Small but cosy place with an impressive selection of wines, but a very limited menu. My boyfriend and I both tried mains from their Specials board - he had risotto and I had farfalle... Both were very tasty, just a tad bit under done on the risotto's part. The farfalle was super tasty and creamy! Service was just ok. Some... More

Limited menu. Never had bruschetta with cold tomato before! Main courses ok but nothing special. After main course was cleared away were left without being asked if we wanted dessert or coffee even though waitress was not remotely busy. After 15 mins we went up to the bar to ask for the bill.

We booked in for Saturday night it was right opp our hotel near Waverley train station - great wine selection (esp by the glass) at reasonable prices. The menu is limited but also has daily specials made fresh in front of you. Really enjoyable night v nice atmosphere

I met a friend here and was surprised to find the place empty on arrival well into lunchtime. Having sat in the window seat, it would appear our presence made it more attractive to passing punters, which proved to be to our detriment. Most other clients were attended to before we were, and the waiter / barman who dealt with... More

Stopped in for drinks and food on a Sunday afternoon. Antipasti, wine flight and cheeseboard combo is a must. Absolutely superb!

This place is a regular drinking hole for me when I'm out in Edinburgh, with a warm cosy feel, great tasting light food and a great selection of wines by the glass or bottle. It is pretty small so can get pretty full, but it's generally with locals not tourists, which I always take as a good sign of quality... More

I have visited this restaurant many times and was looking forward to my Saturday lunch but what a disappointment. The king prawns were dry and tough no hint of chilli or garlic they had been heated through dumped on a plate with a slice of lemon and wilting rocket. The Parma ham was taken straight from a packet, I watched... More

We ordered bread and olives, penne and tomato, chorizo and potato salad and risotto. The wine was picpoult de pinot and good. The meal was tepid. Only the risotto survived. Is h. Management very kind but need to actually ask what would be required to make food acceptable.

i find any excuse to come to Edinburgh and never miss the opportunity to eat in this fabulous bar. On my last visit, I was alone and sat in the window with a book. The food was wonderful as always. . . .but the bar staff were terrific. Very attentive and the service was spot on. I have recommended to... More
