Not approached by staff, after 25 minutes we had to ask for water, waiter didn’t know what beers were on draft or what gins were available resulting in our party going back and forth up and down the stairs to check, food was very average and Sunday roasts were lukewarm at best, puddings were all disappointing which was conveyed to staff. The view and atmosphere however were lovely, unfortunately this isn’t enough to convince any member of our party to go back.

Really nice refurbishment of building but too warm in restaurant with strong sun shining in our eyes. Tables too close together and felt uncomfortably close to next table. Fish and chips were huge and really tasted of very little, batter stodgy, chips too hard,heavy and oily. Mushy peas had no flavour at all. Tartare sauce had unpleasant aftertaste. Service was good.

Daily specials were not notified when menus were handed out, but we noticed later noticed on blackboard, so this is a very minor detail.Everything else was of a high standard.

It was our first visit to Boat Brae and it was wonderful from the second we walked through the door to a very warm welcome. We were led upstairs to the upper deck to a magnificent view of the River Tay. Food was delicious, hot and served with a smile. We will definitely book again very soon. Thank you.

Top quality restaurant and incredibly well designed interior. Plus it has saved an important and beautiful building which is central to the heritage of Newport on Tay.

Really impressed with service, couple of hitches with food, but they were dealt with speedily and very professionally.

I live very near so easy to pop down and therefor since you’ve opened I have been on 5 different occasions. Brunch 12:30 a friend Lunch 13:00 my husband and I with our son age 6 Drinks & Dinner 20:00 our anniversary with friends Sunday dinner - 4 adults 2 children Each experience was great generous potions and good value - only disappointment was when this Sunday morning 10:30 with a friend - the portions where surprising small and a bit ordinary. Was it breakfast not brunch? I also had an Americana with hot milk which was lovely. I asked for a second one just the same, I got a flat white instead, not a problem sending it back only the 2nd cup came with cold milk - I didn't bother sending it back but neither enjoyed it. The verdict from the friend was nice vide. She felt it was expensive for what it wad. I’ve reserved a brunch for 4 local mums next Sunday 12:00. I’m hoping they will leave with a good impression. Brunch is usually be a meal - this was more like a breakfast snack that i’d easily make at home. See you Sunday.

Great window table as requested. Service was slow but food good. Difficult to hear each other because of very noisy chatter of other tables - inevitable I suppose when it was busy - like most but not all establishments nowadays !

Avocado starter had too much pasta and not enough pesto and would have benefitted from a good grating of Parmesan and maybe a wee well dressed salad but main courses were excellent

This is my third visit.....so that is proof of pleasure, surely! However, when visiting with my husband, who has reduced mobility, I do find getting him safely into the restaurant something of a challenge, as the parking facilities are somewhat inadequate. I mention this as a guide to future customers who have similar problems.
