For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.

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”.

Summary

With its “postmodern industrial setting”, this former costume store, near the Traverse Theatre, is now the “coolest” venue in town; sample its “imaginative” menu (strong on “unusual locally-foraged vegetables”), and then “relax with a post-prandial drink by the wood-burning stove”.

Reviewed 7 months, 21 days ago

"Some good dishes but the service was terrible - aloof and slow. It took them 2hr30 to serve a four-course weekday lunch to people in a half-empty restaurant. Some of the drink pairings were bizarre and unpleasant."
