We try to eat here whenever we are in the area and yet again lunch was super.The lunch menu is small but everything on offer was tempting.The bread if freshly baked,the wine list good and the coffee good quality.
The breast of guinea fowl melted in you mouth,the accompanying mushroom fondant and truffle mash perfected the dish.Starters and puddings were all delicious.
It is a small ,friendly family run restaurant run in a professional manner with great quality ingredients.

Limited menu but wonderful French cuisine served by chef. Small, intimate, terrific. Leisurely paced, don't be in a hurry and where would you go anyway!)

Came for a lunch with my Mum and my Aunt after hearing many great things. Can say in no uncertain terms that we were not disappointed! The food was an absolute treat: top quality ingredients cooked into dishes that were executed with aplomb! The brie tart to start was simply divine, one of the best shortcrust pastries I've had the pleasure of eating. The Lemon Sole was delicate yet full of flavour, one of my favourite white fish cooked to absolute perfection! Desert was chocolate heaven! A warm, unctuous moulleux served with cherries. The coffee was lovely and the service was ideal. Friendly and relaxed whilst allowing diners to enjoy their meal.

All in all an absolutely lovely spot for a bite to eat. Top quality ingredients cooked and presented really rather well without forgetting that food is, after all, all about the eating!

Would definitely dine again!

Our group of golfers first dined with Keith and Mary five years ago, so when our travels took us back to Gullane we had to return to La Potiniere. Our second visit was every bit as wonderful as the first. From the delicious amuse bouche to the coffee and chocolates at the finish the food and service were impeccable. The wine list continues to provide intriguing options, and Keith even had the Gavi di Gavi that we had been unable to get the previous night. Hopefully we will be back in less than five years this time.
