Was looking forward to lunch which had booked. Arrived and were put at a terrible table for two which was squashed next to the cutlery serving area when there were no other customers in room. Waitress said nothing and then left us for ages. Never came to take drinks order or anything and wasn't at all busy. Eventually got up and left. Very disappointing, won't be back.
Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Food was very good. We shall return soon.
We were at The Saint on Friday evening.Very good meal. It was very busy and noisy when we arrived but it didn’t bother us. Only complaint was my friend asked for Bacardi and coke and was given something else (?havana). This was rectified once she complained.
Delicious food; I enjoyed the MacNCheese very much - really tasty! And my friend had the duck which she polished off. The desserts were also good. It was a noisy Friday night, but we were thankful to be placed in a small booth of our own for the meal, so that was much appreciated. Service was prompt and with a smile. I will be back!
Food was okay, service wasn’t too great had to ask for water 3/4 times until we actually received it.
Very nice looking restaurant. Food was ok and service to very long time to bring out meal. Been 3 times now just to make sure it was not a one off event. Unfortunately it's was not.
Good food. Restaurant let down by dirty toilets. Despite two of our group telling staff that ladies toilets were messy, nothing was done about it. An explanation given was that they were short staffed as hadn't expected to be so busy. This was surprising given it was the Easter holiday weekend in a seaside town.
We have eaten here previously and had no complaints, so Saint...get your act together. Messy toilets are not what people expect in a restaurant of your standard.
the Poor waitress.... there was only her, one person on, waited over an hour for a toaste!!!
Good food and service in comfortable environment- but very noisy due to some large groups
The table we were given would have been more appropriate for a couple rather than two friends out for lunch. My friend was hidden in the corner and did not get a feel for the place or feel that she was part of the general dining experience.
I was dining on my own and was attended to beautifully by my waitress. I opted to sit upstairs in the quieter lounge area, looking out onto the garden area.
I started with the scallops which were delicious and then had the duck. The duck came with root vegetables and a dark jus, which was tasty but the duck would have been nicer presented in slices instead of two large pieces. I had the Mellis cheeseboard for dessert-there were enough cheeses and oatcakes but the black grapes were not as fresh as they could have been. I washed all of this down with a sweet rose wine. It wasn’t cheap but I felt it was value for money.
The building is very cute. It’s decorated in an appropriately chic way. Location is very good and central. We were pleased with the salads and entrees. Scottish gnocchi is different than Italian so that is a bit of a change but not bad. Everything was good. The service is somewhat slow but all around quite nice and probably the best we experienced in St Andrews.
Soup was cold, too long for main course to come, and the chunky chips were hard. Also, this is the first time we have been charged tax on the meal.
My husband and I always lunch in The Saint even before it changed name, but unfortunately will not return.
Very accommodating especially with friend who required GF menu. She was delighted with her special GF fish and chips. Comfortable and look forward to visiting outside terrace when weather gets warmer
Lovely atmosphere, whilst busy it you can still have a conversation. Great decor too. Food was good. Local sourced where possible, it really stood out. Decent portions and all freshly made with the exception of the mashed potato that felt it wasnt that mornings. It would not stop me returning. Good service provided by welcoming, smiling staff that came over they were genuinely interested in looking after you - simple yet something that so many places lack...
Went for family breakfast and it was great . Lots of choice for the five of us , including two children , great service .definitely worth a visit .
What a great place. Love the layout and different style seating. It was quiet on the Thurs evening we went but the tables are reasonably spaced out. Can imagine it havinna great vibe on a busy evening. Service was great and the staff attentive but not overly either, which I liked. It’s not a huge menu but more than enough choice. I had the monkfish scampi which was a well sized portion and beautifully cooked. The key lime pie dessert was also delicious and presented a little differently from normal, which was a nice touch (won’t spoil how it’s served). It was incredibly well priced and I will be back when I’m not driving to sample more off the cocktail menu. Fancy grabbing breakfast there too.
Very good food and service, I would recommend this Restaurant
Food was nice but service of the male bar man was terrible and will not returning.

Waited 60 mins on food. 2 of 4 plates were acceptable,3rd plate arived 5 mins later and was cold. 4th plate didn’t arrive.
Cold food returned 10 mins later, still cold.
4th plate still hadn’t arrived.
Just what the Doctor orderedxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
The restaurant was very busy on Saturday but staff were attentive and the food was good.
We booked the Saint sometime ago as we have eaten there before and loved it and because this was a special occasion to celebrate our daughter's 21st birthday, we could not think of a more perfect place. From the moment we walked in the door the staff were very friendly and could not do enough to help us.
The meal was excellent and served again by friendly members of staff.
If you have not been her to eat before, then please take my advice and book and sure you will love it.
Well done the Saint for making our evening even more enjoyable with a fine meal and friendly staff.
Food very disappointing on this visit
Menu has changed since last visit and food of poor quality , quite tasteless
Restaurant was very busy and this may have contributed to this
Fourth visit to The Saint and have been impressed on each occasion. Great knowledge and range of gluten free food. Every one's a winner.
Really funky place, great decor and ambiance. Staff very friendly, helpful and efficient. Food was amazing, super-tasty and plentiful portions. Loved it, will definitely come back next time we're in St. Andrews.
Fab night in the Saint on Saturday
Excellent service and food
Late booking but accommodated 6 people. Food very good and good value but disappointed with late delivery of one guests main course, although cost was deducted, nice touch. Would recommend.
Booked table for 4 people on a Friday night , bar was quite busy we were shown to our table straight away . Had been recommended the steak pie on the menu and wasn’t disappointed . Not a huge choice on the menu but what was on it was varied and definitely something for everyone . Service was first class although restaurant was quiet . Food first class and value for money. Lovely decor . Would recommend The Saint and will be back.
Nicely refurbished, friendly and helpful staff. Food was great value and delicious. The ace is that it’s doggie friendly. Can’t believe how long it’s taking St Andrews to catch up and allow pooches under the table. They even have doggie biscuits. Manager could not have been more accommodating. We’ll be back.
Excellent food and service. Only detracting factor was location of table which was in a walk through corridor in the middle of the dining area and it felt a little detached but overall excellent!!! Will definitely be back!
The revamped and rebranded bar and restaurant is great. The food was lovely and our waitress was friendly and helpful. We were there mid week and out of season so it was very quiet but there was still a nice ambience. We will be back.
Excellent food , excellent service , we were a table of 6 and all went home happy
First visit to the restaurant as we usually have our retriever and eat in bar area , we were impressed by the decor in the restaurant, definitely be back again
Waitress attention excellent and food was lovely and good choice.
Great menu and staff. Good atmosphere. Definitely recommend!
New Year’s Day Lunch. Warm and friendly service. Food good except salad which was limp and mushy.
Went here for a birthday meal and all had a great meal. Tasty starters and main meals with good variety. Staff were good and attentive, will be back
Great experience at The Saint, excellent service from professional friendly staff! Food was perfectly cooked and tasted amazing! A great Christmas Eve dinner - Thank You
The food was nice not outstanding, didn’t like the seating we wanted a table for two in a nice quiet area instead were in a big row like school dinners. Too close to another couple. No privacy.
