We had eagerly awaited this lunch date and were not disappointed. We selected the set lunch menu with matched wines and started with a glass of champagne as our taste buds were tantalized with the canapés. All expertly presented and delicious. Each wine was expertly...More

Edinburgh is just fabulous & this restaurant is one more jewel in its crown. No detail was overlooked, we were made to feel pampered without obvious fuss.

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

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
