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!

First time for me and my friend here and we were not disappointed! A very welcoming greeting, and an excellent lunch. I thought the Whisky Fish and chips was superb - fish was so good. We had a very friendly and chatty waitress (from New Zealand) who made our dining experience just lovely! Will certainly be back.

Fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed the Introduction to Whisky and will be visiting again during our next trip to Edinburgh.

Meal was beautiful and service was fast & friendly. Great range of meals and lots of wonderful whiskeys to choose from.

The gentleman on the shop desk and the waitresses in the restaurant are extremely knowledgable and more than happy to share their wisdom. Would recommend this place for those guys alone.

Busy, attentive maitre-de. Shown to the best table as far as we could see in a cosy den at the back of the restaurant.
Uninspiring menu, but that was of no matter. Steak & ale pie, piping hot & tasty.
Haddock & chips with truffle oil & Parmesan utterly delicious. Batter crispy, chips crispy, what’s not to like. Washed down by 7 Girraffes IPA. This is how plain fair should be served. Recommended.
