The wife and I visited for dinner after reading the excellent reviews. The whole experience was excellent, mostly, form the moment you walk in the door the front of house make you feel welcome. Our taste buds are still tingling form the different sensations form the canopies through to petit fours. Although the food is excellent, don't starve yourself before... More

we have wanted to eat here for some time and now can't wait to do so again. The Cellar doesn't cater for many diners, I would guess around 20, but the atmosphere is lovely, and the food outstanding. From the moment we went in, had drinks and canapies, through to coffees at the end we marvelled at the taste and... More

This restuarant is so honest. The food is wonderful. The service informal but professional. The prices very fair for such refinement. Come here to experience modern truly fine dining. Nothing else in the area comes close to this perfection.

Stayed two nights in Anstruther at the waterfront hotel which was fantastic. We had previously booked the Cellar restaurant well in advance as it is quite small. The food was one of the best meals my husband and I have had in a very long time. We went for dinner and had the set menu, three courses for £48. per... More

Visited for lunch today. Michelin star food over three courses for £28 per person is amazing value. the lunch menu comprises 3 choices for each course. We started with one beetroot and gouda dish and one crab dish. Wonderful, fresh and a taste of things to come. (Forgot to mention the tasty AmuseBouche on arrival...) Then for mains we had... More

Booked for lunch today, been a long time since last visit and had heard good things about it. Started off very well. The canapés were delicious. Bread lovely. Starter of Crab was yummy, but sadly it all went down hill from there. The lamb main was a mixed bag. Lamb was cooked nicely but had little flavour. The separate slice... More

The Cellar restaurant, long recognised for good food and dinning ambiance in Anstruther, has under its new ownership finally achieved a Michelin Star, something that (in my opinion) should have happened 10-years ago when we first dined there. A lot has changed in the 10-years except, I glad to say, the quality of cuisine. We were a group of four... More

I have to admit that I have been a bit disappointed with fifes Michelin restaurants. The peat inn didn't quite hit the mark and sangsters (now shut) was a long way short of Michelin standard. But the cellar I'm glad to say was well worth the visit. The setting is stunning, as the restaurant occupies a building which is hundreds... More

This is a better restaurant than you might expect to find in a back street in a Fife fishing village, but is it worthy of a Michelin star? Sorry, but my answer has to be 'no'. If the benchmark for a Michelin star is The Peat Inn 10 miles up the road, then The Cellar is not in that league... More

Small unique Scottish Restaurant tucked away just off the main street in Anstruther. A historic little restaurant in the heart of the East Neuk. Was once used as a store by fishermen for there fishing nets. And also used as a smokehouse and cooperage. It was converted into a Restaurant over 40 years ago, and is now owned by local Chef Billy Boyter and his family. The Restaurant also has a small bar selling locally produced beer and a good selection of Scottish Gins and Whiskies.
