“Hidden away in the lanes of the New Town but well worth seeking out” – Neil Forbes's “romantic” fixture is a “French delight in the middle of Edinburgh” (“like stepping into somewhere in Paris”). Reporters, taking their place alongside the “large cohort of regulars”, invariably laud its “authentic” cooking – “French with Scottish touches” (and nowadays with “sustainability and organic local produce at its heart”).

“French romantic at its best… I felt transported 500 miles south” – Neil Forbes’s “intimate brasserie” is a long-term fixture of the New Town, and wins glowing all-round praise for its “lovely cosy atmosphere” and “delicious” food that’s “always consistent”, too.

“Classic Gallic charm and good French cooking” are found in spades at Neil Forbes’s “small and intimate” (if perhaps “cramped”) bistro “tucked away in one of Edinburgh’s quieter streets”. “A perfect treat” that’s been a feature of the New Town for over 20 years.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"always good and reliable. Excellent smoked trout with horseradish starter, and crispy goats cheese didn't disappoint. Outstanding commitment to local small suppliers. "
