We had a delicious meal. The Blue cheese burger was topped with generous amount of rich cheese . The ostrich burger ,from all accounts was excellent. The burgers were cooked exacly as we asked for them - a range of medium rare, rare and medium.

We had to ask for the stir fried veg, which did not come with the order, but arrived shortly after we asked.

The only down side is the wine list leave a lot to be desired. We could not really find anything we were prepared to spend money on, so we ended up with Beers, juice and water. It's a pity, beacuse a glass of wine would have finished the meal nicely.

I would definitely go back to this restaurant due to the service being great and the meal being consistent. The sauces, specifically the pepper sauce, is out of this world!

We visited the branch that had recently opened at Atholl Square and the burgers were really good.... and the shakes were awesome as well. I had not been to one of these restaurants for quite while, but the quality was still high although it seems that the menu has gotten a bit smaller.

This place sells itself on the pricey burgers, so I had to try it. When asked how I would like my burger done (warning bells!) I made it clear that I wanted a *very* well done burger. The burger that arrived was medium at best and sent back. The next one was medium again and again returned to the kitchen. By the time it arrived everyone else had long finished their meals. Not exactly a great experience. Oh, and the burger was mediocre at best.

The food here was nice, the service good and it was good value. The choice was somewhat limited. Cannot fault the food that we got, everyone was happy, but there are better places in the resort.
