    We asked to change from the menu we'd booked as we didn't want to have 3 courses. This was no problem and they still gave us complimentary glasses of champagne and coffee. Left a decent tip though given this!! The food was excellent and the wine we chose was pretty damn good also. Yes the Tower prices may be a bit steeper but then you get what you are paying for. Great service and fantastic views of Edinburgh. Will definitely go back some time.... soon !! :-)

    The food was excellent exceeded my expectations . The vegetables and fish were fresh and not overcooked, presentation was colorful with unique combinations. The beets with salman starter was fantastic. Great atmosphere, beautiful view from the rooftop out over the city. Would highly recommend for fine dining in Edinburgh.

    We loved it! The welcome, the service, the food, and the atmosphere!
    The duck and the deconstructed cheesecake were particularly appreciated!
    The fish (hake) was perfectly cooked. This is rare!

    Service was too quick with plates being wiped away, on taking last mouthful, no time to settle at table before being asked what drinks we wanted. View of Edinburgh castle was non excistent, my main course was Luke warm generally tasteless.
    Not an enjoyable experience!
