The price can only justify the location. Otherwise it is over priced to be sat at a tiny table that I would expect at a greasy spoon cafe. The food was good, but the portions were tiny, we won't be back.

Service was fantastic. Our table wasn’t available when we arrived but we were a little early. No worries...they showed us to a table near the bar/entrance and took a cocktail order for us. Service was outstanding and the food was great, especially the sole which was exceptional! The haggis was very good as well...definitely worth a try if you haven’t had it! Highly recommend it!

We enjoyed the Tasting menu with wine on Wednesday evening before going on to the Tattoo. It was a wonderful experience of taste and texture and colour. We appreciated the wine pairings and descriptions. And thanks to the waiting staff for making our meal such a pleasure.

Really very good food, lovely combinations of both flavour and textures. It's not cheap and don't go there if you value quantity over quality. But I was very full after three courses off the s la carte. black haggis is superb, lamb perfectly cooked and very tasty and the chocolate dessert is stunning. Very impressed. Planning to go back as soon as possible

Food was excellent as was the service although a little more expensive than I expected, not sure if that was because we visited during the festival

The sole was overpowered by the butter sauce and would have been easier to eat off the bone rather than on. Disappointing having to order a side based on the cost of the main.

The surroundings are getting a bit tired and tacky. Trip to the loos unpleasant. We had to keep moving for the waiters to get into the wine cellar. Not good.
Risoto a bit too liquid. Otherwise food good, but not as good as it has been.

The food was beautifully presented and totally tasty. Chef was fab as I wanted the lamb but have pea allergy and he prepared a tasty minty sauce alternative for me. Puddings are excellent. My friend had the duck and she said it was the best duck she had ever had....and she's eaten in some seriously exclusive London eateries! The dark chocolate pudding is sublime!!

Unfortunately a bad experience with the beef tartar. Within an hour of finishing the dinner I had stomach problems.
Otherwise a great restaurant with great service.
