Monteiths Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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!
Every time we are in the neighbourhood we make a point of going to Monteiths, it really is fantastic- amazing food, great cocktails, and such a cosy wee place. It's perfect for a special occasion and the service is always great too. Can't wait until next time ☺️
I had booked a table for my boyfriends birthday, we arrived a little early and were seated quickly. I had noted his birthday in my booking and this was very subtly addressed by the staff. Our meal was stunning, wine was perfect and the staff were lovely, very attentive and chatty. They brought him a little birthday dessert and offered to sing, much to his embarrassment ... which made it a successful night. The venison is delicious, Arbroath risotto was very tasty and the cocktail selection is brilliant and very different.
Was a lovely place food was outstanding!, the service could have been better though they didn't ask us if we wanted an beverages and I had to try getting there attention at least 4 times before they finally responded. Overall the food was delicious and I would still definitely recommend this place.
Nice ambiance, good food. Try the peppercorn sauce. Good selections of wine and craft cocktails and the apple pie for dessert was epic! All in all great experience and Monica was a very attentive and informative server. Would definetley return next trip to Edinburgh.
Had a fantastic time, felt welcomed from the word go, most notably by the friendly Australian and Italian who were working behind the bar. Food was great, small and intimate location but not overcrowded.I ended up proposing here to the better half. Highly recommended
My partner and I visited Monteith's during a short city break to Edinburgh to celebrate buying our first home. The place we were staying had a little info package including recommendations of where to eat and we took a punt on Monteith's and boy it it pay off. The food was delicious, served promptly and they even indulged us with an off-menu cocktail request which was also spot on.
All in all, a great dining experience.
