As this establishment was closed when we arrived with no message advising us. We were very disappointed. I recommend booking elsewhere.

The restaurant was closed and the windows boarded up so no realistic feedback is possible other than to ask why are reservations still being taken, confirmed and then the guest Is asked to reconfirm?

You were shut!! We travelled a long way to spend the day in Edinburgh. Don’t you think you should inform customers on your website and ‘book a table’ that you have not reopened. If you do reopen...I guess we won’t be dining at your restaurant again!!! Shabby!!

Pretty hard to leave feedback as when I got there the place was boarded up! It’s absolutely disgusting that bookings are being taken when the the place has clearly been closed down for a while!!! Waste of my time!

Very disappointed in waiting time between courses felt 2 larger tables were getting all the attention and we were left waiting and waiting !!! Had to ask in the end were main course was this was after 45 minutes . Shame as go regularly. Could see they were busy ( but small tables are just as important) Was told we should have mentioned this as we only had so long as my daughter was due back at work . Felt we should not have needed to ask . I In the end my daughter had to rush her main course .

Despite the restaurant being empty, the service was very slow, the quality was over-priced and 3 out of 5 guests suffered food poisoning afterwards...

Interior design and ambience of restaurant disappointing, felt dated and souless Flickering light in ceiling also annoying. Welcome was rather rushed and flat. Waitress as was also very sultry and rather uninterested. Food pleasant but oysters and mussels all very small within shells. I also think if ordering mussels a side of chips or bread to accompany should be included in price.

So cosy. Delicious, fresh dishes. Very friendly staff. The place was packed with people taking tables as they were vacated, yet the service and food was excellent. High praise due to kitchen staff.

Found this restaurant online, wanted somewhere a little different as I'd booked a weekend away for my partners birthday. Everything about our visit was just fantastic. Food, service just excellent. Thank you

We were celebrating my partners bday. A glass of champagne on arrival was lovely touch. The manager was so friendly and made our evening extra special. Its ways the little extra touches the above and beyond the people go to to make you have an excellent experience that you end up remembering. Thank you for a wonderful evening
