In Sylvesters we found fabulous Scottish fare in a charming and quietly elegant setting near Edinburgh University - all at a reasonable price, which was perfect for our large group of 8. The decor was warm and unique - a throw at the window corner seats to keep warm, and sand timers for brewing the perfect cup of tea. Our dinner was fantastic from starters to desserts. I had the Maple Gressingham duck breast, which was appetizingly served with colourful beet root and sweet potatoes. The meat was moist and juicy - perfectly cooked, where I usually have to struggle with the texture of duck. My son recommends the gourmet jerk pork burger! The service was fantastic for us, being such a large group. We will definitely be back. Top marks for the food, service, and atmosphere.
