Summary

“If only all places could be this good”, say fans of Jeff Bland’s long-standing fixture – a “wonderful” space in the basement of the city’s grandest hotel. His “fantastic”, “classical” cuisine – the tasting menu with wine flights attracts particular acclaim – “never fails to reward a visit”, but the “attentive” staff (“I even left a note thanking them!”) also rate mention.

Summary

“Consistently the best in Edinburgh”, say fans – Jeff Bland’s perhaps “unexpectedly fabulous” cuisine makes a visit to the basement dining room of the grandest hotel in town a “not-to-be-missed” experience; the wine-pairing menu attracts particular raves.

Summary

“Not be missed when Edinburgh!”; this basement dining room transcends its subterranean location (albeit in the grandest hotel in town) to offer an experience which, almost all reports agree, is “wonderful, from start to finish”; Jeff Bland’s cuisine is “beautifully presented, but not over fussy, or too complicated”.
