    That was our 2nd visit. We suggest signage on the door to close door well as we got a blast of cold air constantly. Food was delish and we were seated earlier than our reservation!!! Yeah!

    Our server Rory was topnotch, from the moment we arrived until we left. The food is excellent and if you are brave enough to tackle the hot sauces they have on offer then go ahead. A fine range of beers and cocktails are available. My only tiny gripe is the venue size is feels a bit cramped to me. Maybe Buck's Bar owners could find a bigger place, but as I said it's my only moan. One of the best places to eat in Edinburgh. Please note it is advisable to book a table in advance, to avoid disappointment. Finally, have the Mothership on the menu. It may well floor you but it is superb.

    The food was lovely and we had a nice table by the window. The service was relaxed which was just what we wanted. There was no rush and they were there when we wanted anything. Even when busy it’s not too noisy as the tables are well spaced out. Perfect for catching up with friends over a long lunch.

    We loved the wide range of menu offerings and drinks. The atmosphere was fantastic - just bummed it was pouring and we couldn’t see the terrace! The food was terrific - our only complaint was that the kitchen seemed to be very backed up and it wasn’t during lunch rush time. But again, bc it was raining so we weren’t in a rush to go back out in the weather. The staff was lovely and so friendly. We 100% would come back and recommend our state-side friends to come!
