We didn't know before arriving that this was the last service of this restaurant. The interior did not match the warm cosy interior depicted on the web site service was erratic to say the least. Items on the menu were not available. Starters were disappointing and whilst main courses and desserts were tasty they were not spectacular. This was a... More

This place used to be quirky with great food. Now it's just quirky. From the moment we entered and were struck by the decrepit surroundings to the instant coffee on leaving it was dreadful. Don't do it - with or without voucher!

Having lived in the west end for many years, I have previously ventured into the Cabin on odd occasion, but always a special one. I loved the place, great atmosphere, friendly manager, good banter and most of all brilliant food... My girlfriend noticed a Groupon voucher for lobster and without a seconds' hesitation, we purchased it and booked our table... More

Quaint little restaurant, very attentive, fab service, food freshly prepared and cooked. Beef wellington is out of this world. Desserts are to die for.. Never ever been to a restaurant where I've wanted to lick every single plate!

Had booked via Groupon, lobster meal for two. I can honestly say this is my worst meal ever. On arrival asked for menu for starters. Most were not available, strange it was only 7.15pm. Decided to order drinks, a coke and asked for a Pinot Grigio . Yes, no problem. What was served was not a Pinot! 'Lobster' arrived. No... More

We decided to try this restaurant after purchasing a Groupon voucher for a Lobster meal for two. The voucher only included a main meal so we were looking forward to picking out starters/puddings when we arrived. On arrival we found a dingy wee room no bigger than your average sitting room crammed with about 8 tables with barely any room... More

Had eaten here in the past and had fantastic food. What an atrocious experience this time. Arrived with a booked table and just told to sit anywhere not shown to table. 20 minutes before drinks order taken and menu given a further 20 minutes to have drinks and no ice available. 50 minutes after arriving starters served which were nice...

The Cabin in Whiteinch has been a stalwart of West End restaurants for many, many years. Unfortunately, it seems that this has just disappeared completely under the new ownership and staff. We are a group of friends who have, for the last 15 years, frequented The Cabin for our annual Christmas Night out. And for the last 14, we have... More

Staff were appalling -when serving us 'Christmas' dinner-we were told we didn't ask for that when we booked! Having visited for more than 20 years we were all shocked at the rudeness and attitude of the staff who completely ruined our experience -we won't be back.
