    Absolutely fantastic evening. Staff could not have been nicer and the food was delicious. We were totally impressed by the vegan 7 course tasting menu provided for one member of the party - exceptional service.

    Classic French menu with fresh Scottish ingredients, expertly executed. Menu was good quality without surprises; service staff was knowledgeable about food and cheeses. Sommelier was exceptionally good, offering thoughtful and inteeesting pairing to the tasting menu which I think is a must.

    Nous avons passé une soirée délicieuse.
    Les plats sont créatifs et excellents et généreux . La carte des vins est originale. Service et accueils impeccables et chaleureux.

    Oui, pour l'aspect visuel plus que pour la qualité intrinsèque des mets. L'agneau d'Ecosse est joliment entouré de pois mais il n'est pas tendrisse. Le turbot est bien cuit (un peu trop, même...) mais on saisit mal l'apport d'une huître et d'une langoustine (par ailleurs délicieuses).

    As always, No.1 doesn't disappoint. The vegetarian tasting menu was lovely, although having had it before, some of the dishes previously were more to my liking. Missed the cauliflower soup, it was always amazing.

  • ((((( 22 July 2017 by Leah from Edinburgh

    Great welcome followed by a fantastic experience with a staff member who was extremely helpful when it came to drinks and wine. Everybody was very friendly and very attentive. The atmosphere was lovely. We enjoyed the food very much, particularly the chicken main dish which in fact should have been served with a small jug of extra jus on the side as it was delicious! A very special and fun experience. Would definitely return. Thankyou to the front and back of house staff!
