Inverkeithing and Dalgety Bay, Fife, 20-30£
10/07/2017: Beautiful location and good fish
26/06/2017: L'endroit est splendide, la vue magnifique à elle seule vaut la peine de venir y manger. La nourriture est bonne et bien cuisinée pas loin d'un restaurant gastronomique français. À l'intérieur c'est très vieillot mais ça a son charme par contre la musique est déprimante. Je conseille le lieu pour des amoureux heureux.Petit bémol l'accés reste compliqué même en voiture, c'est un chemin qui se termine par une sacrée pente.


Andrew Fairlie @ Gleneagles

Strathallan, Perth & Kinross
17/03/2017: *Spoiler alert*My standout dish on the degustation was the Roast Stone Bass. Too good !Slightly disappointed with the Roast Loin of Roe Deer. It was very pink and I thought it lacked flavour but I wasn't feeling very well at the time and normally I love venison.From memory, three of the seven paired wines were French. The most disappointing one was the Marsannay served with the venison. I thought it lacked the body needed for a game dish. The other wines were excellent - the Austrian Riesling and Californian Hildegard were both unusual (in a good way) but supported the dish brilliantly.My last comment is that when presenting the wines, the somelier waved the bottle about a lot, as if he were deliberately trying to prevent me from seeing the label. I want to hear about, taste and see the label of what I'm drinking so sorry for the spoilers everyone but overall the wine experience was interesting and memorable.
02/03/2017: thank you all at the Andrew Fairley it was a great evening we spent with you. We ate from the Al a carte menu which was stunning, the canapés were delicious and just disappeared followed by caramelised sweetbreads, wild mushroom truffle ravioli, stone bass, roast loin of lamb then we both had a quince and pear soufflé, having such diverse courses we went for excellent wines by the glass, our sommelier was most helpful and guided us to some excellent glasses! its very friendly and helpful service.See you again ...


Vine Leaf Restaurant

St. Andrews, Fife, <20£
15/03/2017: I've visited a number of restaurants in St Andrews and i'm always happy to try new ones, the Vine Leaf is number 2 in the area and number 1 in St Andrews proper, so i booked with high hopes whilst on a short break with my mother.The entrance to the restaurant is quite un-assuming, a little doorway leading to an alley which is decorated with fairy lights which is quite quaint.The restaurant decor is a cross between old fashioned and retro chique, quite difficult to work out, but it's pleasant enough.The maitre d, Ian i believe, is a charming fellow, very welcoming and happy to chat and offer advice about the town, the menu etc etc.The menu choices are large, its a set menu, two courses for £27.95 or three for £30, we went for the £30 option.All the food we ordered was OUTSTANDING, my mother doesn't have the biggest appetite but she demolished three courses no problem, the food was that good.Service was excellent, attentive but not intrusive.Only minor complaint, and it is minor, is that there wasn't much of a selection of wines by the glass, the pinot grigio i had was fine though.Basically the restaurants place in the rankings is well deserved and i look forward to visiting again.
15/03/2017: I had the pigeon dish and its was a quite excellent display both of cooking skills and the delights of this bird eat. The atmosphere is warm, friendly, attentive without being overly so. It is always a joy to eat here, the food seems to get better and better!


The Grange at St Andrews

St. Andrews, Fife, 30-45£
19/03/2017: Had an excellent lunch today. We took my mum for her birthday and she said it was the best meal she has ever had.I too thought the food was excellent, perfectly presented, delicious and very reasonably priced. Cannot fault a thing. The service was excellent and the views are beautiful over St Andrews and the sea.Without prompting the waitress or manager guessed it was someone's birthday and arranged a lovely birthday dish of sweet things with our coffees. Very special for my mum and a big thank you to them.Highly recommend, will definately return.Should say, fine dining experience, but not prices.
10/03/2017: I'm not going to go into food detail here suffice to say it was a beautiful meal. The owners and staff are very friendly and attentive. If you're in the area this is a "must visit" restaurant.


Oban Seafood Hut

Oban South and the Isles, Argyll & Bute
16/03/2017: This place is just awesome! Seafood is fresh, staff nice and friendly, and it's located on the shore. You can grab your food to take away or just sit in on the bench and munch away!
16/03/2017: Lovely people and excellent food. You must visit the seafood hut if you are in Oban!! We visited twice in 2 days, and we will go once more before we leave!


