Our friends booked this restaurant for part of their Silver Wedding celebration. The food was lovely and the service was friendly but a bit on the slow side. The restaurant was very popular and was buzzing from the minute we arrived.

Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
