    We had a wonderful meal for my husband and father-in-law’s birthday. The food was delicious, the staff were friendly and attentive and the restaurant itself was welcoming. We’ll definitely be visiting again and would recommend to our family and friends. Well worth a visit.

    This is the first time I have been to The Selkie but it certainly won't be the last. My friendship group consists of one vegan, one vegetarian, one pescatarian and a meat eater. Every dietary requirement was catered for. The food was amazing. I would definitely recommend here

    Had a fantastic date night dinner. The restaurant is small but perfectly formed. The service was great, friendly but not pushy and the food is fantastic. We had the chef's selection which was tapas. We had lovely garlic prawns, halloumi, patatas bravas, beef cheek and chicken with pineapple jam, all of it lovely. Good value too.

    Get the Chef's selection and a Drumstick (even if you don't like gin!) and you'll be very happy. Must-Try in Dundee.

    This was a spectacular experience. It’s a fixed 5 or 8 tapas course. The food was absolutely spectacular. So delicious and beautiful presentation. I would highly highly highly recommend going to the Selkie… perhaps for several days a week!

    It is a tapas restaurant and there is no menu as such. You select whether you want 5 or 8 courses. The chef takes it from there. It was a dining adventure that did not disappoint. Our dishes were creative and well prepared. Small plates were big on flavor. Our servers were capable and charming. Delightful discovery in Dundee.
