Lots of great food options, something for everyone. Very popular even at mid-afternoon, which is a good sign!

Came here and enjoyed the bar and like the new refurbishment. Wanted to get bar snacks but none were available despite the menu showing a range of things- disappointing. Have eaten here before and it was good so will look forward to trying the food out once again.

Usually a decent place to eat. But it was disaster after disaster for my friends and I today. We were out for a special occasion, out for brunch. I booked online, and when I arrived my reservation had been noted down incorrectly, so they had to squeeze us in. We then waited a long time for our food to arrive.... More

We enjoyed our visit and the food was good, especially the toast. However, we had to wait, and wait, and wait for someone to take our order. BUT it was refreshing that the waitresses were British, Scots even which made the visit even more worthwhile. The black pudding and haggis on the breakfast plate was most delicious but the coffee...

We were in Edinburgh for our son's graduation. He brought us at Montpelliers as it is his favorite place for breakfast. He is right, the food is delicious, the style is very fresh, the refurbishment is clever, right colors and right decor . Then we went another 3 times, including a lunch that was very satisfactory. It is true, the... More

Been a while since last visited but impressed by latest refurbishment. Service was however very slow. Place was busy but not that busy but not enough bar staff. Did not eat this time but will try later. Very expensive though Nice outside tables in street spoilt by smokers

Had to visit the Friday they reopened as this place has been a favourite of mine. Love the decor much brighter, open and airy. Food still fabulous, especially the burger and chicken and club bacon sandwich. Eggs Benedict will be great here on a morning now it's do much brighter. Not so keen on the new bistro style chairs.

Montpelliers'in Edinburgh used to be our usual favourite restaurant when we both wanted something romantic and too formal. We haven't been back yet after the recent refurb, so this review is based on our experience before that refurb. To say the atmosphere and ambience was perfect (at least for us) is an understatement. We enjoyed the fact that after a... More

Myself and a group of friends decided to go here for dinner after hearing about its recent renovation. It has always been a good place for food and drinks but the makeover has certainly made a difference. I loved the new layout with different areas lending towards different needs, whether that be for a coffee, drinks after work or a... More

We have been several times for food and also just for drinks and I must say it has delivered on every occasion. Its well priced, the food is of a high standard and the service is always very good and very friendly. It can get busy at times - but I guess thats a sign that they are doing something... More
