Summary

The “perfect neighbourhood bistro(t)”“a lovely little place a little way out of the centre” in Morningside “but well worth the taxi ride or walk to get there”. “It’s not exactly cheap ’n’ cheerful but very good value, using excellent ingredients and the cooking has a nice local feel”. “Staff are brilliant and very knowledgeable” and overall this remains one of the most satisfactory places to eat in the city.

Summary

A “consistently great, neighbourhood bistro” in Morningside, where “the best ingredients are treated with respect” to create some “stunning” dishes, served very “professionally”. There's an “unbelievably good-value set lunch, but à la carte shows how well they can cook if you want to trade up” (and “it still won’t break the bank”).
