Well worth a visit!

We poped in for a quick lunch with my partner! He had the Pork and I had the fish of the day! We both agreed it was one of the best meals we'd had in a long time! Reassuring to hear the chefs speaking french which means it's the real deal! Both girls that served us were lovely and very... read more

Beautiful restaurant, arrived on a busy Friday night and even though the restaurant was buzzing they were really welcoming, gave us a lovely table on ground floor. Food was absolutely fantastic, the Camembert fondue as a starter was exceptional, served in an edible filo basket and the calamari tender and tasty, we both had fish of the day which had... More

Really smart decor similar to a boutique hotel and great service from the maître d' and the Australian sever. Pork belly and mash was very good quality and the alcoholic Drinks decent value too Returned after 2 years and will definitely re visit when next in town

Popped in here for lunch, fancying something French. Excellent, varied menu, I had the mussels to start which were superb, possibly the best I've had in Edinburgh (certainly better then the Mussel Inn's ones!!) All the dishes were perfect and the waitress was helpful and attentive, especially with my 6yr old daughter. I will definitely be back!!

Whilst in Edinburgh for a long weekend had dinner here twice. The food and the service were excellent. A lovely atmosphere and ambience. A perfect place for a special meal. Not. Cheap but worth every penny. Will visit again in the future.

Get down for lunch between 12-5 and you'll get two courses for a tenner, although the wine isn't cheap if you get stuck into the decent stuff. Probably the best haggis (and arguably overall tastiest food) we had all weekend, the fish special and mussels were delicious. A really lovely setting just off the old town, not to be missed...

If you like Vietnamese based food with a French interpretation, then this restaurant would be a good choice. It's an interesting combination. The place also has some northern African dishes. Don't go if you want authentic Vietnamese food though. It was very busy on the Saturday night we went to this restaurant after walking through a very lively Grassmarket on... More

I have been to this restaurant four or five times now, over as many years, and have never been disappointed. My visit last night was the first in a while, so my memory may be imperfect, but I was surprised when our waitress told us at the end of the meal that they had just re-opened following refurbishment - because...

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a really lovely meal here, the atmosphere was romantic, the service was good and the food was tasty. The staff are happy to recommend dishes and knew plenty about them, I had a venison main and it was perfect. I would return here, the only downside was that they cram alot of tables into a... More
