In Scotland from Savannah, GA USA and found this place in Perth. We had their house gin, which was refreshing and a compliment to the octopus starter as well as the halibut main. Delicious meal and good service.

The food was very tasty but just not enough of it. I ordered lamb which was delicious but very small portion and the waitress did not ask if I would like potatoes or any sides. My partner ordered steak which again was very well cooked but he was not asked if he wanted a sauce. I think diners should be made aware that you have to order them separately.

While restaurant was nicely decorated albeit a little dark, and the service was very good, every dish was dry. From the overpriced scallops at £10 for two and no sauce to the pigeon which was also very dry and no sauce. The mains weren’t much better although the pork belly was very eeel cooked as were the monkfish but again all very dry? Does the chef have a problem with sauces?
Overall not a great experience they need to up their game if they are to compete

Staff were very knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. We opted for the pre-theatre menu. The options were varied and catered to all tastes. The food was delicious;the beef cheeks were cooked to perfection. The restaurant itself is warm and comfortable. There is a low hum of conversations from other tables, but it is not intrusive, does not hamper your on conversation, and actually adds to the ambience.

We had read the recent review in The National and decided to book for dinner to celebrate the joint birthdays of my wife and youngest son. We had a wonderful evening - the quality of the food and its originality was outstanding, the waitress service was swift, unobtrusive and wholly professional and the surroundings were suitably atmospheric. We have eaten in many top restaurants in the UK and abroad and can honestly say that this ranks amongst one of our best dining experiences.
