Amicus Apple Edinburgh reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Great food in a Jaded setting

    Dined on 23/5/2013
    When we walked in we were concerned about the meal. The restaurant is jaded and, over the next month, is being revamped. However the food was very good and the staff helpful and pleasant. After its revamp I am sure, provided the manager and his team stay together, it will be a restaurant to visit.

    The food was very good and very reasonably priced, with a large choice from sandwiches to salads, pork ribs to salmon. The chef is really putting some care into the preparation of his dishes without all the fuss that can sometime accompany a good plate of food. It is all very honest and tasty. The service was great and I would recommend the place for a quick meal before a concert or a stroll to the museum, or simply if you are in town and looking for good food at a reasonable price.

    Visited on a Tue eve, still lively with generally young people, groups etc. Food was excellent for the price, staff were very friendly and had a large range of cocktails. Not at all stuffy or pretentious for a 'wine bar' would definitely recommend and go again.

    I visited the Amicus Restaurant in Edinburgh on Friday the 8th February 2013. A very busy restaurant but the welcome was good and a table was waiting for us. The service was excellent and the food was to match. An interesting menue with a good and reasonably priced wine list. I will be visiting this restaurant again.

  • Birthday night Out
    Karenh22
    Dined on 25/1/2013
    We booked to celebrate my birthday. Had read good reviews about the food at Amacus Apple. We really enjoyed what we ordered but wish we had read more about the venue. It really is suited more to the younger set than us who are in our 40's. It seems to be a place where you start off the night before you head on to the clubs. The beginning of the evening was fine whilst there were other diners and the eating area is separate from the bar. However we sat on for a while to chat and as the tables became vacant, they filled up with groups of young people who were very loud and we were really unable to hear ourselves over the top of them. Cant fault food or service but would go back for lunch rather than in the evening.

    Hi I took my girlfriend to the resturant on Wednesday evening for dinner and we each had 3 courses(we're greedy). We never had to wait long for drinks or any of our courses which were all presented lovely and tasted even better. I had the waffles for sweet and these were absolutley delicous!! Ive even invested in a waffle machine to try and recreate them!! Service was excellent throughout and the prices were all very reasonable for a city centre restaurant. Will return as soon as i can- hope they dont take waffles off the menu in the meantime!!

    The food was tasty, although the burger was slightly over cooked. The atmosphere was great, service was polite but we had to ask for a few things. All round it was good, and I'll probably go back.

    Amicus Apple is a lovely bistro centrally located in Edinburgh. Excellent value for money with a good range of food to suit every taste and pocket! The service was excellent. There was also live music which added to the buzz about the place.

    We went for first time this week. Was looking for somewhere to go for cocktails with a friend but wanted to have a bite to eat too. The cocktails were great, the atmosphere laid back (it was a Monday...) and the food surprised us by being really very good and better than many mid-range restaurants I've been to. We had a cocktail each, bottle of wine and a meal each for less than £40 so great value too. recommend.

  • Found the lighting a bit too
    Tweed
    Dined on 7/11/2012
    Found the lighting a bit too dim, making it rather hard to read the menu (white print on a black background). Server seemed to be in too much of a rush to take the orders. Was rather disappointing to have most of the beers on the menu not available - seems as if someone isn't keeping very good tabs on the stock on hand.

    Dined on 5/11/2012
    Having read mixed reviews on Amicus Apple, Edinburgh, was pleased that we had such a nice lunch, friendly waiting staff, good wine...all for a reasonable price. Particularly enjoyed the gooey baked camembert studded with garlic and rosemary served with lovely warm rustic bread. My friend had steak for main course and found it beautifully tender and cooked just as she had asked. The resturant area was very nice, but glad it was quiet as even with only one other table in use, sound seemed to travel and I'd think would be pretty noisy when full. All in all a very pleasant couple of hours!

    I'm from India and love local cuisines whenever I travel anywhere. They are located at one of the good places in Edinburgh and looked quite relaxing from the moment we entered. The food offered matched our expectations and appeared well prepared and presented. The staff was helpful and explained us whatever we asked for. We also got a good promotion offer fortunately the day we went. Overall, I don't think my experience of going there could have been any better. Thanks!

