This “real gem” on the road to Leith – “family-run with flair and passion”“uses unusual cuts of locally sourced meats and seasonal produce to keep the cost of lunch to £10”. It’s “intimate and cosy, but on a hot summer’s day, sitting outside sipping wine and eating the amazing fresh food the kitchen sends out is a real treat”.

Now two years old, this “very good local” on the road to Leith is a superior “cheap ’n’ cheerful” option, serving “fresh, home cooked food” that’s a cut-above. Top Menu Tip: “the £10 lunch for two courses, with the chance to BYO, is one of Edinburgh’s best bargains”.
