I have been there just yesterday evening. The food was very good. The meat was better than the fish. Good service. Nice people. The owner was kind. Good price.

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
