Brothers Lukasz and Bartek Jedrejek are in the kitchen, a biomedical scientist and a Scran & Scallie chef bring a real gem to Edinburgh’s old town. Go there for creative dishes using quality Scottish produce plus an absolute steal of a lunch menu at £13.95 for two courses. We’ve recently reviewed for Olive magazine and gave it the big thumbs up.
