Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolutely delicious food, as always. Usually come for an evening meal but lunch was superb. Was catching up with friends and did not feel rushed to vacate our table. Well done, Collinson’s. Always recommend this restaurant to friends. Have never had a poor meal or...service here,More

We dined here initially for special occasions birthdays etc but the food and service is so good we dine here once a month for lunch and for special occasions we dine in the evening. We consider this restaurant the best in the area for food...and service. Consistently well cooked tasty food, beautifully presented and service is first class. Menu has a good choice between meat fish etc. cannot comment on vegetarian as we tend not to eat that. Look at specials board for occasional dishes, I think Steven uses this as a trial for new dishes. You will always get something to your liking. Wine list good choice but we stick to house wines as they are good value and a bottle between the two of us is too much. Have to stay awake for the lovely sweets. Bread and butter pudding never tasted this good at school. You must try the Scottish tablet with the coffee, not fudge, Scottish tablet, delicious. Recommend reserving table especially on Fridays and Saturdays, it does get busy and we regularly see all tables full. Ignore the local rag’s reviews they seem to omit Collinsons for their recommendations for some reasonMore

Have been quite a few times before but this time really disappointed with my choice of venison steak main. Didn't cut well and was extremely chewy. Would certainly not recommend.. Staff and ambiance however were of the reliable good standard.

Classic menu nothing exciting or unique. Good value for money. Ambience is unduly bright and service is extremely relaxed to the point of bordering on slow on a Wednesday dinner service. Would recommend for a satisfactory meal.

This is a very high end restaurant. The dining area is impressive & the atmosphere is very good. On a Friday night it was very busy. My starter of scallops with Stornoway black pudding was outstanding. My wife had a main of roe deer which...she still raves about. Not a cheap dining experience but memorable. I would like to return in the future.More

Formal, but not stuffy, with fixed price menus with 4/5 choices for each course - reasonable value. 3/4 empty on a Thursday evening mid-August, so subdued atmosphere. Excellent cooking, particularly nice venison. Good vegetables, though exactly the same for whichever main you chose. Staff attentive...& seemingly stressed, though not really enough for them to do.More

Reservation was simple and successful. We arrived 15 mns early but they were happy to take us. The champagne we had previously requested was in ice by our table. Staff were professional, attentive without being fussy, smooth and faultless. We were a family of 4...celebrating our daughter’s graduation. Between us we had pork belly, beef, chicken and roe deer which were all amazing. Portions were plentiful and delicious. Merlot and Pinot Noir wines served in mini individual carafes. Deserts were cheesecake, chocolate fondant and apricot tart. All very good. As requested, the chef wrote a personalised message in chocolate on my daughter’s desert plate which was a lovely touch. The manager called a taxi for us which came in a matter of minutes. We all had a fabulous dinner and experience and would highly recommend.More

Fabulous place for quality food and drink. I had the Pork belly with Stornoway black pudding, and the fillet of beef (medium-rare). all cooked to perfection. Friendly, attentive waiting staff without being over us all the time. Highly recommend this gem.

First visit to Broughty Ferry and this restaurant. Beautiful contemporary decor without being fussy. We opted for the 3 course lunch with one glass of white wine which was served in a mini carafe, nice touch. Husband driving so soft drink for him. All food...delicious, presented with care and thought and so flavoursome. Tweaks made for my dairy intolerance but it was not a bother and I enjoyed pavlova, seasonal berries and sorbet for dessert. Would definitely return and will recommend to friends.More

First class fare as always - standards remain high. Sensational seasonal starter of asparagus, with poached egg. Mains was the most tender roe deer (venison) - cooked to perfection. Partnered with a decent Chilean Pinot Noir. Food was faultless - Sevice, First class. Unfortunately some...of the clientele let things down - sucking one’s knife, is neither cool nor good manners (it’s actually disgusting). Turn your effing phone on silent, better still - leave it at home (if you are able). Some diners need a volume control. Otherwise, a memorable meal and highly recommended.More

Been here many times, the food is beautifully prepared and I never leave this restaurant disappointed. I like that I don’t feel overwhelmed with portion size too! It’s quality and always so tasty. The staff are so lovely and welcoming also. The wine options are...delightful and are served at the correct temperature in lovely glasses which always makes all the difference.More
