I feel the previous OMG has been posted spitefully by a coward who has never eaten in the restaurant. Their account of their visit is fiction - made up to try and cause problems - what a coward !!!!! We all pity you - that you should be so pathetic !!!!!

Second time I have had the misfortune to be at this restaurant, the chef should not be allowed any where near a kitchen . I ordered a fillet steak medium and I got a piece of RAW meat with red blood all over my plate, When I complained the chef came out and swore at me , Much nicer restaurants... More

I have requesting that this review gets removed from a TripAdvisor. This is utter lies and complete fantasy and won't be tolerated. Our chefs have never come out front of house and sworn at anyone. We stand by the standards we are known for. More

Decided to go out for the New Year and chose the incredible deal offered by the Wee Restaurant to see the New Year in with a five course meal, coffee and drink of your choice to toast the year ahead. The evening started at 8.45pm ( for everyone) and even though the restaurant was fully booked the service ran like... More

Spurt of the moment visit for us after reading positive reviews. We found the choice very limited. Set menu offered 2 courses £26 pp with supplement for choosing steak. Only other option was fish or risotto. Cream of leak & potato soup was as it said nothing special & Luke warm. Hubby had duck which was presented nice & tasted... More

A cosy and comfortable wee restaurant placed picturesquely between the (at present) two forth bridges. My sister, my son and I visited for lunch and were not disappointed. We coincidentally all chose the same - scallops as a starter and sea bass on udon noodles and a Thai broth as a main. We attempted to share two sweet dishes between... More

I visited last week with my son and everything was perfect. The food was excellent as was the service. A lovely wee restaurant in a stunning location near the Forth Railway Bridge. We'll worth a visit.

It was a great surprise that my brother booked dinner for us during a recent trip back home to Scotland. Although Craig and Vicky now oversee the second restaurant in Edinburgh the high standards of excellent food still remain. It always a delight to eat here and will look forward to my next visit to NQ.

It makes the freshest food, beautifully cooked and presented in a relaxed, friendly intimate space. No fancy prices, just terrific service and quality. What a find!

Very good and reasonably priced set lunch. Usually full so booking highly recommended and they also now have a sister restaurant in Edinburgh although not been to that one yet. Like its' name suggests, it is wee and somewhat cramped inside when full. 2 courses for 18 quid - what I remember best was their extremely light gnocchi, which I... More
