    Have eaten at the Newport twice before and have never been disappointed. The staff are so welcoming and atmosphere in the restaurant is lovely. Food as always so well thought out, the tasting menu is an incredible experience. Also really appreciate the pace of the dining, we were there for well over 3 hours, really makes the whole evening an experience and well worth the price point. Thank you!!

    We appreciate the time and skill required to prepare the dishes we had, quality is superb. The tasting menu we had, it has to be regarded as a dining experience rather than just going out for a meal. Whilst acknowledging rising costs, we did think some of the portions e.g mackerel dish, could have been a bit more substantial…. Surely not all the ingredients are that so expensive. Considering how busy the restaurant was ( and it was), the service was reasonable, however the waitresses didn’t have the time to explain at a reasonable pace what was involved in preparing the dishes, they had the knowledge though. We will be back though.

    Hands down the best meal we’ve ever eaten or experienced. The knowledgeable staff were on hand to answer any questions and explain our 5 course tasting menu. The view was beautiful and the weather was perfect. It wasn’t too busy everyone was lovely. Each course just got better and better. It was a special occasion for us to have a lunch like this and it did not disappoint.

    Inventive and wonderful tasting menu at a reasonable price for such quality in an informal yet most attractive setting with spectacular views over the Tay. And attached to a great art gallery, convivial bar and when the weather allows, a brilliant outdoor seating area. What’s not to like?

    We arrived to find a few diners but no staff to greet us. Waited around for about five minutes before anyone appeared. Ordered a glass of white wine and a bottle of red. The glass appeared but the food started to arrive before the bottle of red was served. Had to ask two more waiting staff before eventually it came to the table. As the downstairs door was open as was the door to the Resturant there was a howling draft blowing through. Another diner got up and shut the door. Don’t understand why when there is a menu on the table telling you exactly what you are eating there is a require for the waiting staff to retell you what is in the dish. Unnecessarily pretentious in my view and actually profoundly irritating. The food was generally disappointing from every point of view. In the middle we’re two duck courses. One was Asian of type. Con fusion cooking at its worst. At the end of the meal I had to ask for the bill three times. Just after the second time of asking a waiter came downstairs grabbed the card machine out of a waitresses hand who was on her way to our table and disappeared upstairs with it. £232 for a highly unsatisfactory meal for two with horrendous service.

    8 course tasting menu was superb. One gluten free diner at our table who has never felt so well catered for or had GF food so well presented. Staff were superb. It is your whole evening as it takes around 4 hours to get through all the amazing dishes. Absolutely first class.

    We went for our anniversary dinner, we were so excited and The Newport did not dissapoint! Every course was delightful, and we had a stunning view of the sunset over the Tay from the top floor. Staff were very attentive, and despite the restaurant being almost full, I barely noticed the other patrons. This is fast becoming our fancy dinner go- to!

    Fantastic food we had the Market 3course lunch and would highly recommend it. The service was professional and friendly. The waiters had a great knowledge of the menu and described each dish very eloquently. The ambience was perfect and the back ground music was at a perfect level loud enough so you could hear it but allowed you to hold a conversation. The happy anniversary petite four plate was a thoughtful, pleasant surprise. A lovely touch. I would highly recommend the restaurant

    Our first Time at the Newport reasturant, having previously read th reviews, l agree food was to an excellent standard, staff were very frienly and knowledgeable with regard to the food menu, the table layout, l read there was two tables which were not at a vantage point, unfortunately we were sat at one of them my wife sat for an hour and 45 minutes looking at a stair well, my self sat cramped in at the table with part of a door frame behind me and had very little view of the river and bridge, the other guests were towering above blocking any views We thought what a nice peaceful atmosphere, we had been there for an hour nice and quiet until a party of seven / eight came in well my wife said to me l wish they would give them some food to quieten them down, it was our golden anniversary treat from a friend ruined, but big thank you to the chef and restaurant staff

    Very very disappointing. Portions were a joke. Presentation was their thing and not the quality/amount of food. We stopped for coffee and a large helping of apple pie and custard on the way home. If there had been a chip shop on the way home we would have stopped there!! Overpriced, restaurant was cold and the waitresses bombarded you with so much information it was totally ridiculous and totally unnecessary. I certainly wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone. Very very pretentious.

    An excellent venue. Staff were excellent in welcoming and very knowledgeable about the food served up during the tasting menu. Unfortunately some of the food in particular the duck breast and trout were not cooked to our taste. Maybe being in our 70s we are a bit set in our ways.

    We dined and stayed over at the Newport to celebrate my partner's birthday. Stunning location, very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff and the food was absolutely beautifully presented and tasted amazing. We also did the wine flight to go along with our 8 courses and this as also well worth it. Rooms are nicely presented, comfy and quiet. Breakfast is incredible. Cannot wait to go back, and would certainly thoroughly recommend.

    Very friendly Staff from the moment we arrived and allowed to check in early. Our lunch was beautiful and all ingredients on plate explained to us by very knowledgeable girl. Breakfast was just too good for words. We could only eat 2 courses! French room was beautifully decorated and spotless. Would only comment slightly that price of room was slightly overpriced but again would say breakfast made up for it. Would like to come back in the future for evening taster menu.

    We booked with the intention of trying the tasting menu, and were really pleased with the selection of menus that were available, we settled on the 5 course menu this time. We thought the food was outstanding, and loved the use of local produce. The 5 courses were well paced and portions were a great size. The service was excellent and the waiting staff were very attentive. A special birthday macaron topped off a lovely afternoon.
