Serving the very best Scottish produce in an authentically Parisian bistro interior, the Café St Honore menu offers an eclectic, daily-changing selection. Delicately crafted mains incorporate subtle Scottish accents, like organic Scotch beef bourguignon and mash, whole grilled sardines, coq au vin made with organic Perthshire chickens, and local cheeses with home-made oatcakes and chutney. A tempting cafe classics menu is also served.

As well as crowd-pleasing blends, the wine list Café St Honore restaurant offers a host of bespoke blends for the wine enthusiast. For a graceful conclusion, tempting desserts are served alongside artisan coffee and dainty petit fours.

    What a gem. Between the service, food, drink and atmosphere we truly felt as though we'd escaped to a little corner of France in the heart of Scotland. A wonderful dining experience.
