Great quality food and drink, a little expensive but worth the money. Brilliant atmosphere, maybe needs a bit of outside music and full rain coverage. Friendly and very fast service

Food was pretty good. However service wasn’t the best. We found the staff to be quite unresponsive. We were seated at a poor table, we asked for it to be changed but were given an excuse that didn’t make any sense to us, which was irritating and negatively impacted our time in the restaurant.

Very disapointing starter and confused service from the staff. Apparent lack of product knowledge from the 3 or 4 diferent people who served us - we were constantly interrupted having to repeat ourselves all the time and questions asked were left unanswered.

I love this place! Was really struggling to find good places for drinks in Edin and I’m so glad this popped up. All the cocktails were lovely and the service was amazing. Sadly didn’t get food but next time I’m here I definitely will because it looked delicious. Can’t wait to come back!

Bar staff were so lovely and friendly, food was amazing and such a cozy little atmosphere. An amazing outdoor set up considering covid restrictions and also taking into consideration the Scottish weather - we were warm and dry considering the rainfall! Will hopefully return next time we are in Edinburgh😁

Service was amazing- every staff member was smiling and it was so nice not to have to order through an app!! Human interaction was just so much nicer. First time out with some other Mums after having babies so it was a genuinely lovely experience. Will 100% be returning again.

Great friendly and helpful service from the staff. And brilliant venue with the heaters on the outdoor tables... I was fearing the worst when it was raining all day, but it was such a comfortable environment.

We booked the Devil’s Advocate for a special occasion and we were absolutely delighted with the whole experience. From a brilliant atmosphere, excellent food and drink, but also the most friendly and helpful staff it was fantastic. The full covered outdoor seating, complete with fantastic heaters made it such an enjoyable experience. Thank you so much to the team.
