Good service, nice food- but not enough of it. Desert was a little over priced. Service was good, waitress was very pleasant.

I'm very picky about museums... I know, I hate to be that person, but I feel that if you're going to be displaying exhibits and putting HOURS of labor in, you better be doing it right. Edinbrugh did it right. Just a few things that...More

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

No expense has been spared on Edinburgh���s Living Room restaurant, one of a clutch of popular style bars lining George Street. The d��cor has been described as "Manhattan loft with a colonial twist���, a pretty fair description of the chic, upbeat, welcoming atmosphere at The Living Room. There���s a lot of stylish wood, substantial brown leather armchairs, potted plants and sophisticated lighting. A slick entrance bar, brought alive most evenings by one of a superb roster of resident jazz pianist performing on a white baby grand, leads to a cavernous dining space where the balance between comfort and style is reflected in The Living Room's modern European menu. It ranges from snacks, salads and roasts (Sundays only) to comfort food classics and more ambitious pasta, grill and seafood dishes. Edinburgh diners love the international wine list and the sexy cocktails and absolutely everyone praises the service to the skies.
