“Great place!”

The Puffin Bistro & Wine Bar
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$11 - US$40
Cuisines: French, Seafood, Scottish, Wine Bar
Description: The Puffin is a relaxing, welcoming, family run restaurant/wine bar serving freshly made food using locally sourced produce and ingredients wherever possible. We are situated on the High Street in North Berwick, a mere stone’s throw from the beach and only seven minutes walk from the station. Whilst there is something to satisfy all palates, we are particularly renowned for our fresh seafood which is delivered daily. The restaurant is deceptively large and with our three distinct but inter-linked seating areas, we can cater for parties of any size. This includes a private dining area that comfortably seats up to 24 for special occasions. As well as an extensive wine list, we have a range of draught and bottled beers and spirits as well as a number of gins and rare whiskies which are not readily available in the UK. Our cocktails are particularly popular too! We look forward to welcoming you.

A really great meal with helpful friendly staff. Everyone buzzing to be back in a restaurant setting and with the fare the chef delivered its clear he was too. A very fine Cullen Skink to start followed by a seafood platter to share. It showcases everything good about Scotland. I’ll be back when I’m in the area.

We popped in for food after a day wandering the beaches. Lovely, friendly staff, great service and delicious and fresh food, very reasonably priced. Couldn’t fault the place.

Well what can I say from start to finish The Puffin is superb! We were greeted by Terry and Liz who showed us to our table at the window. There were 5 of us in our party my elderly aunt and mother, cousin and sister. The set menu was fantastic £15.95 for 2 courses such good value and superb food. Fish and chips were melt in the mouth. We will for sure be back, my mother announced it was one of the best meals she has had! Thank you Liz and Terry for your great service and a huge thank you to your very talented chefs.
