Stopped in for a coffee and a cake - both were lovely. The lunch menu on offer at the time looked tasty. Nice place to visit!

The view is just what you get here. A lovely view while you eat. This is not pub food, it's more expensive and high end dining. The atmosphere at the view is nice and a little relaxed. The menu had a choice of 4/5 starters, mains and deserts. There was also a little menu of light bites. My boyfriend can't... More

We had lunch here. The food was excellent, reasonably priced and the menu had a good variety. Service was friendly and you can see why it is called The View as the view from it of the Tay Railway Bridge and Dundee is truly amazing. They have an outdoor bit where you could sit and have a coffee or a... More

Four of us visited the View on 4th April 2017. We were actually met at the entrance by the owner/chef which was a nice touch, and immediately shown to our table. We were quickly asked by the waitress if we would like a drink, which came very quickly. After studying the menu which was just about the right size and... More

Went courtesy of two itison vouchers, as a family of four the youngest being 13. Lovely relaxing atmosphere. Staff friendly and attentive . The exceptional high quality food was only slightly let down by the Melba toast ( soft and a little stale). We will definitely be returning with or without a voucher. The view from the restaurant was beautiful... More

As we arrived the sun was setting and the sky was red behind the Tay Rail Bridge, A wonderful "view". After being shown to our table by a friendly member of staff there was no delay in taking our order from an excellent menu. The food when it arrived was excellent and we would certainly recommend the restaurant as a... More

We had a meal here last night, courtesy of an Itison voucher. As was the case when we have visited on previous occasions we were not disappointed. We had the pear, walnut and blue cheese starter and the spring roll stuffed with smoked brie. Whilst both were lovely, the main courses stole the show! The pheasant breast was moist and... More

Came here by default as our usual restaurant in Dundee was fully booked. We were not disappointed. The early evening view of the Tay railway bridge was breathtaking. The service was friendly and helpful, and the food was quite simply delicious - the perfect place if you want to enjoy a really tasty meal with a good choice of high... More
