We went here to celebrate my partner's birthday and it couldn't have more perfect. We had excellent service, the view was fabulous, and the food, wine, and digestifs suggested by Daniel were superb. They even kindly brought out a dessert with Happy Birthday on it. As they had just opened on the Monday, it was a great find and we... More

The star of the show really as we hadn't expected much from a soup starter. Shared the seafood platter between two, and threw in an extra order of scallops. Delicious although I do prefer crab and lobster to be... More

I treated my Granny and Mum for a weekend away in St andrews as they are both golf lovers. We came across the restaurant while walking back to our hotel after the round, the first thing that caught my eye was the building, absolutely stunning! I went in and spoke to one of the mangers, I recall his name was... More

The Seafood Ristorante has just opened in St Andrews this week. The iconic glass box has been taken over by new proprietors and I felt I must write a review. It is a very high quality Italian seafood restaurant with non fish alternatives. The food is amazing and there is a fantastic choice. We received a very warm welcome from... More

We had dinner here for the view. The food was great and view breathtaking. We met two new friends who had come to the restaurant under its previous ownership. We were a couple on holiday. I had the Tarbot and the husband had the crab pasta. Would eat there again.

We attended as a couple with our friends, four of us in total. The final bill was over £220 with drinks. The 'main courses' do not come with any accompaniments, I had the Halibut main, and although the fish was tasty, the portion was small and served with a pea purée and some asparagus...that was it for £30....We realise this...

I had been really looking forward to the seafood restaurant as I was expecting a really special seafood experience. I was underwhelmed by the food, and personally felt the ambiance was spoiled by one of the staff members. I don't want to make it personal, but maybe there are some diners who don't want a full resume of the wines/flavours... More
