Another nice meal. It was quiet for a Saturday afternoon but that was quite nice as we had a good chat. The food was good and so was the wine. It is a bit more relaxing than eating in the main hotel restaurant but offers many of the same food items on the menu.
I visited on Wednesday morning for a quick coffee and breakfast before a very full day of work. The atmosphere was quiet and relaxing and our waitress was so accommodating and friendly. The food wasn't especially exciting - but I only had scrambled eggs on toast so that might be why. Thanks.
We went specially for brunch as seen on the open table app but if was not available and had not been at the advertised time or with the advertised menu apparently for months
So although the serving staff asked the chef to accommodate us they refused
So my son had fish and chips for breakfast and I had a very small - 3 egg omelette- so disappointing
I booked Monboddo for a birthday treat for 2 friends and we had a great experience. The afternoon tea is delicious and fresh and there was plenty of tea and coffee on offer alongside it. They brought out a little plate with happy birthday written on it in chocolate for the 2 of them which was a nice touch. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly. Have been before and would go again.
Love the place my mum wanted a cocktail that want on the menu and the lovely lady who was serving is happily agreed to make a strawberry mojito. Would defiantly recommend the place to friends and family and will be back for another visit
We visited for the scheduled Jazz night which was cancelled an hour after our arrival. Staff only advised after we'd ordered so were stuff unable to leave with no other customers or atmosphere. Very disappointing.
When the food cane it was good. On arrival, though, no one knew anything about us or our booking - or even the afternoon tea option - despite the fact that we were the only customers at that stage. I was sent to the main restaurant and then had to come back. At least, as the staff were busy chatting amongst themselves we were left in peace.
Excellent customer service and lovely afternoon tea
The "crudites to share" was a hit - the hummus with unidentified seed-like topping in the pot was delicious! I ordered the veggie burger which was fresh and moist. We had 6 people in our party. The ambiance was great and we were surprised to see that we had a great view of fireworks over the castle from where we were sitting. The only real downside was the meal took longer than we had hoped and we had to hurry to catch the show afterward.
The food was average, the dessert of chocolate brownie was dreadful, very dry and tasteless. When it was quiet at the start of the meal the service was fine but it was non existent once the bar got busy. I had to get up and ask for things 3 times. Wouldn't go back for a meal but nice place for a drink.
Stuck in a previous era- menu badly needs updating & could do with some healthy options. At least the staff are nice!
Helpful staff, tasty food, good choices
Service really really poor. Booked via open table, when we arrived we were scolded by staff for not detailing whether we wanted food and drinks. No table reserved. Food was nice but took ages. Staff were not attentive at all, never asked us if we wanted more drinks. Didn't ask if we wanted desserts or coffee. The place was empty and we were forgotten about. No good enough, in fact I would say avoid and I'm sorry if any visitor to Edinburgh goes here as they will be very disappointed. Poor, poor, poor.
Booked for breakfast and when got there didn't offer it! Looked please tell enough in there but didn't really help us when realised we had booked it through open table as ala carte breakfast. Manager after a while said we could go in main breakfast room but that a per head price.
we were not in Mondboddo at all! On arrival, having booked a table for dinner for 7 people via 'open table', we were met with odd looks: Monboddo is not a restaurant, it only has bar food. they directed us across the way to the Brasserie, where they were not expecting us at all, but after a bit of fussing they got us a table ( thanks!)
Service was painfully slow and the waiter did not understand English very well.
Nice burger. Bacon added on request. More than satisfied my hunger.
