WE were students at St Andrews when this restaurant first opened and so went beck for a our 30 (!) year reunion dinner. It was always a special place but going back to the refurbished Vine Leaf was lovely. It had lost none of its charm, we were made to feel really welcome and the food was better than we... More

Booked this restaurant as it it was high up on trip advisor and the menu looked different from the other restaurants. We weren't disappointed complimentary bread and dips. 3 courses for £30, we thought it might be small portion sizes but they weren't..... food was absolutely amazing and would definitely return again. Staff were friendly and a great atmosphere. Great... More

We were in St Andrews for a get together and had advanced booked a table for eight, no problem with making the booking, unlike other places that wanted deposits and to put restrictions on what menu you could order from. We were given the private dining room, which was good for the rest of the clientele as we were quite... More

Our B&B host had recommended this restaurant, so we booked in advance of our visit. The three course menu for £30 is excellent value, considering the quality of the food and presentation. My quail starter was particularly delicious and my partner raved about his game pie with rabbit loin. Service was quietly efficient. Perhaps lacking in atmosphere but then again,... More

We had dinner at the Vine Leaf with friends last Saturday. The menu has a wonderful choice of meat, fish and game. We all enjoyed a variety of dishes which were well cooked and presented. The dessert menu has a great choice also. The staff were all very friendly which added to a very pleasant evening.

A "hidden" restaurant which is entered from a doorway in South Street. There is no street frontage so can only be seen once inside the door and along a passageway to this secret restaurant. Once there the welcoming smile from friendly staff dispels any doubts you may have had. The service is excellent and the meal is probably St Andrews'... More
