The food was excellent, as ever - the tables for two are a little tight together but there's a great atmosphere so it's not really an issue.

    Lovely restaurant tucked away in a quiet corner. Brilliant food and drink and an intimate and splendid dining experience. Great for romantic dinners or convivial business meetings.

    It was a lovely dining experience. We loved the cozy French decor and the wait staff was absolutely charming. The food was also very good and the price to quality ratio excellent. If we return to Edinburgh we would dine there again.

    Excellent service, beautiful surroundings and exceptional quality. A real hidden gem.

    Food was good, without being really special for all of the party of 6, so it felt over priced for the eating experience. Lovely place. Staff while efficient didn't really 'engage'. Didn't feel unwelcome, but not over welcome either. Table of 6 cramped.

    Cafe St Honore is a wonderful restaurant that transports you to Paris in terms of food and atmosphere. We decided to go for the express lunch menu which was excellent. The standard of food was very high and it was extremely good value for money. The service was also top class and I am certain that I will return soon.

    We have been here many times...our 'go to' when we visit Edinburgh. Always great...this time, excellent and best yet. We both had halibut for main course. So tasty, we both regretted finishing it!
