Our meal was perfectly prepared with clearly high quality ingredients, elegantly presented, accompanied by an excellent wine and served courteously by friendly staff in pleasantly intimate surroundings. Couldn't really ask for more. A thoroughly enjoyable evening at a very reasonable price.

A wonderful family owned restaurant, serving a wide range of Scottish food. Intimate, underground atmosphere with good portions. I can see why you would need to book. Well worth the wait

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
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