    The only downside to my dining experience was that I didnt realise that Amicus Apple was a loud pub as well as a restaurant (this was an error on my part as I was looking to catch up with a friend that I had not seen in ages).... HOWEVER.... the food was superb and very reasonable prices. Would I go back.... Yes now that I know what it is....

  • After you move past the bar
    RachelHep
    Dined on 8/9/2012
    After you move past the bar there is a small intimate dining area. With our DELICIOUS cocktails in hand we were sat at a booth.Starters divine - I had beetroot houmous and pittas and my boyfriend had chorizo and a generous portion of crusty fresh bread. Main meal I had steak which was a sirloin so rather large so I didnt eat all of it but it was cooked to order. Boyfriend a bit dissapointed as the duck was accompanied by a very strongly flavoured jus - I tasted it and thought it went well just a bit too much of it. He had belgian waffles (nice) and I had an espresso - without a coffee menu I just asked for baileys to be added. A coffee menu would beneficial. Nice staff very attentive. All in all a lovely visting. Would go again.

    Went along for a staff night out. We had one extra more than we'd booked for which was fine, although a bit crammed. Great atmosphere in the place, cool tunes etc. The food was very nice indeed, generous portions and tastey. They only got one order wrong but it was quickly rectified. Everyone commented on how they liked the venue and really enjoyed the food. After the main course we chatted for a while as we looked forward to desert. The waitress came and asked if we'd like coffees? Eh, not yet, can we have the desert menue please. Sorry, kitchen closed at 9pm. Hmmm, we'd booked for 7pm and we were not aware of this bizarre ritual of a kitchen closing at 9pm??!!! It didn't spoil the evening but we all like a bit of pudding!

    Booked this restaurant after reading reviews. So glad we did. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Food was delicious with generous portions and very reasonably priced. Good cocktail list and wine list. My friend ordered a cocktail made with "nutella". Staff informed her that there would be a delay and apologised as they had sent someone out to buy a jar as they had run out. Well done. Not all restaurants would do that. The other diners were considerably younger than my friends and I but we were made to feel welcome and had a very nice evening. Would recommend Amicus Apple. Is child-free in evening.

    I always enjoy Amicus Apple, their food and cocktails are first class. Only issue I had on this occasion was the service. We were reminded on three separate occasions that we needed to vacate the table by 19.30, the bill was slow in arriving and the cocktails we ordered where not what we actually received. But overall the staff are pleasant and the food was really good and to be fair I have never had an issue with the service previously.

  • Amicus Apple, Aug 2012

    Dined on 11/8/2012
    Amicus Apple is a contemporary bar/restaurant in central Edinburgh, serving quality food at a fair price. The service was fast and friendly (quite an achievement for a busy Saturday evening in festival season), and the menu offered a variety of well presented starters and mains (we were too full to sample the desserts on this occasion). After sharing a starter of delicious chicken skewers, marinated in lemon and herbs, I enjoyed a beautiful breast of duck, which was served according to my preference (nice touch), whilst my partner made light work of the Thai chicken curry (also available as a vegetarian option). As the restaurant also serves as a cocktail bar, this is not the venue for a quiet meal, but a great place to dine with friends.

    We booked at Amicus Apple after hearing about the fantastic range of Cocktails available. The Cocktails did not disappoint and the Mista Bakewell was divine; great for a sweet tooth! The menu was also impressive and reasonably priced. I had the Steak Burger and the portion was very large, lots of chips. Service was also very good and timely. Would recommend to any Cocktail lovers at reasonable prices. Also outside seating for hot days.

    Very tasty food, friendly waiting staff, but disappointed with lack of of standard blended whisky - plenty of fancy malts but none of the usual popular pub or supermarket brands such as Grouse, Whyte and Mackays or Bells - in fact the barman disparaged me for asking for it..... so we went somewhere else to drink later where they were not to snobby to serve it! Get a grip guys, get back to reality and sell a selection of blends.

    Very quiet for a friday night. Not much atmosphere but the food and drink made up for that. Our server was lovely yet another waitress kept getting our first drinks order wrong! Though we had to wait for a bit for the correct drinks our original waitress was very apologetic. With the 2-4-1 offer this place is brilliantly priced & there where also promotions on certain drinks. Enjoyable but the bar is more of a dinner then move on kind of place
