We were in Edinburgh for my birthday so came here for my meal. We are from Aberdeen so go to that one a lot. Food was fresh, well cooked and tasty. Place was very busy, atmosphere was great. Recommend any Amarones - always well fed!

Beware if you are vegetarian because V*means veal rennet and they do not tell you. Manager is quite appalling and blames head office because they write the menu. Asked for waiters to bring this to customer attention. No way will they do that.

Wonderful service and fabulous food. The scallops and bacon, and the Frutti de Mare were very good. I just saw the Calzone go by and it is huge and looks amazing. Son had Margarita Pizza, 20" pizza, and the crust and pizza was perfect.

After a busy day, this looked like the ideal place to get a bite to eat. Must admit not bad. The service was quick and positive with my starter of tiger prawns in a chilli sauce arriving promptly. This was simply exquisite, large, buttery tiger...More

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
