“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.

“Perfect for that romantic occasion”, but also a “reliable choice” for a “great value lunch” or “consistently good evening meal” – Neil Forbes’s “small” and “intimate” New Town brasserie ticks all the boxes of a “classic French restaurant”.

For 30 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).

"Friday dinner when one would expect a bit of focus from the team. Poor service and the odd moment of pleasure was a relief from general mediocrity of the food. The reality was a long way off the level that the prices and pretentions would suggest"
