Top in 2017

Here’s the list of the top places we’ve visited in 2017. All of these places scored 16.5/20 or better, marking them out as exceptional places to eat.

The Gannet
Home of highly accomplished cooking that provides an excellent showcase for outstanding local produce, The Gannet is comfortably the best place at which we’ve eaten in Glasgow, to date.

Just over the road from The Gannet, Alchemilla is a fine exponent of small plates dining. With Mediterranean flavours to the fore, backed up with a strong commitment to local sourcing, this is a very smart place indeed.

The Bach
A fantastic Dundee cafe bistro serving excellent coffee and food full of warmth and charm.

Machina Espresso
Some blinkin’ lovely salad goodness has been added to Machina’s already power-packed coffee offering to make their southside branch an absolute must-visit gem.

Number 16
A really settled, stylish and relaxing place to dine, full of quality and charm.

Twelve Triangles Kitchen Table
A lovely communal dining space with a power-packed menu of breakfast, brunch and light lunch dishes. An exceptional place for relaxed munching.

Black Pig & Oyster
An impressive new additional to Commercial Quay focussed on high quality Spanish dishes.

A fantastic reawakening for a place that had run its course, Katie’s is a gem of a local eatery.

Larder To Go
A magnificent Edinburgh spot for lunch served at the double. Delicious.

Building upon their cakey goodness, Lovecrumbs now offers a power-packed selection of all day savoury treats. An excellent place.

Ox & Finch
Sharing plates of locally driven goodness, Ox & Finch is a very reliable source for top quality grub.

A really accomplished and fresh take on the multi-course tasting menu, Seasons is guaranteed to offer dishes of quality and class.

Soul Sushi
Soul Sushi is a first-rate place for really good quality delivery and takeaway Japanese fare. Their Nicolson Street is an excellent step in their continuing culinary journey.

Wylam Brewery Tap
A delicious menu of light bites provides an excellent foil for the outstanding beer at the Wylam Brewery Tap in Newcastle. It’s a place to add to your list for a visit, soon.
