“What a find!” – a tucked-away and affordable Morningside bistro where the local/seasonal food (from an “interesting and unusual menu”) is “always exceptionally good”. Add in “friendly, professional service” and it’s several reporters’ “restaurant of choice”.
“The local everybody would like to have” – alas, only Morningside residents can lay claim to this cosy bistro with French-Gaelic cuisine that’s “just lovely”.
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”).
A top tip as a “great-value” destination – a Morningside bistro that’s well worth seeking out.
