This is a little gem of a restaurant, run by actual French people and serving inexpensive quality food. The dining room is small and quite cramped, but with a fantastic ambience. Perfect place to plan a revolution!

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
