Tigerlily is a gem of a place. The food and ambiance provide the backdrop for a very special evening. The service was attentive and the whole atmosphere was alive and energetic. An amazing place!

Lovely place with a great atmosphere. Have had some great nights out here with my husband. We always pop in when we are out that way. Have not stayed yet but planning to do so sometime soon.

A first rate enjoyable experience on our first night in Edinburgh. We are staying at the Tigerlily so it made sense to try the restaurant on our first night here. A choice we didn't regret. Everyone was friendly, the waitress was lovely, polite, and helpful. The Menu gave you a good choice of dishes, and prices. Our starter dish (roasted... More

Had a couple of after dinner drinks in here recently. It's an absolutely beautiful place and huge too. The staff were very helpful and attentive. The drinks are pricey but we were on holiday so didn't mind. They did have some specials on drinks though so I'm sure we could have had cheaper if we wanted to order from that.... More

We went there after dinner on a Tuesday night. The place was about 20% full, so no long waits at the bar and plenty of seating to choose from. The lighting was good, plenty of colours and not too bright. Drinks menu - excellent for a variety of beers, wine etc. We ended up getting table service for the last... More

A large group came for a family event - the atmosphere and décor was perfect, the service was fantastic - really friendly staff - and the food was super - not a single complaint and we all cleared our plates - the £15 for two courses deal is fantastic value, and there is a great choice of dishes. There were... More

We went for lunch here on a Saturday shopping trip. It was my first visit, although my wife had been before. The atmosphere and service was excellent, with a varied menu. Decor was great, with each area having it's own design. Enjoyed the burgers, cheesecake and creme brulee. Will definitely return.

I went to Tigerlily with my parents and my girlfriend for my graduation lunch. What a spectacular place. Very funky and beautifully laid out. After being seated in a lovely booth and our waitress congratulated me which was an excellent touch...considering I was in full highland dress (kilt and waistcoat etc)! Our food was in a different class. Superb, amazing,... More

The Monaco cocktail is delicious for a pre-dinner drink :) We were seated promptly for dinner, and had a lovely waitress. We had to change our food order, as we had been given the regular menu rather than the residents menu which was a little disappointing. The cauliflower and wholegrain mustard soup was very tasty though, and my partner had... More
