Lovely place and great food as always, but central Edinburgh so parking is difficult.

  • ((((( 7 January 2017 by Annie Rhodes from Edinburgh

    As ever, the food, service and ambience were excellent, staff are efficient but relaxed. No intrusive music and staff were attentive to my request for a particular table to help with hearing and balance problems. Ox tongue was a treat and whilst I wouldn't usually like pickled as opposed to fresh beetroot, this was delicious. Choosing it was a sign of my confidence in CsH's cooking.

    This restaurant is a little hidden gem. The food was excellent, beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. The service was attentive and personal.
    We had a lovely evening. Thank you.
    Now that we have found it, we'll definitely be back.
