An absolute gem

It may look like a quaint village Hall from the outside but don't let that fool you, the food could be straight out of a 5 star Hotel in any major city in the world. The attention to detail is immediately obvious and the care taken to select the right ingredients is apparent from the first bite. If... read more

My wife and I were celebrating a birthday with two friends and we treated ourselves to dinner at la Potiniere. Lovely, relaxed atmosphere, nice welcome and unobtrusive expert service. Worth every penny. Definitely going back.

The lunch menu, at first glance, is not awe-inspiring, seeming to settle for safe options given there are just two choices of starter, mains and dessert. The awe began soon enough, though, with fresh-baked bread....cheese & cumin and fennel & sultana while we enjoyed pre-meal drinks. My husband allowed me to order and then ordered for himself the other option... More

First visit to this restaurant. It came highly recommended and we were not disappointed. Food was delicious and lovingly prepared. Every element carefully presented and the service was personal and informative. Can not wait to return.

Arrived slightly late for our table at 1pm but welcome still friendly and warm. The restaurant was quiet, there was only one other couple. The menu is limited (2 starters, 2 mains, 2 desserts & cheese) however they check dietary requirements when you book & this ensures the food is fresh & seasonal. I am pescetarian but the starters were... More

Potiniere is a small restaurant serving wonderful food. The menu has 2 choices so you know the food is fresh. Dinner has a couple of surprises for your taste buds. I can highly recommend a surpurb meal.

We've just had a wonderful family Sunday lunch in La Potiniere. The quality of the food is wonderful and the service is excellent and very friendly. The cost for a 3 course lunch plus coffee is only £25 which must be the best value in the Edinburgh area.

If you are thinking of having a special meal out then certainly take a look at this little Gem. The blend and freshness of the ingredients made my taste buds tingle. From the pea & mint soup with a creme de menthe foam to the delicious Guinnie fowl what a treat.

Went for a pre Valentines Dinner of Friday 13th February. there was a special Valentines menu which included a Champagne cocktail. Everything was superb including the recommendation for a reasonably priced bottle of wine. One of the most delicious bits of beef I have ever had was the star of the show but every course was brilliantly executed. Quite outstanding... More
