Sourcing the best in Scottish produce and incorporating a rich French twist, favourites from the Brasserie de Luxe menu include duck breast, boudin noir, salad lyonnaise & steak tartare maison. Guests can dine in the main dining room amongst glossy bistro furnishings and swathes of indigo leather, or at the polished bar for a more casual vibe.

An expertly sourced wine list complements the rich flavours of the dishes, and a sterling menu of French-style indulgences includes apple tarte tatin with crème fraîche.

    Typical brasserie style restaurant. Nice ambiance, great staff and beautiful food. Haggis starter was divine and sirloin steak like butter - melt in the mouth. Wonderful meal and despite being a lone diner I was made to feel very welcome

    As always, very good food with fast, efficient and courteous service.

    All fine except for being rather noisy for the first half of our meal. The room is totally lacking in sound absorbing surfaces. The noise came from other diners, not from the staff.

    It was a very good experience.
    We all enjoyed our meal
