We first found Truffles the day before our wedding back in September 2012 and have been back every anniversary since and any time in between we can get to Dumfries. This is the most welcoming place with amazing food John and his staff are awesome and always make you feel welcome. We were there over the Easter holidays and a lady was complaining about her food and was making all sorts of accusations to the staff and as John was away that weekend may I say the staff were fantastic at handling the situation and I can only say after she left the rest of us in the restaurant had a ball. We all started talking to each other and saying how good our food was and had a wonderful evening. Will definitely be back again in September in not sooner if we get the chance.Fabulous and thanks

What a great find this restaurant was, just passing through Dumfries and wanted something tasty and ‘not’ pub grub. We found this restaurant through Trip Advisor and decided to trust the reviews. They didn’t do it justice, what a quirky, homely environment you walk into, attentive staff who make sure you are very well looked after and the food was absolutely gorgeous. I will have to go back as there were other things on the menu I would like to try, especially the duck starter. Thank you for telling me the secrets of your recipe but I am sure I cannot do it justice. Also if I haven’t already mentioned, the portion sizes are very generous, if you are passing definitely pop in. Thanks Truffles it was a memorable experience

Tapas as usual fresh and very tasty,great variety!
Main course could not be faulted,great taste and plenty of it .I had the recommended chicken dish which came with a lovely orange and truffle sauce and my husband had the rack of lamb which was cooked to perfection.I especially enjoyed the cheesy,leek mash and lovely fresh vegetables which came with our main course.
Lovely friendly atmosphere and free liquor at end of meal.
Would highly recommend.,thank you Joyce and John.
