Really nice restaurant which lots of space. The food was very good and reasonably priced. Lots of choice of vegetarian dishes and different from normal restaurant offerings. Would recommend the mushroom strudel and polenta chips. The staff were very friendly. Really enjoyable evening.

The restaurant, staff and experience at the restaurant was lovely. The strudel was very nice, however not sure the sides alongside matched in flavour. Anyway a lovely restaurant and would definitely go back any time.

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
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
