Excellent food as always. Gorgeous flavours and wonderfully presented. Lunch set menu is really good value. Have reccommended this restaurant to many people already!
Neighbourhood restaurant offering very good food,nice atmosphere,responsive service and excellent value for your money...would recommend!
great value lunch
This is the third time we have dined here at this lovely restaurant and we really enjoyed it again. The menu changes regularly so there is always a good choice of seasonal produce. It has lovely friendly staff with good service and a nice atmosphere.
First visit was very impressed with the quality of food . The fish main was exceptional
Food lovely, pre-theatre deal great value for money. Three perfectly sized portions so not overly full Appreciated that our ‘gluten-free’ free could eat same as us with minor variations rather than need chose a very limited number of options.
Pre theatre menu is excellent value for money. Food was delicious and service very efficient without being intrusive. Will recommend and also return.
The bone marrow was to die for.
Top quality lunch at very reasonable prices with excellent service - nothing not to like! Would highly recommend.
Had not been for a while, and not sure why not, as always a very enjoyable dining experience, thanks and keep it up
Dropped in for lunch once with in-laws. Loved it, so good we came back without them! Evening meal was superb and top value too. A real eye opener to discover such a good small independent neighbourhood bistro like this. Thank-you Bia. More power to your elbow.
Fantastic food, great presentation, attentive but not intrusive service, wine list is carefully thought out and very reasonable. A lovely atmosphere. Highly recommend. Sláinte!
Fantastic meal as always.The smoked roe deer starter was incredible.I doubted the anchovy aioli but I was wrong.It made the dish.Front of house service was excellent but we miss Fiona.Has she left? Look forward to seeing you soon. All the best. Graham
Delicious food, delightful people. A lovely evening, thank you!
great location interesting menu with good choice nice ambience pleasant and relaxing decor
Excellent as always - great night out! On previous visits I have always had fish. This time I ate lamb- and wonder why I waited this long.
Great food and great service. Lovely time!
Excellent food and drink at quite reasonable prices with great service. The upper floor of the restaurant can be a little noisy when it is busy and it can be a little chilly when people are coming and going if sat near to the door.
Thank you - another excellent meal and outstanding customer service! Prof Maura Sheehan, Merchiston Avenue
Love the food. Hard to understand waiter; a bit noisy in room.
A great little place... delicious food in a really friendly and pleasant setting. The lamb rump in particular was fantastic! We’ll be back!
Was disappointed to be seated in awful table at the back appeared to be under the stairs. Had booked well in advance, however when we asked to be moved to a table for 2 which was vacant nearby . It was not a problem.. otherwise everything perfect
Cheeseboard was a particular highlight- a lovely intimate environment with delicious food
