We chose Cafe St Honore over other nearby restaurants as we have always enjoyed the consistently high quality of the food, ambience and service. On the Wednesday night in early December when we visited the service was, as always, excellent. The ambience was not quite so good but we had been advised that there was a large office party booked... More

I haven't been here in far too long. Needed to book a table to meet with son and daughter for lunch and catch up during their exams. Ran through sleet down cobbled lane towards the cafe. Lovely welcome. Table was by window so that we could look out from warm, candle lit restau on to wintry weather. Service was perfect... More

Ive always wanted to come here but never got round to it either because i was too broke or put off by the price which is really the same thing isnt it. Alas however i finally took the plunge recently and i have to say i was not disappointed. Although you feel like you are in a Parisian bistro the... More

We had lunch during the week and although it is small, the kitchen produces a good freshly cooked selection of food. Friendly serving staff and interesting menu (they had just started a Christmas menu too for groups). I had the Ham terrine which was extremely meaty and well pressed - just as it should be. My sardines were good too.... More

I'd forgotten how great this little restaurant is. The food was wonderful, the service great and the ambience is perfect. You feel that you're in Paris! We went on a Monday night and it was busy - always a good sign - and we weren't disappointed. We all had an excellent evening.

An intimate, cosy ambiance for a special event or a romantic meal. The menu always reflects the best available Scottish produce, imaginatively combined with both classical and new recipes. We like the combination of friendly service and reasonable pricing and advise booking because this restaurant is justifiably popular.

We have been to this restaurant before and this return visit didn't disappoint. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the food is consistently good! It is deservedly popular - don't book using the internet. I tried to book using the restaurant's own website but it only offered tables at 10pm or 6-30pm neither of which was suitable so I... More

Went here after reading a review in the Sunday Times, and it was better than expected. Food was wonderful, service was slick. Will come back when I am next in Edinburgh.

Second visit to this Restaurant in 3 months - this time for lunch with friends. We had not booked and were very lucky to get a table on a busy Saturday lunchtime. The fixed lunch choices are limited but the food was perfect and portions substantial. Really cannot fault anything about this small French restaurant - good food, friendly and... More
