The place was quite quiet early evening, ordered some food, which came very quickly. The food was nice and tasty, would recommend it to others

Nice cocktails and a nice little bar in a good location. However the tables and menus were dirty. We have one drink and left.

The waitress here is exceptionally rude to customers and potential customers. Recently, when I arrived with a party of seven, we waited for 5 minutes standing by the door, while a waitress flirted with the bartender. When she finally came, she told us that there...More

Called in for food before leaving Edinburgh for the airport. Great fast service and more than happy with the food and half price cocktails. Would visit again
