Quick supper between festival shows. Really good, helpful fast service and very good sharing platter and burgers. Would visit again.
Overpriced for what is essentially pub grub. Any atmosphere destroyed by overly loud music which did not fit in with the character of the dining room.
This is a favourite place to eat in Edinburgh. Service is always good and staff pleasant. Breakfast is great and menu caters for all tastes, decent vegetarian options. Nice ambience but always book as it can be busy at peak times.
Really nice place. Went for lunch while at the Fringe. Excellent service and menu had a good selection. Food was excellent and well presented. Would definitely recy
Excellent food. Best fish and chips I have had for ages!
Loved it here, great service lovely food, which wasnt over priced and just the right portion size. We celebrated a family birthday and element couldn't have been better. Highly recommend.
Another lovely experience at Element - our favourite gastro pub in town.
Becoming a friend is fantastic value getting a generous 20% discount.
Only disappointment, we came for the Sunday Roast and it was sold out.
Next time we will book the roast as well as the table!
(We enjoyed it so much the previous Sunday - had to come back with friends)
Food, staff, venue were all excellent.
I had to take a star off for running out of roasts before 1500.
As I am gluten free it is now on my list of places I will definitely return to , very helpul and informative and menu choice (and beer) is good
I had a great time in Element, good food and ambiance but mainly great service! Thank you for pampering my friends and I.
Great ambience. Menu ideal for all - sandwiches, full breakfast to fish and chips
Good wine list by the glass.
Remember to book or you could be disappointed! Excellent food in great surroundings!
Would have preferred a better menu selection to many sandwiches
Fantastic fish and chips! Fish obviously fresh, batter perfectly crisp, chips had a great flavour and loved the pickles and capers on the side.
Bar area at front smells like stale beer. The back area for dining is very nice. Clean and comfortable. The food is good but not great. The wine list is terrible. They brought a flat coke (the settings on the CO2 were off). Service was friendly and very good.
Visited Element on a Saturday afternoon for lunch and drinks with visitors from Leicester. Welcomed on entrance and quickly shown to our reserved table and offered another table if that one wasn’t suitable. It was suitable. Staff friendly and attentive. Food was good. Fresh and served quickly. Drinks were good too.
Very comfortable seating, but we were moving on so didn’t stay too long but would go back again to stay longer.
From the moment we arrived we were made welcome and shown to our table. The service, ambiance and food were outstanding and I’m sure we’ll be back.
I love dining at this place, the service is great and the food is always delicious.
Tasty lunch. Swift service. Good value. Happy
Excellent food and service
An uexpected lounge-style eateries at the back of the bar. Loved it!
My third or fourth visit to this restaurant and it never disappoints. Was meeting an overseas visitor, a lifelong friend, and chose this restaurant for a lovely lunch in a cosy setting with excellent service. The food portions are huge and neither of us could finish - after all, we had to leave room for one of the delicious desserts! Would I recommend? Certainly, and I have on a number of occasions over the years.
Good meal in a pleasant environment separate from the noisier bar area. It was convenient to be able to make an online booking.
What a great find. Service was great and the food was superb too. Value for centre of Edinburgh was really good too. The servers were great. Not too in your face but always close by. First visit but will not be the last
As a girl, I really appreciated the kind intentions in the restrooms with free deodorants, nappies etc...
We had a great dinner at Elements. Everyone was very friendly, and both food and service were terrific. My husband had the lamb, which was absolutely excellent, and my fish and chips was quite tasty. The house salad was really fresh and big enough for two. Thanks for a good dinner!
The service was outstanding and the food tasty although the serving was somewhat smaller than expected
Always a pleasure. We will come back. Good food. Perfect sevice.
Delicious food, very friendly, helpful staff and a pleasant atmosphere in general. We have been here before and would hope to come back in the future.
Very good. Food is great and ambient is ok.
Fish and chips is nice, good beer.
Very nice meal and lovely staff who were attentive but gave us our space. Just great!
Perfect location, food, ambience, staff and drinks! Highly recommend
Everything was superb. From the service, the food, the ambience. Well done team!! Will be back definitely!
Had lunch on Friday. Great fish and chips. Good service.
Everything about this restaurant was good, the food, surroundings and service. The only criticism I would have is the background music noise level was just bordering on intrusive. We mentioned this to the manager, but it seemed the younger clientele in the adjacent bar liked it!
Good selection of drinks and medium sized food menu, great vibe and atmosphere.
Good value for money as the portion sizes were large.
Only negative was that the waiters could have been abit quicker on refills and payment but otherwise great night
Went with 3 girl friends. Staff are very attentive, especially Ben & Edward . Great atmosphere. Will definately be back.
Great little place for lunch 😊
Excellent service re table and waitress food fabulous value and quality
This is our third visit to Element on Rugby match day and have been very impresses with the staff, service and food served. A lovely, relaxed atmosphere with friendly, helpful staff. Will visit again when in Edinburgh.
