About Tatha Bar and Kitchen

With spectacular views across the River Tay, Tatha Bar & Kitchen brings delicious family dining to Dundee's waterfront
The all-day menu has something for everyone at any time of day; from brunch to lunch to dinner (and a scone or sharing platter in between) there is something for everyone.
Kenny, our head chef, operates a scratch kitchen which means that the dishes will be created fresh daily to ensure the journey from farm to fork will be as short as possible.
For a relaxing drink after work, our dedicated bar serves cocktails, wine, beer and fizz. From Thursday to Saturday the restaurant will be open until late and during summer months the Terrace will be open for dining.
Experience a delicious afternoon tea while enjoying the spectacular views over the River Tay. Our afternoon tea consists of freshly made savouries, scones and delectable sweet treats all served with unlimited tea in the beautiful surroundings of Tatha Bar & Kitchen at V&A Dundee. Afternoon tea will served at the Tatha Bar & Kitchen between 12pm – 4pm daily. Reservations are essential and should be made online here.

I was intrigued by the afternoon tea with both Scottish and Japanese flavours and most impressed with what I’d chosen. Special mentions for the cow pie (cutest item), miso caramel blondie (most interesting fusion) and strawberry, pistachio and rose biscuit (prettiest) - but unsurprisingly considering the venue, the Dundee cake tasted by far the best 😋 I also loved the view on to the waterfront and Discovery. Thank you to the staff for such friendly and welcoming service 😍

Have been for breakfast, lunch and dinner (not on the same day 😁) and each time has brought a different but equally lovely experience. Peaceful in the morning, buzzy at lunch and atmospheric in the evening. Staff are lovely and menu is varied. Please bring back the Danish at breakfast they are to die for.

Covid rules were adhered to very well. Our afternoon tea was absolutely delicious). Although slightly slow (no doubt due to different rules), the service was still very good and staff were just lovely. Looking forward to my return.

Experience was lovely although inevitably quieter than usual. Setting felt safe but still relaxed on this first day opening. Meal was delicious, reasonably priced and only disappointment was the onion bhaji which was under-cooked.

It’s only 3 stars for atmosphere because Covid restrictions mean the emptier space felt less ‘buzzy’, but otherwise, it was just *so* good to be out at a restaurant! We assume it’s a 70s-influenced menu to pair with the main exhibition? In any case, good food.

We had a lovely meal socially distance with our friends and will certainly come back. Thought it a bit odd when we asked for the bill and when it came gave our membership card and were told it was too late it should have been given at the time of asking. Surely if that is the case the staff should have asked if we had a membership card at the time of us asking for the bill.

Sadly I don’t feel our special Mary Quant Afternoon Tea was as good as it should have been , especially for £25 head. It looked lovely but the scones and savouries, with the exception of the sausage roll , which was delicious, tasted as though they had been made very well in advance and an afternoon tea requires the freshest of components , not something which tasted as though it might have been made the day before. The salted caramel slice was tongue- curlingly salty . So disappointing . I would hesitate to book anything similar in the future .
