We had a typical scottish dinner- pies and something with haggis. The service was okay and the place was warm. No a/c is a killer on hot days but you get used to it. People were turned away who came to late to eat, so don't show up late(after 830) in the evening!

Met a friend here for coffee/tea. Nice seating area at front. Music a wee bit loud for me for conversation but pleasant spot to meet up for a catch up.

The globe is also high end cocktail bar. Just up from Princess street worth a visit. Spectacular building and decor. Great for atmosphere and people watching. A must visit if in City

The building is so beautiful and elegant with a lovely period interior. The food was very good with a real Scottish twist, the chicken breasts were stuffed with haggis and were delicious. The service was also very good.

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.
