We visited on a Thursday evening. It was very quiet considering it was during the festival. We were looked after by a couple of the male servers, they were pleasant enough but a bit distracted, slow and generally uninterested. The people at the table next...More

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
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along

Cocktail bar of the year 2015 with an equally as good food offering with fantastic burgers and pizza. Friday and Saturday night we dim down the lights and the DJ turns up the music.
