Great food, steaks cooked to perfection and good sized portions. Was really busy after the Ireland Rugby match but the service was very friendly and efficient. Have been before and will definitely be back.

We visited Edinburgh as a family for the rugby and did some research as to where to eat in the evening and came across this place, thank goodness! Although the interior isn't super special, the food certainly is. The scallops were gorgeous and the fillet was the best steak I ever had (and I am partial to a fillet steak)!... More

Came to this restaurant when visiting in Feb! Loved our evening as the food was delicious, excellent service and reasonably priced Make sure you save lots of room as very generous portions. Would recommend and return when we come back to Edinburgh.

Really enjoyed my steak here. Didn't try anything else on the menu, so can't speak for that, but they do a good steak.

Halving walked by many times on the way to and from a nearby hotel we use, the need for red meat and an Edinburgh sleet storm made us cross the threshold. Very glad we did. A warm welcome awaited and a cosy table in the corner was offered. Keeping things simple we passed on starters and went straight to the... More

What great food! Fantastic garlic mushrooms and scallops on black pudding as starters. These were followed by succulent ribeye steaks, cooked to perfection on a griddle. Delicious! No room for desserts. Would we go back? You bet!!
