to choose from. If I was being picky, there could be a bit more choice for vegetarians, especially on the starter menu however, every adult had a different main meal...and really enjoyed it. We will be back again soon 😁More

My wife and I decided to give this restaurant a try and both enjoyed our meals. She had haddock and I had sea bass. They were very tasty and the service was of a high standard. The place has a nice atmosphere and you feel...comfortable in there in the present environment. We would go back there.More

Impromptu visit whilst picking up our son from basketball camp. Lots to choose from the menu, lovely friendly staff and very Covid secure. Food was fresh, piping hot and plentiful. If we lived in Dundee I think it would be somewhere we would eat regularly.
