“Tucked away” in a “cosy” Georgian Stockbridge basement, chef Paul Gunning’s ‘casual fine dining’ venue serves “exceptionally delicious” cuisine “at a fraction of the price of other restaurants serving food of this quality”. “I’m amazed by how good the menu and dishes are for such a small restaurant”.

“Superb, imaginative food as good as any in Edinburgh” (fish-centric and “ridiculously great value”) from à la carte as well as five-course and seven-course tasting options, makes this below-stairs Stockbridge spot one of the city’s top ‘casual-fine-dining’ choices; service will have you feeling “like a special guest”.
