About Cucina - G&V Royal Mile Hotel
Oh wow took my mum for her birthday for afternoon tea, we were blown away by the offerings it certainly exceeded expectations I had looked around for somewhere special with a unique menu and this is by far the best in Edinburgh. We were shown to our table by Matueuz who kindly explained everything and left us alone to choose our teas and view the menu. He returned with a glass of prosecco each which was such a lovely touch.
There was plenty to each and it was all delicious certainly not your big standard egg mayo!! The smoked salmon wraps were delicious as were the scones and every single delightful sweet treat
It was rounded off with a lemon sorbet on a tiny wee cone.
Such a relaxed atmosphere we were attentively looked after yet not pestered, the venue was stunning and the staff were simply wonderful.
We will most definitely be back and this review can never do it justice
Thank you so very much
Please do not change a thing 😊
How to make a lady feel special - cheers Cucina
My wife's birthday and so I left a message on the booking form to let Cucina know that and they didn't disappoint.
From the second we walked in we were made to feel welcome, our host was Mateusz and he started by delivering a glass of prosecco for our table guests. Food was incredible, tasty and wholesome with a modern twist.
But before the evening ended, back they came with a lovely surprise for my wife, free treats and who doesn't like free treats.
Thank you Cucina, you made one birthday girl very happy and her three table guest very full with some quality food!
