    Superb breakfast , took advantage of the special offer of half price , husband had full breakfast and I had pancakes with maple syrup, bacon & walnuts and a smoothie . Delicious and lovely presentation . Only minor issue was that is was a wee bit chilly in the restaurant .

    Sun on table was overpowering and cold when main door opened spoiled things a bit. Food was beautifully presented but no hummus on our meze platter which until looking at menu after going home didn’t realise we should have had this and it would have made such a difference. No beef available which we most certainly would have ordered. Love Selkie Dundee so a wee bit disappointed.

    Lovely food (delicious leek and potato soup) and very pleasant servers. Only thing was that the February sun was blazing and I got a wee bit hot. Not much could have been done about that though, other than blinds perhaps being lowered, but I didn't see any blinds. Lovely place.

    Excellent food, room and location. Spoiled a little by some rather energetic pricing on some items. The main issue we had today was speed of service and waits between 'courses'. I get the casual tapas/small plates vibe but we did ask for bread/olives to be brought before the rest of the food, which took 30 minutes plus, and they weren't. They were then superfluous given the flatbread etc. in the other items. Later, simple desserts took 30 mins to appear. The servers were keen and very pleasant although not always entirely attentive. One took an order with a cup of (her own) coffee in hand. I think the delays are in the kitchen.

    We opted for the small plates, 7 between the two of us. Also had a selection of bread. That was plenty food for us. Difficult to choose the best dish from garlic prawns, cauliflower pakora, chorizo/black pudding, pastas bravas, meatballs. Very reasonable prices, excellent service and will definitely return

    Food was lovely but a bit overpriced for what it was. There was a good atmosphere as most tables were occupied. The service was a bit haphazard at times plus we hadn’t realised our voucher had to be spent in full so felt we were scrabbling round at the end of our meal to use it up. Overall it was a pleasant lunch

    After a meal at the Ferry Selkie with my wife a few weeks ago, we returned yesterday 14/01/24) with my folks. It was exactly the same as the first time we visited. Super quick service, fantastic food, perfect portion size. Will not be long before we return again.

    On the day we visited there was a lot of items on the already small menu unavailable, the only reason we stayed was that we would have been charged £5 a head if we left having booked through Open Table! I can understand this if people don’t turn up for a booking but I think it’s totally unreasonable when you arrive only to be told that approximately half of the menu is unavailable

    Arrived at 8.30 was told at 9.15 when we wanted to order more tapas that kitchen had been cleaned and no more could be ordered!! Big disappointment! So within arrival and 45 minutes that was the end of our meant to be relaxed evening! Food was tasty. Server was good and was not her fault about the kitchen. Will not be returning now to any of the 2 Selkies after this appalling experience. Felt like because it wasn’t busy chef decided to pack early for the night!
