Ate on a Friday night with friends, in a private room. The food was excellent, wine very good and service friendly and pleasant. Good menu with plenty of choice. Nice bread platter with dips, which I believe was complimentary. Would definitely recommend and would return if I was ever in St Andrews again.

Went for dinner here with my friend on a Saturday night. Place was busy but the service was excellent. The meal was delicious and neither of us were disappointed with our choices. We were too full for dessert sadly as the options sounded very good.

This was a big occasion for my wife and I and it was made very special by the wonderful food and the excellent service by the delightful host Ian. The strengths of the Vine Leaf are the relaxed comfortable ambience, the attention to detail of the hosts Morag and Ian and the extensive Menu with something to suit all diners.... More

We were so lucky to be taken here by our hosts. There was an excellent range of beautifully presented, delicious vegetarian dishes. We all loved it. The service was helpful, attentive but not intrusive. We'll be back!

If I was judging the restaurant on service, atmosphere and the main course (which in my case was lemon sole) I would be awarding 5/5, however unfortunately my sweet was a major disappointment. It was a lime cheesecake with coconut ice cream (which was lovely), but the cheesecake was stodgy and had a great big hard bit in the middle... More

We had an amazing evening at the vine leaf to celebrate birthdays. Ian was a wonderful host and morag's cooking was as delicious as ever. Excellent wine and tasty cocktails. Lovely atmosphere and so nice to know you have the table for the night. Cannot recommend this restaurant enough. Looking forward to our next visit.

Dined here on 15 Dec for about the fourth time. Difficult to find any fault with this establishment. Excellent staff, lovely surroundings and of course excellent food. We live in St. Andrews and place the Vine Leaf the No. 1 restaurant in town for us.

I've eaten here a number of times, and it has been amazing every time. Don't judge the restaurant by the extensive and nonsensical collection of cuisines and dishes on the menu. The menu makes no sense but somehow, The Vine Leaf still manages to do everything well. Bread and some dips and oils are brought to the table before your... More
