My wife and I shared the cote du boeuf and it was exquisite, up there with Edinburgh's best steak restaurants and at a lower price. The front of house team, led by Peter, are very welcoming and professional. I would recommend dining here to anyone, not just hotel guests.

    Excellent service and fare. Shame we were the only people in the restaurant at lunch time!

    Cote de boeuf was delicious, as were the chips and onion rings. Desserts were great too. Only a shame the tasting menu wasn't available.

    Everything was excellent. The ambiance, the service, the food was extremely flavourful and special.

  • (((** 7 July 2018 by P from London

    Tiresome refusal to add an extra table setting, requiring to be authorised by kitchen. Insufficient bar staff, and poor coordination of bar account with pending restaurant account. Fine and sohisticated cooking, well executed. Good service, but intermittent and under strain.

    Overall: wonderful cooking, weak front of house.

    Excellent food and really pleasant table service . Turbot main was delicious as was the key lime pie . Crockery was unique and would replace all my own in a heartbeat with similar. Lacked a bit of atmosphere but I guess that’s because restaurant was close to empty. I imagine it’ll have a different vibe when tables are booked out with more customers. Thoroughly enjoyed lunch and will come back for dinner next time
