Excellent food - the mussels were to die for and steak done perfectly. Portions were generous and very reasonably priced. I had arrived with a small appetite but couldn't resist a starter and main when looking at the menu, and the food was so good...More

Hoping for a peaceful lunch in the sunshine. No problem getting a table, and after several minutes a menu and tap water but thereafter all very slow indeed. 15 minutes and on the point of leaving before catching a waiter's eye and finally order. Salmon...More

Cute in appearance and the food was ok but the staff are very arrogant. Want you in and out quickly, can't do this, can't do that, can't sit there. Not worth it. Nice setting though but opt for something more Scottish. Nothing about it is...More

Went here early supper and they very helpfully squeezed us in before the next booking. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very limited gluten free options but what I had was good

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
