Howie's has a good atmosphere with friendly staff and efficient service. Four of us had a really good lunch prepared by staff who obviously know how to put together the best of ingredients to achieve excellent meals. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area or make a trip if you're not!

Stopped in for lunch and had an excellent pair of burgers (steak and portobello mushroom) in this stylish and comfortable bistro. Would definitely go back if I were nearby. Make sure you get some of their fresh doughnuts!

Maybe unfairly I wasn't expecting the quality of restaurants to be up to much in Dunkeld but this place was excellent both for adults and kids alike. Friendly staff, nice surrounding and top quality food all round. Will definitely be back.

Met my uncle for supper and chose here! Had heard it was under new ownership and good reports... they weren't wrong! I had the sweet potato, pea & leek risotto and my uncle had fish and mash with spring veg instead of chips. Both servings were presented in a high standard and generous portions. We decided to have desert. Uncle... More

We were given a warm welcome in Howies as we stopped in this gem en route up north. Luckily we had booked ahead as it was busy on Sunday lunchtime. The food was fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. We were grateful for a kids' menu which kept the cost down as a family. This was our first visit but we... More

This small cafe/bistro sits in the middle of the village, stopped off for breakfast and had the local smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on gluten free bread and have to confess it's the best salmon I have tasted. Friendly staff and beautiful decor, definitely worth a visit
