    The Spoon is a beautiful place with Ercol furniture and large stain glass windows. The staff were delightful. Food delicious and I’d not hesitate in recommending this gem of a restaurant

    The food and atmosphere was amazing, the decor was amazing and my mum and I had a lovely meal before hopping across the road to the theatre, great location. Would like to pur emphasis on the great service by a lovely red headed girl, didn't catch her name I'm afraid but if we travel through to edinburgh again will definitely be going back. Side note the cocktails were very strong.

    Lovely welcome, friendly helpful staff and delicious food. Several in our party said the Brussel Sprouts were the best they had ever tasted, but everything was tasty so too hard to pick out a favourite

    It is a very good restaurant which offers value for money. The food is high quality with a varied menu, the staff are efficient and friendly and the fittings and furnishings wonderfully eclectic.

    So lovely! Unique vibe, well spaced tables so it didn’t feel too crowded. The food was incredible, and the starters were really good sized.

    Restaurant was very nice. Service was excellent including offering advice and samples of wine to choose from. Food was excellent, and sped up when we were running out of time before the theatre performance. Excellent overall. Would definitely recommend and revisit.

    Easy, calm atmosphere with lovely food. Ideal for pre theatre as Festival Theatre is opposite.

    Have been here a few times as it is convenient for festival theatre. Service always good and friendly. Portion sizes vary greatly peat smoked haddock was over cooked and small one day, whilst a few days later a antipasti starter I had as a main course ample. My husband's mushroom risotto looked like grey gloop with a large lump of goat's cheese on top. The presentation could be better. Having said all that food it very tasty and that is what counts.
