V&A Dundee visitor guide: Where to eat

It’s going to super busy when the V&A finally opens to the public on September 15.

There will be the 3D Festival which kicks off the night before, headlined by Primal Scream, then a day filled with great things to see and do.

With everything going on and all the excitement, you’re bound to get hungry! That’s why we’ve thrown together a list of some of the places you can stop to relax and refuel.

Of course there will be the cafe inside the V&A itself, but if you fancy other options, there are plenty of cafes and restaurants in the city centre.


If you’re looking for good ‘ol traditional fish ‘n’ chips, then Tailend is a short walk from the V&A.

All of the fish dishes here are fresh and locally sourced to give you the best eating experience possible.

Their menu ranges from the classic dish to lots of other seafood delicacies.

Tahini is simple but delicious. The menu isn’t filled with a million options but there are still plenty for you not to get bored with it.

From grilled kebabs and falafel to great cold mezzes, you’ll be sure to find something to fill you up.
