Myself and my partner dined here on Saturday evening.
First time we have been here and would highly recommend, we both had 3 courses from the Al a Carte menu. Service was exceptional and the food and drink delicious.

I have eaten in many Michelin starred restaurants and the starter and the pudding from the taster menu were as good as anything I have had. Not to say the other courses weren’t also exceptional but those two were outstanding. Service was on point and unobtrusive.
All round very happy indeed. An excellent evening.

We always enjoy eating here. The windows overlooking Warriston Close enhance an attractive venue. The food was very tasty, all members of staff were friendly and efficient and I I think you would have difficulty finding another restaurant nearby that had the same quality of food. The set menu is excellent value. We had champagne and a bottle of wine which obviously costs more but that's what we enjoy.
Angel's with Bagpipes is an oasis of calm in the hectic Royal Mile.

Very good food and friendly staff. My wife missed the crab cake, which is no longer on the menu, she had when we came here two years ago. Will come again when in Edinburgh.

We had a fantastic dinner on New Year's Day. We nearly didn't book here because they only had a table from 9pm, but very glad we did! Everything we ordered was delicious, which says a lot since we all ordered different main courses and pudding. Highly recommended.

Given its location we were concerned that this restaurant might be too geared for tourists, but we were pleasantly surprised. Nice atmosphere and we all enjoyed the food - need to specifically mention the venison which was fab.
Located in the High Street (Royal Mile), the prices are slightly on the high side circa £60 per head with wine, but it was a great way to start the New Year celebrations, and we could actually talk to one another often not the case in many restaurants given the décor.
Staff friendly and helpful, albeit towards the end of the meal this got slower, but perhaps this was because it was nearing midnight and I am sure that they had been working hard all evening.

The food was outstanding. It was fresh, cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. The wine list suited our taste, and our meal. Water was topped up several times during the meal which was good. I would certainly recommend this restaurant. Very slightly dissapointed with the bright lights and lack of any clasical ambiance but this did not detract from us really enjoying our evening as the music was just quietly in the background which we appreciated.

The food and service was very good but the actual restaurant is very boring. Not much decoration or any nice feel. Reminds you a little of a chain restaurant

Great service I recommend that you get a reservation because if you were to just go there you have to eat in the crowded place. Oyster wasn’t the best but haggis and steaks were awesome and desert was just perfect.
