During these challenging times it was wonderful to experience a great meal. While the menu was limited for options, which is completely understandably, the food was exceptional. The hake in a green peppercorn sauce was a real highlight. Our server Jasmine was faultless. From great recommendations for our order to her personal suggestions for other places to try in the area, we are very thankful. When we mentioned to her that the place we where staying didn't have a corkscrew, she gave us hers. You can't teach that level of hospitality, Jasmine Rocks! Thanks guys, we will be back!

Stupendous. The food was awesome. First time trying haggis and it was so nice.
We didn’t really enjoy the pudding that much. But the overall rating would be very good!

Amazing service, attentive but not overly so, with a great sense of humor. The food is superlative, wine list is good value (which isn't something I can say about some of the competition). Will definitely be back soon!

Well looked after by friendly enthusiastic staff. Impressed with cleanliness and Covid secure arrangements. Delicious food and a surprise complimentary glass of Prosecco each on arrival to celebrate 10 years of opening. Wine relatively expensive compared to food prices which I found very reasonable. A great place in the historic Royal Mile.

I ordered the fillet steak but without the pepper sauce so what I got was a steak, slightly overcooked, with a few salad leaves on top and some chips. At £28.00 I thought this was very expensive for what I got.

Free class of Prosecco on arrival to celebrate there tenth year open... can not grumble with that
Service was excellent, staff all nice. Food was excellent, three courses for two with drinks for less than a hundred quid. The chocolate honeycomb salted caramel desert was worth going for just on its own.
Would highly recommend to anyone going for nice dinner or special occasion

It was great to be back in one of our favourite old town haunts. We were welcomed with a glass of bubbles and although the ambience like everywhere else was blighted by acrylic screening the food and service more than made up for it.

This was my second visit - ten year gap! But if I lived closer this would be a regular place for me. Firstly lovely staff - secondly food of the highest standard - worthy of a Michelin star - in my opinion . We had the tasting menu with wine- the quality was outstanding ! Could not recommend this place highly enough.
