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

This restaurant is just wonderful. We had cocktails and dinner here. The cocktails can be served in a old kettle...sounds weird but it's quirky and unique. We loved the Raspberry Mule from our kettle, and it served 4 of us with two glasses each...other cocktails are also amazing and the setting is stunning. The food is delicious and they had... More
