This place is fantastic, great hospitality and attention to detail. Had to wait a little while for a table but could wait at the bar or outside with a drink. Was busy but a lovely vibe and didn’t feel the least bit hurried when we...More

Space is quite small and on Wednesday night was really full, not the best if you want to catch up with friends. Wine is good indeed, prices are ok, but would not order a pate again - the driest pate I ever had!

We loved this place. Came here to see what all the fuss was about and we weren’t disappointed. You can’t book tables - just first come first served. We waited at the bar for 15 minutes or so before being sat at a table. We...More

Went here after the rugby on a very busy night in Edinburgh. The tables were all full when we arrived but was offered to sit by the bar and enjoy a drink whilst we waited. The atmosphere is so good that other diners were reluctant...More

When we arrived, we weren’t sure this would be quite the place for us as it’s compact and bijoux and was very quiet when we arrived. However, it soon filled up nicely. We really loved the whole concept. The only thing that would make it...More

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street;
even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The
