I was recommended this place by a friend at work prior to my trip to Edinburgh so we went here for lunch one day. Firstly this place is upstairs with an interesting staircase and general decor; mostly sticking to the dog theme, I personally enjoyed the ambiance this created. The menu is very interesting but we both opted for the... More

We are visiting Edinburgh and a friend recommended this place however after visiting I don't know why. Good execution the food ingredients-wise was so mismatched, trying to be interesting, but everything missed the mark. The only satisfying part of the meal, including appetizers dinner and dessert, was my beer ... and that came in a bottle. Cute location, sweet waitstaff,... More

Really enjoyed the food - rabbit was delicious. However we found the service to be abrupt, cocky and not very welcoming. Service was rushed and he mentioned Trip Advisor even before we got our coats off. Sorry to say but he puts us off going back there which is a shame because we enjoyed our meal. Fully expecting a negative... More

I went here for my birthday meal with my family. The staff were very welcoming, we were served very quickly, they had an interesting menu. All of the food that my party ordered was delicious and we had a great time here. Certainly worth a visit if your taking a trip to Edinburgh.

We came for a mid-week lunch and the place was pretty busy. The decor was cool and eclectic (although it could have been more comfortable) The menu was well chosen and the food was delicious.

Beautiful surroundings, very dog friendly ! I had homemade mac cheese and it was scrummy ! Perfect size! My friend had kedgeree without the egg as they were incredibly accommodating towards her diary requirements. Really pleasant Irish waitress and very very affordable!

I have eaten here a few times now and each time I have come away feeling very satisfied indeed. It is best that you phone ahead and reserve a table as I have indeed turned up having not made a booking and have had to resort to going somewhere else instead. My recent visit was on a Sunday lunchtime (16th... More

Our first visit to The Dogs and, given some other reviewers' comments about the decor, we weren't sure what to expect. We decided it was a bit like shabby chic, but also with some quirky touches. We liked it. The main rooms are bustling, noisy at times and crowded but we enjoyed a quiet-ish corner table and had a very... More

Visited this place after some friends suggested it as being really good. Although some dishes were interesting eg., the beef liver, the rest were average at best. The restaurant's decoration reminded me of starbucks -not even the one on princes street! On top the service was really bad: the waiter literally threw the cutlery on the table and let us... More
