Very busy restaurant and that is understandable - the staff were excellent, the service was first class and the meal delicious. Would recommend it for anyone going to the Playhouse - it is right across the road. Excellent meal.

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street;
even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The

I'm sorry, I don't know the answer to this. Why not give them a phone before you go? I phoned beforehand to book and they were really nice and helpful. Hope you have a lovely time.
