    Food excellent

  • ((((( 16 August 2015 by Rodney Stares from Edinburgh

    The restaurant was superb; the room, the decor - a traditional Edinburgh Georgian front room but with sensitive modern touches - the service and most of all the food. I could have happily eaten any of the items on the menu and even the plates were warm, a strange but all too common shortfall in top end restaurants. Besides the usual amuse bouche one even got a dram of an old and very unique malt at the outset just to get the proceedings off to a good start. Also, unlike all too many restaurants with modern, minimalist decor it was possible to sustain a conversation without shouting. I would certainly go again and who have no hesitation in recommending it highly.

    Lovely meal in tasteful dining room. Good service and ambience. Would certainly return.

    Excellent food and good service - not too attentive or overbearing which suited a business dinner. Courses a good size, plus a bonus of small aperitif and whisky sample. A joy to go somewhere without piped music! Lacked a little atmosphere as there were relatively few diners but that wasn't a problem for us.

    Really enjoyed our evening. Excellent menu with delicious freshly frepared food. Beautiful dining room and great service.

  • ((((( 18 February 2014 by A Mattacks from Milton Keynes

    The food was absolutely lovely, the meat was succulent and the value we paid for a 3 course meal plus a glass of drink was outstanding (£18.95pp). The service was great and they were very helpful with regards to my partners dietiary requirements. It was a lovely place to go for a nice romantic lunch on valentines day, but could most definitely be used on any occasion. I would highly recommend this eatery.

    Booked for a birthday meal. The food was tremendous as was the wine that we ordered. The service from the staff were informative but not intrusive and contributed to an exceptional evening's celebration.
