Featured St Andrews Restaurants
1. The Cellar Fish & seafood restaurant in Anstruther 24 East Green - KY10
“Excellent Scottish produce (much foraged) is creatively presented” and showcased through nine-course tasting menus at Billy Boyter’s subtly luxurious outfit, a former smokehouse. Bearer of a Michelin star since 2015, it previously served as a fish restaurant for three decades under Scottish food icon Peter Jukes.
2. Haar Scottish restaurant in St Andrews 1 Golf Place - KY16
Named for a ‘cold sea fog on the east coast of Scotland’, Haar, from MasterChef finalist Dean Banks, is part of five-star hotel Kinettles. It opened too late for much in the way of survey feedback, but early reviews in the Scottish press have been very complimentary about its sharing plates cuisine.
3. The Seafood Ristorante Fish & seafood restaurant in St Andrews The Scores, Bruce Embankment - KY16
“An idyllic location right on the shores of the beach”, unfurling majestically through the floor-to-ceiling-windows, elevate a trip to this fish and seafood “glass box”, “close to the R&A clubhouse”. “The standard of cooking is good, the staff are helpful, and the approach has the right formula to make dining so enjoyable amidst such fine surroundings”.
4. The Peat Inn British, Modern restaurant in Cupar
“Superb food, wonderful service and a perfect atmosphere… what more could one ask for?” – Geoffrey & Katherine Smeddle’s famous country inn sits a short drive out of St Andrews and would be “a hidden gem” had it not been so famous for so many years now: on all accounts “it never fails to impress” with its fairly traditional cuisine and “A+ wine list”. “I’ve been coming here regularly for almost 50 years, since David Wilson set out to create a French-style country restaurant in the middle of rural Fife. I have never been disappointed and the Smeddles have carried on David’s dream superbly. Having a place like this on your doorstep is just so good”. Top Tip – “unbelievable three-course lunch for £25, including an amuse bouche and 3 petit fours each”.
