Decent meal.

Ate there recently and was pleasantly surprised at the size of the sea bass I ordered - no skimping! My friend had salmon and husband had steak - we enjoyed our meal. Afterwards my friend asked for biscuits and cheese and told it's not on menu - he persisted and we were brought a plate with 3 large... read more

I've been visiting as a child with my family reading the Pink News for those old enough to remember that and as an adult for the occasional visit 4/5 times a year. Buffalo Grill was my favorite place anywhere but it's slipping downhill a little. Steaks are getting tough and just not as good as they used to be... it's... More

Came here for lunch and we ordered the the regular and cajun salsa burger. They were alright but I have to say McDonald's is definitely tastier (and cheaper too!) Portions were generous though. Looking at other reviews, maybe the restaurant was having an 'off day' but I must say I was slightly disappointed with the overall taste.

Since we were off to see Barbara Dickson at The Queens Hall a pre-concert meal at The Buffalo Grill was a must. It's take your own wine so we didn't forget to pick up a nicely chilled bottle of Chardonnay to accompany an excellent meal. We always try to eat here when in Edinburgh. It's been going for years and... More

I've been going here for over ten years now. It's consistently good food at good prices, and the staff are always great. I recommend it to anyone and everyone (except perhaps vegetarians and vegans).

I recently visited the Buffalo Grill, we were walking by and made an impulse decision to go for dinner. I had heard from a few friends that it is a good restaurant and they recommended to me to visit. We were there around 6pm however the restaurant was quiet, so we were able to choose where to sit and the... More

Staying in Southside & Holyrood

Neighborhood Profile
Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around university buildings in Southside, the sort of neighborhood that supports a long string of second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for just a few pounds. In August the student population is replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking Southside are two great parks. The Meadows is a vast flat and sporty space where football, rugby, tennis, cricket, croquet, and golf often all take place side by side. Kids in its big playgrounds add to the joyful noise. Far bigger and much wilder, Holyrood Park extends to the east and provides a real hike up Arthur’s Seat, but the district is best known as the site of Scotland’s Parliament and its premier Royal Palace—and their steady stream of sightseers.
