We had the lunch menu and the food was excellent. We had both the chicken and fish main courses. The chicken was cooked to perfection and loved the risotto. The fish was also very well cooked and the tartare sauce was amazing! Would have been great with wine but the alcohol free Prosecco was very nice, becks blue was a good beer alternative. The alcohol free Cabarnet Sauvignon was very sweet to drink on its own but nice with food. Would 100% recommend this restaurant and we will definitely be returning hopefully after Edinburgh has less restrictive alcohol rules for dining

A truly incredible meal, with not a single bite I didn't enjoy. Was pleased to see they accommodated for vegetarians. Would absolutely recommend for a special occasion!

Had a lovely meal and wine pairings were fabulous. We only met the Spanish man at the front of the house and he did an excellent job.

Outstanding. Best dining experience in Edinburgh. Better than castle terrace, mark Greenaway, the kitchen. I went to 21212 about 10 years ago and was impressed with that. This restaurant impressed me more. A combination of just wow so tasty, plus 21212 was years ago. Thank you and good luck getting through lockdown. We hope you survive.
