My brother and I took my mum here for a special birthday. My brother had been before and recommended it. We were intending to go to an upmarket restaurant in Edinburgh city centre so I was a bit apprehensive when he chose here instead. I was not disappointed!! For first course I had the mussels, which I don't normally eat,... More

They say good things come in small packages, this is definitely true here, from the moment we entered, the service was superb, the menu matches the location, with a variety to suit most tastes. I can highly recommend the mussels either as starter or main course. Both the grilled plaice and bass were cooked to perfection. We couldn't manage the... More

Its a lovely little place and was quite busy for a wednesday lunchtime. The set lunch menu isn't huge but had a nice selection and reasonably priced, I chose the mussels to start and... More

We visited this little jewel of a place in April with friends. A little difficult to find at the moment because of building works on the third Forth Bridge, but interesting to see the bridge progressing. It is situated in a cottage in the main street of North Queensferry and parking is free at the door. The dining room is... More

Went here for a family meal to celebrate our 25th Anniversary. The food was excellent. Three of us had steaks and they were perfectly cooked, the other dishes were also prepared to high standard. The restaurant itself is not as good as the food. It's pretty draughty near the door with a continual parade of smokers going in and out... More

Thanks for taking the time to review the restaurant. We are delighted you enjoyed the food. Obviously we are less delighted that you felt a draught from the door on your visit. It's something we do battle with and try to combat with blow heaters etc. Unfortunately with us being so wee we can't have a foyer area. We take... More

My wife had the sliced belly pork. We also had the cheese board which had a good selection of cheese and biscuits. It was very much a lovely meal... More

Second experience, and we will return. Out of the main tracks, hidden under the old railway Forth bridge, this small restaurant worth a visit. No lack of atmosphere even on a quiet evening. Excellent menu The chef Craig, is at the top of his job: assemble menues with flair, extremely well balanced taste and flavour. Classy and fresh. Very attentive... More
