This was a magical find! The best Mediterranean I have found in Edinburgh so far! I ate here last night 6.6.17 and was greeted firstly by a lovely French waitress. She explained that is was BYOB (bring your own booze;) which I didn't expect, however she did explain that if we went across the road to an off license we could drink what ever we bought!! some wine it was then!!

A starter I would recommend is the breads and dips. The dips were outstanding! they have a smoked aubergine dip - we both loved and never tasted before!! 10/10 for food and service!!!

We started with bread and olive oil Also. The venison salami was very good. My wife had grilled chicken and rice and I had lamb chops with okra. Both were very good. The baklava and ice cream dessert needs improvement. The service was excellent. Prices reasonable.
Bring your own bottle or go across the street to Mama said and pick up a reasonably priced bottle.

Overall, we had a pleasant dinner. I had the hamburger special, my wife chicken stir fry... the food was well prepared and the service was attentive. At their price level (which is relatively high) I'd expect a little extra. In my view, the food we ordered was average...

Wonderful place to be. Very nice and friendly people. Slightly spicy but very delicious. It's not the same favor of normal spice we get in normal Bistro, for me it's a restaurant quality. My new "bistro" in Edinburgh

Called in here this morning. Lovely friendly staff but nearly £8 for 2 small muffins!! You have got to be joking won't be going there again or recommending it. Seems like it's trying to overcharge tourists which I can't stand
