I used to work in Edinburgh one day a week for almost two years. I often took a walk up the royal mile and I would look into the Witchery and think, someday, i will bring my special someone there. That day was Friday 26th Oct. The place is stunning, so romantic, a very beautiful location and the staff were lovely. Imagine my disappointment when the food tasted bland! We opted for the £30 menu as we thought it would give us the chance to try 3 courses each at a reasonable price. I had the soupe au pistou, a very tasteless, bland, minestrone type soup that required a lot more seasoning. My partner opted for the salt cod, which came out as a purée and tasted of very little. Our mains arrived, vegetable tangine for me, again, tasteless, bland, boring, and my partner had the mullet, of which the portion was TINY, served with two peeled baby potatoes!!! We didn't have high hopes for the pudding! Luckily my marmalade brûlée was delicious, my partners knickerbocker glory a let down. The bill came to £78. For what I had planned to be the highlight of our trip to Edinburgh, was such a let down that it left a bitter taste in my mouth. A beautiful establishment, awful food. We popped into Whiski the following day, a gastro pub, for something quick before our flight, the food there was fantastic, tasty, good potion sizes, Pleasant staff, not the opulence of the Witchery but great value for money food.
