The Sparking lunch menu is just terrific. Three appetisers, then 3 courses ( with choice ) plus a glass of lovely fizz makes for a great experience!
Service , setting and superb cooking all first class.

We thought the cooking and service were sublime. Really wonderful flavours. Well priced wine list. Our only concern was the bright overhead light. If it was my restaurant I wouldn’t use the blue paper napkins just a white heavy paper version. I am not sure if the tables add much to the character. We will be back and soon I hope.

This was a birthday lunch celebration.
We chose the Tasting menu. The presentations, tastes and flavours were delightful, with well timed arrival between courses. On this occasion there was a nice additional end-touch to the menu, petit fours on a plate inscribed with Happy Birthday. Well done to all the staff for a great service.

As a regular visitor to The Newport, the food and service never fail to impress. Always using local produce presented in the most innovative of ways and a delight to eat. The tasting menus are full of surprises and last night’s cranachan was just about the best raspberry desert I have ever tasted. Stunning

The meal we had was absolutely outstanding. We had the 8 course tasting menu with paired wines, which were also excellent. As well as excellent food, the service is top class - the staff find the perfect balance between friendly and professional, it makes for a lovely, personal experience.

Felt like a well ventilated space with Covid precautions taken seriously.
Food great, well presented and the tasting menu had food combinations we hadn’t tasted before.
Noise levels were probably fair. Good to start with however disappointingly one customer became very noisy as alcohol levels increased.
Definitely will return and also recommend highly to others.

The views from the restaurant across the Tay are magnificent, yet these are more than matched by the superb food produced by Jamie Scott and his team. The experience was brought to a climax with the desserts. especially the soufflés.

Amazing meal - food was amazing as was the service. Can’t recommend it highly enough. Beautiful views over the tay , friendly attentive service. We have eaten here many times and it just gets better and better. We had the eight course tasting menu and “every course was my favourite.” Saving up my pennies to return - absolutely so lucky to have this in my doorstep. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience- AGAIN

This was the first time we had dined at the Newport Restaurant and it will not be the last. The team were fantastic and from the moment we arrived the ambiance felt relaxed and peaceful. The setting on the Tay with its wonderful view towards Dundee, becoming more impressive as it got dark was spectacular. Then there was the food which completely blew us away, from beautifully cook eal to tender venison and sweet desserts. A massive thank you to all team for looking after us and making sure it was an evening to remember.

This is a first class restaurant with rooms. Not the cheapest but good value, the food is truly exceptional. We enjoyed the 11 course tasting menu and it was very interesting and imaginative. Maybe we did not need the cheese course ?
And parking might be a slight issue if the town was very busy.
