Superb meal for valentines. The vegetarian tasting menu was awesome and the courses and snacks kept coming. We were already satisfied by the desserts, but found a little room for those too. A special occasion made more so by the wonderful food and wonderful staff. Highly recommend it!

Beautiful food, amazing flavours in lovely surroundings. We were given two pieces of fudge on leaving, which was nice, but it would have been better if it was served along with our post lunch coffees.

We have been wanting to book a table for a while and we absolutely loved it. The food was gorgeous and the staff were lovely. It was a miserable night outside so not much of a view but that really didn't matter and we walked home in the rain on a food high. Will definitely be back.

Excellent as always. Every course on the tasting menu was a taste sensation. The venison course and celebration of the crab dish aka crab happiness were definite highlights of a flawless evening. Fabulous service and ambience too. We'll be back!

The food was delicious and every course was well thought through and presented beautifully. The serving staff had been well trained and were clearly passionate about the food they were serving. It felt very much an experience rather than ‘just going out for dinner’. Can’t wait to go back!

I love The Newport. I've watched it grow under new ownership and a fantastic refurbishment into a great asset for the town of Newport-on-Tay. Newport is lucky to have Kelly, Jamie and all their staff right on our doorstep. The food is amazing, the location is stunning and we always come away knowing we've had a great night out in a local warm and welcoming establishment. Keep doing what you all do so well. Highly recommended.

Overall we had a nice stay/dinner. On our arrival it wasn’t very clear where we should go to check in so found ourselves in the restaurant! amongst the diners, which wasn’t ideal.The girl was less than friendly. No greeting. The staff at night need to be trained on a higher level. We hardly had sat down and they wanted to know what drinks we wanted. Also what main course? They seemed very stressed ! The dinner was lovely also breakfast, so hopefully the staffing can be addressed.

We visited for a birthday meal and can honestly say it was outstanding. The attention to detail is incredible and the view from our table was amazing.
Staff are incredibly knowledgable and nothing is too much bother.
Only negative is we hadn’t visited sooner!

We enjoyed the tasing menu very much, some very creative dishes and a lovely winter salad with a mix of warm and pickled roots for a lightly smoked cod and excellent main dishes. Think there was just a little too much food for us but a very good dining experience.

Very good food, plenty of little bites. A bit too salty in places, otherwise very tasty. A good feed ie neither too much nor too little. Great breakfast though coffee could have been better.

We visit The Newport Restaurant as often as it is possible for us do so. We love it!
The staff are always friendly yet professional. The food quality and presentation is second to none.
This time we enjoyed our first experience on a Sunday. It blew us away! We can't wait to return again.
Thank you to all of Team Newport for looking after us.

If they could add a sixth star I would. Incredible tasting menu, would recommend to everyone. £55 a head isn’t cheap but this still proved phenomenal value for money given the quality of the meal.

It's a great pity the standard of service does not match the quality of food. The initial response from the server - "you're early" - was not a great welcome especially as we had driven 40 miles to get there. As the meal progressed the server did mellow and became quite personable but by that time the mood had been set. The appearance of the servers could also have been improved by having clean aprons. The restaurant was also quite cool with a significant draft coming in from the big windows. This restaurant has great potential but more attention needs to be paid to details especially related to the quality of the experience for diners. We will return but only because of the exceptional quality of the food. Let's hope the quality of service has improved by then.

So wanted to enjoy this local restaurant but ufortunately my experience wasn’t great.
Staff polite but service extremely slow. Drinks not offered, we had to ask. Large fish bone in starter. I found the food style over substance. Very expensive for quality on offer.

First time at The Newport and we loved it and have following comments;

- the food was delightful and excellent value (£55 for 6 course taster)
- the service was very good and we were well looked after
- it was great to see the chefs delivering the food at times in the restaurant, really nice touch
- the petit fours choice in the big wooden box was brilliant, again, a really nice touch
- overall, the amount of work put into the whole establishment is incredible and we will definitely be back
but..
- the meal was very long - 4 hours in total. We had the lovely snacks before the first course officially arrived, however this took 1 and a half hours! So yes, it was a bit long and the chairs not that comfortable to be sitting that long. Might bring a cushion with me next time.
- did not expect to enter restaurant via rowdy pub with football on. We were 10 mins early and asked to have drink in the pub, which I didn't enjoy at all - sat next to a group of drunk men, one of whom let off wind at one point, a complete stench and disgusting. Not how I imagined beginning the evening, think you need a more private waiting area for dinner guests...and we didn't know we could enter the restaurant via the car park at the front (we were parked on the high street).
- the restaurant was cold, big glass bi-fold doors, un-lit stove sat there, such a shame....will bring a big jumper next time.

This was our 3rd visit, but first lunch. It was very nice to be in the daylight, as there was more light than usual. Same friendly knowledgeable service, delicious well-presented food and the Market Lunch menu selection was ideal for a vegetarian and a meat eater. We were pleasantly full afterwards.

Always a pleasure to dine at this restaurant. We would love to come here more often but we live too far away.
Everything is excellent, from the welcome, food & menu choice, drinks, service, quality, atmosphere.
We really love the Mock-tails & Austrian Wines.
Look forward to our return. Soon!

Had a gorgeous meal - for me it was home cooking meets high end dining. The food was delicious and very relaxed. The staff were charming.

The only criticism I have was when we first walked in. The bar area was not very welcoming and none of the bar staff acknowledged us.

Small criticism on what was a great evening - will definitely be back.

As regular, local customers we still can't believe our luck having The Newport on our doorstep. The attention to detail, ingredients, flavours are consistently world class and we are usually further delighted by some surprise or other. The staff are always fully informed about what they are serving and this adds to the experience.

Having been to a variety of different vegetarian tasting menus, Newport did a great tasting menu for vegetarians. The starter with smoked beetroot was outstanding. The waiting staff had the right balance being both attentive and friendly and giving you the appropriate space to enjoy your food and company.
