The Spanish couple who served us had a great approach and showed excellent customer service. Very attentive, quick, efficient, clean, very helpful and also compliments to the chef from South Africa for the attractive, flavoursome and clean British dishes. This shows how much they all care for the customer from our point of view. Thanks!

They were so good I told them so and one guy told us he was working there whilst also performing in the Fringe Festival, so not a professional but someone who takes pride in his work. We had the venison burgers which were very tasty and ample. The whisky cocktails looked good but... More

After visiting the whisky experience up the road, we were up for Scottish food, and some regional whisky tasting. Royal McGregor was up for both, with good selection and friendly service. Also the food portions were very generous!

This restaurant/pub was recommended by a local for the food. All meals were excellent, but the service was exceptionally attentive and friendly. They also had a kids menu. We will definitely return.

We had an excellent meal here tonight. Spur of the moment decision as the rain started again. The haggis was delicious and the steak and ale pie excellent. We had excellent service even though it was really packed

In a perfect position on the Royal Mile there's this little place where you can eat delicious Scottish cuisine. Average prices considering the location.
