Private Dining

Just like its Old Town home, there are plenty of unexpected nooks, overlooking the Cockburn Street steps, the atmospheric Dining Room is at the heart. For more private occasions, the Halo room sits snug above Roxburgh’s Close. Tucked away from the Royal Mile, Chanters is ideal for that celebration.

Booked after reading reviews, I wanted something that ticked all the boxes. Compliments to the chef, I had goats cheese starter, Chateaubriand then couldn’t resist Chocolate Rhubarb! All I can say, looking forward to staying in Edinburgh again, and wouldn’t hesitate to return!😍

Had an early reservation. The restaurant, which is small, is in a lovely space. There were two table of 2 and only one other group arrived while we were dining. On Open Table the place had only an early time slot available. Nevertheless, while lovely tables were completely empty ( the entire time) we were seated in the last table in the restaurant with one of us facing the back wall. Why’s that? Would we have fared better as walk-ins? The server was not knowledgeable nor terrible efficient. There was no warmth. Was it worth it? I’d say no. Even for foodies what makes a place special is the overall vibe. On our visit this restaurant missed the mark.

Took my partner for an anniversary. Food was out of this world, I had fish starter as they had ran out of the crab...not even slightly disappointed as it was magnificent. Main was lamb, far rarer than my usual chop and again it was perfect for the dish as a whole and if they have a wine recommendation, take it!! Panna cotta and a liquor coffee for pud, the panna cotta was the show stopper for me. The fruit accompaniment was perfectly suited, not to sharp that it soured the mouth!!. Staff fantastic, attentative but not overbearing. Never caught with food in my mouth which was refreshing 😂 cosy, romantic setting and even when in such close proximity to other tables, the noise level was perfect for private conversation. We will definitely be back and couldn't recommend this little gem highly enough. Thanks for a great night!

We were only in Edinburgh for 2 nights and chose this restaurant for a nice meal based on other reviews. We were seated downstairs in a a lovely small dining area that I’m sure would be even prettier if it was dark outside (we were only able to get a 6:30 reservation on a Tuesday). The food was delicious. We both had fish. They have a good wine list too. Our server did an excellent job, as she was the only server for the room. I would definitely recommend this restaurant .

I brought my husband here for his birthday, after reading some very good reviews. We were most delighted with this venue. The food was excellent and the service outstanding. The staff were so calm and helpful and everyone without fail managed a smile and a hello. It makes all the difference.
We were given a glass of bubbly free to say Happy Birthday, and we didn't even know they knew. It was a lovely surprise.
It was just perfect.

For my wife and I this is our first visit to Edinburgh and we were so lucky to find Angels with Bagpipes as a place to celebrate our anniversary. The staff were friendly, attentive and professional and made our evening very special. The food was outstanding and we would highly recommend the haggis starter, the lamb main and the pork main. Great food, great people, great location, great restaurant! If you are in Edinburgh then you must go!

I booked this restaurant ahead of our weekend break to Edinburgh to celebrate a birthday. I was initially swayed by the other reviews, menu and details on the website but I have to say that the entire evening surpassed my expectations.

I requested a quiet romantic table for two and we were shown to our own unique dining area upon arrival. It was cosy, private and tastefully decorated in keeping with the restaurant.

Our meals were absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. Even the wine and cocktails were top notch.....as was the waitress service. Nothing was too much trouble and our waitress was very unobtrusive - perfect for a romantic dinner on a Friday evening.

We will definitely pay a return visit on our next trip to Edinburgh! Thank you to the Angels with Bagpipes team!

I was visiting Edinburgh for an overnight stay with a friend and wanted to treat him to a special meal for his birthday. I used Tripadvisor to get recommendations and I couldn't have been more delighted that this wonderful restaurant met my expectations. We had different starters and sweets but decided to share the Chateaubriand. Everything was cooked superbly and you could tell it was prepared by somebody who loves what they do! I would definitely go back and definitely recommend it to friends.

My son and daughter bought a £50 voucher for myself and my partner for christmas being the reason we came to restaurant. We had nice meal but both agreed it was a bit out of our price range and too fancy food wise and that we would not have chosen restaurant if we had not had voucher it was a nice experience though.

We were in Edinburgh for only two nights and celebrated my husbands birthday at the Angels and Bagpipes on one of them. We found the restaurant thanks to the positive reviews on Open Table.
They looked after us really well and had prepared notes on the menu to alert to my husband’s nut allergies. We were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble.
Delicious welcoming bubbles on the house was a delightful touch, followed by wonderful cocktails. The meal was delicious, every plate a delight, the stand out dish for us was the pork belly. We have already recommended this restaurant to others who live in the city and will certainly revisit next time we visit. Thank you.
