Amazing food, fantastic service and outstanding wine list. Elegant but not too fussy. We ate here Wednesday evening and the entire family decided we should go back for lunch after touring University of Edinburgh the next day. The food was amazing. Big hits were salmon three ways, Boeuf Bourgogne (one of the best beef meals I’ve had) and Chateaubriand. Desserts were fantastic too. The wine list is not very long, but very well selected and includes a number of decently aged wines from excellent producers (Mortet, Grivot, Marquis de la Guiche, Lafon and some excellent clarets too). Great spot. More

The food, service and ambience of Angels with Bagpipes was outstanding on all levels, the waitress had handled herself very patiently with some unruly guests and ensured we enjoyed our evening. The food and wine pairing was expertly executed, and I would absolutely come back in the future. More

Very good food and particularly good value on their pre-theatre menu. The venison cottage pie was particularly good flavour and went well with the leeks accompaniment. A bit less gravy on the plate would have been a good idea, it was a bit overdone for us. Good value, decent wines. Service was well done in an efficient and friendly way. Unfortunately we found ourselves the only 2 customers that evening, so atmosphere was not exactly “electric”. We have been before and it was very lively, so I guess this was a one off, and the food and service was still very good. More

Can not fault the food quality coupled with a nice wine list makes this an great proposition. However the feel is a bit stuffy and on our night (Wednesday) pretty lifeless. Now it was an early booking 6:30 and admittedly humpday but it just felt like there was no soul to the place. Having said that food excellent - so would go back but maybe next time a bit later in the evening and the week. More

My wife had eaten here before approximately 12 years ago and had an amazing meal, now many years later we found ourselves In Edinburgh with our now grown up daughters and looking for somewhere to eat, this came up and we remembered the stunning views over the castle and decided to give it a whirl. On arrival we were greeted and seated, we elected for cocktails to start and then ordered from the two course menu, two had the haddock and I had the flatiron steak, our youngest went for the burger., the portions were very generous, the food was delicious, truly we have eaten in many fine establishments but this was in the top 1% . The desserts too were awesome, I had the simple vanilla ice cream, roasted almonds and coated in a chocolate sauce and it was simply divine. This service was attentive , the cocktails awesome and the good divine. A very underrated gem in Edinburgh, give it a try I doubt you will be disappointed More

Great food. Attentive and accommodating staff. Bookable during the Fringe. Only reservation is that the veggie main dishes are slightly pricey for what you got. I'd definitely come back if back in town. More
