We had a great night here with 20 plus people to celebrate a friends birthday. The food was as expected and was value for money. Don't go here if you expect great food , more hard rock standard but that's ok. Service was good but the place is too busy to allow the staff to do more than they can.

I booked Tigerlily for afternoon tea on Saturday. We were eventually shown to a table which hadn't been set properly... There was no teacup! We ordered the deluxe tea, thinking it came with a bottle of prosecco, it was actually just a glass each. When our food came we were really disappointed by the fact that there were so few... More

We decided to have pre dinner drinks in the first bar on the left, the barmen were busy making cocktails but did not even acknowledge that i was standing there. They displayed a attitude that can only be described as rude. On going to dinner i found that the restaurant also has a bar which was very loud, a large... More

I was here with a group of friends recently, and it is a lovely place - the decor and atmosphere in here was lovely. They have the most amazing smoking room too, it's and outside-inside room, and is a great step up from standing out on the street. We only had a selection of the platters that are on offer,... More

Having visited a few years ago and knowing of its good reputation, we popped in for cocktails when in Edinburgh then decided to stay for dinner as the menu appealed. Two sections to the review - bar then restaurant as they were very different! The bar and drinks. We found a spot at a high table and sat down expecting... More

Was in Tigerlilly yesterday afternoon for an Afternoon Tea hen do. Yes, there were 24 of us and yes it was the last weekend of the festival so Edinburgh was really busy. However, the wait for our food was totally ridiculous. Our table was booked for 3.30pm and it was almost 4.45 before any food arrived. We were sitting on... More

My daughter took me here for an afternoon tea treat for my birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed the experienced, the food (sandwiches and cakes) were delicious and as another reviewer said, we had cocktails served in an old kettle. The surroundings were lovely, we enjoyed our time before it started to get very busy and packed out. All in all I... More

Dined here today for lunch and we were not offered the 2 dine for £15.00 menu. It was not until we have arrived home tonight that we have reviewed the menu and we feel very let down. The choices that we made were both on the set menu and we feel duped into paying circa £23.00 for two main courses... More
