Tucked away in a corner of the New Town this restaurant's character strikes you as soon as you go through the door and is what you might expect from its name. Shown directly to our table we were given our menus and very soon orders were taken for food and drink. Although a relatively short menu there is both a... More

Fantastic restaurant in the centre of Edinburgh . Just a short walk from Edinburgh's busy George Street this is a great French restaurant Smallish menu but you will find it caters for most . As well as 'A la carte' there is fixed price menu as well We found the food and service excellent

We went on the recommendation of a local and were not disappointed. My gravad lax was very good (perhaps a tad ungenerous), my pork belly with lentils faultless and copious. A feature for me was the quality of the wine; we had a Fiano, really first rate for £21, same for the CdR Parcelles at £25. Service fine too, the... More

We really enjoyed our dishes, everything was excellent from the fish to the veal. The wine was also perfect and the atmosphere and kindness of the waitress made this moment very pleasant.

Four of had dinner at Café St Honore last week. We hadn't been there for some time because we never felt it did itself justice. The situation and atmosphere are really great, providing one is not stuck through in the back room but...same old same old. We were definitely not impressed. The service was OK; the food was OK; the... More

What a great little bistro. The position, decor, food and ambience all combine to create the illusion of actually being in France. Everything was fab. Can't recommend highly enough and looking forward to a return visit.

From the outside it looks so French. Even inside the decor lends to the idea we have a wee bit of a Paris side street bistro here in Auld Reekie. So it touches the nostalgia buttons even though it feels very dark, deliberately so with all the dark varnish and paint. At least there is good crisp clean linen on... More

Clearly busy but left me disappointed. Had not been in for years and wish we had not gone back. The back room is dark but attractive, however it is not sealed from kitchen cooking. My tomato soup tasted strongly of roasting. Duck leg was a generous portion a little over cooked on a mound of lentils. A pleasant bottle of... More

Looks great from the outside. Warm welcome inside, lovely authentic setting. The food was fine just nothing that really struck me as exceptional. Perhaps I had a bad night.

Been a few times here for lunches and dinners over a few years and at most times of year. Never fails to be anything but excellent. Food always superb and was no exception this week at lunch time. Good choices on a few different menus - Express, Classics for example. Service is always good and staff very knowledgeable. One of... More
