As a fellow Scot I was keen to try this place out. I love the decor, very cool and funky - especially the lights. The table we sat at was a reclaimed "Singer" base which I wanted to take home!! The service was excellent. Efficient and very friendly. Our waitress was very chatty and welcoming. The food was amazing! I had the duck spring rolls to start, my partner had the scallops and both were amazing. The scallops were served with black pudding which I wouldn't normally eat but it was really good and went well with the scallops. For mains I had the Cullenskink risotto and my partner had steak with truffle fries. Both were really good. The cullenskint is very fishy so make sure you like fish if you are ordering this dish. They said it was a new wine list and I was very impressed. There is lots to choose from. Overall very impressed and would recommend it.
