Taisteal is a family run, neighbourhood restaurant with a twist.
Meaning travel or journey, Taisteal presents dishes using the best local Scottish produce combined with ingredients & culinary techniques from around the world. Taisteal takes elements of fine dining and presents them in a relaxed environment.
Head Chef Gordon Craig, and his wife Lucy, developed the idea for Taisteal whilst travelling in China and have made it a reality with the help of a small but dedicated staff team.

Taisteal has been recognised for it’s individual style and has been included in the Michelin guide, aa guide and the good food guide.

Don’t go to Taisteal expecting sticky toffee pudding. It isn’t going to happen. The dessert selection isn’t tired or trad, it’s eclectic. 8/10

The food here is brilliant – brave, irreverent, fun and punchy.
— Gaby Soutar, The Scotsman
The result is refined yet gutsy; delicately presented but studded with contrasting textures and tastes
— The List Magazine
Speaking to Michelin-trained chef Gordon Craig about food is an experience and an education. Tasting what he produces is exciting and liberating. He defies convention and introduces diners to a exotic and uplifting new world
