This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
It's next-door to the home of Scotland's national instrument and they serve traditional food in a – let's say typically Scottish – warm and cosy atmosphere ideal for quiet conviviality and romantic rendezvous. It's even handily located at the top of Hope St. Yet the feeling remains that it’s a restaurant that could be better-known among locals. Haggis, meat and fish feature in most of the choices (although vegetarians are catered for thanks to some Italian inspiration), which are made from mainly locally sourced ingredients. Arran cheddar potato cake topped with black pudding and a fried egg makes for a comforting starter from a choice that may include cullen skink and beer-battered haddock goujons. A main course of smoked haddock and pea risotto brings a touch of the north (of Italy) to the table, with flavours that work well although the consistency could be more al dente. The dessert selection is relatively limited but includes a very creamy and filling cranachan – a jig or two may be required to work off the calories.
