REVIEW – The Spice Pavilion, Dundas Street

*****

Edinburgh Spotlight Recommended!

The Spice Pavilion – Truly worthy of the five star rating By Chiara Pannozzo If there is one thing that Edinburgh doesn’t have a shortage of it’s Indian restaurants.  But if you’re still making your way around the myriad of curry houses call off the search.

REVIEW – The Blackbird

*****

By Chiara Pannozzo It’s no secret, I’m a huge fan of Treacle.

Such is my relationship with Treacle, and at […]

REVIEW – Food at the Old Chain Pier, Newhaven (reopened)

*****

Old Chain Pier reopens with new decor, friendly service and impressive food Whatever image and thoughts you had of the Old Chain Pier before May 2012, leave them behind. Their doors were reopened yesterday after a much needed face lift and we were impressed as soon as we walked through the door. After a warm […]

REVIEW – Charlie and Evelyn’s Table



Edinburgh Spotlight Recommended!
