Scotland’s ‘City of Discovery’ is just waiting to be tasted – but where better to start a sample of Dundee restaurants than Dundee’s Apex City Quay Hotel & Spa.
Sitting on the picturesque Firth of Tay estuary in eastern Scotland, Dundee with its flourishing foodie scene in one of the country’s most exciting cities, and Apex City Quay’s Metro Bar and Brasserie is at the heart of the melting pot.
It’s a truly cosmopolitan dining experience, with dishes that pay homage to Scotland’s rich culinary tradition while drawing inspiration from around the world. When it comes to Dundee restaurants, city centre dining doesn’t come better than here, and there’s something to suit all tastes and appetites.
The hungry visitors to this Dundee restaurant in the city centre could lunch on a gourmet pastrami sandwich or tuck into an avocado, chilli and fried egg beef burger for supper from our All Day Dining menu, serving from 12:00 - 22:00 seven days a week.
Afternoon Tea is a really special event – with delicious savoury treats, scones warm from the oven, and decadent cakes such as tipsy laird and cappuccino chocolate cake. Available 13:30 -16:30 daily.
Dinner offers an extravaganza for the taste buds. Atlantic sole or specially selected 22oz rib chop, anyone?
The A La Carté menu also has an international dimension; there's Moroccan lamb kofta or garlic prawns with saffron orzo, nduga and piquillo peppers. The vegan menu includes a sensational artichoke risotto with parsley dressing, affila cress and pumpkin seeds. The gluten free menu takes the worry out of ordering and includes succulent battered fish and chips.
There is also a popular set menu designed to fit your budget, with two courses for £18.95 or three for £22.95. And the kids’ menu offers family favourites that are the envy of many Dundee restaurants, city centre or elsewhere.
Don't forget to have a look at the dessert menu, in case you can find space for the scrumptious treats such as the classic sticky toffee pudding or the duo of Dundee cake and whisky cheesecake!
A la carté and set menu dining is available 17:00 - 22:00 daily.
Even if you’re not looking for a meal, the Metro Bar and Brasserie, a refined Dundee restaurant, is the ideal place to stop for a relaxing beverage – whether that’s a speciality tea or coffee or something more grown up.
With a varied wine menu, Champagne and prosecco, draft and bottled beers, a wide range of spirits and a full stock of mixers and soft drinks, it has something for every taste.
And remember, if you’re too late to dine in – or just too relaxed to leave your room – there’s 24-hour room service for guests.