Brig o' Turk Tearoom

Trossachs and Teith, Stirling
13/03/2017: Came across this gem whilst walking, like the sign "we don't have wifi we like to talk. Food was excellent menu and specials where above average to say the least. Price, you would expect to pay more for this quality. Staff very welcoming. A must visit.
07/03/2017: No. 1 in the Trossachs and it did not disappoint!! We arrived at 1pm and were welcomed in to what appears from the outside to be a shed. Inside the tearoom is very cosy and the menu is fitting for any decent restaurant. We had the seafood chowder and curried parsnip soup, both were delicious, fresh and very good portion sizes. We then shared the chicken schnitzel and potato salad, followed by almond cake and lavender shortbread to take away. Everything was homemade and tasted delicious, very very very good. Make sure you take a drive round loch achray to find your way to this tearoom featured in the film the 39 steps, well worth a visit!!!!


The North Port Restaurant

Perth City Centre, Perth & Kinross
17/03/2017: We can't keep away from the Northport. The food, is out of this world (every time), the selection of wines is second to none and the service and hospitality is worldclass! You MUST go and experience it for yourselves. A different class!
16/03/2017: On a very cold winters evening this was perfect . Warm and friendly restaurant. The food was excellent. The lambs liver was perfectly cooked and very tasty. The chocolate dessert was to die for . Perfect evening with my parents.


Peat Inn

East Neuk and Land Ward, Fife, 60-100£
18/03/2017: After writing in to the so-called manager of the restaurant about a lunch visit, we flown in from Singapore via London to Edinburgh and drove about an hour out to Cupar village in the middle of nowhere, only to be received by the most indifferent child manager who was not only non-British/ Scottish, but also just shrugged us off for our lunch appointment.The kitchen staff were chatting and chose to ignore us calling out to them for any form of service.The restaurant was open and completely empty except for a corner room of people which seemed like a group of retirees celebrating a birthday. It was clear that the awkward and lackadaisical child manager had ignored us and chose to attend to the small corner party.If this is the sort of service one expects from a Michelin star restaurant, then you can be assured that it no longer holds the same meaning as it used to be.Never again.
16/03/2017: I visited the Peat Inn last week with my wife for a meal on a Friday evening. The venue was generally nice, although location is the middle of nowhere.Positives - friendly staff, nice venue..Negatives - We were seated in an area which resembled a cupboard with four tables, with very little background music so could hear a pin drop and the other dinners conversations. On arrival the staff didn't ask if we would like our jackets hung up, we had 4 different servers, food was average after lots of good reviews locally, atmosphere was pretty poor and I wouldn't rush back to be honest.


Starfish Restaurant

Kintyre and the Islands, Argyll & Bute
06/03/2017: went with 3 friends who all love seaffod, they were very impressed with the food.i thought that the restaurant had a lively vibe, service was good despite being very busy on a saturday night. even took som seafood too. if in Tarbert a must go.
13/02/2017: If you want to eat seafood in a fishing village they has unchanged since the beginning of time, then this is the place. A quite magnificent experience ; well worth it.


The Post Box Restaurant

Perth City Centre, Perth & Kinross, 20-30£
18/03/2017: Had a lovely pre-theatre meal in the Post Box. The pre-theatre menu is smaller than the main menu but still had a good choice. We both chose the daily specials of mushroom soup and baked cod. The mushroom soup is probably the nicest I've ever tasted and came with a lovely selection of breads. The fish was beautifully cooked and presented well too. Only had room to share a dessert but can recommend the homemade cheesecake - wonderful
18/03/2017: Great food and service here.Beautiful cod with sweet poatato purée and small cubed roasted potatoes.Dessert was a gorgeous cheesecake slice,with chocolate ice cream and berries.In was also nice and cold,which is important for me!


Coast Restaurant

Oban North and Lorn, Argyll & Bute
17/03/2017: Lovely restaurant nice atmosphere and the staff were very friendly. Food was excellent and they had a great wine list, would definitely recommend a visit.
13/03/2017: Visiting Oban for the weekend and read about this place on Trip advisor. On Friday made a booking for the Saturday night and the waitress remembered our name and request for not a window seat! Chose t h e two course menu at £14.50. Excellent value and several choices for each course. Unrushed service with polite,friendly staff. Would highly recommend and hope to visit again.


