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.

we've dined in this restaurant on a number of occasions. We've never been disappointed with the quality of the food and this visit was no different. We really enjoyed our food but there was a DJ playing in the middle of the restaurant. Loud music is not conducive to a relaxing meal. I fear we have dined in this restaurant... More

If you're looking for a great posh pub in Edinburgh you have to go to the tigerlily! You can find nice music, a lot of posh people, good cocktails and a lot of room where you can meet and chat with other people! I'll come back there into the next trip in Edinburgh!

Came here for cocktails, which were very nice and at a reasonable price (£7-8) but this is perhaps not what I look for in a drinking place. Pink fluorescent lights on bright white background is the decor and the vibes in here are very much giggly girls for cocktails. If you dream of being on the only way is Essex,... More

We took full advantage of the happy hour menu at Tigerlily on Friday evening - the cocktails were very well priced at £4.50 which was a bargain! We had several rounds of drinks here. The staff were very friendly and attentive without being pushy. Would thoroughly recommend coming here for drinks.
