This restaurant is located in the grass market. Yes it's a tourist trap. Food over rated and over priced my pizza was full of oil. I've had better from a take away at 2am. Sadly won't be returning. Also £4.50 for a cider is very...More

We stopped in for dinner, and each had a pizza. The dough was not crispy, the tomato sauce was flat, and the cheese was not appetizing. The house wine was memorably terrible. Service was ok.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the

the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
