Took my partner here for birthday treat on our Easter break. Fabulous. From the minute you walk in you feel important to them, service friendly and attentive. He had the venison i had the fillet steak both excellent and a lovely wine list from inexpensive to sky's the limit. If you want special and intimate, try Dubh Prais.

We searched for restaurants on trip advisor while in Edinburgh for a short break and liked the sound of the Dubh Prais and I am so glad we tried it. We phoned to book and luckily they managed to squeeze us in. Service is top notch, and the waitress certainly knew what she was talking about and gave us great... More

We had a great meal here - three courses, all beautifully cooked, expertly served. Don't be put off by the entrance or the size of the place. It's the food that comes first. Whilst we were there several people were turned away having not booked - so don't make that mistake! The tables are rather tightly packed. By removing one... More

Everything to like - food, service, atmosphere. Limited but high quality menu provided excellent choices and resulted in our 5 star rating. Reservations needed but worth the time available.

Just been here tonight, the menu is short which means the guys here focus on getting each meal right. The food is fabulous. It's a small place, seating for maybe 30, but that adds to the ambience.

Tried this place along with 4 other friends based purely on trip advisor feedback/rating. Left it late for booking so only got an early sitting which wasn't a problem. Meal was fantastic, staff friendly and helpful. It is a small venue but no complaints from me. Couldn't fault it and definitely will be be going back next time I am... More

This was a 50th birthday meal that I organised for my husband along with another 6 people in the group. I booked it well in advance and couldn't wait to dine here after reading the reviews and was not disappointed. It was everything I thought it would be and more. Two of the group (one veggie and one not) ordered... More

Visited in a group for a special occasion. The organiser spent a lot of time researching and picked the best! Starters, mains and desserts were all of amazing quality. Beautiful, fresh cooked food presented with care. I'm vegetarian and get a bit bored with typical veggie offering stuffed with cheese and pasta. The chestnut cutlet with the spicy leek sauce... More

Second dinner in this restaurant (first time in 2008). The menu does not change much, but they have outstanding "dish of the day". Meat is perfectly cooked (we were 8 people with different requests) , nice bottled ales and a few whiskies reasonably priced.

On vacation with my wife in Edinburgh, we checked on Tripadvisor for a reastaurant. The Dubh Prais was right in front f our hotel (the Radisson Blu) so we decided to try it. The first night we had no reservation, and we were lucky enough to get a table. The waitresses were very very nice and kind, explaining us the... More
