Arrived after lunch service had finished. We expected only tea and cake but the chef was kind enough to come out & offer Cullen Skink. It was SUPERB! The cakes were fantastic too. Great staff, friendly and flexible.

Friends, good food, great setting. The Dory offers a really great venue in a picturesque Fife village overlooking the harbour. Not just about fresh seafood so something for everyone. Well worth the trip.

The Dory Bistro & Gallery serves great, yet affordable, food with a lot of the local Fife and Perthshire food treasures on the menu. Lobsters, langostines, and crabs landed less than 40 metres from our front door in the harbour, fish from St Monans and Pittenweem, and meat and game from nearby farms and estates. We serve meat and vegetarian dishes, as well as fish and seafood.
