We found this place while exploring the area and decided to have dinner. For some reason ( perhaps because we did not order beer or wine ?) we received poor service; servers seemed to “ have an attitude”. After receiving our entrees, we had to...More

Pleasantly surprised to see they do gluten free pizza as this is so rare to find in restaurants. Pizza was delicious and I will definitely be back!

This restaurant offers excellent service and very good food. The owner acts as host and greets and seats you. It's a busy place, but you never lack for attention from the owner or the staff. Prices are reasonable.

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.
