Fodor's Expert Review Michael Neave Kitchen and Whisky Bar
Young chef Michael Neave delivers exceptional cuisine at affordable prices in his restaurant just off the Royal Mile. With a mission to "explore the best of Scotland’s larder," quality Scottish produce is the star here, with meaty mains like Aberdeen Angus steaks, Perthshire venison, and Borders lamb appearing alongside Scottish seafood specialties like lobster and sea bream. They're all served with imaginative sauces and delicately cooked vegetables. This modern edifice with tranquil terrace is down an old close; the downstairs dining area is a little lacking in warmth, but the whisky bar upstairs sparkles. Finish your culinary tour of the country with a selection of Scottish cheeses and, finally, a whisky. The three-course express lunches are a bargain at £9.95.
