I had a meal here with three friends. The food is tasty and well cooked, and the menu is varied. It’s a very small place, which adds to the lovely ethos. Great meal and good value.

Really nice hidden gem in astonishing North Queensferry, the food is 5* with great selection and professional service. Please, please, please get a proper coffee machine and hire someone who's able to use it. After that quality of food the "coffee" was a terrible disappointment.More

Very small and cozy restaurant. Excellent food and service. Choice between a full meal but also a somewhat smaller alternative for a bit lower price. This was my choice and with 2 courses this was absolutely enough! Highly recommend a visit!
