After hearing numerous glowing reviews about this place I decided to find out for myself what all the fuss was about. I went with my boyfriend on a Saturday night about 20:00, I don’t think we could have chosen a busier time as the place was mobbed – always a good sign. A piano player, nestled in the corner, gave the place a warm welcoming atmosphere and the room itself was bursting with personality.
The tables were very well presented; cutlery and glasses were gleaming and there were so many mouth-watering dishes on the menu it seemed impossible to choose between them. I’d recommend the Duck which my boyfriend chose – I never even liked Duck until I tried it here!
We were surprised to be served our starters by the owner, Guy Cowan, as he made his way around the restaurant chatting to his patrons. This dedication and attention to detail is rarely seen nowadays so it made us feel liked he really cared about his customers.
Guys is quite a small restaurant, it is an old shop conversion so it is very long and narrow which means the tables are quite close together. We didn’t mind this as we ended up chatting with the people at the table beside us about how delicious the food was!
If our meal wasn’t special enough, with our bill we were given a picture postcard of the restaurant by my favourite Scottish artist, Adrian McMurchie. Something I’ve kept which is a reminder of an amazing meal!
