    The ciabatta that we chose was really good. It was really large with a very substantial amount of chicken, bacon, egg mayo, avocado and salad plus a tub of hot skinny chips.

    Had a lovey birthday lunch with my partner. They had put up a birthday banner and some balloons for me which was a lovely touch. We had a main course each which was good. The staff were very pleasant and polite without being intrusive. It was a nice experience and I would definitely recommend.

    I usually like going to Apex Dundee for an evening meal, however didn't really enjoy my evening when I recently visited with hubby. The table we were put at was crushed in between 2 other tables and the seats were badly arranged at angles, so most of the night I had to twist round to speak with my husband and ended up with a twinge in my back ! I knew I should have asked to change table. Really disappointed with the menu. It seemed more like a lunchtime menu with macaroni cheese and burgers ! I was looking for something a bit more sophisticated for evening. The noise level was also rather loud. We were sat next to 2 party tables (12 and 6 people) and they should seat these tables away from couples dining and trying to have a peaceful dinner. There was also no parking spaces available. Don't think Apex Dundee will be our next choice next time. The only positive of the night was the professionalism and friendliness of the staff. They were lovely, a rarity these days !

    Booked to celebrate a joint birthday with an elderly friend. Only 4 stars awarded as there was a queue waiting to be seated many of whom were elderly with difficulty standing. However, we were seated at a table near a window as requested when I booked and the staff, although busy, were very professional and pleasant. Choices for lunch mostly bread based so again only 4 stars. Overall though would go back as the restaurant is pleasant to be in and there is parking.

    I think because it was Valentines night - it being a more busier night, some of the food was overdone. Our bill did get forgotten about and we were waiting for quite a while as well as things we’d ordered which didn’t arrive to the table. Again I put this down to it just being a busier night than usual.

    The food was served piping hot and was very good. The downside was the slow service and, on completion of the main course, we were not asked if we wished a dessert, tea / coffee. Also the printed menu did not reflect what was on the website?

    Enjoyed the lunch and the drinks. Slightly disappointed that there was a question about the 2for1 offer as we were not provided the menu for this. They said the booking did not mention this and my friend showed my booking confirmation. Surely if you have an offer on, this should be given to all diners regardless if booked or not, not everyone can use Internet but should be offered the same deal. Felt the ice cream could have been served in a bowl rather than an ice cream tub as looked like it had been bought of a nearby ice cream van!

She also made sure left over sandwiches were wrapped for takeaway, no trouble for any request. Another waitress obliged us by taking our photograph when requested and did this with a lovely smile as all staff did.

    Waitress got order wrong . We asked for side portion on olives . She added prawn skewers yo steak . The olives came at end of meal so weren’t eaten . We were charged another £9 for prawns that were on top of steak that we didn’t really want . I think as a gesture they should have at least removed prawns or olives off the bill .

    Surroundings and ambience were spot on. Service was good and attentive. The food was blandly disappointing with little or no flair or originality. A curry was served with a pile of boiled rice and a poppadum. Yes, just that. No garnish, no flourish, nothing to remember. Could have been done at home in the microwave, maybe done here too. A steak ciabatta sandwich had little to recommend it. It was lunchtime, it was food. Fish and chips was over-fried, lots of bits, basically fat, in the chips (personally, I don't like them) and too much batter disguising quite a small portion of actual fish. I suspect a lot of people come just for the location and the excellent free parking behind the hotel.
