    The experience from when we entered the restaurant was absolutely delightful. The staff all made us feel very welcome and at home. As for the meal itself we both enjoyed every minute of what we can only describe as perfect. Thankyou for making our evening that extra special

    We did the 7 course taster. Beginning to end presentation was impeccable but the smoked salmon was over-the-top.

    The meal was fantastic, only surpassed by the excellent customer service... I came with a broken foot and on crutches and your staff couldn't have been more helpful... The attention to detail was great.. and when my partner had finished her glass of champagne, the waiter was there with the bottle of Rose as promised to fill her new glass... as in fact he had promised to do.... The quality of the food and the taste was exceptional.... my partner said it was " probably the best dining experience she had ever had" Plus the small touches like a small gift for her birthday was much appreciated. Thank you!

    We celebrared a birthday and had the seven course menu and one vegetarian meny and it was excellent. The premium wine menu was excellent also and matched perfectly with the food. The sommelier was very skillfull and thought us a lot of interesting things about the history of the wines. The whiskeysmoked salmon was amasing. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable evening.

    Both my wife and I enjoyed one of the best dinners we have ever had at the number one in Edinburgh. We had the four course menu with matching wines, all the courses were matchless and each was so different, but by far the best was the beef main course. The sommelier was so knowledgeable and his wine choices were perfect. Thanks to Brian and his team for a memorable experience.
