Great location, had a window seat which was fantastic! We weren’t rushed at alll, only thing was we all had salads and didn’t think they were great value for money. Desserts were too expensive also we felt.

Haggis spring rolls w plum sauce was excellent. Main dishes were good but not amazing. The dessert however, sticky toffee pudding, was amazing. Best we had in Scotland or England. Definite recommend.

I wrote a more extensive review today on TripAdvisor. Went there last night at 9 p.m. for a quick dinner service was poor or drinks took too long and we didn't stay for dinner. And after to eat at Angels and bagpipes instead which was fabulous!

Great place, very personalised, and friendly atmosphere! The food was amazing especially the Lamb dish! The service was spot on giving us time in between courses to enjoy the whole experience! Would definitely like to return to try some other dishes on offer! Overall a great find!

Excellent experience. I will remember the braised Pershire lamb shoulder for the rest of my days. Came with a family of 4, from New York City. Restaurant had a relaxed vibe but also sophisticated. All of our dishes were wonderful as well as my Smoky Old Fashion. Would recommend and go again if ever I am in Edinburgh.

It was delightful!!! We went for dinner for our 1st year anniversary and it didn’t disappoint. When the coffees came out slow because the machine wasn’t working well, they gave them to us free. Great service. Amazing food.

Food was generally very salty and over cooked. Of particular poor quality was the Haggis, macaroni cheese bake, and chicken salad. Mushroom soup was good

We had a reservation for two and ran into a friend on our way there. They were able to add him to our table which was wonderful. At one point I did hear a little crash behind me with a little mishap. The next thing I realized the waiter was cleaning my jacket. I was very impressed that he jumped right on it and it came through with minimal damage. Naturally they took care of everything and we enjoyed a wonderful dinner. Please try the lamb cigars!

The veggie haggis was not bad, not as good as the reviews. A wee bit spicier would have been good. Service was excellent.

It was the perfect place to meet up with friends for a spot of lunch. We had a lovely window seat, looking out over Princes Street. The food was very tasty (I had the fish and chips) ! We were looked after by a very efficient young man, who even took time to chat to us. It was very handy for the station, which one of my friends was using.
