Our waiter Sebastian was first class. Very attentive to our needs when required. The food was excellent, though the wine was over-priced, even taking into account the SNPs price hike, though it shouldn't have affected a Multipulciano. At £27 too much.

We havent been for years, but the first floor bar is a great addition. We took Dutch friends who tasted haggis for the first time and what better way to start than the Cannonballs...!

Genuinely could not fault anything. Service, atmosphere, food were all second to none which is rare these days. We probably had the best table with view of the castle which was beautiful. I liked the owner coming round and chatting to everyone and being genuinely friendly. The waiters and bar staff were all exceptional too. Definetly coming back!

Thought the food was very good ... had the cannonballs (Haggis) and venison haunch. We ordered a bottle of red and a bottle of white and the white took too long to get to the table. One of our party had ordered white to go with her starter so we were sat waiting for it. Had a similar problem at you sister restaurant on George street where red wine arrived when we nearly finished our main course. Setting is really lovely and we would definitely come back.

Nothing but praise - excellent setting, service and food for my party of nine all of whom (apart from myself) were from out of town. Thank you for providing the right mood and atmosphere for a most enjoyable evening.

Excellent food and service in an atmospheric restaurant. I have never been disappointed on any of my visits. On my recent visit to celebrate my wife’s birthday, we were particularly well looked after by our server, Emma.

We had a beautiful view of the Castle. However the Heavy jazz music was too extreme for an almost empty Restaurant.

Service was rather slow , about 40 mins before we were shown to our table. Starters were mixed up and not brought out at the same time. Otherwise fine.

The members of staff were excellent - friendly, knowledgeable and struck just the right note. We will definitely be back. The restaurant and bar are beautifully located in the old Victorian Castle Hill School with wonderful views towards the Castle esplanade and down the High Street.
