A lovely evening in Babas Bistro. It was Hogmanay and the restaurant was very busy but the food and service was excellent. There was a really good choice of dishes and the food was tasty and well presented. Fizz and canapés were a nice touch.

The location is good to watch the world go by. The food was lovely, especially the desserts. Our kids can be fussy with vanilla ice cream in different restaurants but when the waiter brought over the choice of toppings for it their eyes lit up and they both finished in super quick time, wanting more! The staff were so friendly especially to our children and we'll definitely be back.

Excellent food, excellent service, we ate early as we had our Grandchildren with us, the children's menu has obviously been put together by Parents who know exactly what children really want to eat, their children's dessert are a lovely surprise too. In short a fabulous restaurant , exactly what the town has been needing .

I visited the restaurant on Valentine and it was a nice experience, the food that I ate was lovely, the service was faultless and there was a lot of nice touches, like a glass of prosceco with cassis to finish the meal. I would certainly recommend it to friends.

The food in Babas Bistro was lovely and the service friendly and relaxed. Very recommended. Maybe a wee bit quicker with coffees and it would have been perfect.

As always enjoyed our meal here, relaxed light lunch with good friends. The set menu was not really to my taste this time which is a pity as it's such great value. We all thoroughly enjoyed our Turkish Delight - Lamb Kofte with delicious dip on flatbread - coffee is extremely good too.

Quick visit for lunch was very nice. Look forward to returning again. A few more lunch type dishes would be great. I'm not keen on fish and all specials with exception of a steak were fish. Lovely restaurant and will be back soon.

Best restaurant in Fife, well between this and the carnock inn but Baba's is closer and slightly cheaper and the service might be better. Top notch place and a must go to for anyone

Lovely food, well seasoned and presented and different from the other food offers in the area which was refreshing. Chose from the set menu which was very reasonably priced. Comfortable, city bistro feel in a small town.

Quiet early evening meal. Quick service. Really enjoyed prawn and rice balls with avocado dressing as starter. Fish pie tasty but somewhat dry. Other half enjoyed beef skirt marinated in treacle and Guinness for main. Both typical of innovative menu. Wines very reasonably priced.

Hi, pleasant atmosphere with good service. However, had the rabbit then burger and chips, disappointing. Rabbit far too chewy and burger dry and tasteless with dry bun? If it had been better the price would have been more acceptable as well. Probably won't return for an evening meal, sorry.

Sadly this was an unpleasant visit. Despite not charging for my wife's steak after 3 failed attempts at getting it right which was a decent gesture I still had to eat mine then watch my wife eat hers 45 minutes or so later. Good job it wasn't a birthday, oh yeah, it was. And it was ruined. Pointless going for a romantic birthday meal for two watching each other eat at different times.
