“Their £7.50 lunch is a bargain!”
Reviewed 27 March 2013

This is my 2nd visit to Let's Eat and it won't be my last! We ate off the £7.50 lunch menu and we all enjoyed our meals, we all had difficulty choosing as everything sounded wonderful...The restaurant & staff were warm and welcoming on a particularly nasty March day.
It was a particularly busy day but the service was excellent, polite and friendly. All in all no complaints and I must give special mention to their toilets - clean and warm - all too often restaurants neglect this facility so to me it's a sign of a well managed establishment!

“Kitchen let down by service”
Reviewed 24 March 2013 via mobile

At £55/head for a table of ten locals (i.e. potential regulars) I expect better, and they shod deliver better. The restaurant has clearly made a conscious decision to employ the youngest (i.e. cheapest) waiting staff they can. Pre-dinner drinks orders repeated x3 but still had to get up and grab staff to actually deliver. Food good but unsmiling, grudging service detracted. Friend with a starter of pate asked for some bread/roll/toast to accompany it - male youth asked why - returned >5 mins later manifestly pissed off with soft rolls. All other interactions at the table were similarly dispiriting. What joviality there was in the room was conjured up by the customers, many of whom knew one another (small town, nice people). It would be easy for even vaguely mature and savvy waiting staff to capitalise on this natural bonhomie but not this crowd.

Please step it up. The kitchen is fine. We'd love to love you but you make it hard.

“Food Quality Excellent, Service Poor”
Reviewed 24 March 2013

We have went to this retaurant on numerous occasions. The food has maintained its high standards with the menu changing several times dring the year. This is by far the best restaurant in perth for the quality of the food.

Unfortunately the Sevice is now letting this establisment dow.

After we received our main course the time taken to ask from staff us about our final course was inadequate, and we had to prompt the staff. This lead to us just ordering puddings and missing out coffees and liqueous as we did not want to wait any longer.

Watch out for the redemtion of the £20 voucher book that you may have purchase for various establishments in the Perth area. The card states up to 20% per visit, valid twice on Saturday night. We produced two of the vouchers and this was deducted from the bill we were paying which is what we expected.There were three couples.

However, the Manager came back and said we were only entitled toone 20%.
