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.

The food, service and ambience are little hinted by the modesty of the frontage of this restaurant. It was an absolute delight to be so well looked after and fed, with the minimum of fuss. Thank you for a great evening!

In general, I would say it's over rated and over priced. I ordered a filet that was fine but not outstanding. I ordered it rare and it was medium at best. It came with a little basket of french fries and some greens sprinkled on top for £34. My friend order a ribeye that was full of gristle. We've had much better meals for much less.

If you are looking for good food (not touristic one) inthe middle of the main touristic mile, this is your place. But keep in mind that it is not extraordinary food, and it is a bit pricy

As I'd received a voucher for my Birthday, we booked a table for 2 and had a 3 course lunch. Not sure I would have visited Angels with Bagpipes without the voucher to be honest but we are so glad we went, it was one of the best lunches we have had, every course was delicious, the staff were courteous and it was a greatly dining experience. Highly recommended.
