Last night in Edinburgh was made incredibly special by finding a dining experience on par with five star restaurants. The setting was elegant, food amazing, and service incredible. Definitely a must when visiting Edinburgh.

A wonderful experience. Warm welcome from friendly staff. Good and efficient service, without being intrusive or trying to hurry you along. Excellent menu showing sourcing of local produce.
