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 2.30pm – 4.30pm daily. Reservations are essential and should be made online here.

After booking with a vegetarian stipulated there was only one veggie option on the menu, which had a vegan cheese. In this day and age with vegetarianism and vegans on the rise it would be prudent to have as pacific menu for these people. The floor manager was very helpful and worked out an option which catered for us. Only other criticism would be that it’s terribly cold and I know with the open plan aspect of the Resturant it’s nigh on impossible to heat that volume of the V&A. But it is cold and will only get colder as winter ensues.

Good service. Food mediocre. Salmon was under cooked. Ordered second bottle of wine to be told sold out. Would have appreciated been told when first ordered that there was only one bottle left.

We had a special birthday meal for two yesterday. The restaurant is lovely! Absolutely loved the views! The menu was good, we both had the salmon and the chef was happy to make it without cauliflower for me and offered me a good alternative. The service at the start was great, very friendly and attentive but I think half way through there was a shift change - not so attentive and we had to ask for the bill a few times, on the whole though a great experience!

Unfortunately was very unimpressed with our lunch. Had booked a table for two for myself and a friend who had never been to the V&A. Found the menu a bit strange and not very lunch oriented. We both ordered the "smoked chicken salad" as a main (£13) as was the only salad offering. Not at all what we had envisioned. The pickled veg was inedible --way too salty and what looked and tasted like a golf ball size chunks of very sweet and sticky granola seed bar atop the delicate undressed mound of rocket with a few very small cubes (looked like packaged pre diced) of chicken and a few dry mini balls of cheese with a drizzle of dressing, really didn't work. We both took a few bites and couldn't continue. The flavours and textures just clashed. Even the side of bread we ordered was clearly not super fresh and a bit dry and the cubes of sirracha butter were very cold and hard (not room temp and spreadable). We both agreed we didn't want to eat anymore of the salad and asked if we could have something else. To be fair the wait staff obliged without a fuss and brought us two "chicken wraps" which the table next to us was eating. These replacements arrived eventually and were ok if you like deep fried chunks of chicken with rocket and a drizzle of dressing in a pita wrap. Not very sophisticated and the side of chips were also not hot. Have had far better tasting and much cheaper chicken wraps at Nando's. So disappointing. Though the staff were polite, they could have been more attentive. We eventually realised in order to pay the bill we needed to go up to the bar. When we did so, the incident with sending back our original order was never mentioned or any apology made. I would have expected a manager to come out and make an effort to apologise at the very least. Sadly not a word was said. Suffice to say I will not be rushing back or recommending to anyone anytime soon. A shame as I am a V&A member and would have liked very much to support this local restaurant.

Cream tea consisted of 2 mini scones, pot of tea, cream and jam. For 2 cost £12:50. Not afternoon tea as suggested in invite to members and that included member’s discount. That is quite expensive really.

Lovely place to eat, great views of the Tay Bridge and the Discovery. Food good but not amazing (sadly). Maybe a bit over-priced?

I had the most delicious meal here of a very high standard. I loved the pottery dishes. The ice cream on apple custard with shortbread and honeycomb was a highlight.

Menu reads as novel, exciting and interesting but the selections we made were distinctly under seasoned and a little disappointing. The fish stew was very like canned tomato soup with a bit vegetable, two prawns and only a few bits of salmon and white fish. Adequate probably but certainly not a real fish stew. Maybe we just chose unluckily. Service was excellent, smiling attentive and immediate. Ambience is good, airy and pleasant. We will be back and hope for better luck
