V&A Dundee

Tatha Restaurant

With spectacular views across the River Tay, Tatha Restaurant brings delicious family dining to Dundee's waterfront

Enjoy a delicious breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea at Tatha Restaurant during your pre-booked visit to V&A Dundee.

We’ve made a few changes to help keep you safe:

The restaurant has been redesigned to ensure physical distancing, and we’ve introduced a special grab-and-go takeaway system for those who would prefer to have their meal on the move.

We’ve also created a special Mary Quant-inspired afternoon tea in honour of the museum’s international retrospective on the iconic British designer.

All entry to the museum now requires a ticket, so if you are planning to pop in to Tatha Restaurant or have pre-booked your Afternoon Tea, you need to book a museum entry ticket in advance. This is so we can ensure a safe, smooth and enjoyable experience for you by managing the number of people within the building.

Our Suppliers

We are delighted to work with some fantastic local suppliers, including Dundee’s own 71 Brewing. Suppliers from across the region include Simon Howie, George Campbell & Sons, Graham’s Dairy and Jannetta’s Ice Cream. We also proudly serve Mackays Marmalade.

We’ve updated our menus to offer a wide range of options whether you take away or sit-in.

A range of tasty breakfast croissants, pastries and cream teas are available 10.00 – 11.30.

From 11.30 – 15.00, enjoy freshly made sandwiches, salads and soups in the restaurant or taken to go.
