The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

Friendly staff, great Whiskey

We came here because of rumours of a great Whiskey collection, but we got so much more! Great food, friendly staff and cozy atmosphere. We came back the night after, but the place was absolutely full. We'll be back soon though! If you haven't tried the haggis here, I highly recommend it.

Wonderful place, very busy and great atmosphere. The staff were amazing u set the pressure of so many people, especially the bar man who had been making drinks for four hours and still had a smile on his face. Fantastic delicious food, well worth a visit

Amazing Food

Stayed in Edinburgh for a few days and we were spoilt for choice of where to go for food. We settled on this bar and wow we were not disappointed, the service was faultless and the food was amazing, the best meal out we've had in years, looking forward to returning again.

Delicious!

We had an amazing meal at this atmospheric, friendly bar. My husband throughly enjoyed his haggis stack and I, the Scottish salmon. Neither of us could resist the cranachan, for pudding and we weren't disappointed! The evening was further enhanced by excellent live music from the Gorms. Well worth stopping by for a drink, at the very least.

Was staying in Edinburgh for 3
Nights and found this wonderful bar/restaurant.
Brilliant atmosphere and great decor.
Wonderful service by our waitress, sorry didn’t catch her name but she was great.
Hubby had the haggis burger and I had vegi burger. Tried vegi haggis spring rolls too which were delicious. Cocktails amazing as well. I recommend to my sister who was also visiting Edinburg a week after us and she said her experience was wonderful too . Will definitely be back . Thank you x

Popped in for lunch on a Tues lunchtime. Was quite busy but couldn't fault staff attentiveness and politeness. Food was lovely and perfect portion size - 2 kids burgers and 2 sandwiches/chips for the adults.

Whisky galore

Great food. The haggis tower is something we come back for time and time again. Followed by the Cranachan and you have a lovely meal. So much choice in whisky but my husband was in his element. The staff are attentive. It’s well worth a visit.

Utterly shocking management. Location and food and staff all brill.
Oct 2021 • Couples
My wife and I popped in for a meal on sunday last, 24th of October just after lunch. Well, I have to say, the whole experience was utterly tainted by what I can only assume as the manager, shouting vulgarities at the staff. When you berate someone, you belittle them, when you do it in front of guests (it was rather busy), you embarrass yourself, them and me. Criticism is only useful if it provides workable alternatives; if it doesn’t then it’s just nastiness. Add in some expletives and some vulgar language and you have the finest example of bad management. The meal, the service, the waitresses names all forgotten, in the overhearing of that conversation.
After months of waiting to be able to enjoy the simplest of pleasures, that is not what I expected to hear or see. Shame on you.

Great place to be.
Oct 2021 • Friends
Have been coming to Whiski for years but most recently I was delighted to see Euan back as he looks after everyone very well. The food is always great especially the burgers, fish & chips and sticky toffee pudding. Its great to enjoy live music again and be able to have a night out in such a beautiful bar. Will be back soon for more whisky recommendations and to see those Gorms.
