    La Garrigue, on Jeffrey Street, on Thursday.

    Probably my favourite French restaurant in Edinburgh. There were several options for every course I would have been happy going with. The ones we did go for were prepared and presented very well. Great food and wines from the owner/chef's home region of Languedoc.

    Given the quality of what's on the menu and the wine list I think it's tremendous value for money.

    The Table on Dundas Street.

    Not long opened and it's utterly superb. It's a nice concept, 10 covers at 1 table with the chef presenting each course, it's a set tasting menu.

    I think Edinburgh has it's next Michelin Star in waiting. The chef trained with amongst others Martin Wishart, Gordon Ramsay, Anthony Garlando and Adriano Cavagnini. He also happens to be a really nice guy into the bargain. I went a couple of weeks back as I was involved in supplying him a lot of his crockery and glassware and was intrigued at the concept. I wasn't disappointed and Tripadvisor seems to agree as it's shot straight to number 1 in the reviews.

    Glad to see someone appreciating it, Sean is a pal of mine so thought I was maybe being a bit biased towards the place as it's genuinely one of the best places I've eaten

    I'd never heard of The Table until Friday last week, received an email from TripAdvisor with a link to their "10 best restaurants in Edinburgh", and The Table was number 1.

    Now I'm trying to organise a time to go, looks excellent.

    The Riparian Rooms was our choice for the weekend for a table of 6.

    The service was slow to start with and didn't get any quicker!

    The starters were good and I thought things were looking up. The mussels and the tempura crab were excellent as were the other selections. The 'special', sirloin steak which 2 of us had were far from special but the others who had a various other dishes were happy enough. Only two of us ordered sweet, the sticky toffee pudding would have been sent back but the waitress never came near enough to catch her attention, which she apologised for later, much later!

    Not the best experience for 200!

    I live close by and it never seems that busy. I've only had a drink there but my wife has eaten there a couple of times and said it was only OK.

    I went to Maison Bleue Restaurant, opposite the Bow Bar, Victoria Street, with 3 buddies for lunch last week.

    Seemed to be the owner and his partner in attendance looking after everyone. In my opinion they seemed a little precious! Don't ask me what that means.

    If you buy 2 mains off the lunch menu, 15 or so for 2 courses, you get one free, effectively a tenner off.

    We all had the very succulent mussels, the best I've had for some considerable time. It was a good choice.

    I had beef cheeks, a couple of the guys had the fish dish, I can't remember what the fourth had but we all agreed we had all made excellent choices.

    The other 3 had coffees, they could have been poured by a spirit measure into tiny wee cups! I canny be doing with that, my ample nose needs to get in the mug lol. They were delighted though and more back slapping they'd made a great choice!

    2 bottles of wine, 3 bottles of cider, great value at 120 which included a handsome tip!

    We then went to the pub till around 10pm, bloody good day!

    Been in quite a few times for lunch and always found it pretty good, was going to give it a try one evening soon but maybe not now

    Just been to Queens Spice in South Queensferry and can highly recommend it. Good size portions and very tasty food.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

    Need somewhere for a bit of a late lunch in Edinburgh next Saturday. Needs to be child-friendly (albeit a well behaved 8 year old with an appetite like his dad!) and within walking distance of Waverley. Not TOO expensive. Soccer Saturday preferred but not essential. Go.

    I desperately wanted to go there when I was in Skye but my girlfriend is a bit fussy and as a result we can never go to top restaurants as every course always involve a things she doesn't want. She only likes chicken and fish, and "the fish always comes with stuff that isn't chips".

    Went to zicos recently, it was good. Fantastic service and as Much meat as you desire for 20 quid. The topside beef was amazing, as was the chili pork and the chicken hearts were surprisingly good too.
    You have my sincerest condolences. Must take the patience of a Buddha to not want to just force feed her steak, pepper sauce and chips and go "there, that wasn't so bad was it!!"

    Last time I was home I went for a curry in a place a couple of doors down from The Ventoux Pub. Name escapes me but it was good, a decent range of regional dishes that went beyond the Korma/Jalfrezi/Bhuna triumvate (though they had them as well)

    Had a blast from the past at Guru(Guru Balti in the old days) still great food and the biggest nans ever!

    Must still be pretty popular as it was packed and the amount of deliveries going out was unbelievable.

    The Omni at the top of Leith Walk has a few places, Slug and Lettuce, La Tasca etc that are reasonable and family friendly

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    Nonna's Kitchen in Morningside - nice but pricey. They do the main pasta dishes as starters so I had a pasta with cream, mushrooms and Italian sausage. Was tasty but the sausage was the thinnest slices of sausage you have seen, difficult to tell what was slice of mushroom or a slice of sausage. The wife had bread and olives which she said was nice. I had veal for my main which was something I rarely eat, was nice but as I have rarely had veal I am not sure what to compare it against. My wife had king prawn linguine which again looked good and the prawns were nice and large.

    No room for desert but they had a good selection.

    The list of specials is extensive but as the waiter reeled them off you had forgotten what he has said 2 minutes ago.

    Bill with a pint of Peroni and a G&T was just short of 65. It was mobbed though so must be very popular.

    Was at al dente on easter road last week with my mum. First time I've been there in over 5 years. I liked what they've done with the decor in that time and the staff were really friendly and welcoming. Both had steak but in 2 different sauces. Was really good and well accompanied by a glass of Italian red. Fully recommend a visit.

    Aye. Doesn't do pizzas and the pastas and other dishes they do seem to be ones that would be less well known here I think. Really enjoyable and as I said the staff were fantastic.

    Heading to one square at the Sheraton in festival square. I went to Le escargot bleu on broughton street last month. Fantastic cosy little French restaurant, really worth checking out.

    Hope to visit Purslane in Stockbridge and Onedine in the next few weeks.

    bit different seen as its a fast food place but was at wannaburger and its went downhill so much its unbelievable. hadnt been in around a year and since then its went from quality fast food burgers to to being inedible. Clearly trying to do things the cheap now as the burgers are now near enough a peely white colour and taste rank, cant be much real meat content in them at all
