Went here to celebrate my 40th Birthday. We went for the tasting menu with wine.
It was the best meal we have both ever had.
Every dish was cooked perfectly, the flavours where incredible. Great wine and also fantastic service.
If or should I say when we have a return visit to Edinburgh we will defiantly be booking a table at Purslane.

Top marks!!

This really is a little gem of a restaurant in the Stockbridge part of Edinburgh. It's a small place with cosy atmosphere, good service, and, most of all, great food. I've been a couple of times now and it's been excellent every time. On my most recent visit I splashed for the taster menu and found it was well worth the money. Highly recommended.

We had a voucher for a tasting menu and went midweek. Had a great 5 course meal with very attentive service. Wine reasonably priced too. Would definitely recommend to anyone in Stockbridge.

To celebrate a birthday, we came here to try the 7 course tasting menu with paired wines, on offer with a voucher. It surpassed all of our expectations.

The restaurant is located in a basement, smaller than your average living room. We shared this with 2 other couples so it was very quiet yet still had a cosy and stylish atmosphere. The service was laid back yet very attentive, with each course described to the smallest detail when placed in front of us.

The food itself was simply sublime. We were taken on a culinary journey taking in salmon, quail, sea bream, and pave of beef. Each course was unique and each of the wines matched perfectly.

I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for something special, as I just could not fault it in any way.
