We loved the relaxed feel of this place, friendly knowledgeable staff, attentive but not overbearing– just like being back in France. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The Mediterranean fish soup was amazing and the chickpea pancakes with butternut squash was a delicious revelation. The desserts where to die fur and the recommendation on matching dessert wines to the dishes spot on! The wines were delicious and affordable." More

We thoroughly enjoyed it. It was expensive but worth it. The food was excellent, the ambience and decor of the restaurant outstanding and the waiting staff really attentive without being overly fussy. We had the secret tasting menu with accompanying wine. Each dish was better than the last and was accompanied by some really unusual wines. Three and a half hours of food and wine heaven. My only slight disappointment was that I made a schoolboy error when paying the bill. I only realised afterwards that the bill included a service charge and, so at the time, left a fairly obvious generous tip. I might have expected the waitress to confirm that I wanted to leave a tip. Nevertheless, a schoolboy error and it won’t stop us from going back. In fact planning on taking our Gourmet Club buddies there. More

Global, International | Old Town, Edinburgh

Very good two course meal (including a glass of house wine) from a set menu for £15. Good choice on menu and a nice touch to have a jug of water on the table when we arrived. For some reason our main course took a while to come with a number of later diners served before us. Not a major problem - we were on holiday - but perhaps staff should have noticed sooner. Overall though we enjoyed the meal very much. More
