Excellent. We visited in March and knowing we were returning to Edinburgh again in November, it was definitely on our list for a return visit. It was every bit as good and even better. The food was outstanding and our waiter Luciano was terrific. If we return to Edinburgh, we will definitely return. More

The setting is nice, the staff were great, just the food was a little disappointing. However, saying this there is a good selection on the menu. I would still recommend the restaurant to friends. We dined for a very early lunch so there may have been a bit more of an atmosphere had we been there a little later in the day More
