My wife and I had the seven course tasting menu which was excellent. Not a big fan of chocolate desserts but that is a personal thing.

As `vulnerable` clients i.e. over 70, we could not have chosen a better place for our last public outing.Everything about the evening was excellent. Hopefully we will meet up again in the not too distant future

Wonderful food and wine pairings. The gentlemen serving us were fantastic and the food and wine knowledge was amazing. A perfect night. The only thing is that because it was so good, it spoilt our next night out where the food and atmosphere paled in comparison! We will most definitely come back on our next trip to Edinburgh and will tell all our friends to go as well.

Sin duda uno de los mejores restaurantes de Edimburgo. Pedimos el menú degustación de 7 platos y fue todo un acierto. La comida exquisita y la atención recibida por parte de los chicos es maravillosa. Es un sitio pequeño, muy acogedor que te hace sentir como en casa. Recomendable 100%!!

Was here for my boyfriend's birthday! we went for a 7 course meal + wines. The food was fantastic! You need to make sure that you 'eat less' in your previous meal in order to be able to enjoy the food at purslane haha. Ambience was ok, cozy and cute. Hospitality was amazing! The people who work there were so nice :)

3rd visit to Purslane. And we will definitely be back. Amazing food. Lovely staff. If I had one negative it would be the size of the gents toilet. Apparently it's a bit wee.
