Reason we come to Edinburgh, thought it was slightly different, wine list was restricted, but food and drink as good as ever. Got the feeling it could be under new management, but the food and service was outstanding as usual

I highly recommend this restaurant. The food was exquisite and the staff was exceptional. The owner came to our table and asked how our experience was.

My sea bass was cook just right. No overcooked seafood! The oysters were good too. No complaints on food and services. But the place is quite packed and not a romantic setting. Come for the food, it is well worth it

I used to come to the mussel and steak bar all the time but haven't been for a year, I was really excited to go again since I used to love it. However, I was so disappointed! The menu now consists of just mussels or steak with maybe one other fish option whilst it used to have a great specials board and a whole or half lobster you could have which was amazing. The prices have gone up too so I felt it was more money for a lot less choice and the service was no where near as good as it used to be. The children's menu was also a joke, what 2 year old wants a giant bowl of potato and smoked cheese soup?!

Our third visit and the food gets better every time. A starter of fresh oysters was followed by the surf and turf with the Picanha steak. It was a phenomenal meal. The staff were excellent and attentive whilst also advising on the best pubs to visit to continue our evening. We will be back soon.

Excellent restaurant de poisson. Tout est très frais et excellent. Vous devez libérer votre table après 2h impérativement, mais c'est bien assez à mon avis car le service est efficace et rapide. Les prix sont assez élévé mais la qualité et la quantité sont au rendez-vous. Réservez votre table à l'avance sinon vous risquez bien de ne pas avoir de place. Cétait vraiment bon, j'en garde un bon souvenir.

We had a lovely evening with family at the mussels and steak bar. The crab cakes, the grilled mussels and the oysters were divine. The lobster special was also amazing.

Service was lacking and while the steaks were satisfactory this is little more than pub bistro quality or experience.

Run. Don't walk to make a reservation for this place. This was the best and freshest sea food I have had in a long time. It is a great value for the money. The seating is a bit tight but the food is worth any minor discomfort. It is a popular place so book early. We will be back!

Our waitress was lovely and chatty x Food was the best . The oysters r the best we have ever tasted. The only downside was it was stuffy where we sat upstairs with no window or fresh air.
