Best steak ever!

Had a lovely meal at Tigerlily. The food was excellent, the scallop starter was beautiful but the fillet steak was even better. Service was great and the restaurant was really busy. The prices were in my opinion quite expensive but you don't mind that when the quality is so good.

This is the place to be seen, very, very busy on a Friday night, lots of areas to sit, stand and be squashed into! I am sure it is great Sunday to possibly Wednesday but then it does become a "cattle market!" We did eat and the food was very good but forget talking to anyone as you cant hear... More

Food was excellent couldn't fault it. I had chicken wings, my wife had pate. Mains I opted for the haddock, lovely and fresh. My wife... More

I booked a hen do at tiger lily for my best friend, as her maid of honour I wanted everything to be perfect. Upon entering we were told to remove our sashes and the bride her veil. Pretty pathetic given we had spent over £900 on the meal and a cocktail making class. The food was ok but it did... More

George street is a good location and the bar in this hotel is achingly trendy...very very popular with the after work drinking crowd. We went for dinner. The food is good, although some of the things we ordered had finished. However although the girl who served us was lovely, very nice and helpful, the service was very slow. I think... More

This is a very lively, modern & stylish venue. We found the staff very welcoming & friendly. Afternoon tea was served in the conservatory, where as it was a very wet & miserable day we were delighted to be seated by the roaring fire! Starting with a glass of Prosecco we then went on to enjoy the afternoon tea delights.... More

Food and cocktails were fantastic. Had the lobster which was amazing and my hubby and I tried an oyster for the first time which was fun. Had to leave as a very noisy hen party were close by. After 2 hours of shrieking we folded.

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.
