“Lovely evening, delicious food”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Have just returned home after a most lovely evening at the Vine Leaf. We were a family group of 7, including 3 children. I can't think of any other restaurant we've been to that has delighted all of us.
Really good, varied menu (including the children's menu - best I've come across). Very warm, friendly (but not overbearing) staff. Relaxed atmosphere.
The food was beautifully cooked and absolutely delicious. Proper lovely! I can't remember the last meal out I enjoyed so much.
St Andrews is very lucky to have the Vine Leaf. We live in a much, much bigger town which has nowhere that gets it as right as the Vine Leaf does. Fantastic!

The Vine Leaf has been a popular restaurant in St. Andrews for many years and just gets better. Wide ranging menu and great food. Atmosphere and service are great.

Unusual menu but thoroughly enjoyed by our family. Celebrated a big birthday. Staff made it really special with extra touches. Food was excellent. No faults. Made the children very welcome.

“A Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

Having read some great reviews of this restaurant we went there expecting 1st class food and service......and we weren't disappointed. From the starters to the desserts, the variety and quality of the menu was superb. Whether vegetarian, meat-lover or seafood aficionado there were lots of dishes to please every palate. The service was excellent and Ian proved to be a friendly and attentive host without intruding on our dining experience. We will most definitely be back very soon!
p.s. The port pipes are a wonderful way to finish off a fantastic meal!

First visit and wasn't, disappointed food excellent. Although felt service could have been better, we were a couple but a table of 6 came in after us but were really given priority at all times.
