Oysters were so fresh, lobster was delicious, and drinks weren't half bad either ;)

Unser Steak war voll Sehnen, fast ungenießbar. Das Restaurant ist sehr klein, man sitzt sehr eng, daher auch nicht unbedingt gemütlich.

The food & waiters were amazing and could not fault the young waiter we had - it was his first evening. We had a table reserved for 8.15pm but weren’t seated until gone 9.00pm during this time we were squashed into the small bar / entrance area, such a shame the start was not relaxed.

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.
