South Kintyre, Argyll & Bute, <20£
18/02/2017: Called here with a friend who had previous experience! Sampled some excellent sponge cake and tea. Beware the cake portions they are beyond generous. Pleasant staff always a plus.
10/02/2017: If you get the opportunity visit this place. Beautiful cakes is an understatement. This is a paradise for those unfettered by diets. You deserve this treat - oh yes you do.Bliss.


Rannoch Station Tearoom

Highland, Perth & Kinross
15/11/2016: This was like going back to 60's. Remote railway station stunning views. Service at cafe excellent, home baking superb.
01/11/2016: I have visited Rannoch so often and been told to drop by, by so many people including a prominent MP and as I visited always out of season never had the pleasure till now. Home baked cakes, scones, clotted cream, bottled ales, warming hot toddies you name they have it covered and also have special events so check out what's on. Great walks from here and ideal stop for cyclists. You can also take the train along the most stunning track to Mallaig. Took short walk to Loch Laidon very easy gentle stroll. Or you can carry on to Kings House Glencoe. Came back to see a herd of stags at gate. Wow and double wow. Love Rannoch.


Andrew Fairlie @ Gleneagles

Strathallan, Perth & Kinross
25/02/2017: We came here whilst staying at the hotel and I had been looking forward to this restaurant for a long time, it did not disappoint but instead delighted.The restaurant is very comfortable and relaxing and it is beautifully lit and decorated.Throughout the evening we were looked after exceptionally well by all the staff, a lovely mix of extremely professional yet very relaxed and informal. The highest level of care and attention started from our welcome until our departure about 2 and half hours later.We had the 8 course degustation and opted not for wine flight but instead a very nice bottle of red which had been suggested, excellent suggestion.The delicious food started with a selection of small bites which were not on the menu, these were single tastes of amazing flavours.Our journey of eating presented us with a range of amazing dishes, beautifully presented, always carefully explained and incredible tasting. My favourite was the lobster, simply incredible..the smell and taste! We enjoyed every course but the lobster was a stand out.I would also like to extend an enormous thank you to Andrew Fairlie who kindly gave us his time and welcomed us into his kitchen to meet him and the team. I am very appreciative of this kind gesture. It was lovely to see the heart of kitchen and of course meet him and thank him for a wonderful evening.We finished the evening with coffee/tea and petit fours and just when I thought I couldn't possibly eat another thing, I managed to find just a little space for these mouth watering sweet treats. I also loved the beautiful coffee and tea cups, and I am now trying to source these..they were very different and quite beautiful.Andrew Fairlie was quite simply amazing and we look forward to another visit.N and E Nouillan

Strathearn, Perth & Kinross, >100£
21/02/2017: Every aspect of our evening at Yann's was excellent. We were greeted very warmly and invited into the lounge for an aperitif. For dinner I enjoyed the rather unusual entree of eggs Benedict, followed by a delicious steak that melted in my mouth. Some of my family enjoyed the raclette, what a great way to share a meal. The wine choice was extensive with reasonably priced options. We were sitting in the conservatory, a lovely spot with the privacy to enjoy our conversation. Service was fantastic. I will remember this evening at Yann's for a long time.
30/01/2017: The photograph of the room is accurate. The menu was varied and it has a decent wine list. Reasonable value for money. Generous helpings and nice clean toilets. Would return


The Waterfront Restaurant

Highland, Perth & Kinross
09/02/2017: While staying at the Kenmore Club for a couple of nights we used the onside restaurant for a lunch and evening meal. Staff and facilities fantastic and the food was excellent.Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Highly recommend it.
02/02/2017: Spent 4 nights at the Kenmore Club and ate in the restaurant twice. The food was excellent and no fault could be found with any of the meals. Large portions and beautifully presented. My husband said the battered haddock was the best he had ever had and not in the least soggy. All members of staff were friendly and attentive. A must if you are in Kenmore.


Vine Leaf Restaurant

St. Andrews, Fife, <20£
21/02/2017: Ate on a Friday night with friends, in a private room.The food was excellent, wine very good and service friendly and pleasant.Good menu with plenty of choice. Nice bread platter with dips, which I believe was complimentary.Would definitely recommend and would return if I was ever in St Andrews again.
20/02/2017: Went for dinner here with my friend on a Saturday night. Place was busy but the service was excellent. The meal was delicious and neither of us were disappointed with our choices. We were too full for dessert sadly as the options sounded very good.


Oban Seafood Hut

Oban South and the Isles, Argyll & Bute
13/02/2017: Hugely popular. Great fresh seafood at amazingly good prices. Set on the pier the green hut is easy to find with its flags flying in the breeze and the crowd that gathers around.
13/02/2017: Day trip to oban was looking forward to sampling fresh local seafood as advertised everywhere but when we arrived the shop was shut (maybe quite time of year)


The Grange at St Andrews

St. Andrews, Fife, 30-45£
22/02/2017: Food and wine excellent. The kids initially did not like the menu but once they ordered and started eating they loved it. The setting is lovely and the staff and owners very friendly. It is not cheap but you get what you pay for and I would say it is definitely worth it.
21/02/2017: We came here with good friends for lunch, it was amazing! Such good value £16 for 3 courses but it was Michelin star gourmet food! The staff were very attentive and really helpful in providing alternatives for children. Absolutely out of this world. Lovely time had by all & with a lovely view!


