In love with this place for all the reasons in the title. We’ve always had a great experience every time we come. I’d recommend booking in advance, especially for getting a table in the glass box - which provides great views across Edinburgh city centre.More

First time visiting here and was thoroughly unimpressed. Nice enough restaurant but when it’s busy, it just feels like a glamorous buffet type restaurant which sadly loses its appeal. Bathrooms are in poor condition. Staff here, bar a few exceptions, are totally disinterested in the...More

Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
