“A Little Death near the Kings Theatre”
We were impressed. Waitresses were friendly, helpful, and enthusiastic about the food. Décor is ‘restored old Edinburgh’ featuring one wall where the original stonework has been exposed and illuminated. I ordered the soup followed by cullen skink Risotto. The stilton and broccoli soup was rich and tasty. The risotto was everything a risotto should be: creamy, flavoursome, fulsome.
