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

Located on Morrison street this small restaurant has plenty to offer. Great food and a relaxed atmosphere all adds to this little gem in the heart of the city. 2 min walk away from the Usher Hall and a 5 minute walk to the famous Grassmarket area of the city
