My son arranged this venue as it is very near to where he lives so I was not expecting it to be anything special, however, I was surprised with this delightfully unexpected gem. Our party had two veggies and two meat eaters and both were equally well catered for. The pistachio and feta cheese dip was amazing and the veggie... More

Knew we were in safe hands the moment we arrived and the lovely waitress suggested we needed two Prosecos! Yum! She also added a couple of 'sides' to our sharing plate as we JUST COULDN'T CHOOSE WHAT TO TO HAVE! So kind! The sharing plate is to die for, right up our street and we could eat like that all...

Brilliant - menus always imaginative - now so popular they start serving at 5.30 - which can be great for theatre / film goers.

We stopped in here on our last night in Edinburgh for dinner. We had an early reservation, 5:30, and knew that another table would be coming in at 7:15. That's absolutely not a problem. What was a bit irritating was the waitresses needs to constantly remind us of that. It felt pant 8 and rushed when we were given approximately... More

We've have lunched here several times and enjoyed it each time. It is such great value - 2 courses for £10. Lots of choice and an eclectic range of foods. Beautifully presented and tasty dishes The staff are really friendly and never stop! It gets very busy and, because it's a small place, book to avoid disappointment

Quite small, and just off the main street (Bruntsfield Place), this place produces very good food. The menu is well written and is nicely varied. It covers a whole range of cuisine styles, from spicy Asian to more traditional fare such as Ham Hock terrine. Friendly welcome and efficient service. Highly recommended. It gets quite busy at lunchtimes.

Had dinner with a group of friends. The sharing platters were amazing and the service was super good too. Such a lovely atmosphere and it felt so comfortable. Have booked again for a few weeks with another group of friends😆

Consistently amazing food & service , the duck was especially good! I would definitely recommend booking though as it is quite small.
