When a world class chef launches his first restaurant, the standards are high and the pressure to achieve is even higher. As expected from the renowned Chef Paul Tamburrini, he has exceeded expectations with a signature blend of French cuisine coupled with the finest Scottish ingredients. Dining here is unique, as the attention to detail and passion for locally-sourced produce and game gives the team an edge, allowing them to provide an exceptional experience for the diner.

In the spirit of fine dining, the wine list is extensive; ranging from classics such as Muscadet and Chablis to more niche varietals like Assertyko from Santorini. With over 40 varietals from the old world and the new, and a cracking library wine list, they cater to all tastes, whether you're after an easy going Pinot Grigio or you're a connoisseur looking for something to excite your palate.

"Like everything else here, all the ingredients were the best versions of themselves, like Tamburrini is some kind of life coach for food". Gaby Soutar The Scotsman food and Drink

"I can now totally understand the draw of coming for the restaurant and staying the night - I didn't feel like I was eating in a hotel, but it did make me want to book a room. This could be a new way to choose where to stay on holiday…"
