    Extremely good value!

    We were a party of 3 with an 5pm voucher for a two course lunch for £12 each. We had a choice of three starters and three mains. The soup was delicious and served with crusty bread and butter. One of our party had the pate which also looked very good. We all had the same main, chicken breast served with haggis, mash and pepper sauce, a generous portion which too was very tasty and attractively served. We had the option of a sweet, but as we were full, we opted for tea and coffee instead. The service was very good. We also had a bottle of wine which, at £29, was perfectly adequate. We would definitely return - fantastic value meal at £12.

    Excellent Restaurant

    The waiter, Chris, could not have been nicer or more friendly. We were warmly greeted & shown to our alcove seats. Nice & cosy. What a lovely restaurant. The food was delicous and plentiful. The starter was amazingly presented, the main was very decorative & the desert was to die for. Too much! The drinks were fairly priced for Edinburgh prices. To finish off this amazing visit was a tour of the premises. Not to be missed if available. Well worth a visit to this excellent restaurant and its lovely staff. J. Strain, 08.01.18.
