We loved this restaurant for its location and views as well as for the quality of the food and service. The restaurant is a large glass cube overlooking the coast. Furnishings are very tasteful and modern, and service is very friendly and polite. The food is excellent - I had the lobster ravioli starter (fabulous!) and the other two in... More

Thought I'd try it again in its "new colours".... Food still superb; immaculate fish (shame there were no oysters, mind you). Wine list slightly less good, but wine service superb.

While the staff were fantastic and the wine selection was excellent, we were slightly disappointed in the food. We had Asian scallops and the langoustine ravioli to start - the scallops were a bit overdone but the taste was actually really good. The ravioli were undercooked but again the flavour was nice. We both had the lobster parpadelle for our... More

For the best dinning view of St Andrews Bay, give The Seafood Restaurant a try. The food is not your typical Scottish cuisine but offers a more exotic presentation of fresh seafood. The portions are delicious and small but filling. The service struggled a bit to keep up with the busy crowd but overall was satisfactory. Loved the halibut and... More

Cosy but stylish restaurant. Great food and service. Right around the corner to the old course and with a great view towards the beach and the north sea.

Went to the re-launched Seafood restaurant last night. It was fantastic from start to finish. The whole restaurant has been over-hauled by Adrian and his team to become super relaxed with an emphasis on service and the best seafood with an Italian twist from the Scotland. As a local, I am delighted that this place is back to match the... More

This was my second visit. We came a few years ago which we enjoyed. Today's complete experience was exceptional! The service spot on, well done. The standard of food was the best. Fresh, flavoursome and beautifully presented. Wow. Stunning in every way. Top notch. Thank you.
