    Delicious dinner - pleased group of two adults and three teens. Everything was delicious. The avocado side salad was a particular delight.

    A very good restaurant in Edinburgh's new town. The service is extremely friendly and the evening tapas-style menu was excellent.

    Very pleased to find this new restaurant on a cold Friday evening when most good tables in the centre of Edinburgh were fully booked at the popular times. Very good food at a moderate price. Good variety in the menu. Small plates an option. Fine choice of wine and a nice atmosphere. It’s very central just on the north side of Queen St Gardens. Easy parking access to central bars or Stockbridge for after dinner entertainment.

    First visit to thsi restaurant. The food needs a lot of improvement as it can not compete with similar establishments in Edinburgh. The meny contains the usual fare one would expect from a bistro-type of restaurant, but the way the food is cooked does not show any skill or flare. The risotto was stodgy rather than creamy and it tasted of nothing. The lemon sole was equally tasteless and did not contain any butter or lemon as a sauce. We did not have any deserts as we were pretty disappointed and in any case there were only two choices - there is no desert menu as such. The noise level was very high despite the fact that we were one of only two tables in the restaurant. This was because the music was set at a very loud level. All in all a pretty disappointing experience.

    Nice little spot with a good menu. I struggled a bit with the vegan burger (I know, I know) but my pals really rated their food (duck, stew, chicken). The summer salad is divine. Things could've been improved - like clearing empty bottles and food coming out at the same time, and we wilted in the heat as there was no aircon inside, but overall if you're not trying out some weird diet I would recommend NTF to you.

    Lovely ambience, can be quite boisterous if busy, but adda to the atmosphere. Attentive and polite staff and the food was excellent. Menu seemed to focus on seasonal and local produce and wasn’t vast, but still with a good range of choice. We ate the sea bream and duck breast for mains and each were cooked perfectly. This was our first time eating here, but looking forward to re-visiting and also trying their other restaurant on the south side. Great addition to Edinburgh’s food scene.

    The burger was really inedible. The meat did not taste good. The food was so salty I could taste salt for hours after. Would not return
