“FANTASTIC EVENT AND SUPER STAFF”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

We had our wedding reception in Dirty Martini in April 2012. I can’t say enough good things about how the event went. The team recognised from the start how important it was and did a fantastic job in pulling it all together and dealing with any issues that came up on the day, quickly an with no fuss. The venue looked great, the food was superb and it was commented from many guests that it was the best wedding food they had enjoyed before including at very expensive weddings in the Balmoral Hotel an the various castles around Scotland. Everyone had a great time and that was mainly due to Emma and the team. I would recommend Dirty Martini for any event whether business or a very important day like your wedding reception.

“Excellent service and live music is an added bonus”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

Upstairs in le Monde has been refurbished in 2011 and renamed dirty Martini.Live music four nights per week makes for a good atmosphere for a meal or just a few drinks.Staff are very helpful and attentive.If you are local you must get their dicount card, which gives 20% off food and drinks. Open until 3pm at the weekends and is good for all ages and tastes.

“Best night out in ages.”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

Was out for drinks with 7 mates, dont get together all that often now so wanted to make he best of it. started the usual way, in and out of a few pubs till we stumbled across the bar on the first floor of La Monde. Even though it was a mixed crowed it was an instant hit with everyone. Ended up there till 3 when it shut.

The atmosphere was what set it aside from every other bar in Edinburgh. The guy on piano was on all night and had crowds of people singing and dancing. Not our usual kind of haunt, normally end up in the clubs but general chat afterwards was that we'll go back there next time were out.
