Small intimate restaurant offering fresh sea food. We started with delicious baked mussles in garlic and butter followed by nice oysters. We split a great ribeye steak. All tummy!!

We were disappointed to show up 10 minutes late and our table to have been taken. Whilst dining with important clients as the meal continued later than we had initially intended the girls at the till then began to count the money very loudly right beside our table and hint towards us leaving. This was disappointing as service was slow and we weren’t able to order drinks as we would have liked and there was a distinct lack of atmosphere as you would expect from a top Edinburgh restaurant. The evening was disappointing and it seems there has been a significant change in the restaurant priorities and it’s steer towards trying to complete as many orders as possible instead of given a service experience.

All the food was delicious — the mussels with two different sauces (curry coriander and wine garlic), the queen scallops starter, and the amazing chips. Service was quick and our Portuguese waiter was lovely. The prices were reasonable too. Would return when I’m back in Edinburgh.

I booked because your lunch menu on-line had rump steak on it. When we arrived we were told that the menu had changed and steak was not available. However even when we were sitting in the restaurant and checked your website it still said rump steak was on the lunch menu. Most disappointing as we only booked because steak was on the menu. The fish and chips was not very good! The Zinfandel was not properly chilled. There were no clams in the shellfish platter as stated on the menu.

The food was delicious. The selection of seafood was ample and my friend and I couldn’t help but order many dishes to share. 10/10 would eat there again soon.

Muy buena calidad, buen servicio. Tan solo un problema al final con los postres que fue espléndidamente gestionado por la chica que nos atendió. El local algo pequeño, pero quizá ése sea uno de sus encantos.

Produits frais et traditionnels. Prix de certains produits comme le homard très excessif (180£ le kilo!)

Make sure to put in a reservation as this restaurant is in high demand. Other than the quaint store front, this joint is also characterised by the ubiquitous long queues snaking down the pavement. And what can we say about the staff? They’re super friendly and helpful. Plus...the owner (Marshall?) gave us 2 complimentary servings of yummy oysters! That’s excellent customer service for you! 😊😊😊

Excellent meal. Service was superb, waitress very attentive. Maybe ordered too much food and we were running out of space on our table. Will be back.

Casual, rather than fine dining. Perfect seafood and steaks. Helpful and friendly service. Really can’t be faulted, made our first meal in Edinburgh a memorable one. Thank you!
