Steakhouse | Edinburgh, Edinburgh

Every time we come back to Edinburgh we end up here. Never disappoints. Food is outstanding along with the friendly, attentive staff. Love this place. Make sure to try their Mac & Cheese and triple cooked chips. Don’t forget the stick toffee pudding at the end either. More

I’ve eaten here on several occasions and always enjoyed it. However on this occasion, although the food and service was good, the noise from building work was unacceptable. We couldn’t hear the waiter at one stage so he moved us through to the Library to have coffee. He was very apologetic and most attentive. I feel I should have been warned about the work being carried out before booking! More

Global, International | Old Town, Edinburgh

We are on a vacation to Scotland. It was our first meal on the day of arrival. We were happy to have a meal without leaving the hotel. Plus it was pouring rain. The Metro is modern feeling and appropriate and affordable for any size family. They offer a value meal, two choices for 15 pounds plus a small glass of house wine, if you so desire. We had two delicious breakfasts there. The pancakes were my best ever. They also have a small upstairs area where we saw a family sit with small children so they would not disrupt the rest of the diners. The staff was very friendly. Nice place. More

We had our son's 21st birthday here recently and it was great. The menu was excellent as was the wine list. The staff were attentive and informative and went as far as to put a candle on the cheese board as a birthday surprise for him. We didn't order pudding otherwise I'm sure that the candle would have been on that! More

Italian | Edinburgh, Edinburgh

We have been dining here for a number of years and we have never had a bad experience or a disappointing meal. The standard of service and the quality of the food is outstanding, and great value for money. The restaurant has been refurbished relatively recently and this creates a lovely ambiance in which to dine. Nothing about the Cavaliere is overstated. It tries in no way to be anything it isn’t. This really does lead to a comfortable, pleasant and relaxed dining experience. It is a pleasure to support such a nice, local and family-run business. More
