Under current restricted circumstances our lunch was excellent. Service was friendly and good, as always.
Spectacular dining experience in every way. Had the lunch menu - delicious
Very helpful staff! I am dairy free and was catered to very well. Thank you
Really delicious lunch, I’ve already recommended to my friends and family as it was really excellent all round.
Absolutely fantastic food and service at Purslane. The 7 course tasting menu was a delight with every dish a unique and flavourful experience. Thank you all, we will be back!
Excellent food in a relaxing atmosphere. This is my third visit. I will definitely be going back.
Delicious fine dining without the formal awkwardness!
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
Spent a lovely afternoon with my wife for her Birthday lunch. Looking forward to returning again very soon. The service and food was tremendous.
Excellent, very carefully prepared food in a relaxed and welcoming setting. Amazing value for money.
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!
Even in strange times, we felt incredibly safe and well looked after. Enjoyed the tasting menu with paired wines! A total joy and will visit again
Food was absolutely beautiful really nice size portions , lovely waiter who was professional friendly and helpful. We had such a lovely afternoon and even with all the covid restrictions we had the best time
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.
Fantastic food with carefully thought out wine accompaniments. When next in Edinburgh we will be sure to visit.
Couldn't fault anything, Food was amazing and the chef and staff great.
We really enjoyed the whole evening. Excellent food, the wine pairing was great and the two chaps serving were so so friendly. We will be back.
Can’t fault it. Absolutely delicious tasting menu and a very special feel.
Fantastic food and service, not a bad course in there.
Superb food with excellent service and good knowledge of the food and wine from the 2 waiters
As usual excellent meal. Food is tremendous with great service. Fantastic value for money!
Wine measures could have been a touch more generous but food was great, rib of beef cooked perfectly.
Great little restaurant and amazing food. Service was superb. We had the 5 course tasting menu and thoroughly recommend it.
Absolutely delicious from start to finish, thank you.
