Came to Howies on Thursday with my family for my birthday. Service and food were both excellent! Craig and the staff went above and beyond and it was really appreciated

Good food, friendly staff. When we were in there was some live jazz in the back ground which added to the atmosphere. Pre theatre is good value.

Had pre Theatre dinner here last week. Good value at £15.95 for 2 courses. The black pudding and tempura courgette starter was very good. Main course of chicken of Chcken Supreme also very tasty. Staff were attentive and pleasant.

This was our first visit to Howie's bistro Perth, and won't be our last. We had a lovely lunch here. Is was quite busy but we noticed a number of the guests seemed to be regulars - a good sign. Lovely decor, relaxed atmosphere and the food was good. Staff went out their way to be friendly and helpful.

My wife and I went to Howies Bistro in Perth for my birthday lunch, a fact that they were not, until now, aware of. The menu choice was wide enough to make choice difficult but adding in the specials board made it even harder to choose which dishes to have. By that I mean there were several dishes from each...

I went here with friends on Friday night and had a wonderful meal. The vegetarian selection was particularly appealing to one of our party as it is difficult to find such an extensive vegetarian menu anywhere else in Perth, as there is at Howies. In fact, that is the reason we chose Howies in the first place. The rest of... More

I had cod on a sunblushed tomato risotto and my husband had haggis, tatties and neeps. Bread was also served along with the meal and our bill was just over £30 which included soft drinks. Would...

Booked this restaurant for 07.30pm as had heard good reports. Arrived on time and were welcomed warmly and seated promptly. Decided to just have a main course and as myself and friend could not decide between a Steak or a Chicken Burger we ordered one of each to split when served. Our wine arrived and as we had not seen... More

Visited last night - we had an excellent meal fro start to finish. The food was great - all beautifully presented and portioned (the leek and brie tart was particularly tasty) and the service was super - the staff were all welcoming, attentive, kind and very helpful... we want to say a big big thanks for making our meal there...
