    The meal at The Selkirk in Broughty Ferry was absolutely amazing. The restaurant was lovely and the staff were so nice and very friendly and helpful. The four of us all loved our food and we will definitely be back.

    The food was delicious, various tapas dishes and platters, and the staff were incredibly friendly and attentive. Only minor downside was that I was sitting in a seat with my back against the window on one of the hottest days of the year so was sweating buckets. Everyone else at my table was fine further around the table away from the window though and this wouldn't be an issue on most other less sunny days! Will definitely be back, and will be recommending to others.

    Good choice of food, really enjoyed everything we ordered. Staff were really helpful on advising what each tapas dish was and on the various platters to choose from. Nice atmosphere and friendly service make a place we will definitely revisit. Only small thing was the heat generated by the huge picture windows on a sunny day, however didn't put us off

    Food was absolutely fantastic - we had the mussels, the flank steak and crispy chicken bites amongst other things and were very impressed with these three dishes especially. Couldn't fault the staff either, service was attentive and efficient. Will definitely be back here for dinner in the future.
