Service was very good, and my meal was very good. I talked my wife into the Wagyu beef as she had never had Wagyu. Honestly, in-between the sinew the meat was amazing but the cut had strings all through it and it was not good. I did not believe her complains so I tried myself, not good for what it was supposed to be. Everything else was great but when you spend that kind of money you expect it all to be 5 star.

Our meal was absolutely delicious. We decided on the 'taster' menu and were not disappointed. The staff were friendly, professional and very knowledgable and the food was different, tasty and full of flavours. The restaurant itself has a relaxed but formal feel to it - a very inviting ambience - and added to a perfect evening of dining. Our meal exceeded expectations.

Me and my girlfriend were up in Edinburgh for two nights and on the second night we chose to eat here and I must say it was worth every penny. The staff were flawless, the food was outstanding and the whole experience was impeccable. We had the Scottish Beef and Lobster and it was outstanding. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we felt very well looks after nothing was too much for the staff who were very attentive ad knowledgeable. 5***
