“saturday night meal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We booked after seeing good reviews on trip advisor, the bistro is based in a hotel in the suburbs of edinburgh, but well worth the visit, it has only a small menu but with very tasty options. We would recommend this restaurant to anybody visiting edinburgh, good wine list and the food and drink is value for money.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Food excellent, and decent wine at reasonable price. Chef takes an interest in what you think about the meal. Out of the way - bit tricky to find - but worth a visit.

“A hidden treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

My wife and I noticed the signs for this excellent restaurant on our daily work commute and one night on the way home we stopped off for an evening meal there. There are many good places to eat in Edinburgh but this, for me, was a cut above most of their rivals. The food was great but affordable, the portions more than generous enough for an ever-hungry diner, and the atmosphere friendly, warm and down-to-earth. The husband and wife team who run the restaurant were excellent hosts and their obvious love for good cooking and high quality service shone through. Go there now!

“Place to be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

We found this restaurant thanks to tripadvisor. Small restaurant but great atmosphere. The food was of great quality and the cook and service was excellent. Cook came to the table to ask if everything is ok. If you are in Edinburgh do a search for this restaurant and you will have a great evening.
