I chose Dubh Prais because of good reviews on Trip Advisor & wasn't disappointed. It's a small place, I would never have even noticed it up on the street I don't think. I took my family there & as we walked down the stairs they were very suspicious & wondered why I had chosen a place in a cellar as... More

If you only eat out one night in Edinburgh this is the place. Myself and my son ate here on our last night in Edinburgh. I'd promised him steak and he was not disappointed. I don't understand how anyone could give this restaurant a bad review. Although the sign said fully booked on the little white door I chanced my... More

Let me start by saying WOW!!! This place doesn't look like much, but the flavors of the food were harmonious and the plating well presented. If one has the opportunity to eat here while visiting Edinburgh, you in for a delight.

Traditional Scottish food, locally sourced, the staff were exceptionally knowledgable about everything on the menu. The best Haggis ever. Would go back again and again and again.

Went here for our wedding annivesary on the advice of comments here. Wasn't disappointed. It maybe on the the Royal Mile so you may think it would be touristy and costly.Couldn't be further from the truth. It really is a gem, food is excellent and staff were so friendly. Will return when we go back to Edinburgh. One tip it... More

We had the pleasure of dining here on vacation and we loved every morsel that arrived on the table. My daughter tried their haggis and loved it! We received excellent service and loved the attention that the chefs gave to the food that we enjoyed.

Liked everything disliked nothing. Tucked away in a basement beneath a Betting Office we had totally missed Dubh Prais (pronounced Doo Praish) on previous visits but never again. Liked the setting and the staff were great. Food was wonderful Scottish Modern.

My second time at Dubh Prais (black pot) and every bit as wonderful as last year! James and company put lots of love into this intimate eatery and it shows wonderfully ... tried the Dover sole and am challenged to recall any better! ... save room for the their creative deserts ... will be returning when next in Edinburgh ...
