About Galvin Brasserie de Luxe
Late, lazy lunch on a sunny Saturday
After a warm welcome we were shown to a sunny table. Our hostess Julia pointed out some changes to the seasonal menu. We had the brocolli veloutte and the pigeon salad, both excellent, as was the chicken & gunard. Carrot cake all round, lovely. Such a great lunch.
On a wet ,haar covered Edinburgh there was no better place tor lunch than the Galvin Brasserie
A very warm welcome ......from a very cold day ......by the staff and a bright rearranged restaurant
