We booked this restaurant as we were in Edinburgh for the Royal Tattoo. We did not know too much about the menu but it was recommended to us by a real ‘foodie’ so we knew it would be good.
Everything about this place is excellent; from the moment you step in until the moment you leave you are left wanting for nothing. The staff are amazingly efficient and the whole place runs like a well oiled machine.
We started with cocktails in the bar and were given delicious flat breads with a creamy cheese dip. We were so excited by everything on the menu and found it too hard to choose so we opted for the surprise tasting menu. This was six courses of amazing dishes with wonderful flavours and beautifully presented, as eat dish arrived the waiter/tress would explain exactly what you were eating. One of the courses was grouse which was just superb. Thank goodness we were given the menu to take home as I would never have been able to remember everything!
It was my husband’s 50th birthday and unbeknownst to us my mother had contacted the restaurant to let them know, so they presented him with a wonderful chocolate cake complete with a candle at the end of the meal. It was just such a pity that we were so full but we still managed to squeeze in a slice!
This certainly was one of the most expensive meals we have ever had and therefore it had to be a really special occasion to justify the cost. But it was an experience that we will never forget and I hope that we can eat there again one day.
