Lucky or unlucky, we picked the night the PM had made the announcment that all pubs and resturants were to close because of coronavirus, this never put a dampner on our visit.The reception we recieved was very good and were shown to our table to be greeted by our very polite and knowledgable waitress. We had chosen the 6 course tasting menu and were not dissappointed all the 9 plates of food we recieved were very tasty even the first course which we had to send back because of a rogue hair, the food was replaced and it never detracted from our experience.We shall return

Fabulous Sunday lunch. It was a little slow getting started and a little chilly in the room (until the sun came out) but the food was perfect and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Started poorly with my reservation being automatically cancelled for no apparent reason - rebooked at an earlier time & we were the only two in the café. Food was not particularly inspired and service unexceptional. No optin but the tasting menu which I took the paired wine - for £100 I expected better.

The Newport provided exactly the lunchtime experience we were hoping for - a varied and reasonable menu, and with a super view included. The food was delicate and sophisticated, the staff friendly and knowledgeable. The tasting menu would definitely be worth trying - we'll be back.

Fabulous meal out for my husband's 60th. We loved the tasting menu and the view out over the Tay.
Even tho it was dark the moon, stars and lights of Dundee were quite spectacular....as was the food. Delicious starters and six not too little plates filled with wonderful flavours. Husband a carnivore and me a vegan both enjoyed a full range of dishes. My particular favourites were The Humble Onion and the Jerusalem Artichokes with trompettes, celery root and caramelised soya.
Definitely worth the money.

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.

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.
