“Been twice in 6 weeks, so must be good”
Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

We don't live in Edinburgh now, but know what an institution in Stockbridge Bells diner is. We originally went in December after my son received a good report at parents evening. He loved it as did we. Home made burgers with loads of relishes to choose from, chips and a nice salad. Not rocket science, but good food doesn't have to be. We decided to go as our family of 5 in January. Still brilliant. All pleased. I had the chocolate cherry Wednesday. Yum yum. It's good value, especially when it's clean plates all round. Staff very personable too. Can't wait to return- need to look at when the next parents night is!!

“First time!”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Can't believe I've lived in Edinburgh for 15 years and have only been once to this restaurant. Had a lovely evening with friends scoffing burgers and drinking beer in a very chilled out, relaxed setting. It's not big and it's not posh but it is friendly, reasonably priced, welcoming and serves food cooked to perfection leaving you feeling satisfied and well fed.

“Not only a burger!”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

We visited this small eatery during the festival and admit to being a little apprehensive on arrival but it came highly recommended.
We tried a variety of different burgers between us and they were all excellent with different fillings and toppings but all cooked to perfection and I am not a burger fan!
It is on the small side with about half a dozen tables as are so many of the restaurants in the city but friendly service.
Definitely one to visit again.
