    Been a couple of times. It's very good. Well worth a visit. I've not actually been to La Favorita so can't compare but the pizzas are great.

    Leith one on Constitution Street is very good. Finally tried Market Street a few weeks back and no comparison. Staff were up their own erse and food was bang average despite being a similar menu.

    Tbh even having enjoyed the Leith one I wouldn't say it's the best steak in Edinburgh.
    I can't eat steak after having this. Nothing since has been close.

    We tried McDonald's at Fife Leisure Park. Their Big Mac burger came served in a shabbily branded cardboard box, which was functional rather than serving any kind of aesthetic purpose. Handily, the lid of the box made for an excellent makeshift bowl for the large fries served with the burger.
    The fries, infused with lashings of salt rather than curry and that, are hit and miss. The first ones served were crisp but by the time we got to the end of them they were soggy, limp, and cold. The addition of the barbeque sauce saved the day, its tangy sharpness complimenting the fries perfectly.
    My youngest chose the packet of six chicken nuggets, the batter was chewy rather than crispy, and I felt a distinct lack of pride in their preparation. She munched then all with a good helping of ketchup, uniquely served up in a wee paper thimble thing, from a pump at a nearby stand.
    I had the South African Stack, which was lopsided in its preparation, so the majority of the sauce hung over one side of the burger while the other side stayed dry. I was picking bits of salad out of my teeth for half an hour afterwards and was left disappointed with the burger.

    The meal did initially fill everyone up, but after a short while the kids were asking for something else to eat and they'll probably have some digestive comeback following the meal.

    Two stars.

    New Sushi/Japenese place in Corstorphine seems to be getting rave reviews from the locals.

    There's only one thing better than a Hibs calendar and that's two Hibs calendars

    It's very good,pizzas are excellent but then again so are the ones at La Favorita nothing in it really. Worth a visit if you haven't been though.

    Went to Pomegranate just off Leith Walk with work last night. Annoyed because the food (party menu so a big selection) looked quite good but I was too steaming to even want to eat! What I did eat was pretty decent though.

    Down in Leeds next weekend and tried for No.50 on that list, The Man Behind The Curtain but it was fully booked. Own fault for leaving it until yesterday to try and book!

    Going to the Crafthouse instead, will report back

    Do fancy L'Enclume though, did you stay there as well?
    I stayed over there a few years back. The food was awesome as you say, and I donít think itís too bad a price compared to other restaurants which arenít on the same level - probably because of its location though.

    Rogan also has a bistro in the village, Rogan and co, which is where you get breakfast if you stay over, which was also amazing. The b&b was £99 then, probably more now though.

    Spice Lounge Kitchen on Drum Brae. Yummy food and decent pint too and not pricey. Used to be The Rainbow. Believe me this is an improvement!
