* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

This “bustling and lively upstairs venue” in the New Town is the latest from chef Dean Banks (also of the nearby Pompadour and Haar in St Andrews), who “certainly knows how to cook fish – the octopus in the starter was tender and tasty, and the sole main course was well cooked”. The Scotsman’s Gaby Soutar was also impressed, in particular by the “sybaritic and rich” lobster crumpet.

For 33 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).

"Nicely cooked and presented fish and seafood. However, langoustines need a finger bowl, which didn't appear, despite being requested. Portions were rather on the small side, for the excessive price. Some dishes were too fussy and overthought. "

"This restaurant, run by a former professional Masterchef finalist, specialises in fish and cooks it very well. An Arbroath smokie tart with seaweed crumpet and octopus with burnt tomato and citrus barley were particularly good."
