I have visited The Playwright a few times in the past but only ever for the pre-theatre menu which I have previously found to be good value, combining high quality food with interesting choices.
Visocchi's Gelateria and Italian cafe has become an institution in Broughty Ferry. Much like putting on a comfy pair of slippers, going there is familiar and comforting. When I first moved to The Ferry, I was taken for ice cream at "the only place to go" in the area and it soon became a firm favourite of mine too. This family run establishment is part of the furniture and I wanted to return after too long an absence to check that the slippers still fit.
Venturing up the metal steps on the outside of The Old Flour Mill feels like walking up the fire escape of a trendy New York brownstone and the sense of industrial coolness doesn't end there.
Rocca is situated in an outstanding location whether you are a golf fan or not. We were incredibly lucky to have been seated by a window overlooking the Old Course greens, clubhouse and of course the stunning St Andrews beach.
Café Montmartre has been attracting a loyal base of customers from all over Angus, Fife and Aberdeenshire for over a decade.
Choosing a spot for lunch in St Andrews can be a daunting proposition.
On the outskirts of Aberfeldy, Perthshire and up a long winding driveway, Errichel is not a place easy to stumble across; luckily, it is a destination well worth plugging into the sat-nav.
Having walked past Torino many times smiling fondly at the Fiat 500 “parked” in the window, I hadn’t ventured inside since it replaced the Spanish tapas bar a couple of years ago.
Monachyle Mhor is off the beaten track. It is not somewhere I would have stumbled across had it not been for many friends speaking so highly of it after special overnight trips there as well as creating many happy memories at the summer music and food festival held on the estate each summer.
