The ambiance was warm and welcoming on a freezing damp day. We enjoyed a really outstanding lunch and when the first amuse bouche arrived I said I would leave it as it contained beetroot which I can't eat, the maitre'd spoke to chef who sent me out a delicious alternative. The wines we chose with each course were absolutely perfect... More

I took my girlfriend and I here as a present for her graduation. We done the champagne lunch. The menu we had a great selection and the food was tremendous. The service could not be faulted and the attention to detail was superb. Will be back!

My husband and I have visited your restaurant 4 times and have never been disappointed. I would come every month if we could afford it! The food and service are excellent. I am looking forward to trying your Glasgow restaurant because it is a bit closer to home for us.

The food was very good as was the setting for a special occassion/fine dining experience. Although, a little on the pricey side. The staff were attentive and polite although difficult to understand at times (heavy accented) when presenting/explaining each course. We had to ask more than once for a second explanation. Overall, probably leaning towards good than very good due... More

My wife and I entertained relatives here for lunch as one meal in a gastronomic exploration of some of Edinburgh's restaurants. The superlatives have already been stated by other reviewers and I would not disagree with any of them. So I will offer two very minor criticisms that prevent a 5* review from me. The choice on the luncheon table... More

This review is going to be boring given the others I have read. Had lunch on 5 December and it was simply outstanding. The non a la carte menu was absolutely delicious and great value for money. You will struggle to get better anywhere in the UK. The staff were attentive but not obtrusive, service excellent. Yes, " simply the... More

We chose the seafood tasting menu with wine and were quite literally blown away by the quality of dish after dish. Superb We are booked in for another dinner pre Christmas and can't wait. If you book one restaurant whilst visiting Edinburgh this should be the one.

Had the most incredible lunch today. We had emailed in advance that we had a slight time constraint. Staff knew and couldn't have been more helpful, allowing a relaxed lunch without feeling rushed. We ate every dish on the lunch menu between us. All were superb. Everything beautifully cooked, nothing clever for the sake of it. All four amuses bouches... More

My friend and I had lunch here recently and it was one of the best meals I've had. We both had the tasting menu which was utter perfection. The matching wines were not what I would have chosen myself and all the better for that. The service was knowledgeable and unintrusive with the right amount of attention. The staff were... More
