“Fantastic breakfast, but service got slow once we finished”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

We went as 4 people to have breakfast on a sunday morning. We got seated and the first lady serving us was prompt, quick and friendly.
Food and drinks came quickly and tasted fantastic! I had the eggs benedict. Yum!

Up from then it went a tiny bit downhil. We finished food and the plates got picked up, but then no-one came anymore if we wanted anything else. The quick girl from the morning got replaced by another young, tall girl, who was not paying any attention to us at all. We did not saw anyone for 30 minutes and had to wave for quite a bit to get at least the bill as we then had to leave already. It is commong curtesy to check on guests at least every now and then if they want anything else.

“Lovely food fantastic service”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

Visited this restaurant on Thursday. Very busy and we were offered a table right beside bar fairly busy but staff came and advised us that another table away from bar was now available. Food was really lovely, there were 4 of us and all our meals were excellent. Could not fault anything, especially our waitress who was called Lizzie from Dundee. She was excellent and went out of her way to look after us. Unfortunately, we had to leave to catch bus to Fife just as group was setting up or would have stayed longer. Would Definately eat here again.

“It's ok for lunch”
Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

A busy city centre restaurant. We ate from the lunch menu and the food was fine and very inexpensive. Service was ok considering the number of tables occupied. However, I wouldn't go there if time was short. Good wholesome food at very low prices.

“Nice food, prompt service”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

Really enjoyed my visit to Indigo Yard for a business lunch (particularly as my colleague picked up the bill) We both opted for the mackerel nicoise, which arrived promptly, and really was packed with flavour. In and out in less than an hour - perfect for business

“Amazing venue, food and drinks let down only be the service”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

Love this place it's laid out and decorated so well, had the burger it was amazing and I've eaten here before always very good love the drinks list but the service is inattentive at best and unprofessional at worst. This venue could be so amazing but having empty glasses on my table after plates are cleared even though the drinks were finished before my food, unable to order more drinks or deserts from my table as the staff are always at the bar chatting to colleagues both on and off shift, not one person asked how my food was generally just forgotten about after my initial order was made and having worked in some of London's and Edinburgh's top venues a swell as at sea more than anything is disappointing to see what would be amazing venue be mediocre because if something so simple I would also have easily spent another £10-£15 today with better service maybe the owners need to look at the management of this place
