I like this place - I've been to the restaurant twice t but I've heard the bar/beer garden is also very good! The main restaurant is upstairs in average sized room which is cosy and is nicely decorated with fairy lights at the windows. The food is a twist on Scottish cuisine, but i felt it was very French! However, on both occasions I went to Cottier's the place wasn't that busy and lacked a real atmosphere, but maybe this was because I went during the week?
The food was presented to a high standard, tasted lovely (though my friend thought his food was a tad dry) and our waitress was very attentive. The prices on the 'A la Carte Menu' are pretty pricey, but the Table d'hôte is reasonable.

Lovely room and setting and we got a helpful and attentive waitress... Interesting menu, tasty food, but minute quantities for the premium prices.

Walked through the door, waiting to be acknowledged by waiting staff. We seemed to be invisible to them. Eventually sat down. The whole experience was just average, sadly. Such a great location and room, the main problem was the lack of attention from the staff, who seemed to be half asleep.
We ordered the starter- squid and pork belly. The description sounded amazing and so delicious but when it arrived it was just boring. Again average and not worth the £6.50 label. The main course was fine. Had to stare at the staff for a good 5 mins trying to catch their eye to get a coffee. Our espresso was in a large coffee mug when it arrived which seemed strange then had to go up to the bar to get an extra sugar otherwise would be waiting another long spell. No little chocolate or bit of tablet came with it which would've been a nice wee extra.
Overall average experience. Won't be rushing back. Sorry- no tip left.

I planned a post-party catch up for a Sunday afternoon, reserving tables 6 weeks in advance. On arrival I was told the tables were double booked and the staff could not care less. Compounded by food service stopping @ 2pm & staff who seemed to evoke an attitude that they were too good for the service industry. Avoid.
