Couple of 4 going for dinner. Service was ok - however I think they could up their game. Food alright nothing to shout about, and the wine prices ridiculously high. Would we go back? Unlikely.
Focus largely on seafood although there are pizzas and meat dishes too. Set in a converted church it’s popular with locals and visitors. Friendly staff and service. Food was excellent, we all enjoyed our dishes which included fish&chips, seafood linguini, sole fillets and tuna. All good.
Food was excellent, the staff were very courteous and the menu was varied,
however if you are looking for service with a timeframe then this is not the place to visit, the speed of service lets the experience down which is a shame.
We dined at Littles last night, the restaurant was full. The surroundings are magnificent, the quality of the food is excellent, the staff are friendly but not plentiful. We felt sorry for the young girls running from table to table, trying their best to keep up with orders. We don’t mind waiting a little when a restaurant is busy but to wait for over 45 minutes for a dessert menu is unacceptable in a restaurant of this stature.
I had heard about this hidden gem, but never had the excuse to visit. Given the chance we arrived on a sunday unannounced, but were very welcome and well attended.. Thje spacious conversion has very good facilities and clever décor, preserving the important stained glass. This chef is renowned for his fish dishes but caters very nicely for other requests. We were overwhelmed with delicious dishes, some finishing with creative embellishments from the pastry chef. All at a very sensible price.
Premises are old church tastefully decorated and spotless inside. A bit on the cold side for us, July in Scotland can still be cold, high ceilings mean expensive to heat.
Staff are friendly, smartly dressed, helpful and attentive.
Food is exquisite, thoughtfully constructed, tasted just perfect, as you would expect from a fish shop owner selection is first class, persuaded ourself to try something different and was not disappointed, fish was full of flavour and beautifully presented.
Cannot comment on steaks, they are available but why go here if you are not a fish fan. We had sampler starter, delicious. Skate wings were excellent too.
Decent wine list, something for all tastes at reasonable prices for the quality. this standard of food deserves a good bottle of wine!
Easy parking, but we lunched on a Thursday probably very busy in evenings and weekend.
Nice food served in this establishment
Lacked atmosphere as premises were very quiet on our visit of 8 persons
Due to all dishes being individually prepared, menu is quite restricted in variety
Quality of food was good however quantity would leave a hungry diner looking for more
Tuna was very undercooked as seems to be the fashion of modern chefs
4 scallops in a main course would be more appropriate quantity wise as a starter
Overall quite enjoyable but wine expensive and what is on the menu results in an expensive bill.
Think there are better restaurants offering far better value for money in the vicinity
I booked dinner at Littles restaurant as a surprise for my wife's B/Day, Whilst on holiday in Scotland Food delicious service very good. This being a fish restaurant the fish was superb with some unusual fish dishes I had Megrim grilled with Almonds my wife had Sea Bass, both were great. We both had sticky Toffee pudding Very very good
While the exterior invites you into something special, the interior was extremely plain and rather blase.
We heard worldwide travelers come to Blairgowrie to dine at this restaurant but after experiencing it, we don't understand why. Service was so-so perhaps because one server also seemed to be the cashier and hostess, and the other was not attentive or pleasant at all. While nicely presented, the actual food was nothing special. My wife had scallops, correction "scallop" and monkfish. I ended up with a decent pizza but....pizza in a fish house? That should say enough.
If we stayed more than one night in this town we certainly would have dined elsewhere on night #2. Not worth the money for the food or dining ambience. Best part was conversing with other customers.
Great choice of dishes, the food was great and the service impeccable. Highly recommend going there if you're in the area.
Excellent fixed-menu 2 couse dinner with 125m glass of wine with home-made bread, served in a beautiful former Methodist church with memorial window, not to be confused with a stained-glass church window.
Four, not five, stars because it was a long wait before I was served even a jug of water, despite watching 3 other tables - couples or more- being promptly served.
Ate with a group of 10 and 9 had fish dishes where the fish was outstandingly fresh and well prepared. The vegetarian member of the party had a cheese soufflé which lacked a bit of flavour and a pizza. Perhaps not the most creative of...More
We are a group of friends in Blairgowrie for a week's walking. Our first evening out together was at Little's and we were certainly not disappointed. I have enjoyed Fish Restaurants in many parts of the world and this was as good if not better...More
We dined here based on other recommendations but found the food just so-so. Very slow service, seemed short on staff, our empty dishes sat for way too long before being cleared or offered dessert and then the cheque brusquely slapped down on the table without...More
Back for my annual visit to Blair. A meal at Little's is always an essential part. I have been coming since the early days in the old "wee" restaurant but I think this year's was the best yet. The Halibut off the special board melted...More
We visited last night 03 Jun 2019 and were met with so many choices of fish dishes. We made our choices after some assistance from the staff who provided us with all the information to make our choices. The starters came out and were superb,...More

My third time at Littles and third mediocre dinner. The red snapper and thin fries were tasteless and that is the first time I've had a cheesecake served in a martini glass, the consistency of which was like half whipped Angel Delight. Awful. A fantastic...More
what a lovely restaurant, an old church converted and with expert cuisine a number 1 for any visitors but ensure yu pre-book
Great service. Lovely venue. However, the food was average and overpriced. Had battered octopus which was meagre. Came with chips which were mediocre and frugal. No salad just a couple of lettuce leaves. Paid far too much money for this average meal. I had heard...More
2nd time here. Nice fish dishes, and I appreciate delicate presentation.... but.... fish portions have been trimmed just below what I think is fair. - on balance my “main” fish was “starter” portion. Tasty but too small, and this does impact the cooking of the...More

Great fish restaurant. I had a piece of haddock served accidentally with my battered halibut. No problem it was all delicious. Highly recommended.

Really great. Quality of food matched by friendliness of the staff. I had been at The Boathouse over in Gigha the previous weekend and it matched that. Also the restaurant handled the meal following the funeral of a neighbour of mine the previous week and...More

We took the grandchildren for some food and they where disappointed as was me and my wife. First the bad points, poor menu, (small portions) and I mean small. The smallest portion of chips I have ever seen. My granddaughter got chicken gougons and chips,...More

Tonight we were disappointed by our meals at Littles, with everything tasting just a little bland. The Tuna special starter was cooked all the way through and not cooked more on the rare side like one would expect but was topped with a beautifully cooked...More
Ladies Who Lunch were joined by my wife and sister in Willie Little's latest incarnation of The Great Seafood & Fish House, Restaurant-Style, in Blairgowrie. Both of the ladies from Kirriemuir had the most Ingenious Smoked Haddock Tartlet avec un "Parfait" Poached Egg and "Beautiful"...More

Found this restaurant by chance as we walked into the centre of Blairgowrie. It is a converted church. First visit a couple of drinks in the bar second a meal. Great service, great food. Closed on Mondays, during summer might be advisable to book.
Food was nice, very big emphasis on seafood/fish. Some dishes seemed a bit experimental (lemon sole with mango chutney and banana) but portions were large and lots to choose from. Building was very interesting too
Six of us visited here on Sunday for lunch. The restaurant is lovely and the perfect setting for a relaxed get together with friends. Staff are always welcoming and friendly. Willie (the owner) always makes himself available and takes time with his customers (a nice...More
