    Very average service. Seemed very disorganised despite not having many people. Espresso martinis not very good and then forgot to put through our second order. Considering there were not many people this was suboptimal. Would not return

    Typically noisy, busy Friday evening bar, quieter upstairs

    This is a bar venue with comfortable casual banquet seating, noisy but in the right way with a happy vibe. The menu features traditional Scottish fare presented in a contemporary style and a good range of Scottish beer is available. This homesick Scot could not have been happier.

    The burgers are great, but the service are close to none compare to couple weeks ago. The 1/2 price does not mean much given the lunch time special

    The place is good for a team work lunch and my colleagues seemed to be indifferent about their food but definitely not somewhere to go if you're looking for a decent vegetarian option. The only burger option they have is a mushroom burger and it's dreadful. Barely any mushroom, no fillings and mostly all bun. The place is a good option for those looking for a cheap eat + an escape from the corporate CBD around them - but the menu probably needs some refining.

    A very relaxed atmosphere and good burgers - particularly the beef burgers (I'd recommend those over the veggie burger). The atmosphere was quiet and low-key.

    The burgers were good. Bread and fries not quite as fresh but it was still pretty good. Service was good too. All and all not bad

    The $15 burger and beer lunch deal is far away the best in Melbourne. The burger is always cooked perfectly! Love it!

    Lunch Special for $15 bucks is a steal. Nice Tasty burger (they have like 8 options, some with scottish traditional food like haggis or black pudding) , large serve of good string fries and a drink Can't go wrong with that. if you hungry at lunch, give it a go I don't believe they are staffed to handle a full house at lunch , but we had only 3 tables , so it was alright. Nice scottish girl did a great job. Will return for sure

    Decent burgers ...service was slow and we waited for an hour for one dish! The extra round of drinks in the house were appreciated

    A limited "Scottish beer selection" but disappointing that they ran out after 2 bottles of beer of one of them... I have to say that the haggis was very disappointing - essentially a haggis patty, which was quite nice itself, but served on top of thick-cut chips and some salad on the side - far from the traditional "haggis with neeps and tatties". Which I've had before at this same place. The staff were mostly friendly and helpful, though one seemed like she didn't want to be there - not long after she started her shift.

    I did enjoy the meal here however the service was pretty average considering we were there quite late and there were only a few tables filled. Young lady behind the desk sitting on her phone the entire time.

    An unusual but pleasant surprise tucked away in Melbourne's CBD. Small, but intimate and worth a visit.

    Perfect fish and chips – better than homemade. The mint chilli coleslaw was lovely. The wagyu beef in the Highlander Burger was very tasty; however, it was a little salty overall. Very lovely staff.
