I brought my husband along for a surprise birthday dinner as he is a whiskey lover. As soon as we walked through the door I knew I had made the right choice! We felt like we had been transported to an old pub in Scotland, everything felt so authentic. The whiskey list was incredible and we’ve been talking about the food for days now. Loved every bit. Definitely a hidden gem.

The food, service and ambiance was amazing. I havn't enjoyed eating out like this for years. The chef's creations are current and inventive. Loved the live music. The Scottish Prince is a hidden gem for those who love the romance of culture and quality.

While the cost of the night sets you back a little bit it’s worth it. Fantastic cocktails that they will tailor make for your individual tastes. Very tasty dishes on offer and great ambiance. Save up your dollars and try it you won’t regret trying this little gem out.

While The Scottish Prince is reknowned up and down the Coast as the best Whisky Bar with live blues music most nights the food on offer is also delicious and reasonably priced. Not a large selection but there is something to cater for most tastes including vegetarian and vegan meals.

The bartender refused to fill up my glass only half full of ice when i asked. She argued that i should have a full glass of ice. I think i would prefer bartenders to agree with my preferences not steamroller me. Ice hurts my teeth because of the coldness factor. She was really bossy and would not listen to my reasons, just shouted out all her reasons why i should have a full glass of ice with my whiskey. I told her I didnt want to debate it. Then she said 'i get that question every night' then looked at me like i was a dumb idiot and proceeded to fill my glass up to the top with ice. It was full on! It made me not stay for another drink.

It is a lovely atmospheric little pub. They have decorated it so cute. The front of the room is more like a pub then they have a coat little area in the back for their restaurant. Really loved the vibe of the place. We had the 5 course $30pp meal deal. Which was great value we got to try a lot. The meals were good, the staff was friendly. I would definitely come back.

We really like the atmosphere, service, food, drinks and live music. However as there was three of us it would have been good to have 3 sardines not just two, we ordered them extra to the set tasting menu and were disappointed especially in comparison with the rest o& the menu.

Palm Beach has climbed back to match Burleigh and Miami for cool smart new venues to meet, eat, sip and sing along..we gotta keep turning up to keep the small Scottish Prince going (better and more sustainable in the long run).

Dave and his team deliver every time!

An absolute fantastic place to go to enjoy quality drinks and food. If you want a little oasis and need to unwind, then I recommend The Scottish Prince.
You will be looked after by their great staff. Satisfied with their awesome food. Then taken away with their live music acts, great DJ's or the great blues and tunes played in house.

Take a few friends and try the Tasting Menu, you wont be disappointed.

10/10

My group and I really enjoyed the Scottish Prince, we had the Captains Table (a booth made out of old whisky barrels), ordered the set menu and a few very tasty cocktails and drams of whisky. We will certainly be going back soon.
