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.

Food was absolutely divine. Starter, main course and dessert for both my husband and were faultless, delicious and worth every penny. Second time there and we will definitely be back. The service was wonderful and we were made to feel very welcome.

We visited just before Christmas. It's a lovely welcoming place with great staff. The food is wonderful. Really high quality. I had the daube of beef and it was the best I've ever tasted. I love the cheesecake here too as it isn't sugary sweet....You can taste the delicious cream cheese. We are so lucky to have this beautiful restaurant in CuparMore

Cosy, unpretentious eatery with positively the BEST food I have eaten in some time. Chose from the festive menu and noted there were no condiments on the table. A good sign as the chef obviously seasons the food. Pheasant, truffle and Pancetta Terrine starter. Beautiful...to look at and wonderful to eat. Main course Jaegerschnitzel, escalope of pork fillet covered in wild mushroom, bacon and cream sauce, with fried potatoes and veg. This was outstanding, sauce full of flavour and plenty of it over the lovely flavoursome pork. The veg PERFECTLY cooked and the broccoli and sugar snap peas bright verdant green, full marks. The fried potatoes best I have ever had and wonderfully seasoned. Dessert just couldn't pass the Sticky Toffe pudding with vanilla ice-cream. Dark, fairy-light pudding marooned in a lake of decedant rich dark toffee sauce accompanied by good quality creamy vanilla ice cream. Wow what a dessert! Wow what a stunning meal, accompanied by a hard working and still charming waitress. Proprietor also so pleasant and her husband the chef spoke through his fabulous food. Must not forget the crackers too! I NEVER have 3 courses, but the food here is superb, cannot express my delight enough for the entire experience. Cupar you have a sparkling gem of a restaurant here and I am deeply regretful that I live about 140 miles away. Thank you.More

Without doubt The Courtyard is our favourite restaurant. Delicious food, a great atmosphere and wonderful service. Lynn and Hermann are fantastic hosts. We've visited on a number of occasions over the years just ourselves, with family and with friends. Always a lovely experience. Also excellent...for our recent private event/evening. We'd thoroughly recommend taking time to visit The Courtyard for lunch or dinner whenever you get the chance!More

Fantastic place. Lovely atmosphere and exceptional service. Meals are made with passion to the point you can taste it. Portions are nice size and quite generous. The place is tiny but really cosy.

Our first visit here; we will be back! Lovely ambience, excellent welcome and service. Very good food. Husband really enjoyed his Venison Lasagne and Creme Brulee. I had very good King Prawns with Salmon and Mango cheesecake. With 1 soft drink bill was under £50.00.

We were sitting in the house in Edinburgh and fancied going out for a meal but, as it’s Festival time, we didn’t fancy going into the madness of Central Edinburgh at this time. We checked on Tripadvisor and, for some reason, picked The Courtyard in...Cupar (about an hour’s drive away). My goodness, it was worth the effort. What a great little place and, were it not for Tripadvisor, we would never have known the place even existed. The waitresses were lovely, the food was fantastic and the prices were very reasonable. We both had the pan fried venison medallions with a rich wine sauce, vegetables and chive mash. For sweets, my wife had the hot raspberries cooked in red wine with ice cream and I had the sliced apple fried in crispy batter dusted with cinnamon sugar and ice cream. We both loved the main course but the sweets were incredible. We’d never seen either sweet on offer in any restaurant before (which is why we opted for them in the first place). Add in a couple of large glasses of wine and two delicious coffees, the whole bill was £78.50. Given the standard of the cuisine and the attentiveness of the staff, we felt we had the bargain of the year. I can’t recommend this little gem highly enough and we will certainly be back sooner rather than later. Brilliant.More

It's easy to see why this local restaurant gets its 5 star reviews from almost everyone who has a meal there. The fact that it is getting harder to get a table is also testimony to the consistent quality food and lovely atmosphere. Even when...the staff are super busy they manage to keep calm, cheerful and attentive. We had salad starters, two of the day's specials (lamb shank and baked hake) and one of us managed a dessert. Just lovely throughout. So many restaurants now have the standard 'fish and chips, burger, steak pie and mac & cheese' menu - we are so fortunate in Cupar to have a restaurant that serves delicious, 'home cooked but special' food with real vegetables.More
