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.

Sebastian was incredible and so quick to serve as at all times, very effective and kind with his service . Hard to find nowadays, so that made us choose this restaurant the all days from our trip, just because the food was delicious of course...but it’salso the fact we’re feeling at home and he welcomed us really well, and extremely polite. Thank youMore

Food was delightful, service was excellent. Our server Chris was clearly busy but made time to make sure we were well looked after. The complimentary anniversary ice cream was a pleasant surprise.

We booked here after a recommendation from my cousin. It was better than we expected, Chris was our waiter and he couldn’t have done enough for us. Excellent food and we will return next time we are in Edinburgh.

Setting of restaurant is real impressive- Salad bar offers really good selection Immaculately kept chefs regularly preparing fresh dishes. Nice selection of meats on offer served to ones preference our experience was regular cuts Skirt etc constantly being served had to ask for cuts like...garlic filet mignon & very small portion offered garlic filet mignon, Offered more drinks after waiter noticed we had empty glasses ordered 2nd bottle of wine, at end of Rodízio we were offered deserts as celebrating a birthday we ordered deserts & coffee once deserts & coffee arrived we felt we were being rushed by house staff to quickly finish off to get us out the door.More

All good, meat could be a bit more cooked. Service was really good but when our waiter went for his tea nobody would take over which was a little bit underwhelming

We had lunch on my husband's birthday. The food was delicious, the meats were fresh, and the atmosphere of the place was positive. We were served by two waiters Chris and Lucas who were welcoming, friendly, and professional. When the waiter, Chris, found out it...was my husband's birthday, he surprised him with a dessert as a gift. It was a wonderful gesture. I can't recommend this place more. I would rate the experience 10 out of 10.More

Me, my wife and my brother-in-law visited for lunch on Tuesday 21st. We were asked if we had a reservation, which we did not, but thankfully we had arrived when it was quiet, I’d say we were lucky so make sure you book in advance...to avoid disappointment. Our waitress was Magdalena (blonde, nose piercing- very sorry if we got your name wrong!) who gave us a warm and friendly welcome. As this was our first time, she explained how the whole thing worked: you can get your salad and veg as much as you like, you are given a special coaster, green side means “more meat” and the red side means “no more thank you”. The staff bring you different kinds of meat to try out and you can always flip the coaster over to red to give yourself a break if you do so wish. Magdalena (again, sorry if we got your name wrong) was friendly, professional and answered all of our questions with ease. The gentlemen who came over and carved the various meats were also friendly and had a great sense of humour…. Be warned they will also keep asking if you “want any more” which, because we are weak willed, we agreed! In fact, we were blown away by the whole experience: excellent service, wonderful atmosphere and the standard of the food and wine was amazing. The manager came over and asked which was our favourite that we had tried and even asked if we wanted more of it…. To which I agreed whilst my wife and her brother watched as they were too full. We went for the lunch time option which was around £32 a head, and we felt for everything, this was amazing value. Thank you guys!More

I’d book to avoid disappointment at not getting table, but I guess it depends on what day of the week you want to go. Weekends, Friday to Sunday, I would definitely book. We visited on a Friday evening and had a booking... More
