After a spell away, we managed to get a reservation here just a few days in advance. That is how popular it is. Food was excellent with a scallop starter delicious to taste and well presented. The Thai soup with coconut and fish cake was good too. The menu choice is limited and only fish or lamb for the main courses is not much of a selection. There are several,chef's freebies during the meal. The only downside is that more serving staff are needed;we have thought this before. The manager at front of house is very professional but over stretched. Nobody poured the wine which should be normal in a quality restaurant and we couldn't get the bill because he also does the desserts!

I have been enjoying La Potiniere for special occasions at lunchtime for many years with family and friends and have never been disappointed. Their attention to detail, pride in their locally sourced produce and value for money cannot be matched. Just make sure you allocate the time (2 hours) to enjoy the whole experience

I have eaten here on many occasions, both lunch and dinners over the last few years and have never had a bad meal!

Anyone looking to eat at a restaurant where you are not rushed to finish your meal, enjoy homemade bread, lovely palette cleansers, excellent wine and amazing food then this is the place to go!!

Highly recommended by my whole family!

This is the place we go to for relaxed quality dining. We live in Musselburgh and its cheaper to get a taxi into the toon to some of the pricy Michelin stared places. The food here is exceptional, reasonably priced and the relaxed, single sitting ambiance fits the food perfectly. You even get served by the chef. Well worth the journey.
