One of my favourite restaurants in Edinburgh. Always consistently good quality and great value for money.

I thought the decoration could be a little brighter. On entering the restaurant it looks a bit dull. This however does not reflect negatively on the food and the service. I will definitely come again.

The food was excellent and great value for money. The woman who served us was very friendly and helpful. We liked that there was just a few options on the menu. Would definitely go back. The Walnut Whip was the best part of the meal!

We absolutely loved it and have spoken about it a lot since! It’s honestly the best meal out I’ve had in a long time. I’ve marked slightly lower for atmosphere, purely down to the fact we are in tire 3 and The Walnut was closing early. No fault of the restaurants! We can’t wait to return, I’ll bring my parents when I do, as I think they will also love it. Great quality food, very reasonable prices!

Leiths hidden gem for the walnut whip alone would be a 10/10.

A great find on Leith Walk. The best value 3 course meal for £18 you can find. The food was delicious, great mix of flavours. Dessert was a highlight

Food very good, although, as a good eater, I left hungry. I would have love a bit more quantity. Also It would have been great if the restaurant had the heating on, we felt a little cold, and that makes you enjoy it less.

Despite allowing me to book, sending a confirmation email and showing as open on Google, I arrived at the cafe on Sat to find they were closed. Appreciate given the current situation it’s hard for local businesses to manage all this admin, however I would have thought the management would have taken the booking link offline.

Food and service was amazing, enjoyed all three courses finished off with the delicious walnut whip! Could have been more choices of soft drinks. Was a little chilly in the restaurant but not uncomfortable.

Came for an early 2 course dinner to celebrate a friend s 50th birthday. Superb food beautifully cooked. The fig tartin with vanilla ice cream was a total standout dish. Service was friendly polite and helpful. Will most definately be back again. Would highly recommend!

Only giving 4 starts for the atmosphere because of unavoidable Covid restraints - but impact much less bad than in other places. I'd not been since the new owners took over - food and value just as great as they used to be (I'm hoping they'll reintroduce the delicious home made foccaccia soon)
