Fab location, great service and superb food. The crab cannelloni was devine and washed down by a very nice prosecco. I'll definitely be back!

An interesting restaurant building in the old Town, with window seats offering a good view of Princes Street. It’s a chain restaurant, but we were very pleasantly surprised by the high quality of the food. The fritto misto starter was crisp and packed with seafood and vegetables. My spicy chicken pasta was very tasty. My wife really enjoyed her prawn linguine. Our waitress was brilliant, looking after us attentively.

Welcoming arrival after finding the location just off the royal mile. A very busy atmosphere as during the fringe festival so waiting a little between courses was slightly testing. Food was excellent as was the waitress. Would definitely visit again.
