We had a lovely lunch here. Beautifully presented and great value for money. The warm welcome we received from Jordan the manager made the whole experience even more enjoyable.

Came for a pre-theatre meal. Service, quality were outstanding will definitely be back. Staff were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble.

Noua avons diné à 8 personnes un samedi soir et avons passé une excellente soirée dans ce restaurant. Les produits sont frais et les plats savoureux. Ambiance décontractée et service très agréable. Je recommande The Apartment.

Absolutely could not fault quality of food or service. Only criticism was that if was a chilly day outdoors and the restaurant would have been nicer if it had been a little warmer. I noticed another diner had her coat round her shoulders so realised it wasn’t just me feeling cold.

It was a very tasty lunch we had at the Apartment. The flat iron steak was succulent, with great flavour, the waitress enthusiastic and helpful and the restaurant was a conducive and relaxing place to lunch.

The food was nice (chicken skewers and pineapple crumble), but the service was a bit disorganised. We had 3 separate waitresses who kept coming over and asking our drinks/food orders Atmosphere was nice and cocktail selection good

Received a recommendation from a friend to try this restaurant and were not disappointed. The staff offered to move our table as there was a large party close to us which provided a much better situation for our meal. Staff were very helpful and our meals were delivered in an appropriate time. Happy to recommend to others and likely to return.

Excellent food and personal friendly service. Loved the haggis croquettes. Shame it was a wet, windy Wednesday night and not many people were out and about.

Great tasty skewers - 1 sole waiter that served all tables - very impressive. Wednesday night so not too busy but still had some atmosphere. Will definately return

The food was amazing, especially the fish broth. We discovered a wonderful Pinot Gris Vintrigue' which was new to us'. There seemed to be a lack of resource waiting tables on the night but their cheerfulness of the staff and the quality of food made up for it.

The lack of atmosphere was simply,y because it was so quiet for a Saturday lunchtime, perhaps due to poor weather
