My husband and I had initially called at Tigerlily for a lunchtime drink, and as it was a lovely sunny day, we sat at one of the tables outside. After a short while, the family at the next table ordered some seafood & the smell was too tempting to resist! We went ahead & ordered the seafood platter & some... More

We had one night here in January. The staff could not have been more helpful, even conjuring up breakfast before a very early flight. The room was beautiful, complete with four poster bed and amazing bathroom, sadly the fire wouldn't work but otherwise perfect! Very well cooked meal in the restaurant, great service here too but as others have said... More

I went with a group of friends and sat in a booth which is great if you have a larger party. The menu is fantastic, so many lovely meals it was hard to choose. The atmosphere on Saturday afternoon was brilliant, really busy but with a modern, fun feeling. The decor is cool and contemporary with loads of funky furniture... More

Was given a luxury voucher for afternoon tea at TigerLily but how disappointing the experience turned out to be. We declined the cocktails but we were given no alternative until we asked if we could just have more tea. The scones were "raw"inside - when returned - barley an apology given. I feel that my friend wasted her money on... More

Have frequented this bar and restaurant many times in the past but will definitely not return. Waiter was extremely rude and full of his own self importance with no care for us the customers. When I complained to the Bar Manageress about our lack of good service she seemed very young and in experienced and unable to listen to or... More

It was too dark, restaurant staff were rude and the food was grossly over - priced for poor quality. I took my mum here as a treat, it was a lovely day but Tigerlilly really let us down The cocktails were excellent though (pricey) and my mum and I had a great night once we left the restaurant area.

My wife and elder daughter were recently in Edinburgh for the day and they popped into this bar/restaurant for adrink. The first choice that they had to make was where to sit as there were several areas in which to do so. Then they had to choose their cocktails from a list of over 60. If I had been with... More

Had booked dinner for my partners birthday. It did not disappoint. The atmosphere is always electric. The design of the place is classy and modern. A great place to spend an evening. Our meal was delicious. The service was fantastic!! After the meal we move into the bar area and enjoyed some really great cocktails too! Overall, another great experience... More

We went to this restaurant on SAT 1ST MARCH. I was disappointed that they didn't mention we would be sitting at a long table shared by strangers. As luck would have it the seats right next to us where empty. The music was so loud we had to lean over our food to talk. I felt like I was eating... More

I visited here with my Husband with an Itison voucher. Had the Spanish Charcuterie & Cheese Board + a very large glass of wine plus added some prawns which were to die for. Lovely nibbles in lovely surroundings with lovely staff. What more could you ask for ??? Very enjoyable experience. Have bought another 2 vouchers to repeat. Very good... More
