Although Madogs presents itself as a restaurant I'd rather say it is a pub --based on its food. I've dine there once, and although I really enjoyed the atmosphere I didn't find the food memorable.

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many

clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
