Been a couple of times to Le Sept and remain to be impressed with the overall fare. The food is good but ordinary and not cheap. Doubt that I will be back.

Finally found #5 Hunt Square only to find Pulcinella, an Italian restaurant which has replaced Le Sept. Didn't stay as we just came from Italy and I was really looking forward to the onion soup.

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

Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
