The restaurant itself is stylish and conveniently located right on the Royal Mile. The service is excellent - friendly without being obtrusive. Everyone in our group thoroughly enjoyed the food. Would recommend having more than one course, three courses was just right. This was our second visit and I am sure we'll be back. More

Pre theatre lunch for my sister and myself. Perfect venue, warm and welcoming on a very cold Edinburgh day. Excellent menu choices to suit weight conscious ladies who love their food. Service very friendly and efficient. Only two tables occupied which is unusual for this restaurant and this did not affect our enjoyment. Perfect for us, will definitely be back! More

Had a really good njoyable evening at The Ivy. Food was delicious, staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive, and the atmosphere was great! The drinks list was varied, and wine came at both affordable and luxury ends of the spectrum. Will definitely go back - often!! More

We all remembered what we had the last time we ate there and some of us had the same thing again. Most popular was the steak tartare starter and the most popular dessert was the hot soufflé - yum! The fish, particularly the cod, was cooked to perfection. Service was excellent and attentive and the final bill was not a shocker. The Galvin brothers have a good track record. We have enjoyed their food in London too. Excellent food, excellent value. More

Nepalese | Old Town, Edinburgh
Booked 1 time today

Booked online but phoned ahead before arrival to alter the time, which was accommodated without issue. The food was excellent with a notably extensive menu of vegetarian dishes as well as meat. It also has a split menu between Nepalese and Indian, allowing the opportunity to try new things while having plenty of old favorites to fall back on. Trying the Nepalese dishes for the first time was a revelation; very fresh ingredients and interesting flavours. Highly recommended. More

Modern European | Old Town, Edinburgh

I had both afternoon tea and dinner here within a week. Both were excellent value, but dinner in particular was a revelation - an innovative and interesting matching of ingredients, and a take on some classic dishes that proved to be as delicious as they promised... My navarin of mutton was both traditional and delicious. The service was provided by an excellent young and very helpful and knowledgeable team. They offered a warm welcome too. And the wine list... Extensive, thoughtful and with a good range of wines by the glass. Our Chateau Musar 1999 was presented in superb condition, and was good value at £70... Well, it was a celebration dinner, so why not. They have excellent wines for far less too. We loved the room, the food, the whole experience. A really good find in a City with many great restaurants. Looking forward to my next visit. More
