Excellent from start to finish. Great cocktails, great food, good service. A real gem of a find.
Lovely meal and experience, from food to booze etc however I felt the prices were a little much
What a fantastic restaurant! This is the second time I have eaten here and the food is esquisite! I would highly recommend if you are visiting Edinburgh to make this one of your visits!
The steak was unbelievable. Melted in your mouth and tasted soo good.
Veg sides were the perfect accompaniment.
Would definatly recommend
Last time we were here we could not got in do was determined this time to dine here. We weren’t disappointed from the moment we walked in service was fabulous, food was amazing and wine was beautiful. Would definitely recommend and will be back again next time we visit Edinburgh.
We visit Edinburgh regularly, Monteiths is a must visit for us, even if our adopted country beat us at rugby. Well done Scotland
We had a delicious lunch and very relaxed with excellent service. Food was great.
Spot on. Best venison I’ve had and that’s from a Scotsmen.
Fantastic experience. Thank you. The service was outstanding, friendly and efficient. The cigars were partnered with whiskey and brought to us in the heated outside area. The food was fantastic.
Fabulous lunch......wanted loads off the menu. All food beautifully made and service was excellent. The ruby martini was to die for. Best chips I've had in a long time. Amazing wine. Really cosy atmosphere and no rush......we had a lot of catching up to do and we were left to relax and enjoy. Will definately be back.
Ab fab waitress who recommended yummy local oysters and took fantastic care of us! And great venison haggis....
The food was to die for, great little place and great location on the royal mile in Edinburgh, the food was delicious and cooked to perfection, we had the Chateaubriand for main and was amazing! Best meat I’ve ever tasted and deserts and starters were exceptional too, thankyou so much for making us feeling welcome and would recommend this place to everyone visiting Edinburgh !
I really enjoy eating at Monteiths, the food is always great and the staff are always very friendly and attentive. The only disappointment was that we were unable to add a gratuity to our card payment and we had no cash, so I recommend bringing some if you feel like you want to tip the staff at the end of your meal.
Highly recommended, cosy cool classy restaurant. Slightly expensive, possibly due to its location, but doesn't disappoint!
Great food in a great setting - cosy & relaxed style
Very good restaurant experience with a very good local menu, the restaurant has a very pleasant atmosphere and the staff couldn't be more helpful, the only problem was choosing what to order so many good sounding dishes on the menu, was very happy with our choices on the night and will be back again to try some others.
My third visit - booked the table already before leaving my home in Finland. Food is excellent, really worth visiting. Background music is too loud for me - I'd just like to enjoy the meal + company.
One of the best restaurants I’ve ever been too. The service, the food and the ambiance was perfect. I will definitely be returning again. Thank you
Excellent restaurant with great staff, ambience and menu.
A great evening. Lovely atmosphere, very attentive staff. Great food and wine. Located very centrally in the city. Overall, very happy.
Wonderful food. Wonderful atmosphere. Wonderful company.
Wow! Another great meal at Monteiths! We enjoyed great food, nice wine and brilliant service. It never fails to be our favourite spot for date night.
Food was so poor - we shared the parfait which was dry and crumbly. We then had the Chateauxbriand which was over cooked (asked for medium rare and it came out medium). Given the price, it should have been a lot nicer than what it was.
Fabulous music enthusiastic staff. Best steak I've had in a long time. Scallops to start which we shared. All in all a really good dining experience. Would like to go back but it's a long way.
This was our 5th visit we love this little gem. The staff are so friendly and the food never disappoints. There's s good cocktail menu which has to be tried.
Lovely Intimate restaurant with helpful staff, really cosy & excellent cocktails . Food was delicious and wine list ok, on the downside serving sizes are small - Chateaubriand to share was TINY and to be honest a bit disappointing ( although taste & quality of beef was excellent)
Wife had scallops and I had oysters and although oysters OK was jealous as scallops were great. Shared a great chateaubriand and no room for dessert. Temperature was batch so didn't stay for a drink. Will definitely be back as the menu looks great but will wait for the weather to warm up.
A great experience except for the over present music - far too loud for comfort
Had a great meal with my daughter while dropping her off at university. Both ha a cocktail then shared the mussels. An entire of lamb for me and venison for her. We shared a couple of sides then split a dessert. Great meal and lovely ambiance. Would recommend it.
Amazing food and wonderful ambiance
Food was good, had to take a star off just for the roast potatoes. For £4 I expected them to be crispy rather than chewy. I still ate them but mine are better.
We had dinner on New Year’s Day. We weren’t able to get a table the previous year so had high hopes. We were not disappointed, great atmosphere, superb food & drinks and the service could not have been better. It was not cheap but given how much we enjoyed it, it didnt seem unreasonable. The restaurant is very compact meaning you are sat in close proximity to other diners, and it is in a basement, so if you are particlarly claustrophobic it may not be for you. Otherwise, highly recommended.
This was my second visit to Monteith's and I was not disappointed. Having visited Edinburgh a few years back, I remember really enjoying my experience and wanted to return. From the atmosphere, to craft cocktails and dinner, everything is recommendable. Thank you for being such a wonderful and memorable experience, Monteith's!
My husband and I went to Monteith's for a private dinner on my 30th birthday. The food was delicious and the service was lovely. All staff members who looked after us were charming and helpful. The cocktails were stunning too, try the Bees Knees!
Nice meal but nothing terribly special
It’s was a pity that the venison didn’t come with veg like the steak dishes did this was our Hogmanay meal with friends 7 of us and we got the steaks and venison but the venison was very disappointing and there was hardly any sauce and if we had not had starters and pudding most of our group would have left hungry. The restaurant is lovely shame for a special meal it wasn’t up to our normal standards.
Friendly atmosphere and very good food. Excellent cocktails - I particularly liked the breakfast haar.
Great wee find in Edinburgh’s High Street. Would definitely recommend.
This is our second trip to Edinburgh and our second trip to Monteiths. Superb dishes and casual dining experience. We will definitely go back if we are in the area again.
We had a fantastic boxing day meal at Monteith's. The service was top class all the way and extremely friendly and attentive. The food and cocktails were fantastic and exceeded expectations.
