We had lunchtime menu and found plenty of choice. Food tasty. Cullen Skink a bit heavy on potato and light on fish, but otherwise happy with our selection.

Unfortunately we found the food to be overdone. We sent back one starter, which was a poach egg which was majorly overdone with burnt toast , to then have a piece of chicken that was tougher than a pair of doc Martin’s. We sat next to the office which had a phone ringing out constantly. We asked for 2 glasses of water, which we are still waiting for. We found the food to be over priced and hit and miss to wether you got a good or bad dish. More disappointing is this was my partners birthday and first meal out since lock down and we were super looking forward to it, ultimately a high let done.

Going here was not a great experience. Started off okay and went down hill from then onwards. Food was slow to arrive and when it did my steak was cold and had to be returned to the kitchen. Staff seemed to be overwhelmed and not in control of the volume of people in the restaurant. Overall it was not the good night out I had planned for our anniversary

I didn’t like the table I was shown to as it felt like the table was placed next to the stairs as an afterthought, it was also a very small table, by the time I had water, wine & food on it it felt uncomfortable. Think if you book you should ask for a booth. I had chicken balmoral which was ok but chicken was a little dry. The waiter/waitress was very attentive & helpful which was a bonus.

Only awarded 4 stars this time as unfortunately the table we were allocated was at the door and as a delivery was in progress the door was opened and closed several times and until a member of staff helped the door banged and it was a bit draughty. Really disappointed as normally given a booth or table away from door. Will remember to ask for table away from door next time I book. Service and food was, as usual, excellent

Lovely selection of food with the fresh Scottish menu vibe.. and some interesting choices. Didn't try any of the cocktails.. but they looked good.
Efficient service and friendly staff.
Perhaps a little out of the main central city but worth a visit.

(although as an Orcadian perhaps something from Orkney on the menu.. but I know I am biased!)

First time visiting the restaurant and both thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff were friendly, welcoming, service was good, attentive without being overbearing. Food was excellent, well cooked and nicely presented. Modern restaurant with relaxed atmosphere set in the heart of the merchant city. Well worth another visit.

Nice food, good atmosphere, quick service. Only down side was the tables for 2 near the stairs felt a bit exposed. I'd book a booth the next time.

Cullen Skink soup was decidedly on the small side. Booking was restricted but there were a lot of empty tables at the 1pm slot we originally wanted.

Seafood excellent, and very generous portions. Giant scallops with black pudding deserves six stars, and the mussels were up there too. Not cheap for these things, but you’re getting quality. On the more mundane side, the haggis, neeps and tatties were pronounced very good too.

Starters and mains were of a very good standard. The desserts let it down. The sticky toffee pudding had practically no sauce and the ice cream was of a poor standard. This left us disappointed as we left and probably not go back

We have dined at the restaurant several times now and was always impressed with the food, service and overall experience. Unfortunately this time was a let down to be honest, the food in particular as my starter was Luke warm and did advise the waitress. I did eat the starter as I was so hungry as we waited so long for our order to be taken. The chicken was so dry it was hard to cut into. The 3 waiting staff appeared to run of their feet, we did feel for them as they were trying their best. Hopefully the next time we visit it will be better.

The service wasn’t great. It took a long time to be served then in between courses there was a big gap.

The waitress seemed pretty new which is of course fair as people need to learn but for the money we paid it wasn’t worth it.
