Nice food , nice place , the male waiter was lovely but the female was a bit rude and abrupt , would go again though
We went for Sunday breakfast. Quality of food was disappointing. The smashed avocado was puréed smooth and tasteless. The bread was basic sliced loaf nothing special like a rustic sourdough or seeded. Fell far short of expectations and other local restaurants. The service was good and the interior was nice.
Fab afternoon - guy who served us was amazing and was very professional.
Felt very relaxed and safe under covid rules. Definitely visit again.
A bottle of wine and some lunch outside was lovely especially as the sun came out after a couple of very windy days. Good place to people watch while enjoying a drink or 2.
Lovely welcome and great service. everything in place to make us feel very safe.
Staff were so friendly and attentive, service was quick. Food was delicious and drinks were fab. Couldn’t fault the place. Good to see covid measures were fully in place to keep everyone safe.
Had booked a table 3 days prior to dining .When we arrived was given a table at an open door and after waiting over 20 minutes for someone to serve us. we left .Very poor service
The service was extremely slow, took twenty five minutes after being seated to be asked what we’d like to drink.
Great staff and drinks. Comfy chairs and clean toilets. Great views by windows too
Was a lovely lunch for start to finish.
The staff were very friendly and efficient. Food and drinks were reasonably priced and good.
Looking forward to our next visit.
We didn't have food so can't comment on that. Ordered a couple of cocktails but the measures were pretty small, teeny glasses only filled 2/3 of the way so felt a bit ripped off. Lovely bar, nice area to sit in, great for people watching.
Nice food ! I recommend it 100%. The atmosphere was really nice.
Great to have this place reopened, such a relaxed vibe and great staff.
We had a brilliant time. Drinks were great. Service was great and the food was delicious. Would definitely recommend and will definitely return.
COVID secure with temp check on arrival. Great table with view of the castle and watching the world go by. Brunch was great and everyone enjoyed their meal. Would be good if you can get choice of brunch or lunch menu, minor gripe. Will be back 👍
Staff were very friendly and helpful, would happily recommend.
Ran out of steaks service extremely slow put at very small table for 3 people to eat
Excellent service and food. Great selection of drinks. Had a lovely afternoon in the Huxley.
Lovely bar but very pricey!!
Staff amazing, felt really safe and food great as always. Would highly recommend here.
Food and service was great and good value for money
Lovely visit to The Huxley last weekend. All covid precautionary measures in place and the staff were brilliant and a really good laugh as usual! 100% recommend :)
Always love coming here, great staff, great service and tasty bites to eat. Great central location.
Good food for the price, cocktails were nice but service was somewhat slow. Had to regularly call the waiting staff over to get their attention for drinks.
Last minute drinks, expensive.
The food and service was excellent. The only thing was the temperature inside the restaurant but that's because of covid measures, so in a "normal" day everything will be amazing!
We booked for a meal and were put on a small round table in the middle of the room which was not adequate, the service was appalling my partner eventually had to go and ask a waiter to take our order, the food was mediocre and overall it wasn’t the best experience won’t be back.
Lovely bar restaurant. I always make a point of coming here whdn I visit Edinburgh. I’ve booked Sunday breakfast to finish my weekend. Well worth it.
Excellent service and friendly staff. Only had nibbles but they were delicious.
Food was hit and delicious great service friendly staff
Hi LindaM, Thanks for the lovely review. Hope to see you again soon!
First time in a year and a half three nurses were able to meet up due to the Covid pandemic. We have been friends for over 20yrs. It was so nice to sit & chat in what felt like a safe space. My friends had a variety of cocktails and I stuck to the elderflower mock tail all got a thumbs up. The food was delicious and the staff attentive.
Thanks for the lovely review. We loved serving you and hopefully see you again. Simon
Great pandemic era restaurant service, but not cool that track and trace information stored by my partner used for marketing purposes, and drinks v expensive (5 for two little fever tree tonics?!)
Hi Russ, Thanks for the kind words about the service. Just to confirm we do not keep your data but only for track and trace purposes. It is stored safely for 3 weeks and then we do not keep this information. Sorry you did not like our prices however, we try to be very competitive for what we offer in the local area. Simon
So good to be able to go back here for breakfast, never disappoints!
Hi NickF, Great to hear you still love our brunch offering. Hopefully see you again soon. Thanks for the 5 stars!
We had a pleasant meal in a lively atmosphere. Effort effort was made to look after two of our party with coeliac disease. The gentleman looking after us was kind, efficient, informed about our dietary needs.
Hi Missmanda, Thank you for the lovely words in your review. Glad we accommodated you so well. Simon
The staff was so attentive and accommodating to our group. It was our first outing with friends in more than a year and the staff made sure it was a very special night for us. We enjoyed the cocktails and the food very much and the boys loved their tower of beer. We will definitely be returning.
Hi AuntVicki, So happy to read this review. Glad we made your day special and hope to see you again soon. Simon
Great atmosphere in The Huxley. Friendly attentive staff and service was very good. Enjoyed our time there.
Thanks for your kind words in your review. See you again soon!
I have given food 2 in order to move on but did not have food. Loved my experience with you and found the staff very friendly and helpful. They seemed to enjoy their job.
Hi EileenH, Thanks for the lovely review. Hopefully you can come in for food next time too, and you are correct; all the team are delighted to be back working so glad you noticed that :) Simon
Excellent food and service . Will definitely be back.
