My wife and I have been twice for lunch in the past 6 months and enjoyed it both times. The lunch menu is excellent value and the latest occasion included for dessert one of the best sticky toffee puddings I've had. With good, friendly service, it's difficult to fault.

We dropped in for lunch without a booking and were lucky enough to get a table in this small restaurant. We just had a main course as we were going out later, but the starters looked appealing and there was a good choice. We settled on fishcakes for my wife and I had a cold seafood platter. Both dishes were... More

Went for my daughter's 21st birthday. Staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. Couldn't ask for a better day.

My husband's fish was overcooked, and my curried dish flavouring was harsh and unpleasant. As my husband left half his plate of food he was asked if it was okay. When he explained they refunded the price of his fish. My dish was not discussed. Disappointing, as We've eaten here many times before and always been very pleased.

We had a late booking (2100) on a Friday night as I only reserved with about a week to go. However, when we arrived the restaurant was full and had a nice buzz about it. There is a good choice of food on the menu and I would say that whilst most of it is mid range price-wise some dishes... More

We brought our friends here last week as I have eaten here many times before and always been very pleased with the food. 4 of us ordered the monkfish and it was rubbery and tough served over a (tiny) portion of quinoa. The food was lukewarm by the time we received it. This was the most expensive item on the... More

Went for a romantic meal here for a birthday dinner. Staff were friendly, service was fast, and the food was excellent. The Monkfish and the Isle of Gigha Halibut were both beautifully presented and both incredibly delicious! Would highly recommend.

Visited early evening. The restaurant is small and informal- the prices are not. The scallop starter was very promising, the skewered balls were rubbery but were accompanied by a tasty salad. For main course we had sea bass and lemon sole - the fish was cooked perfectly - as good as you could get anywhere. The side dishes of new... More

Managed to squeeze a booking here on a 6 nations sports weekend and took a short taxi ride from Edinburgh centre to Leith waterside to try this restaurant, recommended by our friendly hotel receptionists. The ambience was great, a cozy but modern interior, very professional and well-informed service from a seasoned waiter and excellent food and wine. It wasn't cheap,... More

Very nicely cooked & presented food (steak as well as seafood) served with a smile. Excellent & sensibly priced wines, nice surroundings, casual but subliminally sophisticated dining experience in the restaurant, much more relaxed in the bar/bistro part.
