Food was lovely Attentive staff. Only 6 of us who hadn't noticed the service charge. Pity as we would have tipped more. Don't like it automatically added assuming everything is going to be ok . Overall would return. NOTE NO DISABLED TOILET.
Really good service, great friendly atmosphere and the food was amazing
great place to have breakfast - yes, it is a pub / bar but fantastic set up for food. We've had breakfast there several times as food, coffee, seating and staff all great. Great menu.
Lovely food in a lovely setting. Well worth a visit. Great value with the friends discount.
Have eaten hear quite often. This was the first time though , for breakfast. Choice was excellent, quantity also. Would have liked it hotter.
Staff were excellent.
Very nice meal
Great staff and very friendly.
Great drink choices
The whole experience was fabulous.. food was outstanding.. Will defiantly be back for another visit
Good 50% Off deal at present
Fish ceaser salad could use more fish
Not great service from staff member on duty,manager took ages to come and see us and it wasnt busy. The colleague didnt know if there was a disabled toilet so my mum had to struggle down the stairs. Not overly attentive but the food was nice.
I love the atmosphere and drinks in this place. Music is a bit too loud - the bar was almost empty but it was difficult to talk with someone because of the music. Food was really tasty but my vegetarian food portions were much smaller than my boyfriend’s no-vegetarian options.
Really lovely Scottish vibes! Brilliant quality of food and staff were superb!
Lively and friendly, but laid-back feel. Tasty food, good service. Would definitely recommend and will return.
Dinner on New Year’s Eve in Edinburgh is a VERY busy night, but the staff were attentive and nothing was a problem for them. There was a set menu and all the food was excellent, and I felt great value for money. Lovely place, lovely atmosphere, lovely food, lovely people!
I'm a fairly regular visitor to Element. I arranged a lunch there between xmas and new year. I had no difficulty booking a table; it was ready when we arrived; service was excellent as usual; food was excellent and the value was superb. It's a great city centre venue but, if you're eating, I would always suggest that you book ahead.
Great service and veggie option!
Nice cozy and good food.
Better than average pub food but with really good service
Totally love this place atmosphere is buzzing food is always the best
party of 6 breakfast, was looking good until i atarted eating it, lorne sausage tasted of garlic it wasnt good. ive eaten breakfast before in element and thought it was fabby but not this time went down hill. eggs where poor some of my party didn't finish there's so probably give it a miss in future.
Lovely place, good food and attentive staff. This is the second time I've been for a meal and will definitely be back.
Just a lovely cosy pub. Food was great and the winter cocktails were amazing. Recommend booking as it’s very busy on a weekend.
Excellent food , lovely waitress and atmosphere . Although bar was extremely busy , you could not hear it in the restaurant.
Lovely early lunch at Elements. Good relaxed atmosphere inside to get away from all the hussle & bussle of all the Christmas shoppers outside. The scrambled egg and salmon on sourdough bread was sooooo good.
Cosy restaurant with good food and friendly servers. Taking out membership gives 20% off the food bill - a nice bonus at this time of the year.
Been here a few times over 2 visits to Edinburgh and is our 1st choice of venue for food, down to the atmosphere location selection quality and staff who make you feel welcome and take time to speak to you about your visit etc. Can't recommend Element enough!
Our favourite place to eat in Edinburgh, great food and even better service with friendly and helpful staff.
Highly recommended to all
excellent choice of food and the chosen food was very good
Was really good, however very busy with Christmas parties, which is to be expected in December. However music was very loud, couldn't have a good conversation, not sure if this was because of Christmas party or not.
The noise from the main bar is way too loud. Asked if it could be turned down only to be told that the speakers were connected to the main bar. There won't be a next time.
Always love the Elements such a nice relaxed atmosphere especially if you want to chat over your dinner, however found the background music rather loud this time we had to ask for it to be lowered.
Always a must for me when visiting the capital. Warm friendly and very relaxed atmosphere. Although the menu is not vast the quality of the food is excellent. Till next time ......
I would definitely recommend a visit to Element. The food is delicious, the service excellent and the surroundings inviting and comfortable. What more can one want!
Food was lovely & the staff were very nice, however service was a bit slow
Warm and welcoming, good food nice choice of drinks.
Visited for a special birthday. Seated quickly but overlooked for a short while - had to ask for menus from the first waiter. The waitress who then took over our table, however, was super attentive and really efficient. Slightly limited menu choices for me; haggis starter was delicious but my main course burger was on the dry side. The rest of the party enjoyed their mains (fish & chips, chicken Kiev) may have been a one off. We were brought a complementary dessert for the birthday girl, which was a lovely touch. I’d definitely return.
A very warm, comfy environment with a simple but tasty menu - the salmon and mascarpone croquette were excellent - and a professional and kind service.
They do offer a gluten free menu, however they didn't offer gluten free alternatives to chips, onion rings etc. cooked in the same fryer as everything else with gluten... This meant I was served a meal contaminated food which I couldn't even eat? Whats the point in serving it and not giving an alternative? After this, I was still charged full price for a meal that I could only eat half of...
Un'ambientazione davvero curata in ogni dettaglio in una zona della città molto viva e affollata di localini.
Ottimo selezione di birre e whisky.
Buonissimo il Cranachan!
Great place for Sunday brunch or lunch. Fab location, lovely staff, good choice. i have also had dinner here and enjoyed it.
Great Sunday dinner, excellent value and friendly staff
