    The food was very good especially the chicken entree. We also enjoyed the crab starter. We would come back to this restaurant on our next visit to Edinburgh. The service was very polite and attentive.

    This was a really friendly, welcoming restaurant with excellent food, service ... and cocktails. It was lucky we had booked in advance as the place was really busy and many were turned away disappointed - thankfully we were anything but.

    Clearly we had a bad lunch, we’d gone because of great reviews. Hit with an off oyster. Not their fault. But so pungent it was surprising that no one registered it. Very greasy goujons. Gravalax was mediocre: However the service was cynical and sarcastic and didn’t make for a good time.

    Sadly this restaurant has changed a lot. It now looks more like a bistro. When I went with a friend recently we didn’t stay past the first course. There was a group of people shouting swearing and making lots of noise. We mentioned this to the poor waitress and expressed that it’s not what you expect in a nice restaurant (it’s the first time I’ve ever had this experience here). She offered to move us but I had requested the halo room and we shouldn’t be the ones to move. Asking the group to keep the noise down would’ve been more productive. In the end we left just after our starters. This used to be a very gorgeous restaurant and special place for me. However you can’t provide high end dining with a bistro feeling. It sadly has lost its character and having such noise when trying to have a special meal is really unacceptable too.

    Lovely helpful staff, great food. A calm and comfortable environment to get away from the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh.

    Food was really good. Service was in line with other nice restaurants in Edinburgh. Tables were a little cramped, but that is to be expected in the busy area of the city. Would visit again
