About Cafe Gandolfi

When I walk into Cafe Gandolfi every morning at eight o'clock, with the sun slanting through the big windows, the place is coming alive. Deliveries are arriving: bread, groceries, the fishmonger's van - and everyone is slipping easily into their routine, anticipating the first customer of the day.

Dining here is always special but in these strange times it feels even more of a treat. The wonderful food is only exceeded by the level of service!

We were not terribly adventurous in our choice from the menu - stuck to our favourite New York pastrami on a sour dough sandwich with melted Swiss cheese. Not sure if I like Gondolfi's 'new' way of serving it now: in a closed sandwich form rather than the open sandwich format I was previously used to. First world problem!

A wonderful escape and fantastic food. Fully Covid compliant with temperature checks and distancing. Seumas took the time to talk to the diners, old school laid back charm, fantastic Scottish produce and quality. As soon as the Tiers allow we will be back.

We love Cafe Gandolfi and its fabulous team, led by the inimitable Seamus. We asked our daughter to choose a restaurant for her 20th birthday lunch (and the family's last restaurant meal together before yet another lockdown) and she didn't miss a beat, replying 'Gandolfi.' A class act as always, thank you for a lovely meal. Hang in there, we'll be back! Merry Christmas to all.

Fantastic food & lovely artwork in the cafe. The staff are what make this place so great though. It was like chatting with family/friends — perfect service. Homely.

Excellent food, excellent service, excellent atmosphere every single time we go. Staff have worked so hard to make the place feel the same despite the extremely difficult circumstances for all. Merry Christmas to everyone and hope to see you sooner rather than later in 2021.Stay safe and healthy

Fantastic food as it always was, really delicious and unusual combinations and flavorful - loved every bite! Service was excellent, welcoming and made for a lovely relaxing atmosphere despite the current restricted circumstances of covid guidelines. Just wish you guys could stay open and still don't understand why the government won't allow you to sell a small amount of alcohol - e.g . 2 drinks per head to allow the business to be able to recover more quickly and add to the experience as a customer. I hope you all stay safe and are open again very soon you have done so much to make us feel safe - well spaced out and clearly following all safety precautions. Thanks so much

The warmest of welcomes upon arrival with such pleasant staff. Anne Marie took care of us and our food and time spent there was lovely. Breakfast food was of really high quality. Also noticed the great care taken over hygiene at this time. Thank you to Anne Marie and staff.
