Another 'Favourite Haunt' of my associates - I have been to this establishment on at least a dozen occasions, pretty much on a monthly basis.
Until my recent visit, I would have rated this as a 'Very Good', but had to give it a 'Poor' rating for the following reasons:
1. My friend asked for a dish, on the menu that he almost always orders, and it was not available - okay - so he picks another one at a price of £7.95, at which point the Waiter spent 5 minutes trying to persuade my friend, why not to order this dish, and go for a more expensive, more inteersting one. That seems very unusual, given that if it was such a bad choice, why would they have it on the menu.
2. The Waiter -and for the purpose of the management I will describe him, as the blonde surfer looking guy, perhaps the only one who does not look mexican - This waiter, asked on 3 occasions whilst sipping a drink, whilst eating, if we were finished yet. Certainly felt hurried by this waiter.
3. At the end of dinner, since we turned down the offer of coffee's (but we did plan on having a margarita) - The waiter, turned up with bill, and told us to go to till and pay, as they had a booking due (seemed strange as only 3 of the 8 central tables were being used)
These 3 reasons, are good enough to rate it very low... However, what I will say, is the 'usual' staff on every other occasion have been helpful and friendly on every occasion. Also, the pitchers of Margarita, are probably the best you will taste in Edinburgh.
We have debated whether to return here for food, and as yet have not been back, but perhaps just for a Margarita we might return.
