“It’s always a pleasure to dine” at this “beautiful restaurant, slightly off the beaten track in glorious Edinburgh” – the “contemporary décor” is matched by “sublime, beautifully cooked” modern European dishes, which benefit from chef Maciej Szymik’s “very different presentation”. “Staff are welcoming and attentive”. There’s now a sibling brasserie in the West End, Otro.

“A super find in Edinburgh”, set where New Town and Canonmills meet; from the “great deal at lunch” to the innovative use of Scottish produce, the food – by ex-Harvey Nicks Forth Floor Restaurant chef Maciek Szymij – is “always A1”.

“An exceptional value set lunch” is a key feature at this popular fixture between New Town and Canonmills, whose “well-cooked and thought-out” local food, by Maciek Szymij, ex-of Harvey Nichol’s Fourth Floor restaurant, is “more than expected for the simple bistro ambience”. It has just opened a sibling in the West End too (Otro, 22 Coates Crescent, EH3).

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).

"It's a lovely neighbourhood joint, good fish and seasonal ingredients. Staff are friendly...there is a marginally dingy basement, so avoid that when you book, but otherwise it's just the kind of place you want to be 5 minutes walk around the corner from your house. "
