Visited on a cold winter's evening. The restaurant is tucked away up a lane but easy to find from George / Queen Street. It has a certain charm in the obvious gallic style. We opted for the goats cheese and salmon starters - the former...More

We visited as walk s last month and although they were busy they accommodated us and it was great. Especially nice was the beef blade and pork belly. Quite dark but very atmospheric. Unfortunately male and female looks are shared - only bad point.

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
