A nice cozy place to catch up with a friend or go on date. Great feel and aesethically pleasing, this place has character which is a breathe of fresh air for the Gold Coast. A beyond excellent choice of whiskey.

I love this little hole in the wall, it is always an enjoyable evening. The food and service however sadly didnt live up to expectations on this particular visit.
Hopefully it was just an off night!

It's our best go-to for a local night out , especially in difficult Covid times. Easy to reserve, access or park, great simple food with impressive variety of drinks. The service is a tonic in this pressured year.

We dinned in on valentines evening for the first time and were delighted at the decor and selection of scotch behind the bar! We ordered 2 appetisers which were divine and a scotch fillet to share. It was cooked perfectly. The live music was sublime and overall, it was a perfect night. We will be back and we will recommend.

I love this place. A bit disappointed there were quite a few whisky options not available. Otherwise, can’t wait to come back and try the many other whiskies.

Once again the Scottish Prince simply outshines itself. I invited 3 friends to dinner and they loved every minute of it. Staff are always delightful, Thom behind the bar makes a tasty drink, order a Vieux Carre of menu and it will take you back to the prohibition era. A hidden gem.

This was a last minute booking for a place we had never been to.
It was a delightful surprise to find this whisky bar. The service was attentive as soon as we walked through the door. The food was lovely and fresh. We were given knowledgeable
guidance of the the whisky shelves By on of the owners and enjoyed our choices.
We will be going again. Feel as if this is our find and almost don’t want anyone else to know!

We were first in for the day and especially booked their to have the Jameson and apple drink, we were told they hadn’t bought any apples yet even though they had all day whilst they were closed to... we were really looking forward to it and probably wouldn’t go back knowing they might not have apples.

The updated menu for dinner is great. A range of different type of mains and shared plates to try. We started with the Garlic Sourdough Loaf, followed by Authentic Scotch Egg and finally Slow Roasted Pork Shoulder. All the plates were of high standard and we will return to try other dishes including Venison Spring Rolls, Tiger Prawns, Mushroom Gnocchi. The staff at the location and friendly, helpful and great people in general. Highly recommended. Peter and Mel.

The food and drinks were great.
The kitchen was not well organised as we received our starters and mains at the same time and had to accept them. One order was missed and when we asked about it, the order was placed and the meal arrived after we had all finished eating.
The food was great, the value was great and the drinks were enjoyed, so no complaints about the quality, just the timing needs some work.
We are booked to go back again with another group and I’m looking forward to it.
Happy to recommend the Scottish Prince.

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.
