Description: Cracking bar and separate bistro in the heart of Edinburgh's Georgian west end.Very popular with locals sampling local craft beers, malt whiskies and world wines. Everything is prepared freshly in the restaurant using locally sourced ingredients wherever possible. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff will look after you. You'll be glad you found us and won't want to leave. Open for breakfast in the bar, lunch and dinner. Famous for watching the rugby!!

“A gem of a restaurant”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

Lovely basement restaurant; cool on a hot summer's evening. Attentive staff, excellent food & fine selection of beers. Nice balance between more upmarket pub food and fine dining - not pretentious but different offerings. We had cullen sink (recommend highly) for starters & the 10oz steak (really nice) and the roast fillet of ling (also really nice). Would definitely return next time in Edinburgh.

“Now my favourite place to eat in Edinburgh”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

It can be difficult to find a restaurant for a large group, but this was absolutely perfect. We met for a drink in the bar upstairs until our table was ready (although didn't feel rushed). The set menu was excellent and the fact that we could bring our own wine, made for a much cheaper meal than we usually have when we get together. The service was fantastic - efficient and attentive but without being pushy. Love the fact that they write down who ordered what, so they quietly place your meal down rather than the usual shouted, "Who ordered the...?" As a group of friends who like to chat (a lot!) when we get together, the atmosphere here was perfect. Not too noisy so we had to raise our voices to be heard, but not too quiet so we might feel we were disturbing others. Also we were not rushed. I think this is the first time we have been for a meal where we did not feel that we had to leave as soon as we'd finished eating, it was very relaxed. We will definitely be back and I highly recommend it to others. Just one request...please open another in Glasgow!

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Great atmosphere, fantastic food and pleasant surroundings - along with good company made this a meal to remember. I had the chicken with smoked pancetta in a creamy sunblush tomato sauce and would dearly love the recipe. Not in Edinburgh too often but would definitely recommend the restaurant and will revisit when next in town!

“Food would not win any prizes”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Visited this restaurant as part of a large noisy party and found that we were treated as such.
Crammed in ike sardines, no elbow room, food arrived in deep plates with knives and forks. How to eat? Menu sounded eclectic and inventive but food was really quite lack-lustre and disappointing. Dietary requirements catered for but by deduction i.e. removing items from plate, rather than in a morecreative manner. At £25 for a three course menu that did not include any substitutes, and a begrudging herbal tea as a replacement. Staff were bordering pleasant to a point. It failed to light my fire.
