It was the first time we had visited but won’t be the last. Lovely restaurant with friendly staff and very good service. Food was excellent with very good flavours. We both had haggis starter followed by lamb and chicken and then chocolate desert. We were also given both a glass of bubbly for my wife’s birthday , nice touch . More

We all remembered what we had the last time we ate there and some of us had the same thing again. Most popular was the steak tartare starter and the most popular dessert was the hot soufflé - yum! The fish, particularly the cod, was cooked to perfection. Service was excellent and attentive and the final bill was not a shocker. The Galvin brothers have a good track record. We have enjoyed their food in London too. Excellent food, excellent value. More

Nepalese | Old Town, Edinburgh

Booked online but phoned ahead before arrival to alter the time, which was accommodated without issue. The food was excellent with a notably extensive menu of vegetarian dishes as well as meat. It also has a split menu between Nepalese and Indian, allowing the opportunity to try new things while having plenty of old favorites to fall back on. Trying the Nepalese dishes for the first time was a revelation; very fresh ingredients and interesting flavours. Highly recommended. More

Service was very good, we were very early in evening therefore not much atmosphere as we were only ones in restaurant, the food is good and well worth a visit, compared to top restaurants in Washington DC where I live I would say it could make the top 50 list in the Washingtonian.....the menu is good, only missing some unique, modern and interesting items, I'm glad we went and had a very enjoyable evening thanks to the great staff.....

Modern decor highlights the very contemporary menu. Each course was presented beautifully and tasted even better that it looked. Our server was attentive but unobtrusive. Small wine list with very reasonable pricing. We loved it! More

Modern European | Old Town, Edinburgh

I had both afternoon tea and dinner here within a week. Both were excellent value, but dinner in particular was a revelation - an innovative and interesting matching of ingredients, and a take on some classic dishes that proved to be as delicious as they promised... My navarin of mutton was both traditional and delicious. The service was provided by an excellent young and very helpful and knowledgeable team. They offered a warm welcome too. And the wine list... Extensive, thoughtful and with a good range of wines by the glass. Our Chateau Musar 1999 was presented in superb condition, and was good value at £70... Well, it was a celebration dinner, so why not. They have excellent wines for far less too. We loved the room, the food, the whole experience. A really good find in a City with many great restaurants. Looking forward to my next visit. More
