A mixed service. Confusion with order - ours being sent to another table, only for the other table to realise after starting to eat our order. Our order was pushed back, and the other table got their meal first. No explanation was offered until some 20 minutes after the mix up. Obviously we had gathered what had happened before anything was said to us in the form of an apology. It was a slow Monday lunchtime we were told as we were greeted. An off day for service, but the food was great as usual. Worth the wait. These things happen, but a quick explanation would have been appreciated. I will still return in hope of better service.
Visited for dinner, it was a Monday evening so fairly quiet. Menu was fairly good, a pretty good selection that my wife and I had no trouble finding dishes that we liked the look of. My main was a little disappointing, it was sausage with herby mash and veg, only one sausage for £14 was a bit steep, however it was tasty and well cooked! Service was good and drink selection was excellent.
Great food and atmosphere, Good service. Would recommend to anyone
I booked an 8:45 pm reservation for four people. We arrived at 8:50 pm. The restaurant informed us that the kitchen was closed, and we could not eat. I told them we had reservations through open table, but it did not help. They refused to serve us.
I have been to Cafe Tartine several times and enjoyed every visit. One star was lost this time as they had run out of gluten free bread, which hampered my wife’s choices. Staff as always were excellent.
We enjoyed a lazy Sunday lunch with several traditional French dishes shared and all were excellent. Service a bit slow but we had time and it was not a big issue for us.
My guests enjoyed the battered fish and mashed tattie but how difficult is it to get that wrong. My steak was tough and cold and served on a chipped plate. The French fries were nice. And they still don't know how to do crepes. On this occasion one was edible but the other had green tinges and was chewy. And smothered in a gooey chocolate sauce. As on a previous visit. We will not be revisiting.
Nice meal, tables a little too close together but overall very nice.
We like Cafe Tartine - Lovely staff - friendly and helpful. But on this occasion the menu was very limited and because they had run out of goat's cheese they couldn't make the veggie dish my daughter wanted. The food was nice but not great.
Pleasant venue for meeting with friends offering very good food and very good service.
Superb food with excellent and friendly service. The only downside for me was that the conservatory, where we were dining, was a little too hot.
The artichoke salad was perfect and my guests liked their pork comfit. The meal was delicious without being complicated or over the top. Good, tasty well presented food. What more could we ask. One guest is very fond of cocktails and appreciated the quality and presentation.
I thought the staff were very pleasant and not too fussy.
As it is a local venue for us we will visit again.
Avoid the “Surf and Turf” the filet mignon is shockingly poor.
Great ambience and location. Very good and relaxing dining location
We often eat at Café Tartine as the food is excellent, and competitively priced, the staff are friendly and the service is good. Their fish stew, when on the menu, we think is the best outside Marseille whilst their crepes remind us of many holidays in Brittany.
We ate there on Friday because they had a fabulous trio playing in the Leith Jazz Festival.
Although we live the other side of Town, we think it is well worth the drive to eat good food.
Excellent as always!
Not having been to Café Tartine before we opted to go as we purchased an Itison voucher for four people so went as a family Sunday lunch. Food was really lovely (particularly the French onion soup which was simply AWESOME). We went later on in the afternoon, about 3.30pm and it was quite quiet which suited us perfectly. Would definitely go again without any voucher and recommend it to friends also.
I imagine its a great spot at night as the location is good. It was a lovely sunny day when we went and there were some diners in the conservatory bit at the back which looked nice.
Our waiter (sorry I didn't get his name) was smiley and helpful which is always a good sign :-)
Cafe Tartine is always a great experience. Friendly staff, excellent food and wine, relaxed space and value for money. We are there regularly. Ruth and John.
First visit to Café Tartine but it certainly wont be the last time
Everything was perfection will return soon
My second visit. Love the menu and was looking forward to the French onion soup. However - I do know what a good French onion soup is like and this was not it, more like oxtail with onions and a side of cheese on toast. The soup should be clear, made with a good beef stock. The bread should be a croute or two, cut from a baguette and dried in the oven. The soup should be poured over the croutes and grated cheese sprinkled on top. Dare I hope that this delightful French-sounding eatery can get its act together for one of the classic French dishes?
Very busy, so obviously popular. Lots of kids and a few dogs. Good choice of food with daily specials. Unfortunately the table behind us had 6 very noisy guys. It was hard to hear ourselves. However, still enjoyed lunch.
Hadn’t been here for a while. Looked for the fish soup but settled for a main. That was very good. A bigger salad wd have been nice but what I had was great.
We choose to visit Cafe Tartine for a number of reasons. Firstly, they are conversant with the needs of a person with coeliac disease. Secondly they serve excellent food and thirdly they are dog friendly (in the conservatory). Food is always first class and service is very good too, with knowledgeable staff . Book a table here with confidence. You will not be disappointed.
The waiting staff were lovely, and suggested a move closer to people we knew, which was rather nice. Food was delicious, and a really good glass of wine and dinner for £25 was great value.
Good value, battered fish a little on the pale side and the panna cotta was overset, otherwise very good value for money and will be back with the kids to try the crepe menu!
Went for dinner with my mate and his wife. For our starters we had the Roast Pepper Soup, Chicken Liver pate and I had the salad with a dreamy poached egg. For mains; beef bourginion (this was unbelievabley good) a filet steak and I had the surf and turf which was delicious. For desert; my mate had creme brûlée and I had the bounty crepe...all in it was absolutely delicious, the service was great and the restaurant itself has a very cosy vibe. Absolutely loved it and will be back again.
Fabulous food; amazing service; stunning location - can't wait to go back.
Great place to go for a touch of francais! Six ladies had a wide variety of food but all agreed it was very very good!
The french onion soup with cheesy bread is to die for and the mains were all really good value too. Just wish we could have sampled dessert but we were all too stuffed!
The staff couldnt have been more helpful without being in your face, just very informed and friendly.
Good choice of wines at reasonable price too.
The food was tasty and they had a goodness kids menu but it’s took quite a while for our food to be served.
Always a winner, quality of food and service great every time. Son (almost 4) loves it to.
Delicious food, friendly staff, overall one of the best meals we have had in Edinburgh
This was my second time visiting the restaurant both the food and wine are amazing myself and my partner really enjoyed it will definitely come back
Food and service was great. Really enjoyed our evening, unfortunately we all felt it was quite cold where we were sitting and it took the edge off our evening. Would definitely go back again.
Lovely breakfast and friendly service. We’ll definitely be back.
There are not many places in Edinburgh where you can go for a coffee and chat with a friend and bring dog along too. Then evening slip on some heels and enjoy fantastic delicious food, good wine and great ambience. Cafe tartine gives you best of both worlds with no fuss .. love it
Fantastic service and loved the surroundings. 4 of us all had different meals and clean plates all round. veggie options not many but what I had was tasty.
Delicious lunch, attractive setting and reasonable prices for quality of food.
Second visit and very impressed. The starters took a while to arrive but the waiter brought a complimentary glass of wine for my partner to compensate and the food was worth the wait- especially the mussels!
Took my girlfriend to Tartine for a date night. Food was beyond belief as per usual. Steaks cooked to perfection and so tender they almost melted in your mouth.
Atmosphere is vibrant and casual, very relaxing and a good place to enjoy the company of friends and family.
Staff are knowledgeable and very helpful.
Very nice setting, delicious food, excellent service, good value.
