Absolutely perfect in every way. Staff incredibly helpful, friendly and attentive. My children we impressed that their water was continually topped up! The Food was exquisite. If we come back to Edinburgh then we will definitely come back to Angels and Bagpipes and shall recommend you to anyone who’s planning a visit to the city.

We were given a quiet niche for the 3 of us and found it really relaxing. The service was excellent and we didn't feel rushed. The food (and the accompanying wine) was first class and we thoroughly enjoyed the overall ambience.

To be honest, the restaurant was nothing special. The photographs available are clearly taken during a time when decoration is about. Considering what we expected, it all seemed rather bare and cramped.

Food was good and the staff were quick to serve however. I just wouldn't suggest the venue above most others I've been to in Edinburgh lately especially for the price.

Food cost is comparable to the Castle Terrace restaurant and that place really does feel like luxury even before you try their wonderful food. This is all for a similar cost to AwB.

We found the wine a little expensive (£34) but admittedly we all enjoyed it very much.
The steak we ordered was succulent and perfectly cooked in fact, we all enjoyed our food, also, the
staff and service were knowledgeable and attentive.

We were recommended by many to go to Angels, and boy did they steer us wrong! The people were great. Probably the only shining thing. The food was poor. We got the mashed potatoes and they tasted like they were made from instant mashed potato boxt! The serving size for the £24 venison was 3 small pieces. We went to a pub down the road after and spent £50 less and got great food, drinks and live music.

A really nice restaurant in the city centre with an imaginative menu and really good service. The only disappointment is that wine is not available by the 125ml glass which is very unusual nowadays especially at lunchtime.

Staff very attentive, food excellent as always although menu choice was limited especially if you don’t like fish. Fortunately we do so no problem. I chose brill for my main and my husband chose chicken. Both meals were delicious as were the sides of roasted root veg and mashed potatoes. Desserts were yummy and not overly sweet. I had a rhubarb dessert and my husband had a blood orange creation and we finished off our meal with a lovely winter warmer cocktail. This place never disappoints

Cost for 3 was £190ish and at main meal the potatoes were very very samll portion indead. The desert sounded good but the on ei had was a slive of an apple with 4 small toffee sweet cubes and small ice cream. After the meal the 3 off us felt we should go for more to eat outside and we are not huge eaters. think their should be a soup and felt oveall the choice of starter and main were liitle. Haggis and neeps , never seen any neeps just couldnt see it. Service was great nice staff

Weekday lunchtime found the restaurant very quiet - in fact we were the only diners for about half an hour before another table of 2 arrived. Service excellent. Food very good - small portions perfectly cooked and beautifully presented - just right for lunchtime.

So often restaurants on the tourist trail are not good. This one was great! The Auld Alliance is alive here with a blend of Scottish and French food and service. The prix fix menu was great value and there was no hint of a lower standard. Fabulous food and great service. A must visit!
