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

Visited this restaurant with 2 friends and was treated to a superb meal in cosy but not overcrowded cellar, 2 waitresses and 2 chefs are the complete staff and I have to say that what they produce in a very small kitchen is remarkable, Great food, I had the Melrose lamb, perfectly pink and very flavorsome, but after the substantial...

Very small dining area but felt ok. Only two tables out of nine are close to each other which we were on but it was fine. Food is great - not over refined but tastes absolutely lovely. Service is excellent attentive without being over the top. Loved it.

We had dinner here with our son and his friend and thoroughly enjoyed it. This is a very intimate setting - downstairs with perhaps 10 small tables. Service was excellent. Starter of Haggis patties pan fried in breading - a wonderful intro to this Scottish treat. Venison and beef tenderloin entrees were exquisite. Our waitress recommendation on wine was so... More

We had dinner at Dubh Prais recently with some friends who usually dine at Michelin starred establishments. It was my suggestion to eat at Dubh Prais, so the pressure was on me. Wow!!! We we're not disappointed. Greeted by the very cheery waitress Nicky, we immediately knew we had made a good choice! James you should be very proud of... More

Have been here for a meal several times and have never been disappointed. Small, intimate, friendly restaurant. Food fresh and perfectly cooked. Staff very friendly. Very small restaurant, and yes, tables are close together but food is special. Better to book.

Recently dined here as a couple. The whole meal from start to finish was lovely. We had 2 starters of haggis and mushrooms. Main courses of venison and special beef Collops. The quality and presentation of meal was really good. Would recommend a visit. It is well worth the cost.
