I was staying close by at the Marriott so this was easy. I had the salmon which was excellent, and fairly priced. The service I received was excellent and very friendly. Easy to recommend.

Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
