Martin Wishart Review

Slightly out of town but worth every penny of the taxi fare, this restaurant's well-known chef woos diners with an impeccable and varied menu of beautifully presented, French-influenced dishes. Shoulder fillet of beef wth Devonshire snails, chevril root, and parsely typify the cuisine, which costs £75 for three courses. For the very sweet of tooth there's a dessert tasting menu combing all three daily choices for an extra £7.50. On weekdays, the three-course lunch is £28. Reservations are essential on Friday and Saturday night.

    A pricey night out in Leith!

    7 of us dined here in December and had the tasting menu. After having tried tasting menus in other restaurants we found that this was the smallest portions we had ever been given. Even the fish course-scallop- was sliced into thin pieces and we got 1 slice instead of a whole scallop. After paying £100 per head(including wine) we left the restaurant feeling we could still eat more. Service was overly. There were far too many waiters hovering. A heavily accented Frenchman kept explaining what the courses were and we couldnt understand him! Meanwhile the food was going COLD!!!! Wont go back.
