I used to eat here regularly but had to stop for mobility reasons as it has pretty steep steps. Tried again but realised this will be my last visit. Not just for mobility reasons but food is not as good as it used to be...More
Atmospheric basement restaurant which can be a bit noisy when full. Good food from an interesting menu, Scallops with pea purée was very good, Lemon Posset with raspberries and ginger shortbread. Couldn’t taste much ginger in the shortbread but it was still delicious.

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
the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
