The view is outstanding, the food is okay but not as good as they think it is but the wait staff and the hostess are horrendous. Better places to go that will not be as rude

After visiting St Andrews on a gorgeous sunny day with friends, as the restaurant was recommended previously thought it was a great idea to stop by for a coffee. Upon arrival in the afternoon, we went inside to ask if we could sit on the terrace. Was told we could, however, haven't received a smile or any nice word from... More

Great new decor and very comfortable seats were the first things we noticed, the new owners had made their mark on this superbly well situated restaurant. The service was very good, the staff were attentive and helpful. Great food, delicious scallops, fantastic halibut, great choice and non fish options too. Extensive wine list, some great burgundies and a good range... More

This was a great time we had! We showed up late for our reservation when it was busy and they still held our table... off to a good start. The food was absolutely fantastic. The seafood risotto and mussels I would recommend but everything else passing by our table looked good. It is located right on the water and has... More

There are few settings that i have experienced as glorious as the one we enjoyed at Seafood Ristorante in St Andrews on Friday. The buzz from the open kitchen and atmosphere in the dining area gives a wonderful welcoming feel to go with the breathtaking views. I was not a massive seafood fan before this visit but have been transformed... More

Wow. This restaurant is amazing. What a transformation. Comfy seats, stunning seaview, delicious seafood it has it all. We had a lovely lunch, our sea bass was divine and beautifully served. I can't wait to go back for dinner and sample the wine list! Very kind hosts and waiting staff thank you.

Probably one of the best views in St Andrews looking on to the beach beside Elephant Rock, then the view extends along the West Sands and across the Tay Estuary to the Angus Coast. Every dish on the menu is tempting and the wine list is interesting,extensive and expensive. Our attentive server was a delightful French student about to graduate... More

Thank you for your review I am really glad that you enjoyed your lunch. We do offer a 2 course lunch priced at £17.95 Monday to Friday along with our la carte. As you are seated in the most expensive street in Scotland and we use the very best produce it is unlikely that our prices will decrease but we... More

Visited with friends recently on a golfing trip. Could not fault this place, food, service and location are all spectacular. I Had the hand dived scallops baked in the shell as a starter, followed by the lemon sole as a main course, both where stunning. The wine pairings suggested by the staff where also equally as good. Will definitely be... More

This restaurant has just been taken over and it changed his style to an Italian one. Not a good idea. They do not have the skills to cook good Italian food. They also try to combine this with the service of a top restaurant and they do not have the skills as well. Conclusion: to expensive and not a fine... More