The Hawthorn Restaurant

Oban North and Lorn, Argyll & Bute, 20-30£
23/10/2016: Decided to try the Hawthorn restaurant whilst In the area and so glad we did. Lovely warm welcome in a beautiful setting. I know the chef and managed to get a wee chat with him which was nice. The food was outstanding and beautifully presented a must for people visiting the area. Will definitely return next time we are over :) Thank you all for a lovely evening
18/10/2016: Four of us went here as it was close to our B&B. The restaurant is quite small which lends a comfortable relaxed atmosphere and decor design includes stonework sympathetic to the cottage building. The service is excellent, friendly and efficient. The food was really very good without exception, with particular mention for the scallops and pork. Our visit didnt experience any issue with portion sizes as mentioned in other reviews. In fact the size of scallops and the overall pork dish were definitely substantial to say the least. Most importantly everything tasted very good and was presented beautifully.This really is a lovely restaurant for a very pleasant evening with excellent food and friendly, knowledgable service.



East Neuk and Land Ward, Fife
24/02/2017: I've probably only knowingly been to one other Michelin starred restaurant, so am not an expert on such places, but I would say that the cellar is well-deserving of its Michelin status. Friendly, courteous, knowledgeable staff as well. You will need to notify them when booking if you want the veggie taster menu. My partner had the meat and fish taster menu and was equally happy.
21/02/2017: Quite simply, the food we were served at the Cellar was phenomenal. The level of complexity in some of the dishes was remarkable with each component part adding either massive depth of flavour, supremely interesting textures or both. Although the menu is essentially fixed (with a couple of options), they were very happy to accommodate any major dislikes when asked by email before our visit.In a time when fine dining is blossoming in the central belt of Scotland, what sets these guys apart from their competitors for me is the supremely friendly and laid-back manner of the front of house staff. This is a really nice surprise in a restaurant of this standard as I've previously felt that the attitude of waiting staff in fine dining establishents is so formal/scholarly that it verges on hostile. The staff here also demonstrated a good understanding of the components of each dish. I can only think of one other fine dining establishment in Scotland that even attempts to pull off this combination.It was also really nice to see that the front of house staff very obviously have a friendly relationship with the chef patron.The wine list is refreshingly well priced with some very drinkable bottles for £40 and under: again a rarity for a fine dining restaurant inn Scotland.We will definitely be back. If you're looking for a special meal in central Scotland, I would give serious consideration to heading out of the big cities and giving this place a go. The money you save on wine in comparison to other restaurants will pay for your bus fare.


Room With a View

Inverkeithing and Dalgety Bay, Fife, 20-30£
24/02/2017: Have to agree with other reviewer best restaurant in Fife. Food is delicious and beautifully presented. Menu changes frequently so always different choices to try. Hannah and staff make you feel welcome. Last but not least the chauffeur service to and from the station is much appreciated.
23/02/2017: This family run restaurant is a revelation. Beautifully prepared and incredibly fresh fish and seafood, much of it landed in the local harbour. A destination in its own right with friendly service and a delightful ambiance. This is a must for anyone who really appreciates good cooking.Fabulous views over the Firth of Forth


Peat Inn

East Neuk and Land Ward, Fife, 60-100£
24/02/2017: The Peat Inn is a small family run restaurant just outside St Andrews. To start the evening I chose the cured salmon in a potato crust, Exmoor caviar, served with a small pouring jug of scrummy warm cucumber and oyster cream...... the salmon had an interesting taste and texture.... The Chef had cleverly combined the flavours of smoked and poached salmon into this dish which worked well and melted in the mouth after tantalising your tastebuds for just the right length of time!My friend chose the deep fried tempura and slow cooked casserole of calamari, parsley and seared Orkney scallops which she described numerous times as 'Amazing'!!!For our main we both went for the 60 day dry-aged rump of Scotch beef, served on a bed of creamed Jerusalem artichokes, with deep fried bone marrow, young parsnips and a delicious red wine sauce. The vegetables were good and the beef flavoursome - I found the meat a little tough but my friend felt hers was just right.The portion sizes were good and we did not have room for a desert this time around... and so we decided to head back to the Fairmont with the remainder of our bottle of wine, friendly staff were quick to find a suitable cork, and throughout the evening were both knowledgeable and friendly, the service was therefore excellent as you would expect in a restaurant of this caliber. A small box of petit fours was a delightful parting gift - and they were a blissful combination of chocolates and zesty marmalade jellies... The Peat Inn deservedly has a Michelin Star for great food & great service - the only cause for concern were the cobbles outside which my friend in heels felt were the cause of her 'Bambi legs'. I thought the wine might also have been a factor! We will return! (Meal for two including wine £150).
21/02/2017: Ate on Saturday night with a group of friends.Pleasant area near the fire for drinks. Was surprised how many dining areas there were, it is bigger than I thought.We had the tasting menu which was very good.The one thing that let the place down, we felt, was the service. We had to ask for the wine to be poured, then gave up and started serving ourselves. We had to ask several times for our water glasses to be filled.This just took the edge off what was a very pleasant evening.

Brig o' Turk Tearoom

Trossachs and Teith, Stirling
24/02/2017: Very quaint tearooms picturesque settings, has a delicious meal server very friendly will definitely be back
13/02/2017: Great stop off for coffe and cake or a light lunch. Best of all is dinner though, Veronica is a delightful host and the food with a Hungarian flavour is high quality in an unusual setting. Great for family occasions or a special dinner for two.


The Tailend Restaurant and Fish Bar

St. Andrews, Fife
24/02/2017: First place I head for, for my fish & chips when I arrive in St Andrews, Scotland from London! The quality of the food, and the staff are simply the best! Couldn't ask for more. Thank you to all in the fabulous "Tailend"
23/02/2017: This is a great fish and chip restaurant that gives you the option of how you want you fish cooked: fried, grilled or battered. The seafood is very fresh and was absolutely delicious. You can dine in or takeaway.The service is great and the prices are very reasonable.
