Business dinner. Struck the right note between relaxed but similarly on point. Crisp unobtrusive knowledgeable service. Great pre-dinner aperitifs. Wonderful wine list. Food seasonal and perfectly cooked. Good hubbub of atmosphere. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening and would certainly return.

From being seated until the end of our meal everything was faultless. Oysters both crispy and traditional were the best we've ever had. The tempura squid is a sensation. We had the roast shellfish platter to share and again the flavours were exceptional. We're still...More

Another spectacular lunch here, every time I come here it’s made special by the staff and of course the amazing menu. If you visit one restaurant during your stay in Edinburgh make it Ondine

The location and the interior design of the place are really great, the atmosphere is perfect for a quite or romantic evening (no loud music or annoying stuff or anything like that). Apart from that, the experience was a disappointment. The menu is very limited...More

Yes, we were there on this particular day, had to book a table, the place was full with couples, warm atmosphere at the cold and windy day in Edinburgh. Seafood plate was very good, we liked the wine list and dessert I loved very much....More

Had dinner here on New year's Eve with friends. We had a seafood platter of lobsters, mussels, clams and oyster for starters. Was delicious except the lobster was proving a bit difficult to get out of the shell, everything else was perfect. I had a...More

We hired the private room just before the French rugby game. You could not fault the service, or the quality of the food served, it was fantastic.

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
