Fodor's Review

Chef Neil Forbes' quintessentially Parisian-style café champions sustainable local produce. From the moment you enter the beautifully lighted room you're transported into the decadently stylish belle époque. A concise menu that changes daily leaves more time for chatting. You might start off with a warm salad of scallops, monkfish, chorizo, and pine nuts, followed by Perthshire venison, North Sea hake, or Scotch shepherd's pie.

Hidden Gem

When they say this is quintessentially French believe them! Linen table clothes, black and white tiled floor, large mirrors in even larger frames, prints of Paris, waiters in white shirts and black waistcoats with aprons tied round their waist, you will believe you are in Paris. The food is fine, again very French bistro with a fixed price lunch menu. Good and very French wine list. It is small and you will have to book or smile ever so nicely to

get a table and once you're seated just sit back, sip your wine, forget the people at the next table sitting on top of you and enjoy the bustle. Have the steak and frites - best in town.
