We enjoyed a long lunch on Boxing Day here, and the restaurant delivered more than expected. We shared a sirloin on the bone and the meat was cooked to perfection. For sides we had a divine creamed spinach, broccoli that was just perfectly done al dente, and onion rings with a light and crispy batter. A bearnaise sauce and a bone marrow gravy completed the meal. The chef evidently knows how to enhance the flavours of the produce without killing it - nothing was overcooked or under-salted. The wine list is was good enough with samples from several regions and a focus on Rioja and Malbec wines, at very decent prices. The service was attentive and pleasant, and the interior is playful and yet very tasteful. We finished the meal with an excellent selection of local scottish cheese, and naturally some whisky with the coffee. We really could not have asked for a better lunch to end our weekend in Scotland. Finally the bill was a pleasant surprise, and considering the quality I would say it is well worth it.

I've been here several times with friends, family and myself. The wine list is excellent and varied and the food is always of the highest quality. The Wellington in particular was fantastic.

I'll start of by saying - the best steak I have ever had!
When booking I mentioned it was for our minimoon, they took note and showed us to the best table in the restaurant and we was surprised with a mini congratulations dessert and candles after the meal!
Our waiter was brilliant and showed us through all of the different cuts of steak, happy to talk through each one and explain what they go best with/how he recommends them to be cooked. I went for the guest sirloin and my husband went for the fillet. Absolutely delicious!

28 of my colleagues around two large tables for a Xmas set menu. All the food, service, drinks were fantastic. Overall cost was not too bad either for city centre. Would like to return to try the steaks as it seems to be the specialty. Recommended
