Craig Millar@16 West End
Light and airy fine dining with views of the sea in the heart of St Monan's.
This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.
This light and airy spot near the harbour in St Monans has fantastic views through the big windows over the sea to the Bass Rock – it’s even better when the weather is good enough to sit outside on the terrace. Dundee-born chef Craig Millar has an impressive back story of awards and accolades, and 16 West End has held two AA rosettes for 12 years. Local seafood is his particular interest, while hearty dishes of hare, venison and flat iron steak with truffle sauce will please those looking for more robust flavours. Lunch and dinner are fixed price affairs, while the tasting menu offers five courses, with accompanying wines if you wish.
This classy restaurant also has a pre-dinner drinks lounge and, when weather permits, a terrace with fantastic sea views over St Monans harbour. The same view can be enjoyed from the comfort of a well-lit yet intimate dining area where large windows create a conservatory-type atmosphere. Head chef and owner Craig Millar particularly loves to cook shellfish, which sits alongside creatively presented Scottish meat in a fine-dining experience covering tasting menus and lunch and dinner a la carte.
