Comfort Food
Inspired by the wreck of the Scottish Prince that sunk just off the shores of the Gold Coast, the Scottish Prince offers a large selection of share plates, cheese and charcuterie. The kitchen is always open late, and in honour of the ill-fated barque, the restaurant's cargo includes the Gold Coast's largest selection of whisky!

Concept was good but the food was appalling; tough meat and cold food. Four of us dined there and all had a similar experience.
PS: it wasn't busy, the kitchen just got it wrong.

We had never been to the Scottish Prince prior to this visit, but we’ll go back. It felt just like a Scottish pub. The food we had (Arancini Balls and Fish & Chips) were excellent. Probably the best Arancini I’ve had before.

Alma and all the staff were friendly and outgoing. It was a wonderful experience.

The Scottish Prince is a local favourite of ours. The service is always great. A small menu, but lovely share plates &/or main meals, which we love.

Great place to have a drink and/or a meal. The TAPAS/Shared plates are great. We started with a Scottish Egg each followed by Salmon and a plate of Truffle Fries & Aioli. Naturally this was accompanied by a glass or tow of wine. Highly recommended.

My husband and I really enjoyed the whole dining experience. Such a quaint little gem right in the centre of palm beach, yet it feels like you’ve stumbled into Scotland through an alley door. 10/10 would recommend you try it!

Would definitely recommend- The shank just wasn’t quite falling off the bone. But it still had delicious flavour

Really really loved our time at The Scottish Prince, was a little nervous as we hadn't gone out in a while but we didn't have to leave our booth once, the staff were so attentive! Amazing vibe and awesome food, would love to come back.

This place is awesome. If you’re stopping by for a quick drink, or want to stay and test their knowledge on whiskey and roll home, or dine in enjoy their delicious menu - you are bound to have a great time. My favourite place in Palm Beach.

We had an impromptu date night on Wednesday and came here for dinner. What a fab English style pub. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. We ended up having a number of the smaller dishes so we could share. I want to go back and try more dishes. Keep up the great work!

The first impression was very cool, comfortable atmosphere. Good wine and cocktails, whiskey choice. Lots of variety with seating, stools, table, cosy corners. Food was disappointing, menu a bit all over the place.
Maybe return for a drink only as it offers late night hours.

The food selection that is on offer is truly worthy of your time to stop and dine in. They kitchen staff do an exceptional job and take your senses on a bit of a roller coaster ride of heavenly flavours. Add in the wide variety of Whisky's from around the world, one cannot be disappointed. All in all, my favourite Whisky bar in Australia.

First time here...loved the food and drink. Whisky and freshly squeezed apple juice was delicious! I will definitely be back once the coronavirus reactions are lifted. It's not the best atmosphere when they can hardly have any diners, but normally there is live music and I imagine it would be awesome when the place is pumping. Love the decor too 😊
