Very accomodating

Good experience with things like moving tables and specific dietary requirements, but I'd say one member of the waiting staff was pretty grumpy. Lovely food, I couldn't fault it, but extremely pricey. Great cocktails and very friendly and well informed bartender.

Tiger Lily is my go to place when out with the Mrs. Somewhere a bit smarter and I have always loved the look and feel of the place. I was in last night and what can I say? Not sure what they are now trying to market the place as but I stayed for one drink and left. Tiger Lily... More

A perfect spot for an afternoon cocktail, a glass of wine or sea food. The mussels were just perfect! Get there early on weekends, as the place gets busy!

My daughter and I decided to eat here after walking around and exploring the city. TIgerlily is located on George street, along with many other fabulous and trendy hotels/restaurants/bars and we thought the menu and restaurant looked neat. We were seated way in the back kind of by ourselves (maybe we didn't look trendy enough! :-)). We ordered the huge... More

A unique, complete joy of a place. Interesting decor and furnishings with an outside dining space. For one who doesn't usually eat breakfast I couldn't resist the excellent menu Superb staff, food and drink - what more could a person want :)

Whilst visiting Edinburgh my friend & I had lunch outside on a Sunday, ask about the special lunch deal. Many City centre restaurants don't do deals during the Festival but I was delighted they did. This is the second time I've been (I live in Yorkshire & was visiting) it is stunning inside & worth a visit.

Myself, my sister and two friends visited this hotel last Friday. My friend who lives in Edinburgh had booked the hotel for afternoon tea(deluxe) @3pm. As it was raining in the city we decided to go down to the hotel early and have a drink before our afternoon tea. It was a girly weekend and we were having great fun... 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.
