“Repeat customers”
Reviewed 7 January 2014 via mobile

I have been back to IS quite a few times the food is lovely and portion sizes are good. Prefer going in a group rather than just 2 of us as it makes for a better experience. The interior is quite bland but when the place is busy it has a great atmosphere. Wish they did a dessert menu based on their IS theme.

“Not Aviemore as shown! Leith in Edinburgh”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

Service good. Interior bland. Menu selection good. Sharing plates - average two per person is a good size and well reflected in fair price. Plenty vegetarian/pescetarian choice. However, someone has a thing for coriander! It's in everything! The chef must have a deal on it! Unfortunately an hour later I'm still trying to over-ride the taste! Also, be open and ask them to do something a about the music choice! The poor staff have been stuck in the 90s long enough! Also service wasn't included! I've just realised and feel slightly guilty!

“Just right”
Reviewed 2 December 2013 via mobile

The right mix of dishes and portion sizes.
Great for large groups and sharing all your dishes. Relaxed atmosphere.

“Nice enough, wouldn't rush back”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Concept is great, food was average.

The Ribs were awful though, got about 1 bite of meat off them. They were overcooked, dry and pretty disgusting.

The mini burgers were very tasty.

Staff were very friendly and the setting is beautiful.

I would say it is a bit pricey for what you get.

“Meal out with family”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

We were staying at the Waterfront apartments in Edinburgh for the weekend and looked for a restuarant near that would suit all our tastes. So glad we picked here. Great atmosphere , great service and wonderful.
The menu had lots of choices and we all tried to pick something different so we could share and taste everything. I don't think we relatives we had chosen so much. A tip is to chose maybe two each if there is a big party . The dishes were brought out at spaced intervals allowing us to take our time and really enjoy the food. Would certainly visit again .
