    Them food was very good and the drinks were cheap.

  • (((** 19 January 2017 by Nick Williamson from Dunbar

    An otherwise good meal was let down by a shortage of waiting staff. The staff working (one greeter, one waitress, and one bartender) were themselves all very nice, polite, and helpful, but they were simply run ragged trying to cope with a busy restaurant. We frequently had to make real efforts to catch their attention, had to give orders when they came to clear dishes (i.e. at inappropriate times, because we weren't sure when we'd see them again), ordered less than we might have done (we took the bill with dessert, rather than waiting for coffee), etc.

    A shame, because the food was tasty, reasonably priced, and the venue nice enough.

    Sorry to say it was the worst dining experience we have ever had!

    We needed vegan and gluten free options and were delighted with the choices. Food and cocktails were excellent and well priced.
    We did not appreciate the automatic service charge. Pay your staff a decent wage. Put the price up if you must, this annoyed everyone.

    It was very busy. Nachos weren't up to scratch a bit soggy. Gambas & Calamari were good
    Sea bass was good but a bit cold. Burritos good
    Churros good
    Cocktails were good

    Fun place, lively, young staff and customers. Food good, though my steak overdone and dry.

  • (((** 29 October 2016 by Keith from Edinburgh

    Really friendly staff great starter main was new to the menu and was poor just didn't work well maybe needs some further experimentation.

  • (((** 17 October 2016 by Shirley Prentice from Edinburgh

    Lovely atmosphere busy with fabulous music. Tables were far enough apart to have an intimate dining experience. Unfortunately our waiter gave the impression he was harassed and disappeared at one point leaving all the tables he was serving for a lengthy period. The food was tasty but not show stopping (son is a talented chef so probably unrealistic standards).
