    lovely decor, tentative staff and great food.
    There were 8 of us in the group on a Sunday night before going to a show. We had 4 cards between the group which was accepted with no issues.
    Would certainly recommend and will return. "

    My husband and I ate here last night, and it was a very pleasant experience. Booking was easy, no problem accepting the Tastecard, and great discount. The food was excellent - we had Tomato & Basil soup, followed by 35-day Sirloin Steak. The staff were very polite and attentive, without being obtrusive. Dining in this smart restaurant in the boutique Hotel Indigo is definitely recommended. We would certainly dine here again. "

    " Hotel Indigo is a lovely contemporary styled hotel. We had a meal in its Turquoise Thistle restaurant on a Sunday evening, which was pretty quiet. Staff attention was excellent and the food we had was lovely, cooked to perfection - no problem using our tastecard for our 50% discount. We sat in the lounge afterwards and had cocktails and coffee. Would definitely have a meal here again. "

    This has become one of my favourite places to eat in Edinburgh. The food is delicious, everything we have eaten here has been excellent. The room is beautiful and the staff have been lovely, just the right amount of attentive and friendly.

    The bill at the end of the meal is shockingly cheap each time, given the quality of food. "

    " Myself and 6 friends met for a meal and from the start the attention by the staff was second to none. The food was excellent and a huge plus the plates were hot when required. The menu suited one of our groups who is celiac. Portions excellent and would highly recommend this hotel and restaurant. Decor very pleasing and clean.

    Well done to all the staff. "

An interesting menu featuring modern cooking style with local produce, with good wines and excellent service made our special Anniversary dinner a resounding success. The bar and restaurant are fresh and contemporary in design (no dimly lit cosy nooks) but still have a warm welcoming ambience. All this and 50% off for 6 people - an absolute bargain. Chris "
