In general the food was very nice and the atmosphere as well. However the fish (hake and langoustines) were dry and almost tasteless. The vegetarian dish, fish and chips and the steak were good though.

Fabulous restaurant, amazing from start to finish! A theme done right.
Lovely bar area with great bar staff.
Welcoming and friendly host, we were seated in the best seats in the house which was brilliant.

Food was outstanding, had seen great reviews about the food and they were absolutely right, Golden Cock Pie was delicious!

Obviously after such a great main, we chose to have desserts and they also didn't disappoint.

As the server station is not in the main dining room, if its quiet you may go a while without seeing staff, but they are clearly attentive as when needed, they seamlessly appeared to clear plate etc.

Also, they gave my pregnant fiancé a little something to bring home with us which was such a great touch, we will definitely be back, and not just to get more decaf coffee!

Great ambience, great food, great place.

We enjoyed a really pleasant meal at Badger and Co. The food was a really nice standard for the price point - I’d definitely recommend the venison. Only slight complaint (and I’m disappointed to read that other diners have experienced the same but clearly no improvements have been made) is that we had to chase the waiting staff for menus etc. I guess it is a tough balance - between giving diners enough time so they don’t feel like they are being chased off their table and leaving them so long that they feel forgotten about but we definitely felt as though we had to chase up the staff more than once over the course of the meal. All in all though, we would visit again and I have already recommended it to friends.

Food and drink were good and the surroundings and atmosphere were relaxing and comfortable. Unfortunately the service was poor. We had to find staff to take our orders, and ended up leaving early as we couldn't find anyone to order another round of drinks. Also the staff seemed unfamiliar with the dishes as some were delivered with missing elements and they had to check the menu before going back to the kitchen to have it fixed.

This was our favorite dining in Edinburgh. The steak & beer pie and cock pie were delicious. We finished up with a delightful Bannafee dessert. This is a super-cool spot. Love it and have already recommended.

What a lovely restaurant! My husband and I were in Edinburgh for the night on a layover back to the US and were glad that we came in! The ambiance is beautiful with candle light and whimsical art on the walls to balance the mood. I had the cullen pie, which was so good I couldn't stop eating it even though the portion was very generous.

Service always great. Lovely ambiance. Went twice. First night everything was perfect. Perfect lamb, chicken pie, desserts. Second night food was good but tasted like it had been under a heat lamp too long. We would be happy to try again and how it goes. Undoubtedly back to perfect.

Food was average, i unfortunately ordered sirloin steak ,but could not eat it as it was to tough, the waitress was apologetic and discontinued my bill by 25% , on the steak not on the overall bill .

We where given a glass of sparking wine as this was a anniversary meal.

Absolutely loved dining at the Badger.
Only one complaint. On finishing our dessert, there was a massive long black hair on tha plate. We pointed it out to our lovely waitress. We weren't charged for the dessert..but very disappointing.

I really like the food, the settings and the service at Badger & Co. This time I was bit disappointed with the food, I ordered the NORTH SEA HAKE & LANGO. The samphire was quite woody and I was missing cutlery to finish the lango properly. It was flavoursome and the fish was perfectly cooked.

Great Service and we were really taken care of nothing was to much trouble.
The food for all three of us was excellent and for me personally, I’d didn’t want the meal to end I enjoyed it that much.

Can’t recommend Badger and Co Highly Enough, you wont be disappointed.

We were seated at the worst two top in the restaurant, even though other tables were available, and were still open when we finally left. We ordered a very nice Rioja Reserve, but discovered after opening the bottle it was a much inferior Spanish wine. Since we were on the path to and from the kitchen, servers had to pass us constantly. We waited what I consider a terribly long time after our main had been eaten for our server, any server. None ver approached our table. Finally, in disgust, we got up went to the bar, asked for the bill, paid, and left. We clearly told the bartender, who was also the sommelier that brought the wrong bottle of our dissatisfaction. I got the idea that since we were not locals, customer service was never a consideration.

Lovely venue for a Sunday roast with a view of the castle! Went here straight after the fringe and it was perfect to get a bit of rest. Great value roast with dessert included.

Excellent setting with a good vibe. The brunch is amazing value. Felt like we had to keep trying to get eye contact with the waitresses. Bill was wrong at the end, but immediately resolved. Brownies missing from the platter, but sorted quickly. will def be back :)

Normally yes, have been a few times, I had booked online which does not give the option of the brunch bundle so when we arrived we then got told that it had to be pre ordered and that they didn’t have enough stock. There were only 4 other tables in at this point. We choose off the menu and order a second drink just before our food arrived by the time our food came
And we had eaten still didn’t have our drinks.

Good food , well presented at reasonable prices. Staff helpful and friendly but very busy so not as attentive as they could have been. That didn't detract from a very pleasant meal.
