“Wonderful Setting”
Review of The Rookery

The Rookery
Ranked #14 of 26 Restaurants in Carnoustie
Description: For as long as anyone can remember, crows have made their name in this area. In fact, legend has it that the old Scots name, ‘Craws Nestie’ is where our much-loved Carnoustie got its name. Over the years these resourceful, community-minded birds have made their home in our coastal town, as, like golf, they belong in this challenging and formidable place. They call it home. We call it The Rookery.

This is a very new restaurant overlooking the championship course at Carnoustie. The ambiance of the restaurant is superb and the young staff very efficient and helpful. The food is another story. The food is way over priced for the quality being served. The cod was lovely but the chips served with it were terrible. The chicken was ok but there was far too much pasta in a tomato and basil sauce which was very sweet - not to my taste. Hopefully these are just teething issues and Will dealt with. I really hope this restaurant succeeds as it is in a beautiful setting.

Great venue overlooking the golf course. Good lunch and filling. Staff very friendly. Upstairs in the clubhouse. Downstairs is the merchandise area.

Visited The Rookery restaurant today for lunch and unfortunately did not live up to the media hype or it’s own online advertising.

Very disappointing, at least you have the view of Carnoustie links. unless it improves won’t be returning.
