    This is one of my favorite restaurants in Edinburgh, and I come here often especially for business dinners with guests that visit University of Edinburgh. The food is excellent, very tasty and the presentation is great. The restaurant is very chic, and has a feeling of authentic Scottish restaurant. The staff is extremely friendly and efficient. We've been here the other day with our 1 year old boy, and the waitress who helped us was really kind to him. Would recommend without reserve.
