Was a brilliant meal. Lovely food and wine. Only thing, and it sounds ridiculous, but the crackers for the cheese could’ve been better.

When we arrived we were greeted warmly by the manager. We exchanged a bit of friendly banter with him as he showed us to our table in the window. Our waiter Lukoss was very helpful and charming with a good sense of humour.
We enjoyed a superb lunch from the set lunch menu 2 courses £12 or 3 courses £15. The food was freshly cooked and delicious. The portion sizes were generous too. All in all we had an excellent meal for 3 with superb service which was also great value for the money.
We will definitely be back again.

Food was lovely. Dined with three friends and we all had different meals and all great. I had fish and chips which were lovely and portion not too massive. Chips were amazing! Others had chicken supreme, veggie haggis and steak pie. Everyone felt food was wonderful. Had side order of onion rings which weren’t great and at £4.50, I felt a bit expensive. Daniel, our waiter (and all other staff) was really nice and friendly; however following initial ordering, wasn’t as attentive so found ourselves having to call for service to get additional drinks etc. That aside, overall experience was a good one and we would definitely return.

Too many tables crammed into such a small space. We had a table in the middle of a very busy room and were denied when we requested to swap tables. We constantly had people pushing past us, bumping us during our meal. Not very enjoyable experience although the food was very good. We felt rushed through dinner and drinks.

We were looking forward to this dinner, and the food was good but the attitude that we had from our waiter made it less than pleasant. We had never been to this restaurant before, it was our first night in Edinburgh, but we have traveled for years and I have never been told by a waiter that I had to order everything at once, I could not order a drink and an appetizer and then continue to look at the menu and decide on a main course in while we were waiting for our starters. He literally refused to take our order until we had decided on our entire meal. I had made this reservation a week prior, we didn't just walk in and decide we were going to take up a table ( a small two top in the middle of the room, not a great table anyway) so he continued his crappy attitude throughout our meal, we were very disappointed. Needless to say we went elsewhere for dessert and after dinner drinks. His name was Lukas. Hope he treats you better than he did us.

3rd visit and still very good....Good food , great friendly service , sat us in the corner which was just right for what we wanted...and kept interruptions to a minimum ....only challenge was we needed to leave table after 2hrs...to be fair we were informed when we arrived...we were engrossed in conversation and lost all track of time...we will definitely be back!
