“An Edinburgh favourite” – star chef, Martin Wishart’s New Town brasserie maintains a very solid fan cub thanks to its “delicious brasserie-style cooking”. One or two reporters, however, are “not sure about the interior” (is it “slightly unimaginative”?)

“Enjoyable and consistent…”, “dependable and professional…” – such is the tenor of commentary on this “lovely” New Town brasserie from Martin Wishart, for 20 years one of Scotland’s leading chefs. The least enthusiastic report? “pleasant enough, with some real highlights but some dishes fell a little flat, especially at the price”.

“Maintaining high standards under the new head chef” – Martin Wishart’s New Town brasserie spin-off is almost invariably praised for its “delicious food” (particularly its “great steak”). However, in the same breath, reports almost invariably caution that “it’s expensive for what it is”.
