Attentive staff, lovely meal, good menu with good value for money, it was a warm night but the restaurant was well ventilated. Altogether, a really enjoyable evening for my Mum's 89th birthday.

Fabulous experience, wonderful food and the staff couldn't have been more helpful catering for my friends birthday. They even made a special dessert plate for her without asking which was a lovely touch. Super value too with a pre theatre set menu. Very impressed and will definitely be back very soon!

Good food and a friendly welcome. As we were visitors to Perth the Manager, Craig, went out of his way to give us directions. All in all, could not have done more for us. Thank-you.

My wife and I had an excellent meal. The staff were really friendly, and even though it was Hogmanay, we didn't have to wait a long time between courses. we had the lamb and the pork, both perfectly cooked, and the vegetables were really tasty, not overcooked. If I have to be picky, we had to wait quite a while at the end to catch a waitresses eye to ask for the bill. By no means did this ruin our evening, is not a complaint Thanks for a lovely meal.

We were welcomed very warmly, on arrival. The pleasant and efficient service was maintained throughout our meal. We had food from the two course menu, which had a very good choice of dishes. My wife and I chose different meals, which were all beautifully cooked and presented. along with what I felt was very good value for money, I would rate the experience very highly, as a first visit. We will certainly be returning, to this very pleasant restaurant.

Visited at lunchtime with my wife and 6 year old son. The quality of the food was very good and excellent value. The choice was also great with a number of daily specials available. We also appreciated the exceptional service that we experienced. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed Howie's Bistro and hope to return again soon!

Had a lovely Friday evening with some friends. We all ordered different meals and couldn't find fault with any of them. ( Not that we were looking to). Staff were very attentive without being intrusive. Pleasant and friendly. All in all a very pleasant visit.

Food, quality and service was fantastic, not a negative point to make about this restaurant. Also, 2 of our party have gluten free requirements and there was a section on the menu that catered for this, without any hassle. Would definitely recommend.

The food was fine but the fish cakes could be a little more moist and a lot fewer capers which were whole and a rather too heavy picked sharp element.
