Wonderful food. I had Lobster (locally caught) with a great pesto sauce. Very window view of the water and fishing ships. All our meals were great. I loved the art around the walls.

We visited on a Thursday evening with a group of eight to enjoy a farewell meal with some relatives from America before they departed for home. We found ourselves to be instantly swept up in the charming and buoyant atmosphere which, despite the at-volume capacity,...More

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.
