I’d love to give a good review but I booked for a 40th birthday lunch online only to arrive and it all be locked up. You should probably update your booking system.
After having to rearrange our visit due to being rained off the terrace our second visit inside was more successful and we enjoyed a few cocktails. Menu is limited but we enjoyed a few drinks nonetheless - staff attentive and friendly
Very nice place to spend lunch or dinner with family and friends. Good atmosphere decent food and perfect cocktails. Service was perfect with good attitude.
Food was absolutely delicious, especially the vegetarian options (even my meat eating friend loved them). Can’t believe I’ve never been before on trips to Edinburgh. Tucked away down the steps like a special secret we loved everything from the interior, to the service to the food and very affordable.
Brilliant drinks and service as always.
Amazing service. Amazing vibe. 10/10
Friendly service and such fresh food combinations! Can’t wait to come back again!!
I always enjoy my times here - never had a bad experience. Love the atmosphere. Very special.
Lovely experience xx
The food and place was nice however when we got to our original seats we were sat at the very back next to two sinks and a coffee maker and also near the door to the outside we did ask to move, which they let us.
Great place, out of the way nice atmosphere
Always a lovely venue. Very difficult to create atmosphere with no background music allowed and a quiet restaurant to start. Upstairs was freezing as the outside area door was open, but again sign of the times hospitality faces in regards safety. Lovely food and drinks.
A lovely restaurant and bar, with great food, friendly staff and delicious drinks. I’ll definitely be back!
Great service and very accommodating!
The place looked lovely, but we were made to feel that we should be grateful for getting a table here. Food was nice but did not have much else going for it. Much better places to eat that welcome you and provide fabulous service
Staff was amazing didnt get the guys name who was serving us but he made us feel so welcome, will defo be back again 🤩
Excellent food & service
Service was great, I wasn’t sure what drink I would like so the woman was great at helping me pick a drink!
Food was pretty rubbish. There wasn’t much lamb in the dish and it had basically some cheap pasta sauce on the top. Certainly not what I expected. The place we were seated was small and beside the door which was very cold. The drinks were the biggest joke of all. My cocktail was in a glass the size of a thimble. Very very overpriced and I can’t understand why anyone has given this place a high rating.
There was one member of staff, a woman with curly hair that leaned right over me from behind to get salt and pepper off the table then the same woman forced her way passed on the stairs instead DPD letting us come down first. The restaurant was lovely, food was stunning and the rest of the staff were lovely. It was a shame this one staff member made us feel unsafe.
Staff has a terrible attitude and were very unhelpful. We left very soon after arrival as did two other couples. When booking there is no option to have just drinks inside as well which is awful considering there is about three heaters outside. Atmospher was the worst of all the bars and restaurants we visited - I can only put this down to staff
Sat on the terrace, was very nice. A few more menu items would be welcomed
Absolutely amazing place! The stuff is providing an outstanding service! Food and drink is above the expectations!
