My first Trip Advisor review. This restaurant is excellent. Delightful food, a well rounded and good value wine list - hey even the coffee was brilliant. A limited but seasonal menu married with attentive but not intrusive service. Highly recommended.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest

crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along

Yup! I’m gluten free and had no problems. Other allergies and sensitivities (there was a few in our party) were handled superbly.

A dining experience offering locally sourced Scottish cuisine, hidden in Edinburgh's West End. A fantastic menu, using foraged items from Edinburgh and local meats & fish to produce the very best dishes.