The Tailend Restaurant and Fish Bar

St. Andrews, Fife
18/03/2017: This is our new favourite place for fish & chips in the area. I had battered haddock & chips which was so fresh tasting; husband had tacos which were special & worth a taste. Kids had scampi and loved it. Free refills of chips and kids eat free on a Sunday makes this a very reasonably priced Sunday lunch! The service is great, lovely environment & food second to none. Highly recommended!
17/03/2017: First time visit, but will definitely be back sometime. Great tasting fish & chips. Chips cooked in beef dripping which were lovely. Omg just like mum used to make. Great service by the girls.


Taynuilt Hotel Restaurant

Oban North and Lorn, Argyll & Bute, 20-30£
05/02/2017: Stopped here for a bar lunch.The food was amazing,i had a hotpot and could not get over just how good it was,the staff were very nice and helpful.The hotel and restaurant have had a lot of work done to them and they are very nice.Next time we stop here it will be for an over night stay,cant wait to see the evening menu after seeing the bar lunch menu.They have a lovely selection of whisky and have many rare malts for sale.My kind of stop .
23/01/2017: From the moment you walk into this unassuming road side hotel/restaurant you instantly recognise that the staff here have real pride and enthusiasm in what they are doing, and it's also very apparent in chefs assured modern cooking with a fantastic understanding of flavours, textures and sourcing the best of the local larder. This restaurants wine list is excellent, having numerous interesting and different labels spanning all across the globe, and if you love gin then you have come to the right place as they have 40 different labels of that too. The ( choice of whiskeys is also vast ) and to help you through all this is David the sommelier who was highly knowledgeable, helpful, and gave me particularly good and interesting pairings.To kick of the meal was duck liver parfait which was well made, seasoned and had a deep rich liver flavour which you expect from duck liver. Their was also a garlic and onion consommé which was smooth and seasoned well ( if I had a criticism it was a bit watery ( I think if it had more body it would have been better ). But that's just me nit picking. And to add theatre was a tea pot with slightly scented water, in which dry ice was poured in to make a scented smoke. To start I had venison carpaccio with minus 8 verjus, beetroot, parsnip crisp, frizzy lettuce, parsnip purée, watercress. The carpaccio was well made thin and tender, the verjus adding acidity to cut through the richness of venison and beetroots being a classical and assured flavour combination with game. The parsnip crips added a lovely texture and sweetness of the purée balancing all the flavours. This dish was lovely and particularly poised. For my main I had almost a modern take on surf and turf, pan seared scallops with slow braised beef, and a purée which I think was celeriac though I'm not certain, and some crips. The scallops cooked perfectly, the beef was well mind blowing actually and was from cattle just a few miles from the restaurant and the jus was well made being nicely clarified and not overly sticky. The crisps added great texture and served on the side was well prepared and cooked vegetables.For my dessert I had rhubarb tart, with poached rhubarb, rhubarb ice cream and rhubarb creme anglaise. So I think it's safe to say this dessert was a celebration of rhubarb, the tart was good with crisp pastry, the ice cream I thought was particularly good with excellent flavour and the sherbet on the plate added little notes of acidity, again a great assured dish. I had a particularly interesting pairing ( antic consolation rivesaltes ambre 1985 ) which showed David the sommelier really knows exactly what he's talking about. I can't praise this restaurant enough, and for it to be this good this quickly I think is quite an accomplishment which deserves more recognition. Definitely somewhere to keep an eye on, as in the coming years if they keep it up etive restaurant will become in my opinion a institution for the Oban Argyll area.


Cafe Jannetta

St. Andrews, Fife
19/03/2017: Lovely tasting ice cream. Only complaint- difficult to choose a flavour with so much on offer. Lol. Fast service
18/03/2017: So many flavours to choose from, and all are delicious! We tried salted chocolate, Scottish tablet, and Irn Bru. A trip to St Andrews isn't complete without a stop at Jannettas!


Habitat Cafe

Highland, Perth & Kinross
15/03/2017: This is a great place for coffee , which was excellent . We also had beetroot and chocolate cake , which sounded a bit weird but was absolutely yummy !
08/03/2017: Popped in on a busy Saturday and was lucky enough to get a table. Choice of food was good. Had the halloumi and poached pear salad it was delicious. A lovely atmosphere. Service was quick too. Price was excellent. Definitely go back.
