"The service was excellent, the two-for-one deal made a meal that was already good value obscenely cheap, and the journey back to gridlocked Edinburgh was as joyful and stress-free as our outward journey. All in all, this was a journey well worth making."  Richard Bath, Scotland on Sunday

"The cooking is exciting and well executed" and "Prices reasonable, exceptionally so by Edinburgh's bloated standards"  The Metro

"A real sense of being somewhere special"  The List
