We went to Otro on Sat 15th April in the evening. There were four of us and the menu selection suited our different tastes. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the beef cheeks, whilst I had the chicken which was served on a lovely green pea mash. The others had mussels, macaroni with cauliflower, soup and fish and chips. The house white wine was lovely and great value. We were all really impressed by the standard of the food and the amazingly attentive service! We will be back! More

Here at Toby Carvery Edinburgh West, we believe there's only one way to do our beloved British roast – and that's properly. Every spud is checked by hand and ruffled for extra crunch. All of our meat is slow-cooked and basted to succulent perfection. And our Yorkshires are freshly made in our kitchens and served crisp, fluffy and piping-hot to your plate. That's what makes us the home of the roast.More

At Coro we believe chocolate should be a fun and sharing experience. We don’t claim to be master chocolatiers, in fact its quite the opposite. Our aim is to give customers their chocolate fix but not just from your standard bar of chocolate. We pour our chocolate over freshly made pancakes, into our buttery crepes and drizzled onto of our fluffy waffles. If thats not enough we’ll give you a fondue to dunk some fresh fruit, cake or sweets into melted chocolate with a hot chocolate like no other to wash it all down.More
