Limited edition Fringe prints!

July 29, 2010

It’s Festival time!

As many of you may have seen, the front cover of the Fringe brochure this year, (along with bags, t-shirts and other lovely collectibles), features the work of talented illustrator, Johanna Basford. We love her work so much, that we are showcasing two of her limited edition prints in the reception at Centotre and also in Zanzero.

The prints, which can be bought at the Fringe Shop on the High Street, have been beautifully framed by our good friend, Carol Coulter. They are for sale for £50 (unframed) but should you wish to have them framed, then Carol would be delighted to help.

Why not drop by for a coffee, glass of wine or a bite to eat and enjoy some lovely artwork at the same time.

Buon Compleanno Carina!

Downstairs at Centotre

July 12, 2010

Perfect for your special occasion!

Thank you to Kate and Veronica for your kind words. It was our pleasure and we hope to see you again soon.

We came to Centotre, The Downstairs on Saturday. I am writing to say a Massive Thank You for everything.
The food was fantastic, the room was excellent and Kenneth, our slave (Thats how he described himself to us!) he was marvellous. He sorted everything out regarding drinks and orders and is a credit to your company. Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to everyone who was involved for our fabulous evening.
I will highly recommend your restaurant to anyone who says they are visiting Edinburgh.
Thanks again


Can I just say a HUGE thank you on behalf of my Father and the whole family.  We had a wonderful night, the food, the wine, the cake and the staff were all excellent, it could not have been more perfect and clearly my Dad loved the venue as it has been many years since I have heard him singing!!!!
Many many thanks for a memorable evening.
Kind regards
