I went twice in the week I was in Scotland, and both times I arrived a bit before the lunch rush, and I was served promptly and food came quickly. The staff were very nice and everything went as a good Nando's meal should. The only thing was on the second visit I ordered the peri chips and there were... More

My wife and I were doing some touring in Edinburgh and we wanted to find a place to eat that would be good food, but prepared in a short time. We had heard that Nando's was such a place. We were the first ones in the restaurant when it opened at noon. We were shown to a table and given... More

Stopped in to eat at Nando's after visiting the National Museum. Fairly priced, lots of seating, and friendly staff. Free soft drink refills were a bonus. The chicken wings were pretty darn good. Not a fancy restaurant, but we're not fancy people. Kids liked it, too.

I love Nando's. This was one of the best locations I have ever visited. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The food tasted right. What I liked most was that even though it was busy it somehow remained rather quiet and not rushed feeling at all.

this Nandos is always busy but there is a little seating area to wait for a table and the way is never too long. It has an upstairs as well which is cool. Me and my best friend went ages ago and were served by a cool guy called chris - he was wearing a name tag that said 'Jenny'... More

An excellent Nando's lunchtime stop off whilst doing the tourist route in Old Town Edinburgh. The chicken was perfectly cooked, as with all Nando's you know what you're getting...if you haven't been before then they sell delicious char-grilled chicken dishes with healthy sides and salads (and not so healthy if you want)! We had the whole chicken platter which was... More

I went along with some friends to Nando's. As a vegetarian they had plenty of options, although they do not guarantee the the veggie food is kept separated from meat during preparation. Their Veggie burger was okay; nothing special. It is a great place to come with some friends.

Nando's is a great restaurant to have some good chicken food. This one has a spacious and bright atmosphere and the staff is nice. The prices aren't that cheap but it gives a good value for what you have paid for.

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.
