Even the haggis is great!
This was my second visit to Monteiths and it was as good as I remembered. I was celebrating my birthday with my husband and daughters, from the pretty entrance to the great music and wonderful ambiance we knew I'd made the right decision. Friendly staff, great cocktails and good quality food means we'll be back.
Lovely restaurant in central location. Good ambience and nice bar area. Enjoyed the cocktails, and the food was excellent. Let down by slow service which I would expect to be better in this type of restaurant with this price range of food.
Great service, excellent food - rather small portions, even for girls, but then again we had room for dessert :-)
Had a great time last weekend in Monteiths for my wife’s birthday. Food was excellent and coupled with fabulous cocktails and great service really made her birthday special. We will be returning and added this place to our list of favourites.
Very disappointed at the cramped feeling within the restaurant. The chairs were unsteady. The food was first class with the exception of the starters which were warm rather than hot and of meagre proportions. The desert menu was lacking in choice. One complaint is the menu itself which was unreadable in the light of the restaurant the typing needs to be bolder
It is brilliant restaurant. Nice food nice service there. Seafood is fabulous.
Cocktails are the reason to visit here. Delicious and creative. The food was only okay, which made it feel overpriced.
We enjoyed our dinner at the Monteiths. It was quite busy in the bar area on the Saturday night but we were seated in a quieter part of the restaurant. My wife had smokie risotto, followed by a special lobster, both were lovely. I had oysters and venison, also quite happy. The server, Monica, was very attentive and personable. We did not try the wine, but everything else was near-perfect.
The food was really nice and the atmosphere seemed quite lively.
Amazing ambiance, great food, would def go back!!
Having a few days in Edinburgh from Brighton.Came accross Monteiths totally by chance , saw the menu outside and went in.Lovely ambiance food great staff friendly.A bit pricey but worth paying a bit more.Would come here again.
Been back twice when visiting Edinburgh and would recommend to anybody.
Was far too cramped and very dark had to use torches on our phones to read the menu. Service was ok they were very busy and food was nice enough but very overpriced. Not worth the money.
Food was absolutely lovely only topped by the outstanding service my partner and I received.
Overall , a very good lunch. Staff very firendly and offered good service. Exciting cocktail making going on at the bar, excellent drinks. My only negative was the starter I ordered - the crispy squig. For £8.50, i got a minute amount of squid on a very basic salad - quite tasty, but bad value for money.
The food at Monteith’s was disappointing, everything was cooked ok, it was bland and under seasoned. Cocktails were very good. I feel like more effort was put in to the cocktail/bar side of the business than the food despite being a sizeable restaurant.
Loved it here--would have been 5 stars if not for the wait (we had a reservation and had to wait nearly an hour).
Wonderful service, really cool atmosphere, and very unique and yummy cocktail options! A unique take on traditional Scottish food. Would definitely go back!
Food as usual was veery good though the restaurant seemed very noisy and our table was overly small and cramped.
Had a lovely meal at Monteiths. Lovely atmosphere and great food.
All food excellent. The haggis bons bons are really tasty and the bloody Mary sauce is a great pairing with the. We always have the ribeye steak. Always well cooked and delicious. Excellent choice of wines and cocktails
Amazing food and cocktails - would definitely recommend and will return when in Edinburgh again
My third visit and whilst food is still good, it does seem to have more of a bar ambience than a restaurant; 80s disco music fine at bar but a bit ill judged for diners in a restaurant marketing itself as intimate. Cocktails were good. Table service a bit erratic.
We were in Edinburgh on holiday and had read about Monteith's, which received raved reviews so we gave it a try and it was a fabulous experience! Neat bar, very friendly wait staff and upbeat place in a very fun location! We will go back next time we visit Edinburgh.
Royal Mile restaurant offering a nice setting with some traditional Scottish food. Has quite a wide menu with enough choice to suit most people. I had fish and chips with mushy peas( would have like a decent veg portion rather than a garnish portion). Freshly cooked and tasty. Partner had burger which was proper quality meat. We had booked and it was busy even early Monday lunch time. We were offered water as well as drinks which I like. They did not stock irn bru so think they should have that as it is popular for scottis people. Friendly staff. Nice clean toilets and gentle lighting and music.
My 3rd visit and still charming. We gad to alter the booking 3 time, due to a delay with a flight arrival of more than 3 hours ar Edinburgh.
The staff are so friendly and welcoming and the food perfect as always.
Quaint and a very cool decorum. Fantastic service and an all around wonderful time.
Monteiths is a wee gem in the city. Amazing food, attentive staff, great atmosphere, lovely environment and delicious cocktails (try the ruby martini!). Will go back again and again. Book a table, you won’t be disappointed!
Beautiful space, amazing food, and excellent service. A true gem in Edinburgh.
Excellent restaurant with lovely food and cocktails
Montheis è un buon ristorantino direttamente sulla High street. I piatti sono giusti ed i prezzi nella media scozzese ma un po' alti per noi italiani. La carne chateaubriand è stata presentata bene e al sangue come richiesto e una buona pozione per due persone. Il personale è attento e gentile.
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.
