Went for the first time with a friend, who had recommended. I'll give them this much; the food was 'okay' – and that's as far as I'd go. George Street is teeming with great restaurants; Café Andaluz, Amarone, The Dome... and I can't say Candy...More

Had dinner here with a small group yesterday. Good cocktail menu, very reasonable prices. Our group had pizza’s, burgers and sandwiches with a variety of chips. Food was fresh, hot and service prompt and friendly. Also well priced. Well worth a try.

Popped in for a quick lunch with a business associate. We were served really quickly, we both ordered sourdough pizza which was fresh, served fast and tasted fab. Washed down by a cheeky Toasted Marshmallow & vanilla shake - who's counting the calories! AMAZING! Great...More

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
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
