About 172 @ The Caird
172 At The Caird is a unique, vibrant, one-of-a-kind new eatery in the heart of Dundee. Transforming the historic Caird House into a place for casual and fine dining, it combines ancient charm with modern comforts to offer authentic Scottish cuisine with a tantalising Mediterranean twist.
The two beautiful restaurants and chic, elegant bar, overlooks the historic River Tay. While a state-of-the-art kitchen and innovative menus ensures there is always something for everyone at 172 At The Caird.
This is the second function we have had here this year, can't fault anything, the only downside is there is no beer on draught upstairs in function suite & you have to run up & downstairs to get a pint.
Had a very enjoyable meal and cocktails 2 for 10 pounds are amazing
Had a fabulous delicious lunch at 172 Caird it has a varied menu with reasonable prices the atmosphere in the dining area us lively and atmospheric . The only snag was that Owe had to wait a while for our order to be taken as only 2 servers were on and the place was full . Saying that this did not put me off and I would thoroughly recommend dining there .
Cocktail making class was excellent and the bar staff made the experience even better
Awesome and fantastic would sum up the experience I had at 172. They serviced over 100 of my team over 4 nights and everything was perfect. Claire - the manager ran these nights with perfection and cannot thank the chefs/kitchen staff and the overall team enough. Very memorable and wouldn't hesitate to recommend or visit here again.
Our latest dinner at The Caird 172, excellent as always. Keep up the sterling work!
We want to say that the waiting staff that served us were great. We gave 1 star for service because the food was very slow to come out and the place was not particularly busy. Equally we had all pre-ordered the meal so they knew what we were having. The lamb in the main course was rather tough as well. Overall enjoyed the experience but the service let it down.
We chose this venue to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary...... what a day we had, it was fabulous. Part of the outdoor seating area was set aside for approx 35people with buffet. The buffet was 1st class and all our guests commented about the quality of the food. All in all a very enjoyable day was had by all. Thank you to staff and management.
I booked 172 @ The Caird for my graduation meal. I had the best time- could not be happier with the service and the food and menu was excellent! It was also really lovely not to be required to give our table back after the meal as this meant we could sit in the bar and have a drink before the meal. The whole experience was really special and I would not hesitate to recommend.
Exemplary service as always from Adam. The staff are so helpful and accommodating. The sharing platter is incredible value, interesting and plentiful. Definitely intend to return.
We had booked the cocktail masterclass for our team. We all had a fantastic time. The staff ( Robson and Sam) provided excellent interaction leading the class with charm and skill. Would definitely recommend this for both small and large groups to have some fun whilst sampling the excellent cocktail menu. We will definitely be back. Thanks to 172 @ the Caird for a fabulous afternoon.
Wonderful service and using an Itison voucher made our trip excellent value.
Went to the Caird as part of an Itison deal Food was excellent. The Caird is just so lovely overlooking the Tay.
Great night. Food was excellent as were the staff.
The food was great as always. The service was unacceptable. Despite booking our table for 2pm it wasn't ready. We then had to wait for an hour and a quarter for our starters, and another hour for our mains. Drinks orders were mixed up too. I have a booking with the Caird in a few weeks for a conference and am slightly concerned now.
There were 44 of us for a gamily gathering. Food was good, reasonably priced and staff attentive. Very busy but we were lucky we were given exclusive use of the upstairs. And did I mention the fabulous coctails? Thanks so much for making our night a great success and we will definitely be back!
Disappointing lunch, curry tasted nothing like a curry... Chicken gravy dried on plate.. plate too hot or under lamp for too long! Asked for more gravy which arrived promptly.. if hadn’t been itison would have complained!! Doubt we will be back!!!
Had a great wedding reception here, food was excellent, good selection of drinks especially cocktails and staff was very friendly and welcoming.
My friends and I go to this restaurant regularly as we all enjoy the food and service. Will be back again soon.
