Me and my girlfriend went there on a Friday night. The place itself is quite small and there was only one waiter service the 4-5 tables in the room. Unfortunately, she likely was a new waiter... She made quite some mistakes and she obviously wasn't capable of providing a proper service.

This said, the food was delitious. We both had a 3 course menu and we loved every dish! Chef Marius is very good in taking proper care of every dish he delivers. The food looked lovely on the plate and it tasted fantastic.

Despite the unfortunate service, we would definitely reccomend Seed Bistro.

This is the second time we have been to this little bistro in Dalry and again we have not been disappointed. The first time was chicken stroganoff which the chef discounted for us because he had had a rush on it and was unable to give us all a full portion. Thought that was pretty good. Once we knew we were coming back to Edinburgh for rugby we were planning to come back to the Good Seed. We were the only ones in the place and then heard the sad news that the good seed is closing. Fear not though, Chef Marius is taking over a new establishment in a more central location and will be starting soon. The meal was fantastic, simple steak, chips and greens with the other half having chicken breast, garlic mash green and a simple jus. Simple fair beautifully cooked, melt in the mouth steak and a lovely glass of wine. Pudding was perfect chocolate fondant, oozing with orange scented chocolate and the adults a lemon posit as smooth as ice and sweet and citric in taste. The service was excellent, the prices amazing as everything was adjusted by chef as this was the penultimate night of service. Everything was cooked to order with Chef letting us know that main would be 18mins to cook from fresh, what more can you want! To sum up, excellent food, excellent service and a crying shame that its closing after tomorrow night!! We'll definitely be going to the new establishment when its open!!

Well thought out flavours, fantastic sized portions and deliciously cooked!

I looked at the pictures and thought 'meh' but followed the reviews and stopped in here on our way out the city for a fairly early dinner.

I can say say that it was one of the most honest plates of food i have ever eaten. You won't leave here hungry and you certainly won't be disappointed, the chef has created a menu with something for everyone and can execute it very well.

The flavours are inventive but not frighteningly so and deliciously balanced.

The service was very friendly but unobtrusively so and the wine list was great and very reasonably priced!

We will be back and are really looking forward to it!

Thanks guys!
