We had a lovely evening meal where the food was good, the staff polite & the general feeling of the place very pleasant. My husband requires gluten free food which was no problem at all. We will go again when back in Edinburgh.

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
