My friend and I had a lovely lunch the food was excellent, great value for money. We had 2 courses for £9.99 I had the chicken, crushed roasted potatoes and veg in a thyme gravy, my friend had the hake with a tomato sauce and veg,we both had the lemon cheesecake it was divine! The helpings where so generous we where glad we had opted for the 2 courses only, as there is also the option for 3 courses plus a glass of wine for £16.99, glass of wine included.
The staff where pleasant and helpful. We will definately pay another visit to Cranstons restaurant.

Sorry to say that I wouldn't recommend the afternoon tea. The scones were brick hard and the choice of small cakes was not the best. The sandwich which you have to choose a filling from a short list was the best part of the afternoon tea, however, I wish they would give you the choice of more than two smallish sandwiches and less of the small cakes. £27 for two seemed to me expensive given the less than satisfactory quality of the afternoon tea.

Lovely restaurant,ideal location,great view over Princes Street, excellent menu, helpful and polite staff, good value. There is also a bar beside the restaurant with pairs of seats at the windows. Seemed like an ideal place for a break from an afternoon's shopping in Edinburgh. Quite a lot of stairs up to the restaurant so maybe not ideal for some. I didn't spot a lift but there might have been one. Overall this restaurant was exactly right for us.

Great dining experience pre-booked before a theatre show and the staff were more than helpful. Allowing us to enjoy the sweet in our room after the show.
