I was at Howie's Bistro yesterday with a group from work for our Christmas lunch. Howie's was lovely and cosy due to the wood burning stoves, the staff were all very friendly and helpful and most importantly the food was delicious. We ate from the Christmas menu from which I opted for the traditional soup followed by turkey dinner. The... More

Visited Howies Bistro for a meal with friends in November. The food was excellent. The fish cake starter was delicious. The burger I had for my main was one of the best I've had and those fries, mmmmm! Don't normally go for a sweet, however as the first two courses were so good I decided to indulge and I was... More

Visited for lunch recently after a trip to Perth Airport. Having visited in June and thoroughly enjoyed our food, we looked forward to another great lunch. Not disappointed! Food is lovely, as are the very attentive and chatty staff. Steak and Lia Fail Ale pie is to die for. Definitely return. We travel approx 50 miles to enjoy this eatery.... More

Having looked around Dunkeld we decided on Howie's for a bite to eat, tempted in by the veggie breakfast on the menu in the window. Turned out none of us went for the veggie breakfast given the other nice choices on the lunch menu. What struck me most about Howie's was the friendliness of the staff. Both the waitress and...

We have been expecting this review since you told my colleague that you would be writing it. I'm so sorry you didn't enjoy your soup and to hear of your past illness. You told me you didn't enjoy the soup. We sold about 30 portions of soup that day, all of the other diners said they enjoyed their soup. We... More

Had a meal here on Friday evening with my son. We both had the roast chicken. It was absolutely the best thing I have ever eaten!!!! Chicken was perfect and the stovies and bon bons were beautiful. Front of house staff were very attentive and friendly. Couldn't have asked for a better night. Thank you Howies!

Took friends for special birthday treat. Food very average and arrived on cold plates, not acceptable in this day and age. Steaks were not worth the money and fish cake starter cold. Not our best meal

Thankyou for your feedback, we welcome all, good and bad. This is actually our first experience of someone not enjoying their meal since taking over the business in July, we were quite saddened to read this review. Especially since none of our staff had highlighted your complaint. Did you raise these concerns at the time? It is most unusual that... More

Stopped in for coffees and buns. Huge cheese scone. Good coffee. Staff advise new owners about to start new menu. Hoping for greater choice in vegetarian options. They've already started with more gluten free cakes.

I'm so pleased you enjoyed your coffees and scones. We certainly are making changes, only for the better. We have a much wider selection of cakes, and added gluten free options which our customers are raving about! We did a butternut squash risotto special last week, our specials over the past month have included Sea Bass, Cod and Pheasant so... More

Lunch-time menu is a little limited, but the food is good, with big portions and tasty food. Service is pleasant and casual with generally a good atmosphere. The restaurant itself and toilets are also very clean.
