Quaint and inviting, the food here is well prepared and delicious. Seafood dish was delicious as was the lentil soup. Service by the very friendly Marilyn was superb. She was very helpful recommending and explaining dishes. Marilyn is a true credit to the restaurant.

We had booked a table for lunch here, based on good location near the castle and good reviews. And we surely were satisfied! Even our somewhat picky teenager ate his plate empty. We had a starter and the main course. Lunch menu was appealing, it...More

We were fortunate to come across this restaurant near our hotel. It was such a pleasant atmosphere and the food was beautiful. Two dishes i think deserve mentioning are: the ribeye steak (rare); and, the fondue. Thanks to the chef and staff!

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
