Great food. Friendly service. Casual atmosphere. Would recommend to all fans of the potato.
Very friendly, lovely music and fantastic food - really enjoyed our time there.
Went here while on a short break in Edinburgh. Wanted some hearty comfort food that was a little bit special. This ticked the boxes very well. Would recommend to anyone, and would definately visit again.
Good, wholesome local food. Staff attentive and worked hard. Complimentary pint of beer. Excellent value for money.
Had a great meal here the other night. The waitress was friendly and our food was delicious (big portions too). The white wine is absolutely terrible, but that’s not the restaurant’s fault.
Food was very tasty... especially the home made butternut squash soup!!
We had the vegetarian haggis, with the cheese & chive mash and the chicken marinated in Drambouie... with the cheese &bacon mash.... all was delicious!!
Would recommend to others!!
Found on a search of Restaurants in Edinburgh - good reviews. We were eating early as booked in for second performance of Tattoo - time between placing our order and the food being served was longer than expected in view of low number of diners - that said the food was worth the wait.
Makars have a well thought out and unusual menu strategy and concentrate on provide simple hearty meals under the heading of traditional Scottish/English. The food was hearty, wholesome and great value. We would definitely go again but don't expect a London style gastro pub.
Lovely meal, something a little different. An issue we had was dealt with immediately, professionally, nothing was a bother, staff were polite and friendly and a free drink was offered whilst the issue was sorted out. Food was very tasty and good value.
Absolutely wonderful very scrummie meal lots of choices _ friendly attentive staff, relaxing atmosphere and good value for money. Nice sweets as well
Came here after a couple of shows at the Fringe, not too busy, orders taken quickly and everything arrived in good time. The potato skins with cheese and salsa were tasty as were the mains. The portion size was fine, my wife did question whether the slaw was the best accompaniment for a main with gravy but beyond that no issues with Makars at all.
We had dinner last Thursday at the Makars Gourmet Mash Bar.
Great food, great waiter (Alex), nothing to critize!
Best regards from Leverkusen/Germany
Food , service and ambience all worked well. Vegetarian options different and tasty.
Missed out on ox cheeks and had haggis..excellent. great value for money
The food was amazing, staff exceptional and they brought out sticky toffee pudding "on the house" because it was my daughter's birthday. Couldnt recommend highly enough!
Was really looking forward to lamb shank and skirlie. Lamb shank not on menu, skirlie sold out(at 7pm). Second and third choices were not available either. Very disappointing on a birthday celebration. What we had was ok and the potato skins are delicious and different.
Had a lovely meal for 4 whilst at the Edinburgh festival.
Brilliant menu giving us a taste of haggis and mash which was very tasty and very well presented.
Seemed fitting as we were in Scotland.
Loved the vegetarian haggis with mash with cheese and chives and delicious turnip.
My partner loved the black pudding mash and scotch egg mmmmm
Unfortunately we were dashing to get to our next venue for the evening, ofherwise would have lingered there much longer.....my favoutite meal of our 3 night stay.
Found this place on Tripadvisor and can thoroughly recommend it fantastically friendly staff who explained the menu, when it arrived it well worth the trip really tastie and the accompanying sauce was out of this world, couldn’t manage a desert sadly
Brilliant place will be back again I’m sure
This was recommended to us by a friend and we were not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and the service and food was excellent. We enjoyed it so much so that we ate again at their restaurant in the old town of Edinburgh on the next evening and received the same quality food and fantastic service.
A relatively small menu, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but from the three of us, we were told on two of our orders that they were out of stock and no longer had it. We were not told this before we ordered but had to wait until we’d chosen before we were told which then made it a rush for us to pick an alternative. Food service was also relatively slow when the restaurant was around 75% full so more serving staff are needed.
Great food and excellent service. The veggie haggis skins are delicious. Will definitely be back soon.
Booked a table for 16:15 , arrived only to find the front door shutters half down and the opening times displayed in the window stating they open at 17:00. Disappointed in Makars and disillusioned with Open Table.
Tasty food, efficient and friendly service. Good value.
Arthur was amazing! Great service and super friendly :)
Great place for simple homecooked Scottish food. Staff were friendly and helpful. We were there to meet up with friends we had not seen in a while and we had a great table at the window so we were not disturbed by others.
Fantastic food with equally good service from the staff there who even helped with a special request on the night.
Good food, ambience, price and service. Home made beer!!!
Amazing good and service, great for a casual dinner
My Dad and I visited recently. You pick your main, then the mash to go with it. We had Ox cheek with spring onion and bacon mash, and lamb shank with black pudding mash. Both were lovely, and the meat was tender. We then had Gluten free brownie with ice cream, and Bramble sponge with cream, also lovely. The staff were attentive without being over bearing.
The only downside was the noise, which could not be helped by the staff, as there was a large and noisy group at the other end of the restaurant.
Great value and will visit again.
We really enjoy our Dinner!! Thanks to the Makars Team!
It was so good we came here twice. If you are looking for Scottish comfort food, which is reasonably priced, this is it. They also have a good selection of wines and beers
A great menu with good quality and delicious meals at a reasonable price. The service is very good too - friendly, professional, helpful and efficient. I'll definitely be back!
We were initially disappointed because having seen items we wanted to have on the menu we discovered they were running a reduced menu because of the event at Murrayfield.
Arthur recovered the situation well and what we did have we really enjoyed. Really good ingredients nicely prepared.
Maybe one day we will get to try the items we originally hoped to taste, we hope so.
Lovely food, just don't start singing, you will get told off
Surprisingly great food! Will definitely be back
Friendly, attentive staff. Delicious food. Accidental find while in holiday in Edinburgh and would absolutely return again.
Delicous tastes of Scotland, great service, a little quiet as newly opened but excellent food so go visit!
Absolutely outstanding on all fronts!!
Good food with fast friendly service. What more do you need!
Fantastic meal. Delicious food. Cooked perfectly. Mash is to die for. Will definitely be back.
