We visited as an adult family party of five, the menu was comprehensive including an extensive specials board and we all chose different items. All were prepared and presented to a high standard. I chose sole with mango chutney and banana mainly because I'd never...seen it on a menu and the combination was brilliant! Desserts lived up to the standard of mains and my poached rhubarb with orange curd and vanilla yogurt was divine. For the standard of food prices were exceptionally reasonable and the ambiance in the old church is tremendous. Completely recommend and as a local will be returning. Thank you Willie and team!More

This is our second visit to Blairgowrie and out 3rd visit to Littles. If you enjoy fish the is THE place. We started with the squidd rings and olives appetiser, then He had whitebait -loads of them and delicious - I chose 2 cod dishes...from the tapas menu which were superb, light and crisp and very good indeed, we both had turbot to follow - served on a bed of parsnip puree it was a match made in heaven, also served with leeks and a confit potato. We were quite wicked and He had a pudding and i had the cheeseboard, he wouldn't let me taste his pudding and I can't remember what it was but the cheeses were an excellent selection with home made oatcakes and chutney plus some apple slices and grapes. I had a very tasty Pinot Grigio, and He [the driver] had a couple of alcohol free beers. The whole meal was beautifully cooked, the service was excellent, and I have no doubt that we'll be back on our next visit to Blairgowrie.More

Initially very surprised on entering the restaurant as the lights were so bright that it ruined any chance of a lovely atmosphere in what is a beautiful building. After being seated we waited for almost 20 minutes before the waiter came to take our drinks...order. I told him we were ready to order food and he said he would have to go and check with the chef. I’m not sure what he had to check or why he had to check before we ordered as it was very quiet. He disappeared and a waitress turned up shortly afterwards and took our order. Our starters appeared promptly. My squid was covered in what can only be described as flour and water paste that was fried. It was very bland. My girlfriend had the scallops which were good. The mains were not great. My crispy halibut was tiny and the chips were truly terrible. Think soggy palid school dinner chips. The side dish of chard was lovely but overall the meal was poor. My girlfriend’s cod curry with rice looked like a plate of dog sick and had a massive bone in it which was unexpected and she wouldn’t have chosen it if she had known it was served like this. I ended up swapping with her. It tasted ok but looked grim. The service was terrible with the exception of the guy that brought the drinks who was very efficient. But he wasn’t taking the drink orders so we were sat drinking water for half the time. It’s such a shame because it could be really good. Sort out the lighting. Lose the awful pink walls and develop some cohesion with the waiting staff. They were all friendly but not very good at selling food and drinks. On the plus side the fish was all fresh and it’s very reasonably priced.More

Creative, subtle, perfectly cooked and exquisitely presented fish and seafood meal plus the best dessert in Scotland : warm chocolate brownie with salted caramel sauce and vanilla icecream. Very attentive and helpful service in a tastefully converted church.

Great restaurant in converted church. Great menu . Mainly fish but steak or schnitzel on menu. Lovely staff. Nice atmosphere with a fire in the bar where we ate.

We hadn't read any reviews or had any recommendations for this restaurant. We picked it because it was close to where we were staying. So glad we did. The service was friendly and efficient. We took our time and asked that there would be a...good period of time between courses. This request was fully met. We had a selection of Tapas dishes before we ordered the starter. They were amazing; as was the rest of the meal. We will be back.More

It is a friendly family run restaurant so I guess they probably will do children's portions. Best call them and ask.
