Great selection to suit all tastes and everything prepared to a high standard. A very enjoyable meal and reasonably priced too.

“Lovely Christmas meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

We went there for our staff Christmas lunch based siumply on the reviews here. We were not disappointed. Felt like you were eatting expensive food from an expenspive menu but the price was very reasonably. Staff were attentive and welcoming and lovely small place but plenty of space we were not crammed in. We loved the chance to relax on the sofas at the end of the meal. The chef also managed to provide a Christmas pudding which was not on the menu. All in all a great Christmas lunch!!!

Thank you

“Lovely place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

I have been to this restaurant quite a few times both for 'Birthday meals' and 'just because' meals. The welcome is always very warm from every member of staff. The service is attentive without being overly so.
The food is always delicious and the staff are always on hand to help you with their recommendations.
Special mention must go to the dessert platter- small, tapas-like portions of the restaurants desserts on a slate plate. And they don't mind you sharing this between two.
I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Great food, good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Went to restaurant on strength of its tripadvisor reviews/ranking - safe to say its justified.
Great food at a reasonable price, good flavours and food combinations. Nice, relaxed atmosphere, can't go wrong!

“Authentic French food in Edinburgh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Unusually situated in the basement of a small hotel - the restaurant is cosy with a French feel - not only down to the French staff, who were charming and welcomed us warmly.

Truly exceptional food - escargot followed by confit duck leg served with Toulouse sausage on a bed of red cabbage a triumph - I could have actually been in le Perigord itself. Exceptional value for money.

If you are vsiiting the University campus take the five minute walk to Salisbury Road - you won't regret it. I can't wait for my next visit.
