                      Food was superb as it always is- service could have been sharoer and our drinks were a little on the warm side - aperitif could have done with more ice and bottle of Chablis had to be decanted and put on ice to cool it down ... surely at a restaurant of this calibre white wine should be cold?

                      Amazing experience. Will definately repeat. We went for the a la carte menu and the food was outstanding both in taste and quality. The staff were attentive and knowlegable, helping us choose. Special thanks to our Spanish wine waiter!

                      The vegetarian tasting menu was a delectable culinary experience. It was well paced, extremely well crafted, and just delicious. Each dish was creative and sophisticated without being pretentious. Service was attentive, the dining room nicely decorated, and the final bill reasonable. I wouldn't hesitate to return on our next visit to Edinburgh.

                      The service was wonderful and the food was delicious. Everything is well done, from the river front to the coat hanging to the sweet birthday card on the table along with a treat at the end of the meal since this was an outing for my birthday. They absolutely deserve the Michelin Star as the chef creates tasty, original dishes with a classic French twist.

                      Not a hint of Valentines night in the restaurant or menu on 14th February which was disappointing. Food colourful and flavorsome, although a little rich which left us feeling `full`. The fish seemed slightly overcooked in both our main dishes although the restaurant was busy and i assume Chef had his hands full. Service was very good, staff 1st class although you do pay for it.

                      Service was excellent & the food was ver good on some dishes. Extremely disappointed with the beef being cooked in a water bath. Looked & felt like I was eating human flesh !!!

                      A little treat with my wife. The food, the service, the setting - all fantastic. The flavours are stunning and the plates elegant. We had the lunch menu which is excellent value. We will be back for sure!

                      A very relaxing lunch full of surprises in tastes and creative dishes. The table service was excellent and does credit to the well managed restaurant. I hope to be back soon.

                      We had just 1.5 hours for our dinner because of the Fringe and the restaurant staff took our order before our arrival and made sure that we had an amazing meal and left on time for the play.

                      Spur of the moment booking as we were in Edinburgh on business. Great decision! Friendly and efficient waiters, a great choice of four menus, knowledgeable sommelier. Great food, we took the 4 course a la Carte menu and enjoyed Foie gras, scallops, turbot, ceviche of Halibut, rose veal tartare and angus beef, a superb cheese board and incredible chocolate desert. Well worth the visit and I would recommend to anyone who loves good food.

                      The serving staff were lovely, attentive, friendly. We ordered the set lunch but overall the amuse bouche was the most amazing thing we ate, which was quite disappointing. Could do with some more verve in the ingredients!
