About Cucina - G&V Royal Mile Hotel
Still as good as ever!
Although the hotel has changed hands, the restaurant is still wonderful. The zucchini fritti is delicious and we have it every time we visit. Service is friendly and cheerful and always prompt without being intrusive.
Dine on the pre theatre menu, it provides wonderful value for money and you still get the 5 star treatment (and portions!) Would not hesitate in returning to this great place.
