Excellence service, and food was a wonderful surprise! I had the special- Sole stuffed with spinach crevets and tarragon- it was one of the best meals I’ve had in Scotland.
My partner had the fish and chips which was plentifully and not overly greasy. The batter was delicately delicious.
Hope to be back

Recently moved into the area and have visited the Cavaliere a number of times. Service is excellent as is the food would be perfect if the lighting was toned down a little and there were less noisy sections of the restaurant for couples. Would happily recommend.

We have been dining here for a number of years and we have never had a bad experience or a disappointing meal.

The standard of service and the quality of the food is outstanding, and great value for money.

The restaurant has been refurbished relatively recently and this creates a lovely ambiance in which to dine.

Nothing about the Cavaliere is overstated. It tries in no way to be anything it isn’t. This really does lead to a comfortable, pleasant and relaxed dining experience.

It is a pleasure to support such a nice, local and family-run business.

Saturday afternoon Birthday Treat for my Daughter. When we said we didn't want starters the table was cleared of extra settings and glasses as we did not want water either. My Daughter chose the pizza with Mushrooms I had the Salmon with lemon sauce and had cut chips....eh 6 chips in a tiny little bucket and they didn't look like handcut. The salmon was cooked perfectly although there was quite a strong smell that came from it. But it tasted fine. Desserts were ordered my Daughter chose Banana Split. I had the homemade Banoffee Pie. Presentation looked lovely but I did notice some black specs in the toffee filling and the pastry tasted stale. I ate the cream and ice cream that came on the side and picked through the rest of the pie. Decimating the portion. I adore Banoffee but this did put me off especially when I discovered the black bits were over ripe banana. The waiter noticed my plate and asked what the issue was. He then said this is how it comes. Waiting staff were attentive in the main. Later that evening I had an upset stomach and spent some time in the toilet. Not sure if it was the Salmon or the Pie. Nice enough place but not sure if i would revisit based on this experience.

The Cavaliere is without doubt the best Italian restaurant in the area. The staff are very friendly and cannot do enough for you. The food is terrific but they could do with getting a decent lager on board. The restaurant was extremely busy but we didn't have to wait too long between courses. I would highly recommend a visit to this restaurant.

This was the first time in The Cavaliere for a long time and we were very pleased with the food and the polite service given.
The restaurant was very clean as were the toilets (10/10 for that).
Ambience was lovely as the tables were placed as not to intrude on someone else's conversation.
We will certainly be making a return visit soon.

Thank You.

I absolutrly love this restaurant. We go regularly and always go for birthday meals. The staff were so attentive and made this special birthday one to remember.
The food is always very tasty and great portions. The wine list is also lovely and have tried a few different ones and have enjoyed them all.
Already looking forward to our next visit.

This has been one of my favourite restaurants for years because it’s family-run, offers great food and first class service. It has also benefited from a recent refurbishment which means it’s fresher, with a view into the kitchen, but hasn’t lost any charm! The new function suite seems popular too. Highly recommended. The staff can’t do enough to look after you and the food is consistently excellent.
