    The whole evening from pre-dinner drinks upstairs to browsing the menu, through to the excellent food and service, we will definitely return, the venison was outstanding, but all the dishes were very much enjoyed.

    We enjoyed a very tasty lunch in the centre of the city. Lovely ambiance, attentive staff and great value. All members of my party were very impressed by the lunch menu and we look forward to returning soon! Thank you!

  • ((((* 8 March 2019 by Merri from Edinburgh

    Food is always imaginative and well cooked/presented. The lunch menu is exceptional value. Recent changes to filter coffee, as standard for the express menu, is fine but the coffee still needs to be hot! The 'new' bread is delicious!
    The service was a little slower than usual. Also, the Soave (I think) was not available and we were not offered an alternative at the same price. All small things, but noticeable to a 'regular' visitor!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Michael Neve Kitchen. The staff were extremely helpful and courteous and the food was quite simply outstanding. We will be back.

    I booked for lunch with two sisters. We were greeted and those arriving early able to wait in the bar area. We were seated at a table for three as booked. The only slight blemish were the rather wilting daffodils on each of the tables as apparently their florist had not turned up that day! However the food and service more than made up for that small disappointment. We had the set lunch menu. Both the sea bass and the hake were beautifully cooked and presented. The restaurant was busy but the kitchen and the waiting staff copped well.

    Lovely lunch and a great price. Can’t beat 3 courses and coffee for under £10. Granted small portions but by the time you had your Brownie as a sweet it was just enough for lunch. Nice attentive staff as well. Will definitely eat there again.
