I dined at the restaurant on Tuesday; I was very impressed that I could book online, especially as I only booked on the Monday when the restaurant was closed. I also received a telephone call in the morning to confirm my reservation. Other restaurants in Edinburgh take note.
The atmosphere was relaxed but elegant, a good value lunch options was available but my guest and I selected the A la Carte. For starter my guest had the Kilbrannan Scallops and Bellota Ham, which looked delightful and I choose the Scallop Risotto Special, which was superb. For main course I selected Loin of Borders Roe Deer, which melted in the mouth and my guest choose Braised Beef Cheek, Pumpkin Seed Brittle, which I am told was excellent. I admitted to knowing very little about wine but our Sommelier was very helpful and selected some beautiful wines for us and didn't make me feel in the least intimidated. Desert was equally as good. I couldn't fault this restaurant. To say it was a Tuesday lunch time the restaurant had a good atmosphere, with guest taking advantage of either the tasting menu, or reasonably priced lunch menu in equal measure.
I look forward to returning when next in Edinburgh.
