Only in Edinburgh for a few nights, so wanted to pick out a few decent restaurants before we came. As it was, we booked somewhere else for our first night (also reviewed) which was absolutely stunning by comparison to this restaurant.
The menu is not particularly elaborate but I much prefer it that way. The meal was ok with some nice combinations and nothing was served badly. The atmosphere was quite loud and at times it was difficult to converse. The restaurant was busy and the staff were rushing about like flies which didn’t help the ambience, although they were polite if not personable.
My other annoyance is the automatic adding of a 10% service charge to a bill. It is up to the customer to decide if they would like to leave a tip - not the restaurant!
Overall, the food was good, but the atmosphere noisy and rushed. I would much prefer to spend exactly the same amount of money at the restaurant we went to the previous night, which was 5 courses including the complimentaries and which was served in a fantastic setting with attentive, pleasant staff.
