Excellent meal in a great little steak restaurant in Rose Street, attentive staff, fantastic food, one of the best steaks I've had in a while and they're willing to show the provenance of the supplies - always a good sign.

Excellent properly cooked steak dinner here. Friendly, knowledgeable and helpful waitress, lovely cosy vibe, lots of local and traceable food. Recommend the cranachan ice cream too.

play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many

helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
