    You are never disappointed when you come to Bucks Bar. This was our 3rd visit and again we had the best meal. Portion sizes are insane! We tried the special burger which was Honey Chilli Burger, Spicy BBQ mess burger and buckora. We left with very full bellies. Our waiter Sasha was so friendly and accommodating. She made our experience fun and got us excited for our evening plans to hear a string quartet play Coldplay & Imagine Dragons songs. We will be back to Bucks Bar very soon to try another delicious, massive chicken burger

    Hi Amy. Thank you for taking the time to write this excellent 5 star review. I can see that you are becoming a bit of a regular, here at Bucks, which is awesome to see. We do always advise that you visit us on empty belly's as we do pride ourselves on the big portions that we deliver and that you can leave with the full belly's , as you did hehe. Glad that you enjoyed the Honey Chili burger also as it is now one of my favorites. I am so glad that you also enjoyed Sashas friendly and accommodating service and I will be sure to pass on your kind words to her. We look forward to welcoming you back soon for your 4th visit. Best wishes, Bucks team

    Our server Rory was topnotch, from the moment we arrived until we left. The food is excellent and if you are brave enough to tackle the hot sauces they have on offer then go ahead. A fine range of beers and cocktails are available. My only tiny gripe is the venue size is feels a bit cramped to me. Maybe Buck's Bar owners could find a bigger place, but as I said it's my only moan. One of the best places to eat in Edinburgh. Please note it is advisable to book a table in advance, to avoid disappointment. Finally, have the Mothership on the menu. It may well floor you but it is superb.

    Horrendous. Booked a table for 7pm and they had to drag a table in to sit us down...then decided to give our table to someone else. A joke of a place
