Cannot recommend highly enough. We went in with a guide dog and had superb attentive service. Really caring staff, brought dog water. Great wine and drinks menu, superb antipasti platter and all service understated and effortless. Thank you so so much for a lovely evening....More

From the getting when we walked in, the amazing food, the relaxed atmosphere and outstanding service, a visit to Dundee always had to include the wine press

Love wine press, the staff are super knowledgeable but I just feel there is a total disconnect between their aesthtic and their values. The place is very French rustic/traditional but the staff look punk rock, and the music is a touch too loud and out...More
