Samphire Seafood Restaurant


Mid Argyll, Argyll & Bute
19/03/2020: Went here today for lunch during the height of the worlds corona virus. We were only people in the place for duration of our meal which was quality. Lovely venue and waitresses who were polite, knowledgeable and friendly. I got cod wrapped in pancetta, wife got 1/2 lobster which was bumped up to full lobster at no extra cost as owner felt they were on small side. Waitresses were chatty and kind to my chatty daughter, all in Very happy with our lunch, highly recommend.
18/03/2020: Popped in for lunch on the way home after a recommendation from a friend, and we were not disappointed. Lovely little restaurant, very friendly staff and beautiful food! We will definitely be back!

The Grange at St Andrews


St. Andrews, Fife, 30-45£
09/03/2020: We had the private room with a roaring fire which made our special occasion even more special. The food that we had was spectacular! We covered the majority of the menu and none of the dishes disappointed. The additional amuse bouche complimented perfectly. Finally the service was outstanding - nothing was too much trouble.
09/03/2020: Have eaten here several times before and visited again on Saturday evening. Love the rustic setting and cosy bar area where we had a cocktail pre-dinner. Service always friendly & food always of a high standard. The beef main course in particular was delicious, although so was the rest of the meal. Well worth a visit and reasonably priced for the quality of the food.

Etive Restaurant


Oban South and the Isles, Argyll & Bute
02/03/2020: The food at Etive was stunning. The presentation, smell, taste and portion size were all perfect. Each course was explained to us and we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. We didn't drink much but the drinks menu is extensive and there is something for everyone.
02/03/2020: I wonderful night out, with fantastic food, wine and all helped along with David - front of house, who is attentive, informative and friendly without being overbearing. If in the Oban area you must go. Or even make it a reason to visit Oban even.

The North Port Restaurant


Perth City Centre, Perth & Kinross
12/03/2020: Second time at this restaurant and was every bit as good as the first time. Service, food and wine all excellent. Lovely bread with a parsnip dip and sage butter before the starters. I had haggis, neeps and tatties to start followed by the most tender beef cheeks. I then had the rhubarb for dessert with wee marshmallows and ice cream - all courses were delicious and the bottle of Rioja was lovely and smooth. Atmosphere in restaurant is great and will definitely be back. It is fairly expensive but worth it for special occasions. Only criticism would be that toilets are up a spiral staircase which is not easy for people like me with mobility issues.
04/03/2020: I caught up with an old friend at North Port and what a great evening. Service was brilliant and food to match. We had a haggis starter and rabbit main with cheese course and a lovey Pinot Noir with port to finish. Lovely atmosphere, attentive staff and everything else to match

Strathearn at The Gleneagles


Strathallan, Perth & Kinross, 60-100£
11/03/2020: Delightful dinner. Beautiful dining room and lovely table arrangement. Friendly and efficient service from the welcome to waiters and sommelier. We felt very cosseted throughout. Starters (Orkney scallops and a lobster ravioli) and mains (Tweed Valley beef and wild venison) were all excellent. Delicious classical cooking and hearty portions. Garnishes with the mains were very good indeed. Desserts were fine, though my pineapple parcel was better than my wife’s vanilla parfait (texture a little hard). Shame the tarte wasn’t on! Great wine list, and we kept it sensible with a lovely SA cab sav. All in all a really very enjoyable evening. It’s not cheap but the whole experience makes it worth it. Knocking on the door of 1* Michelin we thought and nicely devoid of superfluous amuses etc. Considering the number of covers here it’s an impressive operation. Would love to come again.
06/03/2020: Was lucky enough to dine here for my birthday. What can I say? From entering the restaurant to leaving, not one negative. The atmosphere, decor, music all make the dining experience special. The food is out of this world. The staff are wonderful, they are on hand to cater for your every need, top up drinks, clear plates, replenish cutlery, serve food, but never intrusive. They make you feel so welcome and that nothing is too much trouble.

Everest Inn


Dunfermline Central, Fife
30/03/2020: We regularly order food from this restaurant and have never been disappointed! This occasion was as lovely as ever and thank you again, Jamil for your friendly advice and help! Highly recommend this restaurant.
19/03/2020: Non amiamo particolarmente la cucina indiana, almeno quella proposta in Italia, ma per una sera abbiamo voluto fare un'esperienza diversa, un po' per le ottime recensioni del ristorante, un po' perchè si tratta di una realtà importante nel Regno Unito.

Annaya's Grillhouse


Helensburgh Central, Argyll & Bute
24/03/2020: I have been to Annaya's a number of times, both for takeaway and Indian food to eat in. Every time I visit I feel extremely welcome and the service is personal and friendly with the owner explaining the specials to us and making recommendations. I used to have quite a habit of always ordering the same thing when I went for an Indian, until I started eating here! It's always a struggle to choose between so many delicious sounding dishes but I am never disappointed. Most recently I had the Lamb Desi which was mouthwatering and the naans and flatbread which we had with our meal were excellent too. I can't wait to eat here again soon.
19/03/2020: We popped into town to pick up some food and decided to have something from Annayas. In this current climate we expected only to get a takeaway, instead the restaurant was open and we were treated to the most delicious meal, with a few extras thrown in for free.

