A very cosy restaurant - by that I mean you sit quite close to the next person but don't let that put you off - it didn't bother our group of 4. The waiters were very friendly and attentive, they kept pouring our wine for us which is always a nice feature I think. The food was lovely - we didn't have a starter which we were pleased about otherwise we wouldn't have eaten our mains, we saw other peoples and they were a very generous size.

I took a party of 8 for dinner. We sat downstairs and the restaurant was full all evening. Food choice was very good and the food itsself was excellent. Service was quick if a little brusk at times. The house red wine was good and the whole thing was pretty good value at £50 per head for 2+ courses, gratuity and plenty to drink.

The food and service very good. My only issue is that the portions are enormous. For the first time in my life l sent back food uneaten as laws completely full.

Lovely restaurant setting. Food delicious and wonderful desserts. Huge portions. Love the ambiance of this restaurant. Service a little slow, but we were also not pushed or hurried to leave restaurant once we had eaten. Price wise: Bread for table, 2 mains, 2 deserts and a bottle of Rose just over £80:00, Would definitely dine here again.

Fantastic menu, with loads of classic dishes. The wine list is also very good. Portions are quite large, with lovely fresh ingredients. The sea food dishes are particularly.

What a find! Gorgeous little restaurant in Charlotte Place. Very friendly staff and great food. The portion sizes are huge so you may prefer to share a starter as I wished I had. As I said the food is great and really flavoursome - we will most definitely be booking in here again and I would say you definitely do need to book as they struggled to get everyone who came in through the door! It did get quite noisy but it was great to see a packed little place on a Monday evening.

Best meal in a long time! Loved the food and the atmosphere of the place. The portions were very generous and so tasty! The vegetables on the side were soft but firm, cooked to perfection. Would definitely go back very soon!
