Two for £10 meal offer
Starter for 10
As part of their two for £10 meal deal Tiemo staff enjoyed a starter of bruschetta, diced tomato, red onion and garlic drizzled with basil oil. This was delicious. The aromatic flavours were a real pleasure as they left an indelible impression inside our hungry little mouths and stomachs.
The second starter consisted of Caesar salad, anchovies, croutons, cos lettuce and angels own Caesar salad dressing. I found the taste to be superb. Both starters felt very healthy too, which was a nice added bonus.
I enjoyed the pan roasted chicken supreme on grilled haggis, with crushed potatoes, complemented with pepper sauce. A highly unusual, only in Scotland, combination. For someone who’s been eating chicken for more years than I care to remember it would take something special to surprise me when it came to tasty chicken. Respect to the Chef, for s/he more than did that, for the exquisite taste of the succulent chicken-haggis combo was like nothing I’d tasted before.
Our only disappointment with the meal was the nouvelle cuisine sized portions, especially as I’d asked if we’d get good sized portions and were told they would be.
Our second main meal comprised pan fried coley fillet with baby new potatoes, served with a dill cream sauce. This too tasted fantastic, fresh and healthy. Again, it was a shame the portion wasn’t, as promised, bigger.
This resulted in ordering dessert to complete the planned two course meal. We enjoyed peach and ice cream with strawberries, plus sticky toffee pudding with strawberries.
Both were very nice and made for a satisfying three (not two) course meal!
Just as stunning as the meal was the absolutely sensational décor in the restaurant. It felt more like being in a posh hotel bar, than a restaurant. It oozed class all over, from the chandeliers, to classy photography of Scottish celebrities such as Sean Connery, Dennis Law, Rod Stewart and Billy Connolly. Allied to the gorgeous ambiance, the service was with a smile and was very pleasant too.
If it had not been for the lady flyering about Angels Share on Edinburgh’s Princes Street (the end furthest from Waverley Station) we’d have missed this off the beaten track delight. This was a delightful, spur of the moment lunchtime meal experience. I look forward to dining there again.
