The entrance to the restaurant is currently undergoing renovation, but overlook this and venture downstairs to a friendly, enthusiastic welcome, followed by some excellent Scottish food and fine wines. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for good food in pleasant surroundings.

I brought six business partners for dinner and the food and the service were quite simply fantastic. I cannot recommend highly enough.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
