The food is fantastic. The Cullen Skink is a must although it's very filling. It's very difficult to pick from the menu as everything is delicious. Excellent service and ambience. Well worth a visit or 10.

I really enjoyed an evening out at Cafe Source, underneath St Andrew's in the Square. Food is always excellent. Certainly somewhere I can always take friends too. They are always impressed.
