Makars Gourmet Mash Bar (Mound)
If you've never been to a Mash Bar before, it's not exactly a bar or a restaurant, but a combination of the two with an uniquely warm and friendly atmosphere. Look at our reviews they say it all!
Black Pudding Mash
If you haven't tried this before, it is quite simply brilliant! Staff favourite & recommended for any dish
Enjoyed by vegetarians and meat-eaters alike our own delicious vegetarian haggis is a mix of healthy fresh vegetables, pulses, oatmeal, mustard, seeds and spices
Makars Wild Boar Sausage In Our Onion Gravy
These Gold Taste Award winning traditional sausages are made from specially selected rare-breed pork hand cuts of meats from our master butcher. With a rich onion gravy
Fantastic food and reasonably priced. Would recommend the trying the haggis, it was amazing. Kids portions very generous.
Wasn’t sure when we went in as very small and more cafe like, however both the food and service were faultless. Really enjoyed our meal.
Great food amazing mash!! Would really recommend!
Good comfort food
Excellent food and superb service made the whole experience so good .
Fantastic meal as always - and big thanks to Makar’s for accommodating my request for table 9!
Delicious food, excellent service, nice buzz about the place
Not as good as I thought based on previous reviews. The gammon was excellent but the cheesy mash didn’t taste of cheese at all. My husband’s sausages were tasty but served with alioli not gravy.
It was also very cold and not pleasant temperature to eat in.
The staff however were good.
Super meal at Makars. Tried all the different types of mash. The cheese one seemed to be the favourite closely followed by the bacon and spring onion. Also tried haggis for the first time and it was delicious. Excellent service.
Visited after watching a Sorted Food review on YouTube! Loved the Mini Haggis, Neeps & Tatties Taster (and its amazing gravy/sauce).
Mains were equally delicious and I would highly recommend!
Been before love the look, ambience, food and the staff are excellent . Great mix of people there too
Really enjoyed our dinner at Makars Mash. The staff looked after us well and we all enjoyed the different dishes and different mashes. I had read a review before I went that the mash wasn't great - we didn't find this at all, they were all good. Some of our party had read the sticky toffee pudding was good and they weren't disappointed. Would recommend. Only thing we didn't enjoy was the music.
The most incredible food. Veggie and meat options were both delicious. Wine was a reasonable price and very good.
So glad we booked amd would visit again for lunch or dinner!
Food was good, service friendly, helpful and prompt . Would recommend it to anyone visiting Edinburgh
Everything was great. It was the first night of our honeymoon and they gave us a comfy bay window seat. The food was amazing and fresh, the staff were helpful and personable. We’ve waited a while to come and visit these guys and we will 100% be coming back!
A fabulous place! A really warm welcome and very friendly service. The food was first class (particularly the haggis!)
The BEST food and the staff were lovely, we'll be back!
Staff couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful
Great menu choices and tasty food
Superb food at unbeatable price. Restaurant at prime location, perfect for travelers spending time at old town Edinburg.
Best Scotland dishes I have eat strongly recommend the resturant
A great concept and delicious choices of both the mains and the mash.
Very friendly service and a lovely meal
Arrived early, no room to wait, had to go elsewhere for a drink. Simple menu, food flavoursome. Husband really enjoyed his, mine was ok. He would go again, I wasn’t that fussed. Service polite. Table was in centre of walkway. Shouldn’t have been a bookable table. Servers back and forth every minute. New guests entering brought a cold gust to the table every time. Didn’t feel the value but it was ok.
The atmosphere was fantastic and the haggis was to die for. A little on the pricey side but not that bad for Edinburgh and definitely worth it.
Lovely food, good value and excellent service. Can’t wait to go back!
Absolutely fantastic lunch - tender beef, succulent sausages, gorgeous creamy mash. Service friendly and impeccable
On arrival we were greeted by a lovely gentleman who couldn’t of been more helpful, the other 2 members of staff were so lovely and nothing was too much trouble our food arrived and oh my goodness without a doubt some of the best food we’ve ever had. I had the slow braised beef and cheese and chive mash the beef just fell apart it was so tender the mash was beautiful, my husband got the bonnie Prince charlie chicken with bacon and spring onion mash, he said it was amazing. We then both had the sticky toffee pudding which was delicious it wasn’t too heavy but super tasty. We will defo be back the whole visit was just brilliant the food was simple but done right!! Defo worth a visit a hidden gem!
Loved it, fast and friendly service and delicious food, will definitely be back when back in Edinburgh
Andy was our contact when we arrived and he was attentive to our visit , cheers man
Found out about this place from our guide book and it didn’t disappoint. Really friendly staff, the place was buzzing and the food was gorgeous. Will definitely return next time we’re in Edinburgh.
What a super little restaurant, the slow cooked Beef was stunning and the Haggis was fantastic, a true taste of Scotland.
The staff were all so nice and welcoming, would highly recommend Gourmet Mash.
Can’t wait to visit again.
Great food, too full for desert though so can’t comment on them
Restaurant was busy and there was a lovely buzz about the place. Staff were friendly and efficient. Decided to just have mains. I chose the haggis and chilli mash. It was good but I wanted it to be delicious. My friend enjoyed her gammon.
Great food! If you like mashed potatoes this is the place for you - plus plenty of main dishes overtop which we loved. Highly recommend!
Brilliant right from the moment we arrived lovely welcome from Andrew and fantastic service from Sasha. Delicious good quality food. Simple and satisfying.
A unique experience with great food and wonderful service. It was really nice to see good and different vegan options.
I was early for my booking and although they were really busy, they still found space for us.
The use of local ingredients, beers and ciders is also a plus. I was absolutely return again and recommend.
Good value, freshly cooked food, using quality produce. Friendly staff in a relaxed yet busy atmosphere. Would definitely eat there again.
Great food. Great service. Definitely going back again! Highly recommend
