A good neighbourhood restaurant, set on the banks of the River Tay close to Queen's Bridge and next to the council offices.
Chef/proprietor has built up an excellent network of local suppliers, and these he uses to the full in his seasonal menus. As summer version listed 'Cream of Courgette & Lemon Soup'; 'Homecured Scottish Salmon with CeleriacRémoulade & Horseradish Crème Fraiche'; 'Half an Arisaig Lobster & Mango Salad with an Avocado Sorbet' and 'Chilled Roast Wood Pigeon with Foie Gras Mousse, Rémoulade & Hot Blackcurrant Sauce' among the starters.
'Wild Mushroom Risotto with Aged Parmesan & Truffle Butter'; 'Baked Whole Plaice with Shetland Mussel Butter, Courgettes & Jersey Royals'; 'Blanquette of Lamb with Sweetbreads, Crumbed Shank, Peas & Fried Polenta' plus items from the Grill - such as 'Calf's Liver with Pancetta, Sage and Sultana & Shallot Sauce' and various top-quality Steaks.
Those with a sweet tooth might be tempted by 'Sticky Toffee Pudding with Butterscotch Sauce & Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream' or 'Pistachio Crème Brulée with Hot Cherry Compote & Amaretti Ice Cream' - while their selection of Artisan Local Cheeses might also be too hard to resist.
