We booked here after reading tripadvisor reviews and because it was close to our hotel. And how lucky were we? The food here is marvellous, the service very friendly, and the prices are very reasonable given the quality and location. My steak was as good as any I have ever had, with the most rich and delicious sauce. And don't... More

Booked well in advance for this treat & wasn't disappointed other than we had no room left for a pudding. Ambience spot on, not stuffy or pretentious whilst small & intimate. A real hidden gem. Waitress was very clear & concise. I may have preferred the waitress to top up the wine glasses & allow us to taste before serving... More

Quality ingredient's, good service and excellent cooking was our experience at Dubh Prais. The atmosphere is relaxed,the cooking has integrity and a reasonably priced wine list helps the experience along. To my knowledge Dubh Prais has been around for 20+ years and you can see why it has survived in a city where there is a lot of competition.

Another visit to Dubh Prais and it didn't disappoint. Traditional ingredients cooked perfectly. Haggis starter is a must!

The best things come in small packages!! A small, intimate dining room on lower level of historic High Street building, Dubh Prais offers Scottish cuisine that combines native flavors with modern flair. I chose the Atholl venison--it was melt in your mouth delicious! The service was impeccable. We enjoyed our meal (starter, main, wine, dessert, and coffee) at a leisurely... More

On our recent first-time visit to Edinburgh we dined at this lovely restaurant. The atmosphere, food and service were all first rate! A sophisticated yet comfortable take on Scottish fare. We had the beef medallion special and lamb and loved both!

Another year at the Fringe, but more importantly, another quality meal guaranteed at Dubh Prais. James always delivers the goods and any visitor will not be disappointed with their meal. If it wasn't that good, then do you think we would be back year after year. Outstanding quality, friendly and efficient staff and a Chef that delivers!

The food was delicious and the service marvelous. Dubh Prais is a tiny, intimate little restaurant downstairs on the Royal Mile. Few tables, so you must make reservations. Such a great location, easy access to all of Old Town and Fringe events! Loved it! One of the best meals during our trip through Scotland!
