Set lunchtime menu was £33 for three courses Nice food but fine dining size portions. crème brulee was to die for. Service was good but it feels a bit formal.

The set lunch menu was really good value, canapés/amuse bouch and three phenomenal course, all washed down by some amazing wines which we would never have chosen ourselves but were a perfect balance with our food choices. Service was good and the staff were very attentive without being intrusive. We will definitely visit again.

The best restaurant in Edinburgh. If you dine here you surely won't be disappointed: excellent food & service, stylish decor and unusual location. You will enjoy this place if you look for something sophisticated and extremely smart.

We visited this restaurant for lunch which was a set menu. From the minute we entered the restaurant we knew we were somewhere special. A seat beside the fire to order a pre lunch drink, gently peruse the menu and for the staff to understand and note my faddish dislikes!! And, boy, they took these on board better than anywhere...

This is simply the best place for high-end dining in Edinburgh, together with its cousin The Kitchin. As you can see from my previous reviews I'm a regular here, and for a reason! Chef Jack can play all flavour keys, from bold and assertive, like the Inverurie lamb or the pork trio with appple sauce, to delicate and ethereal, like... More

After being gifted a voucher for here to enjoy a set lunch - castle terrace is a new favourite! Lovely restaurant with stylish look. The set lunch menu was fantastic and hard to choose which dish to go for. Each course was amazing from 3x magical little canapés, to an entree, hot bread and starter drinks. Staff were so attentive... More

I visited this restaurant today and can say it is the best meal I have had at any restaurant in the UK, however I understand they lost a star last year !!!!!! I THINK THE INSPECTORS HAVE GOT THIS ALL WRONG AND THEY WILL LOOSE CREDIBILITY QUICKLY IF THIS IS TO BE NORM WAKE UP INSPECTORS !!!!!!

Lovely ambience and attentive service team let down by the kitchen We had the taster menu and it took 1.5 hours to get to 3rd course The scallop we waited 25 mins was overcooked.Sent back to kitchen and a replacement arrived in no time that was perfect. My reason for this poor rating is that the salmon and the burger... More

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
