Went with friends to Petite Paris recently and thought that the service was slow. Admittedly it was a Friday night and it was busy, but they should be more on the ball! The French onion soup that my wife had was pretty poor and the...More

Had a very nice French meal. And it is a proper French restaurant. There's a half dozen tables as you enter, but there's clearly another room behind which seemed to soak up clients as they came in. I noted some folk had booked. Starters are...More

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
