This place was selected based on the strong quality of tripadvisor reviews (and being close to our hotel). I personally hadn't read the reviews, only received a text message that I should try this place and I am very glad that I did!! It really is a nice place. Food is excellent, the atmosphere is great. It is very small,... More

Visited with my partner on a Friday evening. The specials board was extensive & well explained. The restaurant is small & cosy, such a nice change from noisy, larger restaurants. We both had starters & steaks & a bottle of red. Every part of the meal was delicious. When asked if my starter could be made gluten free, it wasn't... More

But when I came back in May with two couples, we were a group of 6 people then, First time, they said it was fully booked at 7pm, I asked to come... More

Glad we looked at ratings and chose this great place - not huge but friendly and warm, with terrific staff and wonderful food. The Angus steaks were worth the visit alone! We would definitely return. Make a reservation - very popular!

Found this place on tripadvisor, which came highly recommended by most reviews - and the place did not disapoint at all! Cozy atmosphere and good service. We got the 2-course lunch menu, which for ~£12pp is an absolute steal, given the great quality of the food. Clearly one of the reasons why the place was packed until close. We got... More

We read the reviews of this restaurant prior to our visit. Based on these, we were expecting delicious steaks. We ordered the sirloin which was flavourless and full of fat. The peppercorn sauce was bland. We complained to the staff who later advised that there is a problem with their butcher. In hindsight the seafood may have been a better... More

This restaurant is amazing, fish and steak to perfection. I visited about 3 years ago on the recommendation of a colleague and had to visit again when I was in the area. The standards are well maintained and this place continues to impress. The small venue means it feels intimate and the food and service is amazing. Either book in... More

We came across this small restaurant by accident staying in a nearby restaurant, we only realized later that we were lucky to get a table spontaneously. Nothing to complain here: perfect and charming service, tasty food, good Scottish brewed beers and very sumptuous desserts, all in all a perfect find!

We both went to this restaurant with high expectations and were not disappointed. After a very tasty starter each, we both had steaks which were cooked to perfection. The accompanying house wine was excellent and we are thinking of returning the next time we are in Edinburgh. Please note that booking is essential as the place is quite small and... More

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
