Summary

“Exceptional and interesting food” in the “atmospheric surroundings” of a Victorian warehouse can be a “stunning experience” at this modern, Scandi-influenced operation from the second generation of the Radford family (whose parents Andrew and Lisa ran popular Edinburgh restaurants Atrium and Blue).

Summary

A “top spot for Edinburgh” – this “large and barn-like”, “warehouse-style” venue is run by the younger generation of local restaurant impresarios, the Radford family. It gives rise to the odd niggle (“a bit too much hype”“possibly takes itself a bit seriously”…) but for the most part wins high praise for its “warm modern style”, and “innovative cuisine with the emphasis on foraging and sustainability”.

Summary

“The Radord family excel at this great space” – a converted warehouse with outside terrace near the Traverse Theatre. “Tastebuds are tantalised and challenged, but in a good way” by the “fascinating” Nordic-inspired cuisine, and it’s an “exciting” venue – “lovely lighting, candles and woodburner” (and “great cocktails”) – even if “you never feel hip enough to eat there”.

Summary

“Scandinavia meets Scotland” in this “forgivably pretentious”, “hipster” hang-out – “a converted brick warehouse, with outside terrace in an unremarkable street”, near the Traverse Theatre. “Sustainable is the watch-word”, on the “eclectic” menu – “it’s an amazing place to sample local produce”, with “great cocktails”.

"Wow - ups and downs! Service was delightful but soooo slow. Food was really erratic: of the six courses two were awful, two were OK ish and two were great (the dessert and the crab with hazlenut). Wine list was wide, advice was sincere but was it me or were the wines just to expensive for what they were? Hmmm"
