Square Meal Review of Sylvester's ?

Since taking over what was the much-loved Pink Olive, Kieran and Nicola Sylvester's eponymous restaurant has picked up on the offbeat quality and value that made its predecessor such a hit with students and locals alike. Located just a stroll from Bristo Square and the heart of Edinburgh’s Festival activity, this small but perfectly formed eatery has an impressive festival menu, but it's the year-round offering which is the most impressive – particularly as prices are pitched for comfort. Pay your money for smoked mackerel and lemon pâté, haggis bonbons or toasted goats’ cheese and Kalamata olive bruschetta, ahead of oriental-style confit duck, pollock and chips or wild mushroom risotto. Light lunches also bring sharing platters, deli sandwiches, superfood salads and suchlike, while desserts maintain the please-all theme with banoffi cheesecake or chocolate and orange brownie.
