For travelers was like having a little bit of the US in Edinburgh. Food was good, not haute quinine, but very tasty burgers and general fare. The amount for the money was very good. The bar was also very good.

This is a great location on the Royal Mile.

We ordered 2 burgers and the grilled chicken. The burgers were extremely over cooked. The Mac and Cheese were swimming in grease. The grilled chicken was also over cooked but not to the extent-of the burgers. The piri piri sauce was really good and the skewer veggies were done just right.

The online menu differs from the current menu so make sure you look before you commit.

The bartender was generally indifferent to rude.

Other than the view and the veggies I think there are many better choices in Edinburgh.

Lovely, bustling burger bar. Delicious burgers & hand cut chips were the best I’ve ever tasted. Big up to our waitress Mac, she was just lovely & so attentive. Very disappointed with OpenTable. Received a conformation email to confirm booking, another email to remind me of my booking, on arrival the restaurant had no notification of the booking. The restaurant were very helpful & got us a table as soon as they could. Would definitively return

Food was fine but noise from two of the waitresses was just too over the top, friendly but just way over the top for me and my companions.Time to talk then time to walk away.Everyone is different but i don't want the waitress to be my best friend or pretend to be

Reading reviews of this being the 'best burgers in Scotland' decided to try out. The concept is great and should deliver however atmosphere was poor they could
Do a lot more to enhance. Menu is great and wings were enjoyable. The burgers though were horrifically over cooked what a disappointment. Service was strangely in your face with the main course being brought before we finished the starter and trying to clear plates before we were finished even though the place was almost
Empty. Then when we wanted to pay it took forever. Didn't make sense.

Good was excellent and service was great. Only issue was there was no dessert or coffee as their was an issue with the water at the end of the night. Unfortunate. Otherwise great.

Lunch for 2. Table pre-booked. Only became busy shortly after 1430. Service was good but burgers only average for gourmet level expectation and price. Licensed with short list of draught and long list of bottled beers, wine and soft drinks available. Lively atmosphere and good location. Overall ok but a tad pricy.

Great food, lovely spot and really good location. Burgers are a little pricey for what they are but worth the money.

Sides were good too - Chilli cheese fries are amazing!

We were a family of four visiting Edinburgh for the day, booked a table the day before ... so pleased we did! Our server Lisa was so friendly nothing was too much trouble. I can highly recommend the blueberry mojito! Our burgers were delicious and the hand cut chips were divine ... portions were huge ! We all left feeling incredibly full, would highly recommend and will be sure to return , next time we are in Edinburgh!!

Amazing food!! My partner had the Anna Nicole Smith and I had the Rocky Balboa (I like Blue cheese but I found it way to strong but that's just a personal thing) however the fries were amazing.

The only thing negative would be cost of drinks we didn't mind as it was a once off but you wouldn't be able to sit and drink in here for any length of time. I had a Nutella and pretzel milk shake with a shot of Amaretto and it cost nearly £9 but was more or less filled with ice and toppeD up with cream to make it look huge. My partner also got a Flying Scotts dog I think it was called £5.60 ish in beer and burger but in George st weatherspoons it was £2.60!

The food was definitely worth the money and garlic bread with cheese on it was to die for!

The burgers and fries at B & B were fantastic! The flavours were perfectly balanced making the burgers incredible. The beer choice was great, and so good to see so many Scottish ales on tap. The service was excellent.
