“excellent tasy food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Lovely tasty steaks. We all had different meals and all were good. Nice atmosphere and friendly owner. Only down side the seats were quite hard and uncomfortable.

“Il be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

I had be recommended this place by my workmate and I was very impressed. My girlfriend and I shared a lovely starter of jallapeno poppers then onto the mains. I had a sirlion steak whilst my girl had a stilton burger. The steak was delicious with chips and a tasty coleslaw. The burger looked ace and she couldn't finish it it was that big. The service from the owner was great and it felt like I was sitting in my own house having tea, cosy and relaxed. I will defo be going back soon and I would advise anyone living in Edinburgh or visiting to visit this wonderful little diner, you won't be let down!

“Katies's Diner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

The following is based on a first time experience with myself and another person where we both had the cheeseburger and a beer. We both enjoyed the burger but were disappointed with the cheap oven chips and overly-mayonaised coleslaw. For the price I would have expected the quality to be higher. The staff seemed very friendly and we felt relaxed and unhurried. I like that you can BYOB if you want but they offered a nice selection.
