The Waterfront Restaurant, 461 - 463 High Street, Kirkcaldy

Tucked away on the High Street opposite Kirkcaldy Harbour sits the Waterfront Restaurant, where you are guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome when you walk through the door.

With a unique menu in a lovely, cosy setting, the signs were all good for getting a great meal and having a lovely evening.

After a look over the menu, we made our decision on what to have, but before that, we were treated to lovely, fresh and homemade rolls prepared that day on the premises, and they were delicious.

When the starters arrived - mushroom soup for me and a trio of smoked salmon for my lovely companion - we weren’t disappointed.

The plates looked fantastic and the food tasted even better. The soup was creamy with chunks of a mushroom which I had never seen before.

Next up was the main course.

I went with the chicken with a pink peppercorn sauce while my fellow diner chose the pan fried venison loin.

Both dishes were accompanied by generous helpings of dauphinoise potatoes and a great selection of vegetables.

Then it was a much-needed rest before we thought about tackling the desserts.

I finally went with the vanilla ice cream with Italian meringue, which came with a lovely mix of fruit compote which really complemented each other well.

It was gingerbread pannacotta for my dining partner which looked really good.

Again, there was no faults with the desserts.

The vanilla ice cream was lovely and creamy with the perfect meringue - crunchy on the outside and really chewy in the middle - heaven.

All in all it was a very enjoyable evening with great food made all that more lovely thanks to friendly and approachable staff.

They took the time to have a friendly chat with you and made sure everything was OK with all the courses and really could not do enough for you.

If you are looking to head out for a nice meal any time soon in Kirkcaldy and fancy someehere different, then look no further than booking a table at the Waterfront Restaurant.

You won’t be disappointed if you do.
