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!
Braised Lamb Shank Slow Cooked In Rosemary, Red Wine & Cranberries
The lamb shank is slowly braised with fresh rosemary, garlic, tomatoes & red wine. Possibly the most perfect accompaniment to mash possible
Black Pudding Mash
If you haven't tried this before, it is quite simply brilliant! Staff favourite & recommended for any dish
Mini Haggis, Neeps & Tatties Taster
A perfect beginners option for those new to Haggis. Small plate of our haggis, potato, turnip with a peppercorn sauce
Unbelievably good food and great service! 10/10 Will always come here when in Edinburgh.
Really good quirky meal. Meat was excellent and enjoyed the mash and a lovely seat in the window. Would definitely recommend and book in advance
Very good meal out after being locked away like a hermit. Really different menu. 6 of us all had different dishes. 6 clean plates. Really enjoyed this and highly recommend.
Great service, very welcoming and friendly 😊
Food was good, well presented and good choices for vegans.
Drinks menu also good.
Would definitely recommend.
We were recommended this restaurant and we weren't disappointed.
The food and staff were excellent. Lovely place to relax and have a fabulous meal, cooked to perfection. Will come again on our next visit.
Great food. Vibrant atmosphere and professional courteous staff. Would definitely come back to eat when visiting Edinburgh.
What a gem of a place. Our food was delicious and the service was excellent. Will definitely book again when we’re next visiting Edinburgh. Thank you for a wonderful dinner.
Lovely place! Lamb shank is awesome and haggis is soft and tasty. Ben gives us a worm service and choose wonderful sauce for us! Definitely worth you go and have a try.
Food was fantastic, especially the lamb shank, Scottish cheese mash, and brownie for dessert. Friendly staff and comfortable environment. Must eat when visiting Edinburgh and location is convenient.
We’d seen the reviews for Makars, and understood how popular it was, but were still surprised quite how great the food and service was. Quite honestly one of the nicest meals we’ve had in years, and will definitely be back again.
Such a great lunch! Will be coming back next time we’re in edinburgh - would recommend to anyone. Great for dietary requirements and food intolerances.
Excellent food and service. The mashed tatties were utterly amazing. Lovely little restaurant. Will definitely be back.
I love mashed potato and I love it here! Wonderful mashed potato choices... vegetarian haggis for me. Fabulously friendly service too
Great meal but the friendliness of the staff was the best part. Very friendly & welcoming.

After a cold, wet day in Edinburgh, having a lovely, comforting meal at Makers was just the best thing. The staff were really helpful, polite and entertaining.
Great food, great service, great location. Big shout out to David for making our visit extra special!
We really enjoyed our meal here , the staff were amazing and the food was spectacular would highly recommend and will be coming back to visit again!
Such a friendly pleasant waiter for our table - nothing too much trouble - he whipped up an Aperol Spritz for me though not actually on the menu. I had the haggis and my husband the beef - we both really enjoyed the food.
Very delicious food and great service! We sat outside and the weather was beautiful!
Delicious food and staff had good patter. The gravy and mash was on point.
As ever food and service was excellent. Highly recommended.
Very good quality food from a no-fuss, easy-to-choose-from menu. Delicious desserts too. Excellent, friendly service, and very good value for money. Would highly recommend for these wintry summer days.
SOME FOOD SOLD OUT, A LITTLE BIT PITY. IT IS POSSIBLE TO COME AGAIN
One of the best meals we have had in a long time! Definitely be back
Simple idea, executed well. Quality meats, mash and gravy. Excellent staff and comfortable, casual surroundings with good attention to covid safety measures
