    This restaurant was a great find! In plain sight on the Royal Mile it provides a unique Scottish dining experience for the visitor. Our server was attentive and friendly, and while food choices are minimal they are all tempting and delicious. Wine and cocktail selections are top notch as well. We looked out into a lovely courtyard from our seats. Would highly recommend for a delightful fine dining evening out!
