The food here is absolutely amazing! It is so worth going! And the service was first class. And it's reasonably priced too. And they do gluten free! Lovely!

The restaurant was really busy and we didn't have a reservation but the staff were really accommodating and found a small table for us to sit out for a few minutes until a table large enough for our group became available. Even though we weren't eating at that stage we were given menus to look at, the specials were explained,... More

We were sat in the back room which can seat 24 people, nice and bright with the window pen for a welcoming breeze. Service was attentive but sadly our waitress first our salad we added to our mains, I do wish waiting staff would leave this new trend of looking clever with no paper behind! Anyway starters were lovely ,... More

We popped in for coffee and delicious biscuits at about 5pm, between Fringe shows (you find yourself eating at very odd times during the Fringe!) and we have vowed to go back again for a 'proper' meal as the menu was interesting and the food looked great. The staff were friendly and the ambience was lovely. The lunch and dinner... More

Enjoyed a lovely evening meal with good service. Portions were quite large which resulted in us not having room for a dessert. Decent prices too. Also had breakfast here. I had the full "English" while my wife had the vegetarian breakfast. She said that she enjoyed it but did find it on the dry side not enough moisture on plate... More

Went here with another couple for a pre theatre during the Festival. The price of the two courses was good, food was average the wine expensive. But it was the unfriendliness of the waiters that put us off. They didn't smile, we felt it was a chore for them to serve us and we left feeling very unsatisfied. There are... More

We came here last Saturday, having booked in advance (probably recommended) We were seated in the back room which is basically a plain white room with little decoration. The tables are quite close together so it is inevitable that you will be party to the conversation of others and vice versa The service was excellent as was the menu choices... More

Camping nearby Edinburgh n popped into the centre to find this little gem. A small place and was made very welcome. All our food from bread, starters and mains were fantastic and some of the best food I have had. Definitely make the effort to get in here when in Edinburgh. Try and leave a little room for dessert too... More

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighborhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighborhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicenter Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
