The pasta is cooked very well and the flavours are spot on. The haggis ravioli are a nice marriage between Scottish and Italian food. Like the decor and the ambiance, very casual and cosy. The perfect place for a quick, yet tasty Sunday dinner.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
