Bar, Brasserie, Restaurant, European

Encore is the Dundee Rep Theatre's brasserie and café, where several renowned performers, including Richard Todd and David Tennant, began their careers. The theatre and restaurant are on Tay Square in the city's Cultural Quarter, close to Abertay University and The Howff, the city's ancient burial cemetery dating back five centuries. Encore is ideal for a pre-theatre meal, with last seatings at 6.45 p.m. on theatrical nights for performances that begin at 7.30 p.m. Encore, which opened in 1983, serves outstanding meals derived from local artisanal producers, including beef, Guinness, and oyster pie, pressed braised pig belly, and 21-day aged beef.

Bruach Bar and Restaurant

Bar, Restaurant, Contemporary, Pub Grub

In Dundee's Broughty Ferry neighbourhood, the Bruach Bar and Restaurant is located on Brook Street. The restaurant, which gets its name from the Gaelic word for Bruach Tatha, was founded in 2007 and is known for its lively atmosphere and creative drinks. Traditional Scottish ingredients and seasonal vegetables are combined with modern culinary techniques to create this cuisine. Classic cock-a-leekie soup, West Coast mussels in white wine and garlic, and Inverurie pig loin with dauphinoise and thyme jus are among the menu's offerings. The Tequila Mockingbird, made with tequila, fresh rhubarb, grenadine, lemon, and egg white, is one of the bar's signature drinks.

Castlehill Restaurant

Restaurant, British

Castlehill Restaurant has received rave reviews for the high quality of its food and its unique and creative décor. The restaurant is built on the site of a 13th-century castle, which was demolished to make way for a massive Apollo statue that served as a navigational aid for passing ships on the River Tay. Chef Adam Newth is a former Scottish Seafood Chef of the Year who worked at Edinburgh's Michelin-starred Number One. Hugh MacDiarmid and Robert Louis Stevenson quotes cover the walls, and the menu includes delicacies like confit duck terrine, ox cheek with turnip purée, and kale.

The View Restaurant

Restaurant, British

The View Restaurant is located on the southern bank of the River Tay, with spectacular views of the city of Dundee across the river. Steve and Karen Robertson manage the restaurant, specialising in modern Scottish cuisine produced with top-notch seasonal products from local artisanal suppliers. The restaurant's owners formerly managed the Glass House on Speyside, nominated for Best New Scottish Restaurant. Try the Angus beef fillets with asparagus spears and hollandaise sauce, and hand-cut chips. Or venison from the Cairngorms with local chanterelle mushrooms and dauphinoise potatoes. Or the chicken breast from Aberdeenshire with chickpeas and curry sauce... scrumptious!!
