    A much needed night out was made all the more special thanks to The Selkie. The food was exceptional. Great range of dishes, all cooked to perfection. The service was friendly and attentive. The portions were perfect. We had the 5 course and every dish was so tasty. Can’t wait to go back!

    The Selkie was quiet when we arrived, did not stay quiet for long but the chatter was nice to hear. Staff were very friendly and took our order , asking about dietary requirements at the time, they were able to accommodate allergies and dislikes without an issue. The food was fabulous, we went for the 5 course tapas, although my friend could have eaten the 8 course option. I would recommend you try the Selkie

    Very disappointed have waited a while to try the Selkie, not what we expected. Limited menu food was okay but not worth the money. Service was good but could have been better always room for improvement, you want your customers to rave about your food etc, but this was not the case at all.

    Perfect as always. Came with babies this time and the Selkie were so helpful with arranging the prams/highchairs etc. Haven't been for breakfast for a while but loved the few changes on the menu since my last visit. Staff are always super friendly and as ever, the restaurant was spotless Thanks again.

    Everything from start to finish was perfect. Was greeted at the door. Our waitress was lovely, listened to our likes and dislikes. Than the dishes started to come out. All of them were cooked to perfection. We had espresso martinis instead of a dessert and they’re absolutely delicious.

    Second time at Selkie, and as good as first time. Had 8 tapas option which they list as £30pp. Came with free Sangria too (special offer). The options are 5 tapas or 8. Weren’t sure we’d manage 5 tapas each so we had the 8 between 2 people, which was grand and left room for a wee dessert. If you’re starving probably 5 each would be fine. The meal also comes with a starter platter of bread, salad, olives, balsamic oil etc. so pretty generous. You don’t order from a menu- just specify any dietary requirements and they provide a mix based on those specifications. It’s all varied and delicious home cooked food with an easy going atmosphere which very much feels like the family run business that it is. Will be back. Thanks.

    We visited the Selkie on exchange Street, Dundee fir lunch and all I can say it was absolutely amazing. The staff are very friendly and the menu is fantastic. We were told of the 'Specials ' and both decided to go with that. It didn't disappoint. The crab salad was so fresh and tasty, the soup was delicious. We will definitely be back!

    Best tapas in town. Very good value. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. Depending on night, there can be live music. 31st March they had a comedy line-up. Thoroughly recommend. Family run business who do a lot for the community.
