Great new reviews have been published online for the bistro this July.
The List’s website takes an extract from the longer magazine review, which praises the seasonal food and sustainable and Scottish ethos of the bistro:
“It feels Scottish in approach rather than delivery – there’s not a hint of haggis in sight, with a rather unswerving focus on great local produce and conscientious suppliers…This embrace of what’s plentiful and good right now means foraged sweet cicely, cheaper meat cuts such as skirt steak and pork belly all appear on a well-judged, bistro-style menu.”
Meanwhile, Edinburgh food blogger @LeilAppetit (aka Bite Magazine’s Gourmet Girl!) gave the bistro this fabulous review:
“The first night I ate there was a ‘soft opening’ and the food was really good, but on my return visit two weeks later that ‘really good’ had been upgraded to ‘amazing’. The menu features loads of local, seasonal Scottish fare, seafood and some really imaginative and tempting vegetarian options. There’s a bit of a Scandinavian twist in many of the dishes too, so the appealing flavours, textures and colours marry in things like the soused vegetables and foraged ingredients like elderflower.”
