    Three friends meeting after some time were able to enjoy a relaxing atmosphere, where we were very well looked after enjoying a delicious lunch. We made an error calculating our bill as a result overpaid. This was quickly spotted and discovered by one of the charming waitresses, sadly I don't recall her name. Outstanding vigilance, honesty and customer care. Love the design and artwork, elegantly atmospheric.

    Fabulous as always. Knit picking really here but I'd prefer a wee bit more balance towards savoury in the offerings. I have a sweet tooth but with the scones initially ( fab scones incidentally) I think I'd prefer a 4th savoury offering in the stack.

    Food was good, but service was poor. We had to call the waiter to take our food order. When questioned about what came with one of the main meals he didn’t know and referred us back to the menu. At the end of the night we had to ask twice for the bill and then two lots of service charges were added to it. This was removed after we questioned it but I wonder how many people actually check their bills properly before paying. I still believe service charge should be at the discretion of the dinners and not an automatic add on, after all how certain can we be that the money is being given to the waitress or waiter??

    Our waitress was Anna from Barcelona, and was a happy helpful and chatty wee soul. She was efficient and smiley and had a couple of minutes to have a quick conversation. An asset to the restaurant for sure. Had a gorgeous meal consisting of gin cured salmon and both had the venison haunch, delicious. We shared the cheese and oatcakes. A beautiful dining room and friendly staff. Overall it’s 5 stars from us.

    Quite expensive but you do get a lot to eat. Would be better to have less desserts and only one scone which could help to reduce the cost. The tea should not be served until the food has arrived as ours went cold whilst waiting. The price of Prosecco @ £42 a bottle is a bit excessive. Overall nice afternoon but I’ve had better for cheaper.

    Fabulous location and really good, very pleasant service. Food overall was really delicious and everyone was really happy with the lunch menu. We were a large party so had the central round table which was good but maybe we were a bit noisy for other diners. The staff happily took care of the birthday cake and brought it out at the appropriate time

    Food and service were brilliant, honestly couldn't find a fault. The portion sizes were also very generous compared to other higher end restaurants I’ve tried in Edinburgh. The smoked mackerel pate and chicken dish were particularly noteworthy. The staff were very attentive and accommodating, I had advised we were visiting for a birthday and we were seated right at the window with a view over princes street and revived a free birthday dessert with candles. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back.

    The table had not been wiped clear - the surface looked smudged. The main courses were adequate - my companion had the venison, which was OK. My lentil tikka masala was tepid. The dessert of whisky rum baba had no discernible whisky taste, and was not particularly warm. The whole experience was OK, where it had been much better on a previous visit.

    Accidentally ordered lunch menu for celebration instead of afternoon tea. Zero empathy or attempt to work around the issue offered by the staff, so we proceeded with lunch. Waited for 1 hour until lunch was served, we had to continuously ask for service there was no attention provided by staff , it felt very much like we were causing issues when asking for a drink or an update on or food. Overall would not recommend.
