We are proud to provide an authentic Italian dining experience.
Friday - Saturday: 11:30 - 23:00
Having never even been to Dalkeith before, I read the reviews for all the restaurants in the area when I was charged with finding somewhere to eat for meeting friends for lunch. Thankfully, we booked The Cavaliere. The front looks very unassuming, but going in, the interior is very stylish and modern. The staff were very welcoming, professional and attentive from start to finish. Food was well cooked and tasted great.
If we are ever back that way , we would definitely go in again.
Big thank you to The Cavaliere.
Not be in the restaurant for years, the place is very clean and beautiful decor, The food is superb, staff very nice , will be back .
The Cavaliere is probably our favourite restaurant. The food is fantastic. The staff are amazing. It always feels special. We visit far too often for our pocket but who cares! We always take friends here to dine when they visit. Feels like a second home! Maybe worth getting a loyalty card in place!!
Excellent meal with first class service. Children in party treated great with magic tricks providing a lovely extra touch. Family run & certainly family friendly.
Great night as always thanks & very polite attentive staff keep up the good work guys
food as usual was great, some really good cocktails all served by friendly staff
Food and service were amazing as always. Would highly recommend the restaurant to anyone.
I booked very late on a Saturday night for a group, the booking was accepted and we all really enjoyed our food. We have a number of eaters with special dietary requirements and everyone loved the food they had.
Perfect as usual. All the waiting staff are so courteous and helpful.
Lovely cosy restaurant, was very busy but service was excellent, friendly staff, food was amazing and good value for the quality, definitely be back.
Great service, food was good quality for the price with plenty choice and great for kids too. One of the waiters did magic tricks with the kids which was entertaining. Will definitely be back.
Booked here for mother’s day. Can not fault the staff who work here, they provide excellent service and are very friendly. Usually the food is great however we weren’t so impressed by it on this occasion. The soup I was served was awful, I couldn’t eat it at all. The waiter took the price off the bill, even though I didn’t mention it or and didn’t intend to. The pizza I was served wasn’t even scored and I had to cut it using a knife which took a while, had a pizza before that was cut for me. It was also well done, slightly burnt. Would still return and hope the food is better next time.
First time to the new look Cavaliere - looks really nice inside. Meal was pretty good although they did apologise for over cooking my Calzone and then took this off my bill (not at my request-so nice gesture). Overall let down by service which was very slow...over 1 hour for starter and all in 2 hours for 2 courses seemed too long. Did have a feeling that this was an ‘upsell’ tactic with drinks aplenty on offer.
So we met my folks here with our three children for a belated birthday celebration meal. Waiters were so friendly and they couldn’t have been more fun with the kids - we even got a card trick and lollies when leaving. The service was prompt and the food very good. It is relatively pricey but I think you pay for what you get . Would definitely go back and check out the lunch menu. (toilets immaculate for those interested!)
This is a lovely restaurant since it was refurbished. Nice menu however at our last visit we mentioned that the spaghetti bolognese (which 3 of us had) was too salty. The cost of one if the dishes was deducted from our bill which was OK as we had managed to eat most of it. Have visited this restaurant several times over the last few months and this is the first time there was a problem. Staff all very friendly. Good music.
Great food and service
One of our many visits to this restaurant. Excellent Food, very attentive staff, Great value for money. Definitely recommend to everyone.
Been here a number of times allways great service and great food ,it was my wife's birthday.
Lovely place to eat, has been done up to a very high standard. Good food, friendly staff and great atmosphere. We'll be back soon!
Family dinner with children and a required disabled access.
Food was excellent and both set menu and a la Carter used.
Staff were very attentive and polite.
In newly opened room which was spacious, and comfortable.
An enjoyable night for all.
very loud, music was too loud could not hear the waiter when taking order then large crowd came in. This ruined the whole night unable to talk , sore head could not wait to get. Been in many busy restaurants but never experienced anything like this don't know what they have done in the refurb but acoustics terrible. They stated that they are getting separate function suite but large crowd was not just the problem.
Great experience will definitely recommend this restaurant
6 adults & one child on a Saturday night to celebrate a 60th. Service was great, food was great. When dessert came out the waiting staff had put a sparkler & candle on my dad's cake & sang happy birthday. Brilliant touch & my dad loved it. We will all be back again.
been many times always been really good, great refurbishment recently.
Excellent service and great food will certainly go back
Had dinner on Sat night with 5 other girlfriends. Food & cocktails were lovely, although our mains came out & 1 friend was waiting for a side plate of onion rings & because we were waiting awhile she cancelled that order. Waiter said it was no problem. Great local restaurant *
Very nice local Italian Resturant outside of Edinburgh.
Excellent decor and service food and choice very good
Another lovely meal and wine at our local Italian restaurant. Lovely venue- we' ll be back again soon😊
Good staff,child - friendly, great food with wide choice. Only negative it was a bit noisy but that
was only because of groups having fun and enjoying themselves.
Excellent service and lovely food. We used the set menu and had lots of choice on starters and mains. Waiter was very professional not at all intrusive and cleared the empty plates promptly. Will definitely go back.
Father's Day dinner
Beautiful decor since its revamp.staff always friendly efficient helpful pleasant. Good menu choices. Value for money. Would recommend to anyone. It's atmosphere is ideal for groups or couples. Caters for any occasion. Staff are so attentive.
Lovely meal at Cavalier last week-end. Lovely food. Waiter very knowledgeable about both wine and extended menu items. All staff very friendly and welcoming. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and look forward to a return visit soon.
Restaurant has had a much needed makeover however the food is just the same, and i mean still as good! Great service, friendly staff and generous portion sizes, we all enjoyed our meal. Just like most restaurants i wish the tables were round, but that aside we all had a great time and will return again very soon. Well done guys
the Cavaliere has been very nicely refurbished since our last visit, but it has kept all of its charm , good food and excellent staff. We were there for a wedding anniversary so opted for the specials and we were not disappointed. The wine we selected was not at all expensive but was really nice .. and we perhaps had too much .. but then it was a special occasion. The tiramisu in the Cavaliere was always good, but I'd say it was better. Friendly attentive service as always.
The Cavalier refurb is amazing, what a difference. Great staff and fantastic food, the swordfish was delicious. Can't wait to go back ....
Over all everything was very good,the only thing that was disappointing was the price of the drinks the wine was very expensive cheapest was about £17.00 a bottle for a very average wine up to £25.00
Warmly welcomed. Comfortable clean stylish and spacious restaurant. Music played quietly in background. Fantastic service and head waiter monitoring and directing the staff to ensure everyone was being attended to without being overbearing. The food arrived in good time and was delicious. Wonderful.
Delicious food and great service - would definitely go again
