Great last minute booking

We were meant to be eating elsewhere, but due to no electrics we ended up here! We were slightly worried when we realised this restaurant was located on the busy Royal Mile - but we needn't have been.

It must be said that the food was nice, even though the portion was on the small side, and the service was very good and attentive without being too much. However, the restaurant itself isn't a pleasant place to spend your time and I think that for the money you are spending it should be better. The original table we... More

Nipped into Wedgewood for a bite to eat for lunch, they seemed fully booked but told us they had a table for 3 available. We all chose two courses on the menu a main and a dessert all for £12.95 (if I remember correctly) and for that price I wasn't expecting anything special. Let's just say I was pleasantly surprised.... More

Ideal location along Canongate/Royal Mile. Creative menu. Polite waitstaff. Can take walk-inns. Good value for money. £ 12.95 for 2 courses; 16.95 for 3. Positive ambience. Order the optional bread plate. Menu changes daily; today's sea bream in coconut spiced bisque is commendable. So is the roast Scottish beef served with herbed gnocchi. The Bailey's cheesecake finishes off a delightful... More

From the moment you walk in you really feel welcome. Coats taken, seated and off you go. Knowledgeable staff who knew about the food on the menu in real detail so could recommend dishes. Delicious food!

Booked this restaurant for my friends 60th birthday as we had a day out in Edinburgh planned. We visit lots and lots of restaurants and the reviews looked amazing. When we arrived we were given a glass of fizz, which was lovely and very welcome after all our walking about. We had looked at the menus online and had more... More

Went here with a group of 8; staff and chef were great. Being vegetarian my starter and main course both included goats cheese - loved the fact the chef as the waitress to check if I would like a different cheese on one of the courses - ended up having the beetroot risotto with blue cheese - it was amazing....

This is a fantastic restaurant. The food was of excellent quality and if you enjoy a fillet steak I would recommend that as a main course. Cooked to perfection with a twist of Scotland - haggis and creamy peppercorn sauce! The service was fast and friendly, our jackets were taken out of the way to be hung up, water was... 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.
