    Excellent lunch and very attentive staff. One little niggle is that the chocolate brownie was a bit dry - a little cream would have helped.

  • ((((( 21 April 2017 by Andy Leonard from Evesham

    Immediately greeted warmly and this was the theme throughout our evening, just amazing customer service. Nothing too much trouble and everyone was professional but impressively friendly too. Pleasingly, the menu was not overloaded with choice but was extensive enough for anyone. Quality of food was sublime. The scallops were amazing, the steak and the lamb dishes were faultless and the sticky toffee soufflé was to die for. Brilliant atmosphere throughout. A colleague recommended coming here and he was right. I would highly recommend that a visit is part of your Edinburgh experience.

    Friendly reception and service throughout the lunch. Food is excellent as always. The business lunch is excellent value and the restaurant has a first class feel to it.

  • ((((( 20 April 2017 by Doreen Paterson from Aberdeen

    Lovely atmosphere, waitresses and waiters smartly dressed and very pleasant and attentive. Food was lovely, plentiful and not pretentious. Wine a bit over-priced but nothing out of the usual for restaurants.

    My friend and enjoyed thoroughly enjoyed the Express Lunch menu which is exceptionally good value for money. The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. The ambience is good although sometimes the volume of noise from other tables becomes excessive (but this can happen anywhere and is not the fault of the restaurant).
