“Amongst the best in the UK”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

I have eaten in nearly every top restaurant in the country (a couple still to do!) and I have no idea how anyone can review this without it receiving five marks. Even after reading those reviews I don't understand. 6 of us were staying in Edinburgh so took a 15 minute taxi ride to the restaurant and were given a good welcome and great service throughout. We started off with a bottle of champagne (the house) and it was a really excellent one. We then went onto wine, choosing reasonably priced as we were splitting the bill sensible not to go overboard, and the Gavi di Gavi was excellent but the Malbec was exceptional, especially for the price. Needless to say 3 bottles of that went! Onto the food and something which I had not tried in any other restaurant but they were very happy for us to chose different tasting menus (as no one would not be getting a course). This went down really well and between the 6 of us we had all 3 tasting menus. Everyone reported great food. Every time each dish arrived at the right person (of course!), each one was explained, and each one was consumed. Anyone who wants a top level restaurant and food must go.

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

The food and the service were amazing. If you like fine dining, you should check this place out. The location is a bit out of the way (in Leith), but that made it fun. We took the Leith walking path all the way back to Edinburgh; it made for a lovely afternoon walk.

“Always a delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

The food & presentation are a delight as always, but I have to say the more we travel & eat out, the more we appreciate just how good Cristophe & his staff are. Immaculate in appearance, they serve in a friendly & unfussy manner, & you don't have to go too often before they remember you. First time customers need not worry as they will be greeted warmly & efficiently. You never feel hurried & the Tues to Friday set lunch is beautiful if you don't want to do the a la carte.
