Stunning room with beautiful decor.We both had the 5 course menu with matched wines along with two Martini aperitifs total cost £270.00. Not cheap but I think worth every penny, the whole meal took around 3 hours all the staff were very welcoming and helpful particularly the lovely young lady sommelier who chose some great wines for us.The food was...

The meal was delicious, and the wines were perfectly matched to the courses. The décor was superb and we felt very comfortable from the moment we walked through the door until we left after being well looked after. The atmosphere was friendly and it was good to be able to watch Paul Kitching working with his staff throughout the evening.... More

The food was delicious, but a narrow repetitive pattern of foam and mysterious reductions. Very Heston Blumenthal. Wonderful atmosphere, but condescending staff. Grossly overinflated wine prices, with a selection that takes advantage of people's generally poor recollection for European wines and an obscure collection of antipodean wines. And to bustle out a £1200 dinning experience with 10min warning, after asking... More

This is a review that is complementary to the one I've already done for the hotel. We ate in the restaurant once during our four-day stay here, and it is by any standards -- food, service, room design -- an exceptional experience. Left to my own devices, I would have probably given a four-star review (I understand the feeling articulated... More

Took clients here last night and was blown away. Each course was sublime. Very good wine list at not so Michelin extortionate prices. Had one of my all time favs, Château Musar. The townhouse itself is wonderful, decor is stylist but not OTT. The use of space is great and the lounge upstairs was very classy. I especially liked the... More

We came here for my 21st birthday meal, it was the only Michelin Star restaurant in Edinburgh that we hadn't been to yet. The food was absolutely incredible - when I ordered my food, I hadn't thought it sounded very tasty, struggling to imagine what a deconstructed Ploughmans would look like! I decided to trust the chef and I'm very... More
