Well I'm gutted that I have to give this place 1* but I guess I can give it for the nice lamp shades! The 'Service' given from a young, blond Eastern European chap was the worst I've ever experienced. I ordered a glass of Prosseco when it arrived the glass was only half full. I asked the waiter about this... More

My pizza was good but my wife's was burnt round the edge. She didn't complain as I would have ended up eating on my own while they did another for her and then she would have been eating alone. We were also against the clock - going to the theatre. What was most disappointing however was the reaction of the... More

I went here on my last night of my holidays and what a good choice that was! Brilliant service and the food was amazing! Best pizza I've had and it was a nice change that the chef brought the food over

Arriving late at hotel hungry and too late for restaurant, this establishment came to our rescue after a long travel. Very pleasant, clean cut, and staff ever so friendly. Great service, best pizza express I've ever been in. Worthy of noting on trip advisor. Well done. Particularly the waitress on Friday evening 1st May (sorry didn't get your name) who... More

We settled on Pizza Express for dinner one evening as we were unable to come to a consensus on anywhere else. Glad we did! Having one member of the family a vegetarian makes it hard to find dining options as a family (so many places add a 'vegetarian' dish as an afterthought). Prompt service with a smile and delicious thin... More

Whilst on business I visited with colleagues. There was very few staff on but the waitress was friendly and did the best she could. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced compared to other restaurants in the area. I'd have no hesitation in visiting again.

So after walking our....feet....off around Edinburgh we were looking for someplace quick and easy. Pizza Express is located right off High Street. Wasn't expecting much BUT the Pizza was very good, nice thin crust without a bunch of tomato sauce. Service was quick and friendly. We would go back again.

Usual standard of food that you would expect from this chain of Pizza restaurants .The food was served promptly,and the staff polite . We ended up with three different bills as they had forgotten that we were using a voucher. The second bill came and they told us as we had ordered something not valid on the voucher they were...

It was Edinburgh school's half term so we knew it would be busy and so it was and we were glad we'd booked a table. We were greeted warmly by a lovely manager(ess) who was delighted we’d booked ahead so avoiding having to juggle tables. Drinks orders were taken promptly by a very pleasant and very professional non Brit server... More

Staying in Old Town

Neighborhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
