Not really my kind of cocktail bar - more mainstream really. If you want a serious cocktail there are better places in town.

I went back in February and ordered muscles. Was extremely disappointed as they where so over cooked the shells where broken into the sauce and each mouthful had part of the shell in it. Very disappointing as I used to go all the time. Haven't been back since.

My friend and I went to Tiger Lily on an Itison voucher and were absolutely underwhelmed at how mediocre it was. The staff definitely didn't treat us with friendliness and courtesy. I have used Itison vouchers on many occasions and have never been made to feel inferior to those paying full price. But Tiger Lily staff could not be included.... More

Fun bar turns into a nightclub at night. I went for lunch with friends, upmarket nice seafood but ship on the shore is is better. I had linguistines and oysters which were good a little on the pricey side. This is more upmarket bling atmosphere dining , ship on the shore is more like a gastro up more relaxed great... More

I came here with friends for lunch and cocktails on a Wednesday afternoon. For a start, the place is like a glamorous tardis - it's huge! I liked the decor and layout of the restaurant/bar, huge tables and very spacious. My friend came with her 1 year old and the staff were helpful and made a fuss over him. The... More

I have yet to find a restaurant that gives you exactly the same if you were not using a discount voucher. We arrived to have afternoon tea with a watering can of Belvedere Vodka Cocktails. The staff were friendly, but we followed the waitress to the back of the building, where most six people had the same deal. (We knew... More

Me , my partner and two other family members visited here due to having a £26 itson voucher that my family member had got from itson and it was very good and well worth the value. Only fault would be that one of the main dishes which was a chicken salad , the chicken was slightly over cooked but overall... More

We visited Edinburgh (one of my favourite cities in the world) and came across Tigerlily. In our short time here we ended up visiting quite a few times ! A wonderful charismatic place with a young yet sophisticated feel. Separate areas for drinks only or dining and all decorated just to my taste. We had the afternoon Tea on our... More

My friend and I had greatly anticipated our afternoon tea with cocktails at Tiger Lily. From the offset it did not live up to our perception of how it would be. Firstly on entering we went to the bar which appeared to be our first port of call to speak to someone about our 4pm booked afternoon tea through an... More

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.
