Consistently excellent service from the staff. I could not recommend this restaurant enough (clearly from my many photos). I stayed at the Salisbury Hotel above and just stopped by to take lunch to my room upon arrival. I had not anticipated enjoying my Croque Madame so much. This led to a series of delicious room service dinners with wine. I... More

We ate at this restaurant in a group of 8 family & friends. It was off the back of a TA forum post suggesting it as walkable from the Pleasance (bit too far after dinner in my view - we took a short taxi ride instead). Having said that the restaurant was really very good and worth the walk out... More

Cafe Cassis had been recommended by the B&B as well as an old friend who lived locally. On arrival it looked promising and the staff very welcoming. The menu was limited, but with the daily specials should meet most needs. When the food arrived, we were all disappointed. The Scallops tasted good, but very lacking in scallops. The mains were...

This closing at this location at the end of the year which is a shame for this neighbour hood gem. It does really good lunchtime deals and specials. Service can be quirky but efficient .

Been a couple of times for lunch and dinner. The first time had some gluten free friends - who were specifically catered for by the chef - who came out to enquire how he could help. Garden is a boon for parents who might get some peace whilst their children run around outside. Great service and food.

Lovely French restaurant tucked away in a quiet suburb of Edinburgh. Amazing French cuisine with great service. Very friendly staff. No rushing.

The staff was lovely even though we showed up one hour before closing and ordered bottle of wine, started, main and dessert. Our bill was around 60 pounds so not bad value for what we got for it. They have taster dessert which includes few small different dessert and we loved it - nice for sharing (or not ;).

Having visited once before and been very impressed we took two friends there for dinner. Both were lavish in their praise of the starters and main courses, in particular the chicken stuffed with haggis and the sea bass, but they were absolutely astounded at the quality and presentation of the desserts. The Assiette Gourmand (a selection of desserts) is a... More

Great food, and friendly and helpful staff. We enjoyed their pre-theatre menu. Prices were typically for Edinburgh. It's a little away from the centre, but well worth the walk.
