Scotland the Best 2012

January 6, 2012

“Fabulous conversion by Victor and Carina Contini of a lofty, pillared Georgian room towards the west end of Edinburgh’s better boulevard into the classiest restaurant on the street and the most stylish joint in town. Passion for food and good service always evident; and they are ubiquitous (although they also run The Scottish Restaurant in Princes St Gardens). Bar and central pizza oven, unexpected combos in a straightforward, oft-changing menu. Great people-watching strip of tabes on the street. 7.30am till LO 10pm (11pm Fri/Sat), 11am-9pm Sun. Bar open late.”

– A recent review from Peter Irvine’s Scotland the Best 2012

Well done team and thanks to all our lovely customers, suppliers and friends for your continued support xx
