I have used Tripadvisor for many holidays but tend to just glance in to the Edinburgh forum as I live here. The last few times I have looked at the restaurant reviews I have been surprised by the top ten restaurants and the 5 star reviews they have been getting. I haven't been to them all but the ones I have been to don't seem like 5* places to me. Some of them are good value and serve nice food and I would recommend to some one wanting somewhere cheap and relaxed but 5* to me suggests something special. Some of the others I don't even think are the best " value" restaurants in Edinburgh and am stumped as to how they have hundreds of 5 * reviews? Some of the reviews themselves don't even rave about the place, one said you don't get a lot for your money, then gave the place 5*s?? Some of the reviews are from posters who have only one review but others look more genuine. Anyone else disagree with Edinburgh's top restauramts?
