    We tried tasting menu. It was tasteful experience.

  • ((((( 10 October 2018 by Lorraine from Aberdeen

    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***

    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.
