    Met at the entrance to the restaurant by waitress and coats taken. Confirmed thst they had a reservation from bookatable for the chateauxb and wine for two. Wine ordered and delivered to table promptly.

    5 mins later informed that the chef had forgotten to order the joint of beef. So why advertise as a speciality?

    Offered another steak as alternative which we chose the ribeye medium done. Only for two burnt at sides and welldone inside steaks. I was assured that there was mac donalds fries within the bucket of salt delivered. The ready made in a bag peppercorn sauce was asda's finest range standard.

    Upon complaining the waitress co sulted the manager and i was offered the food free and my bill came to £21 for the wine..which was appreciated.

    The chef was having a very bad day in our experience.

    Our food waitress was very good but there were too many people involved in the service so it felt very impersonal and the manner of the wine waiter was rather off putting. The food and atmosphere were good and it is a lovely place but it was our 3rd visit and we probably won't return.

    Food was fine as was wine but there was a little confusion as to what was included in the package; bread poor and no offer of more; staff did thei best.

    A beautiful restaurant with a relaxing and laid-back atmosphere. However the service was appalling - we had booked a particular offer for a Chateaubriand to share between 2 but they had no more Chateaubriand. We then waited 1 hour for a cheaper and smaller cut of beef. The waitress didn't explain nor apologise for the delay. When the food arrived, the wrong sauce accompanied the steaks along with a tiny salad to share. Given the long wait, we thought the waitress would offer us coffees on the house or perhaps take the olives we had filled ourselves with off the bill. But no. We were really surprised to receive such poor service, especially when having made a reservation in advance with an offer that specified exactly what we would be having. There are many other great steak places in Edinburgh and in my view, they surpass the Hotel du Vin.

    Excellent value for an outstanding meal and dining experience. Very French bistro! I highly recommend the swuid meatballs to start, so flavoursome and tender. The portion sizes were perfect.
