    We had never been to Elgin before and chose to book at the restaurant by chance. We loved it and booked again for the following evening.

    My partner and I dined here for his 28th birthday. We were seated promptly and our server got us our drinks quickly. We ordered a starter to share and a main meal each. The food was lovely, we shared the haggis bon bons from one plate (which was a little tricky), I had fish and chips and the birthday boy had a burger. The restaurant got busier towards 8pm as more reservations came, which made the restaurant louder, but not uncomfortable. The servers were attentive and offered us more drinks, desert etc. and over all it was a great evening. We were asked for our table back around 8:20pm, which I was disappointed at as I’d booked the table for 2 hours as it was a birthday meal. Towards the end we felt rushed and had to get the bill and leave - but we would have had another round of cocktails given the chance. They cannot accept tips via card so make sure to bring some cash along too!

    Birthday lunch with my sisters The food was very good but service not so good as maybe a shortage of staff. After our main course waited a while but no one came back to offer us a dessert or coffee so we left and went to another place for coffee and also had a bottle of wine .

    Myself and my partner ordered the burger and monkfish. The monkfish dish was borderline inedible, I have honestly never experienced myself struggling so much to eat something purely because I didn't want to waste money! The monkfish was like a piece of unseasoned, boiled fish. The risotto itself was over cooked to the point there was liquid sitting at the bottom. The beef burger was genuinely one of the worst burgers I've ever had. I feel so rude writing that but I think it is important that you know. There was no seasoning, it was completely bland and the bacon was pretty much raw. It's incredibly disappointing because I hyped your restaurant up so much to my partner based on my expectations from Instagram and a previous meal. In summary, we were really looking forward to a meal out at your restaurant. We were more than willing to pay £24 for a single dish however have left bitterly disappointed with the terrible standard of food served.
