We visited in August when bookings are hard to come by. The experience was unique and almost family style. The food was good and made fresh. The menu choices were new to us but we took a chance. Everything was good and flavorful. The restaurant...More

Good food, good service and a reasonable price. Quirky design, no complaints from me or my partner. Would return.

I have been coming to this restaurant for a number of years - and always look forward to our visit. The combination of an informal (upstairs) dinning space that feels like a bistro/bar but serves more serious food in a light filled space makes this...More

This was my favorite meal in Edinburgh. It was a quirky place filled with locals, up on the 2nd floor. I had a wonderful bowl of barley soup. It's busy and lively.

Felt like we were dining in someone's house. Has a really vibrant, city feel to it. The food was pretty good but most of all, I enjoyed just relaxing there. Nice that food was served in quircky un-uniform different dishes.

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,

No parking in the building. There is on-street ticketed parking in the area during the day, free in the evening (after 18.30) - but it does get busy.
