We waited 25 mins to get a drink, we were forgotten about, when we chased we were still forgotten about again. The main course was also late and we ordered the steaks they didn’t mention there would be no sides at all, normally other restaurants would highlight this if this was the case. Have been before and service was great but this was pretty bad and will take a lot for me to come back

Food was really good, small plates, so able to taste a variety of dishes. Reasonably priced.
The service was a bit slow and we had to ask several times for drinks and water. Waiter was friendly and very helpful in explaining the menu.

Poor from start to finish. I booked a table for 9 people for a family lunch before we headed to the rugby at Murrayfield. On arrival we were told they had no details of our booking, but they would get a table for us in 10 mins. We waited at the bar and didn’t get served for 20mins, and finally another 20 mins later we got our table. Again service was slow and we weren’t served our food for over an hour after we sat down. To finally get our meal 1hour 50mins from arriving is pathetic, especially as we had 2 young children as part of our group, and no real offer of an apology or compensation. Thankfully the food was good once it arrived but we had to rush as we had to leave. It really applies what should have been a fun and relaxed family lunch, it just upset and embarrassed me as I was in charge of making a booking for me and my family.

In Edinburgh for the rugby. Very impressed with building and interior decoration. Spacious and easy to find and not too noisy. Food was excellent, basically tapas but not allowed to say it is tapas! Only downside was not enough staff so everything took a long time to arrive. Staff were very friendly and apologetic but how difficult can it be?? Overall I would certainly go again and hope they had sorted out their staff problems.

If I wanted to eat in a disco I would have booked one. It should be made clear what this place is like of an evening. I was the only one eating amongst a party of party goers and felt totally uncomfortable and out of place

Went on a Thursday evening and had the ‘Steak Frites’ deal - any cut of steak with chips, choice of sauce and a glass of house wine for £12.50! Amazing food and value. The service was warm and friendly without being imposing. Will definitely return!

Good food, good service. Music so loud it hard to hear my guest speak. Very lively and better suited to larger groups.

One word - disappointing. I was unsure about booking here due to some of the reviews and should have followed my instinct. There were not many diners on a Thursday night in the restaurant and our server was very attentive to begin the evening, but things went downhill. The atmosphere is strange, more like a nightclub, and the food was just ok. 3 of us wanted the chicken on the preset menu, but they were sold out and did not make another substitution. Also, we waited quite awhile for our check and then the bill was incorrect, which then took too long to sort out. Too many other options in the area, so doubt we will return.

After Traveling 20 minuets to get to the restaurant with a reservation we were turned away at the door because we had a 12 year old. I understand rules but it should be plainly explained that you can not serve dinner after a certain hour when you have a reservation and a young person in your group. This should be done before you spend the time and money to arrive.

The food was exceedingly good, but the place was quite loud - we were given a more quiet spot in the back - but then the music speaker was turned on so ..

Service was also quite good!
