SquareMeal Review of 63 Tay Street

Since taking the reins in 2007, chef/proprietor Graeme Pallister has gone from strength to strength at 63 Tay Street – a bright and airy space next to the pretty river Tay. Creating a destination restaurant while keeping the locals happy isn’t always an easy task, but Pallister has worked hard to realise his guiding principles of ‘local, honest, simple’ – and is doing the Scottish larder proud in the process. A reasonably priced set dinner menu (£37 for three courses) might offer up creamy Isle of Mull scallops in crisp, crunchy puff pastry, fillet of sea trout with Loch Nevis langoustine chasseur, perfectly cooked Aberdeen Angus steak (from the separate char-grill menu) and traditional desserts such as treacle tart or rhubarb crumble, all delivered with creative modern flair. The wine list is also first–rate – no wonder the place also attracts punters from further afield.

Wine List Of The Year Finalist

An extraordinary number of wines for such a small place (36 covers), including – impressively – 18 by the glass, and 37 half-bottles. The food-and-wine-matching grid remains a unique stroke of genius (albeit not a beautiful one), and some of the prices are terrific. £89 for 1995 Langoa-Barton, anyone?

This restaurant is chef owned ( since 2007) by a well know local chef called Graeme Pallister . I have eaten there on many occasions in the last 5 years and it has now become my regular dining spot in Perth.The food is fantastic and the service matches, they have just received an award at the Scottish restaurant awards for best customer service. I like my wine and there is a great choice with plenty of recommendations from Sylwester the restaurant manager. The best place to eat in Perth by a mile and I would also consider good value for money as it is a complete evening experience if you go for dinner.
