    Had dinner on Friday evening with my husband, grown up son and teenage daughter then returned again on Sunday for lunch with a friend. On both occasions the food was both beautiful to eat and to look at. The service is excellent and the surroundings are stunning sited as the restaurant is in the original Royal Scottish Academy of Music.
