Thank you for a great meal. Its excellent that you offer the full menu for lunch as well as a lunch menu. We have eaten at some great restaurants this year and yours is close to being the best.

My partner was very delighted with the presentation, food, cake, his candle and birthday message and the exclusive table seating. You really did make his Birthday Special. Thank you. Saloni

Brilliant food. The main course was as tasty as the starter which isn't always the case in restaurants. Semifreddo dessert was delicious. Innovative food with great attention to detail. Attentive but not intrusive service.

Thanks for a great night to finish off our weekend in Edinburgh. Our seven-course tasting menu was absolutely marvellous, and your blend of laid-back informal atmosphere and fine dining fare was exactly what we wanted.

Had a magical evening of amazing food and wine, with friendly professional service at Purslane. We had the 7 course tasting menu with matching premium wines. Every course was special. Highlights for me were the pigeon paired with Barolo, and the lamb paired with Crossbarn Cabernet Sauvignon. My partner loved the more dessert side of the menu, but we both agreed it was all amazing.

I've no idea how this small(ish) restaurant has remained hidden in plain sight for so long. The taster menu with paired wines is excellent value for money and the staff were very enthusiastic with both the food and the wine. Will definitely be back, can't say whether it will be a la carte or taster menu but either way I know we'll not be disappointed!

Exceptional evening of dining at Purslane. Exceeded our highest expectations (and the previous reviews by others) in every way. The chef is innovative and truly masterful at his craft. Excellent wines and outstanding service. Go!
