We say

Long before Modern Scottish became the hottest thing on the Edinburgh dining scene the Stac Polly people were offering the best of local ingredients with a creative twist. Their bistro, handily located just off the Royal Mile, continues the tradition with honest, simple food that is well cooked with a little imagination. The dining spaces are relaxed and welcoming – choose from a window table as you come in or an even cosier space in the back. Walls are bedecked in Scottish art and prints, with the focus staying very much local on the plate with the likes of smoked salmon and Arbroath Smokie roulade spiced up with a hint of wasabi mayonnaise, or five spiced salmon, black bean cake, broccoli, lemon and chive crème fraiche.
