Despite its vanishingly little frontage, Angels strikes deeply into the flank of the Royal Mile, broadening out into a low-ceilinged, personal room overlooking Warriston Close. It’s a tremendously professional operation, effortlessly guaranteed and quietly confident from off. There’s a little but choose cocktail selection to seek advice from and newly cooked breads quickly arrives to come with your choice generating. And it also’s quite difficult: there’s imagination and flair here. A parsley root velouté with spinach and ricotta tortellini is a smooth and deeply flavoured piece, while spears of crisply charred mackerel tend to be artfully served with chicory, apple and a mild curry sauce. A primary of lamb with spiced dried beans, aubergine, shallots and baby turnip is only a little workaday regardless of the imaginative accompaniments, but a rib-eye steak is matched with a deliciously herby tomato, a tangy, creamy peppercorn sauce plus some crisp fries. Winning the dessert wars is the ginger, honey and pear cheesecake. Light, meltingly smooth and carefully spiced, it's a fantastic finish.
