We had a wonderful evening meal in New Chapter. The restaurant is in a more residential area than we were expecting - about 25 minute walk from Edinburgh centre where we were staying but it was worth the walk. The food was amazing - everything is presented so well and tastes wonderful! The only downfall was that we were never asked if we wanted dessert (which we really did!). We eventually got the servers attention and ordered some really lovely dessert but we almost missed out on this! Would be nice to have a cocktail menu also but the wine list was extensive. Overall I would definitely recommend New Chapter. More

Five of us met here for Saturday lunch. Excellent service and really tasty food. One of our group was gluten free and there was a wee bit of a mix up over his selection but it was quickly sorted out and he was very pleased when it arrived. Relaxed atmosphere and attentive staff, will definitely be back again. More

A delightful meal. Delicious food, beautifully presented. Attentive staff. This little gem is a wee bit off the beaten track but well worth it. French cuisine with a Scottish overtone; I loved the piece of tablet with the coffee. More

I was very disappointed on this visit , I have been before 2/3 times and have always had pasta or pizza which are wonderful , one of the best pizzas around . This time I had salmon which was over cooked but far more disappointing was the vegetables that came were frozen and not fresh certainly never expected that from a italian restaurant . If visiting stick to pasta or pizza More

First time eating there since menu changed. Although the food was very good I am not convinced that the new menu is better than before. There was 1 vegetarian in our party and the vegetarian choices were extremely limited. Given the current food attitudes I found this very surprising. Service though was very good and staff very pleasant and helpful. More

Ronaq’s is one of my favourite Indian restaurants in Edinburgh. The food is consistently good and the owner/ staff are always welcoming. Service is always friendly and quick. The restaurant is spacious with modern decor. All in all it is a very pleasant place to eat and good value. They run a loyalty scheme which gives 15% discount every 4th time you eat there. It’s also easy to get parked nearby. More

Super food and in a beautiful Georgian dining room. Food quite inventive and with good local ingredients. Service a little haphazard. Some very experienced others new and didn't know the menu or wine list like they should. Wine list is short and expensive but well chosen. Great range of whisky of course! More
