Beautiful meal. Venison Salami, pork shoulder and carrot cake were all delicious. Two dined and two left satisfied raving about the quality and style of the food. Service was also really good and the location is excellent. This is a great place to dine in Edinburgh. We’ll return!!!

Second visit to this lovely wee gem on the Royal Mile. Excellent staff and amazing food. Husband requires gluten free food and they will adapt almost anything on the menu. Obviously well schooled chefs. Well done Angel's.

Staff are very well trained and friendly. The food is excellent. A little on the expensive side. £37 for a moderate bottle of sauvignon blanc is too excessive.

It was impossible to find any fault with our food, drink or the perfect service. I’d recommend this wholeheartedly.

Excellent food, fantastic flavours. The venison was really good as was the pumpkin cheesecake, but we also enjoyed everything else that we ate.

We had great food and good service, but the dining room was a disappointment. We had looked forward to angels and a luxurious interior. What we got was a dark basement with dingy lighting and no views. Maybe we expected too much, but this place came highly recommended with great views.

We took the taster menu, which was delicious and beautifully presented. Service was attentive, friendly and helpful. If I would change anything it would be the music - it was just a bit tinny and lively, and might be better as something a bit more relaxed and unobtrusive. But that's really just splitting hairs.

Angels with Bagpipes provides a fabulous dining experience, and has kept its position as our favourite restaurant in Edinburgh.

Booked through open table so wasn't sure where in the restaurant we were going to sit, clearly not in the area with the angel candlesticks. Didn't matter though as it was all about the food and this didn't disappoint, well except for the cheese board definitely not worth the money

Took my mother to Halo room for her birthday. The service was very good, attentive but not overly, they gave us plenty if time to chat, choose and relax. Food was exceptional, we all had different dishes but enjoyed them all. I would definitely reccomend it.