Andrew Fairlie @ Gleneagles


Strathallan, Perth & Kinross
14/03/2020: This was the best meal we have ever had in a restaurant and we have been to a lot. The most notable part of the night was the service. They have got the balance of professionalism and friendly/welcoming just right. None of your stuffiness that you get in other Michelin restaurants. We opted for the 7 course tasting menu with matching wines. We were easily able to swap out courses we didn’t like the look of and this was actively encouraged. I have a nut allergy and they went out of there way to ensure I was confident that none of the dishes contained nuts. Even reminding me when my partners dish had nuts in it so I couldn’t steal any of hers! Very different experience to the Balmoral that served me nuts twice! My partner was pregnant and they were able to adapt some of the dishes to ensure products were properly cooked through. The knowledge of the staff was second to none. I asked one of the waitresses about the sourcing of the vegetables and she was able to detail the location of the garden and even amusing anecdotes about the head gardener! Our meal lasted for 3hrs but at no point did we feel rushed or like we were waiting for food. A huge amount of attention to detail goes into managing this for over 50 covers all eating numerous courses. It’s clear why this restaurant maintained its 2 Michelin stars last year. They deserve it! Any downsides? Perfection doesn’t come cheap. You won’t get much change out of £500 quid for a couple going for the basics! Worth every penny though I would say.
09/03/2020: As a bit of a Michelin journeyman across Europe it’s getting increasingly difficult to separate the fine margins at the higher levels. This experience however really shone in every way and whilst not the most innovative meal I could have sampled in Scotland the tasting menu and wines we enjoyed was flawless. Well done to all.

Cafe Tabou


Perth City Centre, Perth & Kinross
30/03/2020: Went to celebrate here with my bf. Had a shared steak, served beautifully on a hot stone with gorgeously tasty vegetable sides. The steak itself was mouthwateringly tender and cooked just as we'd asked. The butter sauce I had with it was perfect.
14/03/2020: Excellent food and wine we really enjoyed this restaurant I’d say the best in Perth. Lovely food and service.

The View Restaurant


Tay Bridgehead, Fife
26/05/2020: We had our first takeaway meal from The View way back on Mother’s Day in March just as all the Restaurants were told to close. It was fantastic and I should have posted a review at the time!
20/03/2020: Thank you Stephen for a wonderful Take Away. We hope to do this weekly. Loved all our courses especially the outstanding sticky toffee pudding. Well done for this wonderful intitiative.

The Seafood Restaurant


St. Andrews, Fife, 45-60£
24/03/2020: We visit this excellent Restaurant several times a year and more often than not in the Winter when they put on incredible offers. We also go on special occasions, but no matter when we go, we always find friendly, attentive staff. We also find the food to be first class, whether we are paying the full a la Carte menu price, or enjoying one of the special offers. We specially enjoy Lunch in the Winter as we have the most stunning outlook over the West Sands and St Andrews Bay. We always ask for a window table and have been lucky most times! The freshly baked bread is scrumptious and one of the few times ( apart from The Ritz! ) when my wife will have bread with a meal! The whipped salted butter complements the warm bread - delicious! Portion sizes on Lunch offers may be modest but they are perfectly acceptable. We sometimes have 2 courses and other times 3. We usually have some excellent Torres Esmeralda Rose which was out of stock in January this time but we had another Rose, a French one which was also good. Wine prices, in general, tend to on the high side, so it pays to choose carefully. The service is very personal and friendly and not stuffy, as you can sometimes find in top restaurants! The Pieraccini family have done a great job since taking this restaurant over and Stefano, at a very young age took it on, along with other commitments. It is our restaurant of choice in St Andrews
15/03/2020: Booked to use a voucher for the tasting menu and we were not disappointed in any way! . Lovely warm welcome and a marvellous atmosphere inside. We were seated at a lovely table where we could watch the tide going out whilst perusing the wonderful menu. Service was excellent; friendly but professional and the quality of the food and wine was fabulous! I opted for the wine flight and found each selection to be perfectly paired with the course on offer and I enjoyed the description of each We found ourselves happy to try things we would not have normally (not a shellfish lover) and were glad we did as everything was delicious, well presented and packed with flovour. We hadn't visited the restaurant before this but we will definately return in the near future.

Room With a View


Inverkeithing and Dalgety Bay, Fife, 20-30£
28/03/2020: We were staying for a break in Aberdour and came upon this place by chance having walked along both beaches. It has a lovely menu (mainly seafood) and what a wonderful view. Staff were also very friendly. Will definitely be back at some point in the future
16/03/2020: We took some friends here for lunch and they loved it. The food is outstanding and can highly recommend the picnic basket starter for a taste of lots of different dishes. I had monkfish for main which was lovely and then shared the desert selection and a couple of cocktails. Great food and service with an amazing view. Go and check it out! The owners will even pick you up and drop you off at the train station!
