Lovely restaurant - felt very French. Great food and service. But, I had the cheese board to finish. It was the meanest I have ever seen. One small wedge of Brie type cheese and that was it! Almost comical. Still, a great place to eat....More

Often when you have expectations you’re let down. Not so here. Arrived without a booking and they found a way to fit us in. Had grilled asparagus with poached egg for starters and it was so good I would have been happy with that in...More

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
