Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Small and quaint with great service and delicious cakes/breakfasts. Loved it. We will be back! Sausages were delicious which is always the mark of a place using quality produce. Coffees were great too. ☺️

The Painted Rooster offers a blend of, what appears to me, to be French and Polish cuisine with modern conveniences thrown in for good effect. We could not turn down the opportunity for a burger with raclette cheese, and the burger wrap was absolutely to...die for. The charming decor and warm service complete what is a truly exceptional menu. This restaurant is one not to be missed.More

Unbelievable food at a reasonable price, especially for the potion size. I went for the Chicken burger were it was cooked to perfection along with the best sweet potato fries I've had in a while. The staff were so friendly and seated us immediately as...we stepped in. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the areaMore

We stopped in after walking over from the airport bus stop while waiting to check in to our Airbnb. It was probably closer to lunch time (almost noon) but we had breakfast since we hadn't eaten yet today. We had poached egg on toast and...scrambled egg on toast. Both were excellent. I had some apple cake that had been baked that morning and it was good too. Service was good and friendly. The atmosphere is nice. It feels like a local hangout and is downstairs. We wanted to come back for lunch one day, but were so busy sightseeing that we didn't get back to this area.More

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
