We visited this restaurant for a family meal. The fixed price menu was excellent value and I find it hard to understand why the place isn't busier.

Pleasant experience but with no Scottish staff working in the restaurant not the Scottish welcome expected, just adequate low key service - need a bit more enthusiasm. Food good quality and the set meal is good value.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
