I was looking forward to a nice meal but it was even better than my expectations! Subtle flavours with perfect wine pairings. The wine list is a bit special with wines from lesser known countries so do ask the personnel for help, they really know their trade and products. I had lamb sweetbreads for starters and haddock for main course. The only downside was I was traveling alone and was just thinking of my friends who would have appreciated it as much.

Outstanding is truly the only word that can describe our experience. With exceptional food, a our medley of flavours the only aspect that can rival the food is the phenomenal service at every turn. Cosy restaurant nothing too fancy that allows one to feel right at home. Personal interactions with the staff make the night memorable, and the food was great value for the variety of choice and flavours.

Quality of the food and service was great, was extremely disappointed with the portion of the starter. All three of us ordered Scallops at £9.50 per head, and we all received one Scallop, bit cheeky/pricey for one!

The quality of flavours of the food was excellent, the Roe Deer was exquisite......

Service was second to none, and we were greeted warmly on arrival, and were looked after well throughout our meal. All of the staff were very friendly and attentive.

The food was delicious, as was the wine. Very nicely decorated interiors. A gem if you’re ever visiting Edinburgh with your other half.

Very much enjoyed the evening. We found the two fish main dishes , halibut and hake very salty. Perhaps due to the sea vegetables. It would have been nice to have had a petit fours with th coffee.

Excellent food, well thought out dishes using quality ingredients. The deer although ordered rare as recommended unfortunately came out medium well, but I am not picky so accepted it anyway. The brussels sprouts served with lamb were a little hard and bitter. It was all still very delicious. Slight delay on dessert which was made up for by offering a complementary drink.

First visit to F&C with my company director, I took a bit of a gamble and followed the online reviews rather than a recommendation from family or friends. I wanted to take my director to a restaurant that served Scottish food as he travels internationally. We weren't disappointed. The service was superb, the chap at the front of house was excellent. Though the menu is not too expansive everything on offer looked appealing so it was difficult to choose. We had 3 courses and each course was unique and delicious. I don't think I've ever tasted better scallops. I didn't think the tab was too bad considering we ordered a decent bottle of wine. The space and ambience is quite intimate, in our case this afforded the opportunity to have a good chat about business. Will probably get my husband to take me next time though....

Surprise for my husband, booked after reading other reviews and so glad i picked this restaurant. It had a lovely vibe as soon as you walked through the door. Pleasant and helpful staff, not constantly hovering over you but there if you needed anything. We had 3 courses and each one was outstanding. Would recommend to anyone visiting Edinburgh and wanting a special evening of incredible food and large selection of drinks.
