    Lovely restaurant with a perfect ambience. Food was superb and the tart tatin with whisky marmalade - wow!! - what a finale to an already fine dining experience! Will certainly return when back in Edinburgh.

    Great staff and value for money

  • ((((( 18 August 2018 by Lynsey from Edinburgh

    Helpful and attentive staff, I’m currently pregnant and the bartender kindly made me a non-alcoholic cocktail which tasted lovely, he also made an excellent gin bramble cocktail for my partner.
    The food was perfectly cooked and the balance of flavour in the dishes was perfect, my partner doesn’t normally eat seafood but said the scallops lovely. The venison and halibut main courses were beautifully cooked and presented.

    Lovely food, we were a party of 4 and everyone enjoyed what they had. One of our group had never eaten here before, but says she will definitely return.
    I was the one who had made the booking online for the 4 of us, but in fact by accident I had actually only reserved a table for 2. This was during the Edinburgh Festival where restaurant tables can be at a premium. However, the staff dealt with the situation very well, and quickly re-organised things in the busy restaurant to accommodate us. I was very grateful and mightily relieved as well!

    Unassuming entrance but go downstairs for all of the magic! Exceptional wine selection and delicious food, I loved the lamb!

  • (((** 14 August 2018 by M from Edinburgh

    Extremely slow service. Very noisy in low ceilinged room with all hard surfaces. Some sound baffling required. Apart from that pleasant environment with reasonable food.

    super service and really good food. Would like to come back and recommend this restaurant to others.

  • ((((* 12 August 2018 by Rosemary from London

    A friend recommended this restaurant for good food in relaxed pleasant surroundings- which was definitely our experience. We all ( 4 of is) had 3 courses each and really enjoyed everything except the pigeon carpaccio starter, which was disappointingly tasteless. Service a bit amateurish in places but also exceptionally charming.
