Great food, nice cosy atmosphere, very friendly staff and a thoroughly enjoyable time. I will be back at some point and look forward to it. If you're thinking of trying it out I cannot recommend it enough. If you are planning to go at the weekend it is probably best to book in advance as there aren't many tables.

This really is a quaint, cosy, friendly restaurant with exceptional food for the price! We were four, choosing 3 different starters and three different mains from their relatively small menu, which is usually a good sign that the kitchen concentrates on what’s it’s really good at – so proved to be the case! Specifically, I had the venison which was... More

Wow this place deserves to be so high up in the Tripadvisor rankings. We ate here on Friday night and I couldn't fault it at all. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was simply amazing - the Haggis starter was declared by my mum as delicious and my wild mushroom starter tasted like the mushrooms had been...

Took my wife here for her birthday treat. We both had haggis for starters very enjoyable. My wife had venison and I had beef medallion s for mains. The meat was so tender and delicious. As other reviewers have said it is a small place, seats about 30 persons. Would recommend this place.

Over in Edinburgh for a pre-Xmas break and booked this restaurant after reading Tripadvisor reviews. I could not recommend this place enough first class food and service. Everything was really nice but a special mention for the seafood broth starter which my fiancé declared amongst the best she had ever had!!!

This place is very small (and I mean it, there is a total of less than 10 tables), but definitely makes up what it lacks in size with the quality of its service and of its food! Booking is highly recommended because we saw quite a lot of people being turned away on the evening we visited as they were... More

My partner spotted this little gem when on an evening tour. The following night we went to try it and what a wonderful experience, the food was superb, the service excellent and the atmosphere great. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Edinburgh

I had one of the finest dining experiences of my life here at Dubh Prais. Given the excellent reviews I was greatly willing to try this restaurant and luckily, on a busy Saturday, I was able to secure the last available table at 6. Dubh Prais is small, cozy and it feels out of this time, like you landed in... More
