Fodor's Review

The name may amuse or bemuse you, but there's no doubt this relaxed spot with windows overlooking the Royal Mile provides good-value, refined dining. Within the 16th-century building, the understated decor includes a sculptural centerpiece of an angel with bagpipes copied from a carving in nearby St. Giles Cathedral. Menus are straightforward and not overlong, the service is slick, and the atmosphere is warm. Seafood and game dominate, with dishes such as salmon with salsa verde and quinoa. For the best value, opt for the seasonal lunch menu, available between noon and 6, with two courses for £155 and three for £19.
