Booked this restaurant as we felt like a nice steak. It's a nice restaurant, friendly helpful staff. Unfortunately our steaks did not live up to our expectations. Very thin, over cooked and therefore tasteless. We were disappointed.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
