A lovely occasion

I brought my mother here for Mother's Day Lunch. She is rather hard of hearing and so we requested a quiet table. I was a little taken aback to be seated next to the entry door, but actually this was a good choice - we were far enough away from the next table and the area we sat in was... read more

We eat here midweek and were able to get a table quite easily, the restaurant is styled on a French bistro and is very cosy, the seats are a little hard, I kept sliding off mine, but this is just an observation, not a criticism. I ordered duck terrine as my starter and my partner had the soup, both were... More

We enjoyed a wonderful meal at this restaurant. When we arrived, there were only a few other people and we were worried that the atmosphere would be a little dull. We were mistaken as it was shortly buzzing with people. The menu is small but everything looked so delicious, it was hard to decide what to eat. The French dishes... More

Went with friends for lunch, 2 of whom are dairy free, and were extremely happy with what was on offer. There was a whole menu available that was dairy free, so my friends were ecstatic. Turns out that 4 out of the 5 of us ate off the dairy free menu as it was so good. Great lunch offer of... More

As an Edinburgher I have to say that this is one of the best restaurant meals I have eaten in dear Auld Reekie. It was a bustling Saturday night, & the place has that quintessentially French feel: dark wood interior, mirrors, black + white tiling, fresh flowers on the table. And rapid service: we were whisked through our meal without... More

If you find yourself in Edinburgh be sure to eat at Café St Honore. It is superb. We visited the Restaurant last Sunday evening. The Restaurant is tucked away on a back street but it looks ever so French. We were shown to our table by a very helpful young Polish girl who answered any questions we had about some... More

Went back to Café St Honore last Sunday - our previous visit was about 10 years ago. This restaurant gets an overall 4 star rating on this site - and this is the correct rating. However, if the owners took on board the feedback on this site, responded to customers on the site, and made the requested changes, then this... More

Sophistication and honesty do not always sit comfortably together but this fine restaurant successfully combines the two in its cuisine. My partner and I dined there on Friday evening. The menu items (both on the a la carte and the set menu) were mouthwatering which led to a difficulty in making a choice. Our very helpful waitress, a young woman... More

My girlfriend and I ate here last week and as a previous diner mentioned, the menu is very confusing ! They give you the menu and don't mention the 2/3 set course in tiny writing right at the bottom. Nothing special, choice of two starters, two mains and two sweets for£19.95. Choice was Cottage pie or smoked haddock, really !!!... More

booked after reading revues on trip advisor. Had a really enjoyable evening. Arrive a little early for our booking but we were shown to our table by a very nice waiter. Drinks order taken immediately and then time given for us to peruse the menu at our leisure. Had a starter of Orkney birsay which was a bread from Orkney... More
