I visited here for Sunday lunch with friends. Firstly, the place was empty and so no atmosphere. It is very nicely decorated and furnished inside though although very pretentious. The food was just fine and I think quite overpriced for what it was and the portion sizes were small. The main thing I disliked was the service which was so... More

I like to express my likes and dislikes in a place I don't give 5 stars to… I very much liked the venue and service was good. Unfortunately the eating area was disturbed by a lot of noise - music and customers - in the bar area directly to the side of us. However, food was fabulous!

I first visited Tigerlily's about 6 years ago and loved it so I wasn't sure if it would still be as good. Four of us stopped in for a late lunch the day we arrived in Edinburgh and it was as good as ever. Fabulous staff, the interior is just gorgeous and the food fabulous. The lunch specials are serious... More

Booked the two for one Tuesday. Lovely table and great setting. Service not so good. Staff young and inexperienced- one particular girl very miserable and clearly unhappy !! Had to keep asking for chips and condiments. Finally arrived after we had finished our meal. Bill wrong and they had to go back and check it twice. Wine extortionate at £45.00... More

Website, and booking process are great , however after that the experience is disappointing. Saw offer online for Tuesdays so booked for 8:45, would have liked earlier but this was the only option. On arrival we were shown to table and offered a drink. I was surprised how empty it was. Ordered starters and mains which were served in a... More

Stunning place to eat and/or drink. This has been my regular for a while now and it never fails to impress. The service can be slow at times, however this is due to it being such a busy and popular spot in town.

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
