The Voyage of Buck
Menu was good but the quality and presentation of the food was poor. Staff were very friendly and pleasant, but inattentive. We often had empty glasses, cutlery was forgotten and we had to try very hard to get their attention.
I wouldn't recommend for food or for a business meal, but it's a nice pub with good beer and wine and friendly staff.
Service was great. Tom (I think that was his name) was excellent. Knowledge of the cocktails and food was spot on. He recommended drinks based on our tastes; each drink was memorable and very fitting.
The food was very good. Prices reflected a good value. None of the food was over complicated. Good simple flavours. Get the lamb.
This is the type of place you wish you had in your own city.
Had both lunch & dinner here on a few occasions- food is always excellent & the staff are friendly. Recommend to anyone in this part of town 👍
The restaurant was very noisy and it was difficult to talk. Partly due to the music level and also very noisy table beside us. The food portions were on the small side- particularly the veggie pasta option which was more a starter size and I don't have a huge appetite.
Not great value for money over all.
One of the best meals out I have had in Edinburgh - service and food were faultless
Great place for a drink. Food good too but although not a big venue acoustics made it really difficult to have a conversation. Maybe it was just where we were sitting.
My new West End Favourite. I've been for brunch and also sampled the small plates. Mick also introduced me to the cocktail list. I will be back.
Really fun. Went for my birthday, hadn't been before. Good food, interesting and well prepared. Very nice staff. Great to find somewhere different. Pretty noisy tho, so not a choice if you want to talk.
All very good - food was delicious and the staff are lovely. Only one thing when we were there it was very loud so perhaps not best for a romantic dinner.
The food was delicious and it was surprisingly affordable. I originally saw this restaurant on a best restaurants in Scotland list.
Food pretty poor, I had steak which was fine, you can't really go wrong there but my friend had the pork belly which was undercooked and not crispy on the outside as it should be. Wouldn't return for food but would for a drink, their prosecco cocktail looked nice and good for a group of girls.
Lovely dinner shame it was lukewarm
I took a friend from Aberdeen as I have been here for a drink and the staff have always been lovely and the atmosphere great. However the girl serving looked miserable and although the food was delicious (chicken) it was lukewarm, I suspect it had been sitting out for a while as it took a very long time to arrive at our table and whilst I don't mind that, when it arrives cool you realise why.
Very disappointing especially as I recommended the place. A wasted lovely dinner as well.
While the food was good and the service not bad, the room is far too noisy and it is difficult to hold a conversation. The main cause is the wooden floor with nothing to absorb sound.
Place too noisy to have a decent conversation for a catch up with more than two people. When we asked music was turned down but the chatter from other guests echoes throughout the place. Food and service were good but the noise level impacted on our evening out.
We enjoyed the food, but found the noise level a bit tiring. Will try again, but not on a Friday evening
Really good. Will definitely be back. Sometimes the restaurant feels a bit short staffed which must be stressful for the people who work there.
