    In Edinburgh’s elite tier for somewhere to go as a group or as a couple. Enough food and drink to sink a ship and we spent £45 a head, couldn’t ask for anywhere better

    Really good experience at Fava, most of the food was truly excellent, just one dish (mussels) was a bit colder than it should be. The sea bream and sea bass were superb, as was the lamb kleftiko. We had Greek wines, both very quaffable indeed. Service was efficient and friendly. Busy restaurant but did not feel rushed. Loved it, will return, highly recommended

    Tried a walk in once before and the staff were flabbergasted that we did not make a booking. Then had to join this opentable in order to book. Phew! A lot of fuss to get in. The ambience is lovely. The food ended up being a aerate which was a let down after the build up.

    The food, service and restaurant ambience was excellent. Our experience was let down by the automatic application of a 'voluntary' service charge to the bill. Restaurants should not place customers in the awkward situation of having to ask to remove the 'voluntary' charge to apply their own preferred service tip.
