When we looked in from the street, it looked as if there were plenty of tables just inside. However, when we went in, we were shown to a long bench table in a crowded back room. It was unbelievably noisy, to the extent that we did not properly hear the waitress telling us how to order etc. Not being a... More

It's a bit slow here, and not the best laid out restaurant, but fine for a quick eat. Probably wouldn't recommend it - far nicer restaurants nearby

The place was mobbed and we had to wait for a table, no problem, but when we got it it was very dirty. The food was just as usual but the drinks took ages and I had to go back to the counter three times for them.

Functional, busy restaurant. Adhering to Nandos chain standards and nothing to complain about but nothing exceptional either.

Was on holiday in Edinburgh - family of four. We went in about 8.30 pm on a week-day night in August. We were told on arrival they had run out of chicken on the bone - bit odd for what is basically a chicken restaurant. Then told they also didn't have corn, chips (!!) and the list went on but...

Apart from the miserable woman that "welcomed" is at the door the rest of the staff were fantastic and very helpful. I've never been to this one before but have to say it was as good as the others. Despite a mob of people the food served quickly and was tasty.

We always visit here when we come to the national museum as its cheap and cheerful and great value for money.

Staying in Old Town

Neighborhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
