What a great night out! The good and service were perfect!! Would recommend to anyone visiting Edinburgh that they have a meal here. Easy to see why they have been around for such a long period of time. It was clear that they take pride in the meals they serve their customers. Thank you for a great meal.

Went there after looking for some new restaurants on tripadvisor, and I do not regret it one bit. When we first arrived and went down the stairs, we weren't really sure of our decision. It's a very small place and can feel a bit claustrophobic at first. The interior is really lovely though! I had venison in a strong red... More

Went here on based on TripAdvisor reviews. Food totally stunning the venison was mouth watering. Busy but in no way uncomfortably full, staff where very attentive without being pushy and the fact once you had finished the meal they did not throw you out was very refreshing. On a slightly amusing side note the taxi driver who dropped us off... More

Visited for the first time but think this wee gem will become a favourite. Special of collops of beef, pickled walnuts and lemon thyme- every mouthful appreciated! Friendly, family service. Wine list suitable for menu.the Whisky bar next door good for post dinner drink, great range.

Been here twice now and both times outstanding food and service. Just a small restaurant but just perfect for those intimate nights out or small celebration. Would highly recommend it.

The quality of the meal was superb. What more can you ask for than great ingredients, well prepared and combined with flair? Service was friendly, efficient and attentive. Combine all of this with an informal convivial atmosphere and you have the recipe for a memorable night out. We will be back.

I'd expect most people to miss the entrance to this little beauty and they'd be missing out! Once you are downstairs the atmosphere is cosy and the service is great! Food was excellent, the main didn't blow my mind but my partners was sensational, starters were both excellent though. Great idea to go here for a special occasion or if... More

Without Trip Advisor reviews we would never have looked for this little jewel, down the stairs and into a little basement restaurant with some well set tables, white cloths, and lovely aromas. How lovely to come out the freezing Edinburgh drizzle and be seated and welcomed as we were. I scarcely looked at the menu after I saw the beautiful... More

Great food, nice cosy atmosphere, very friendly staff and a thoroughly enjoyable time. I will be back at some point and look forward to it. If you're thinking of trying it out I cannot recommend it enough. If you are planning to go at the weekend it is probably best to book in advance as there aren't many tables.
