Just great! Intimate little restaurant on Broughton Street near the Edinburgh Playhouse. Based on reviews I have read, there seem to be several excellent choices in the area. If they are half as good as the Flea this should be a foodie mecca. My wife...More

My husband ate here at the recommendation of our VRBO hostess. It was outstanding at a fair price. Even though it was a Tuesday night we wished we had a booking as the restaurant is very small and very popular. We went at about 6...More

We love this place and eat here when we are in Edinburgh. The food is delicious, exciting and beautifully presented. At £12 for two courses at lunch time it is incredible value - you would be happy with this food in a fine dining restaurant....More

What an amazing restaurant. Some of the best food we have ever had and not at silly prices. A shared starter, two most excellent main meals and a carafe of wine for £55. The staff are friendly and efficient and the atmosphere very relaxed. We...More

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighborhoods with a mixed
identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found
a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but

if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art
galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of
