Unfortunately, this restaurant has closed down. The chef was very promising, so this is a shame. We went 5 times and enjoyed each experience.

I bought an offer for a meal at this restaurant - and I'm glad I did. The service was good and the food was lovely - the steak was "spot On". I would recommend it. My compliments to the chef.

Totally enjoyed the food concept of this place. During the day until 4 PM, you have the option of "small bites". They're quite reasonably priced, inventive and well prepared. We shared four and it was just the right amount of food. My wife had a...More

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
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
