Cannot fault the service. Food was amazing. Will definitely visit again soon.
The card reader machine was not working and we were not advised until we tried to pay the bill, would have been easier if we knew at the beginning. That said the food was great and the service was excellent.
Lovely fresh food. Nice cosy atmosphere
Service, food, atmosphere and value for money all first class. Will be back soon, thank you !
Food was amazing great customer service
Been a few times now always great food and great service . Recently my daughter chose here for her birthday meal out , loved it . Team work very hard hopefully back soon 👍
Brilliant lunch with both adults and children catered for perfectly. Will highly recommend and will definitely be back!
Everything was amazing and I would definitely return. One thing I did note however was the waitresses where preoccupied and chatting away to what appeared to be a member of staff in for a meal. This individual proceeded to hang about behind counter and kitchen area and go out the side door for a cigarette etc. Just appeared slightly unprofessional
Had a lovely lunch with friends at niche the haggis bon bons with a beetroot chutney are fabulous :)
Great service and excellent breakfast.

Lovely meal would visit again.
Have been to Niche a few time for dinner and never been disappointed. Food is amazing and great service too.
The restaurant was very busy but there didn't seem to be enough staff to cope quickly and, as a result, we had to wait for quite a while for service. Other than this it was very good.
Food was delicious, dessert was fantastic. The server was very friendly and quick service. Cute wee place, came here for our 2 year wedding anniversary for the first time and would definitely recommend ☺️
Great food and friendly staff 😀
First time visit and wont be the last. We all thoroughly enjoyed it
Food is lovely, relaxed atmosphere and good service

Food was ok No draft might beer Staff didn’t check during meal if everything was ok / good There was a guy painting outside He was in restaurant at one point I didn’t know he brushed against me The arm of my jacket got covered in paint Surely the painter should have stayed outside !
