Finding a good restaurant open on a Monday is always a challenge so were delighted that our friends booked The Playwright to meet up - a favourite of ours anyway. Despite the chefs having to cook in candlelight (but by gas, of course) because the electricity had decided to fail, the slightly delayed meal was excellent. Well done!

We are always looking for good places to eat in Dundee and decided to give The Playwright a try because of some decent reviews. I am thankful we had the pre-theatre menu because otherwise it would have been really overpriced. Of course you cannot make a judgement based on one visit but I doubt we will be back - not at the price. My cullen skink was bland, my wifes steak was far too salty....it was a surprise to see the restaurant so empty on a friday night - which kind of speaks volumes. We were over all disappointed and do not expect to return.

We had a table at 5.00 pm, (as we were going on to the theatre) on Easter Saturday and ate from the Pre-Theatre Menu. The choice of food was excellent, and price wise, very good value.
We both enjoyed the food; well presented, well cooked and delicious. The staff were pleasant and attentive, and the restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere. We would recommend a visit to The Playwright, and would definitely return on our next visit to Dundee.

This is probably the best and most competently cooked food in Dundee. Beautifully presented and consistent quality. Lovely combinations of ingredients and flavours are cooked classically. Starters and puddings stand out. Only criticism is food can be very rich and seasoning can be a little too much for my palate.
Service is professional and friendl. We have been to this restaurant many times for lunch and dinner and it never disappoints
