Steak and Mussels were great as always. Our server was particularly helpful with navigating dietary requirements and making sure we had food on the table quickly to help keep our small children calm. He was also just generally pleasant and helpful.

Our service was rough (the same dishes we ordered showing up to tables that arrived after us, I had to snag us a bottle of water from the bar because it never came to our table) but the food was so good when it came it was easy to ignore this. The House Platter is an overwhelming amount of seafood, but so worth the effort. Great location in the heart of Edinburgh.

My friend recommended this place to me as she went here a lot when she studied nearby a few years ago, however I guess things changed, the service wasn't pleasing - I wasn't told or informed that there's extra charge for dressing or sides until I got my bill. Other than that, the food was OK. A good location for a quick lunch.

We had dinner on Sunday evening. The place was crowded and a lot of people were standing and waiting for available tables. Staff was running from table to table, there was a unpleasant feeling of rush all the time. We asked for dessert menu which we never got so we decided to leave. The seafood was great, one of us took chicken which was really dry.

Very tasty food. Service was not at a top level, but this wasn't really a big issue.

I love going here because it’s a generous amount of food for a good price (I always order the house platter or 1/2 kilo mussel pot). The food is delicious, I tried the bailey’s cheesecake for the first time and it was really good. The service is amazing, the waiters are helpful and friendly, the food arrives quickly too!

Lovely welcome from waitstaff (though the headwaitress was a bit standoffish, everyone else was welcoming and friendly). Our food wasn’t exactly how we ordered them, but we were offered free desserts to make up for it.

Great place but expensive. We had to ask for the lunch menu (which is slightly cheaper and available up to 5pm). Been here many times but I think it needs to up its game a bit, way too many choices of eating places on the doorstep so they could start to lose out.

There were three of us and we had a the muscles to share as a starter. There were not enough muscles to go around. The time to wait for the drinks was not good. Also the time we had to wait for our main course was unacceptable. Staff could not cope with the amount of guests
