Great value and quality

We visited Tigerlily as part of a work outing/team building evening. Staff were friendly, very helpful and very pleasant. I was so surprised at the value offered by the venue as I thought it would be overly pricey. Their offers throughout the week are brilliant and I cannot fault them! Food was... read more

Have been to Tigerlily on a few occasions before and always had a good time. Came for afternoon tea which was lovely! Was here on a Saturday and it was packed as usual, it's a little annoying that you can't book tables for drinks (only food) but i understand at the same time. Always lovely cocktails and although you wait... More

I had organised a dinner for 25 of my colleagues with Tigerlilly. Tammie, the Event Manager, was an absolute delight to deal with throughout the entire booking process. On the night we were looked after by Lynnette who couldn't of done more for us, our glasses were always topped up and we never needed to ask for anything. Lynnette and... More

Spent 5 days in Edinburgh and tigerlily was by far the best place we ate.... Brilliant service and even better food. We enjoyed all 3 courses and found it to be excellent standard. Plus it has an amazing cocktail bar just through the entrance if your after a relaxing few drinks.

The atmosphere is great and the place is very stylish, but I cannot say the same for the food. Definitely overpriced as the food is very average in addition to not be properly cooked. Will not return.

The positives: inside it is very modern and high end. It is also very laid out. The staff are nice and very jolly. Our scallops starters were cooked to perfection and the fondue dessert was wonderful. Negatives: How you manage to overcook a rare fillet steak is beyond me. As stated above the staff are very jolly, but when I... More

This is a good bar however the front bar does not have a lot of room, don't go if you wish to talk to other people in your party as music is loud.

Visited for last minute late evening meal. Surroundings were lovely..lively atmosphere. Waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. I had mussels to start and frankly they were the best I had ever tasted...seriously... Mains of chicken and the special of lamb rump. The chicken was excellent and the lamb rump was tasty but the portion size was a little small. Overall, a... More

TigerLily is an Edinburgh institution, will always be a popular venue and a place to be seen. However, does it 'walk the walk' in terms of offering excellent service and good quality food (ie the basics in Hospitality)....I would have to say no!! Aesthetically pleasing to the eye, I must say that this is a beautifully decorated venue and 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.
