Salt of the Earth, Falkirk

There is a restaurant in Falkirk, Salt of the Earth, that is in my opinion well worth the drive from Edinburgh. 
Their Southern French and Scottish inspired menu has got something for everybody's taste and their clientele on a Wednesday night was a mixed bunch: young couples, families with small children, older people, couple of birthday parties... Luckily we arrived just before 7pm and got to order from the 'Early Evening Menu' which offers two courses for £12.95 or three for £16.95.
Mr Lovable had a starter of 'Warm goats cheese with beetroot carpaccio' and when it arrived it made me wish that I'd ordered a starter as well... I got to taste it though and it was as good as it looked! For mains we both had 'Tiger prawn and chorizo brochette, saffron scented rice with salsa verde' and it was superb.
  And my dessert, 'Sticky toffee pudding' was warm and perfectly moist served with delicious, smooth vanilla ice-cream that tasted home made.
 Our waitress was absolutely perfect, food gorgeous and very reasonably priced, atmosphere warm, welcoming and relaxed... I am already looking forward going back.
service was spot-on

amazing toilets and decor

beautiful presentation
