Having eaten at the Compass for a number of years I can say the standard of the food and service on our last visit was well below average. My steak was dry and very thin for £15 the pepper sauce was watery and a light grey colour. My partner had fish off the specials menu which was better but not to their usual standards. For around 12 tables there was one person serving and every interaction was started with a well versed quip the delays. The girl serving was wearing a see through top so all we could see was her pink bra and belly, enough to spoil average food further. The guy behind the bar looked like he had been playing on leith links before he got to work, his jeans were dirty and grass stained. If the owner thinks this is acceptable we will not be fooled again. I felt sorry for all the tourists eating in the restaurant and I really hope they don't think this level of service, presentation and standard of food they would get in Edinburgh.
