Popped in for cocktails

Popped in yesterday afternoon after shopping for a cocktail. Really nice place with friendly bar staff. Cocktails are a wee bit pricey but were good and there is a big selection. We didn't have food but couple next to us had oysters and langoustine which looked nice. We left just as it was... read more

Friend and I visited for a champagne afternoon tea and had a fantastic time. Started with a chilled glass of fizz and moved on to beautiful sandwiches, scones and cakes, with pots of tea that were kept topped up. Great service. Even on a busy Saturday afternoon, we weren't rushed on. Lively bar, lots of life so don't go if... More

I attended Tigerlily as part of a hen party. We'd booked in advance for a set menu and cocktail class. Disappointed on arrival to find it was a 2 course rather than 3 course deal. The menu option was limited which resulted in almost the entire party opting for the burger. When the food arrived all of the chips were... More

My wife and I had tea here, something high on her list while in Edinburgh. The cost was more affordable than most classy places in town but still pricey. The food was great with delicious sandwiches and desserts with chocolate sauce, but the tea selection is limited. The setting is beautiful and a cool place to be, however looking over... More

I ate here while on a Saturday night out in a group of seven women. Our table was great, a round booth meant that conversation involved the whole group rather than shouting up and down a long table. Tigerlily has a bustling ambience, with lots of people there starting their night out in Edinburgh with a meal or cocktails. Our... More

Good food but way overpriced. You are paying for beautiful surroundings. Did not like that bar staff approached you if you were not having anything to drink.

Had lunch and cocktails and couldn't fault either. Had the two main courses for £15 deal and the food was excellent and very good value for money. Service was quick and staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient.

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
