About The Rookery, Restaurant and Bar
Our brand new restaurant and bar located in the new Golf Centre at Carnoustie Links. With an ingredient led menu, we bring the best of Scotland to our restaurant overlooking the 18th green of the Championship Course.
disappointed with my wifes starter which was suppoesd to be Caesar Salad but in reality it was just gem lettuce cut in half with some grated cheese sprinkled on. Far too big for a starter. My main meal was the burger which was not what was expecting as it was two hamburgers which were very dense, on a single bap on a teaplate. Plate far too small, needs a dinner plate. service was very good as was the atmosphere and greeting. Overall satified wth the experience, things just need tweaking a bit on the food front.
Food delicious but no children’s menu and wine expensive but otherwise excellent
We had a lovely main and dessert and will return in the near future. Staff were helpful and polite (perhaps a little unsure but will be more confident in time).
Great first experience, the staff were extremely professional, friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and very well presented. 3 burgers and a fish and chips were ordered, the burger was well cooked with a double helping of meat, the fish was very fresh with a lovely light batter, a pavlova and chocolate pot to finish along with coffees. Would love to see a wider selection on the menu, a good steak and ale pie and a chicken dish would be a great start. It would also be great to see a bar menu introduced. All in all a lovely evening and first experience, look forward to returning.
Staff very attentive and helpful. Could tables be organised so that more people face out onto the links? Not sure green wall is ideal. And finally, a quibble: notice that Stornoway is spelled wrongly in menu.
Early days so need to modify feedback. Service and welcome by staff is excellent. Friendly and cheerful. Menu possibly a little limited but early days. Definitely on the pricey side for items such as burgers / fish & chips. Hopefully time will allow you to review and modify.
Our group of 7 thoroughly enjoyed our evening at The Rookery on 6th May. The only downside for us all was the lack of vegetables with our main course dishes -otherwise the food was very well cooked and full of flavour. Staff were very attentive and professional.
The staff made us feel particularly welcome & the food was well prepared and tasty. Portions are large so we will moderate choices next time. It was quite quiet & the room feels a bit hurriedly put together. But the views are stunning on a lovely evening. A good night out. Thanks Rookery.
Delighted to see locally sourced produce extensively used throughout the menu. Level of customer care is first class delivered by a cohesive team. Excellent standard of presentation worthy of a 5* establishment.
Very friendly and helpful staff
First class meal, a great asset to CGL. Will certainly be back
Limited choice of menu and the quality of food was disappointing. We had booked a table for four nine days before and were seated at a table which was set for six . Far too big for 4 people. It is a nice place with lovely views but it was spoiled by the evening sun in our eyes.
Couldn't fault the quality of the food and service. The staff were all friendly and efficient. All tastes were catered for on the menu and the wine list was excellent. The restaurant was very comfortable with spectacular views.
I would love to give the Rookery a 5 star review however there are a few points that could be addressed. The asparagus soup and the chowder were first class, unfortunately the main courses were a let down. The batter on the haddock was under cooked and the fish had not been pin boned. The steak was prepared on the bone but had quite a lot of fat and gristle which possibly could have been trimmed off before cooking, also the steak was not as tender as you would expect for a medium cooked. The staff were friendly and helpful but a little over attentive which you can forgive during a quiet spell on a Friday night in a new business.
Top quality food and setting
Fantastic food with service to match. Views of the Championship Course are spectacular
