We both have high standards of fish & chips with me being Australian and us both living in NZ for a number of... More

My atmospheric ambiance experience felt I could have been eating anywhere in the world. The restaurant was not busy on the Monday evening when we visited but I am sure they must get a lot of return visits during all the week. Table setting and presentation was well set out and the tables are not crushed. Absolutely fresh crispy batter... More

We called in here for dinner during our stay in Edinburgh. The takeaway section was doing good business, but we wanted to dine in. The dining area is really well laid out and finished more like a pizza restaurant than a chippy. This a good thing though and not a complaint. There is an Italian flavour to the place and... More
