My partner and myself had a fantastic evening here. Wonderful menu, great service and an almost continental atmosphere which is hard to find in Edinburgh. Thoroughly recommended!

I've never had a set menu before, however this was a first experience that did not disappoint. All the food was cooked to perfection, I've never heard of some of the things we ate but they were delicious. Friendly service added to the evening.
