Dinner was delicious and the atmosphere relaxed and thoroughly enjoyable. Service was prompt, pleasant and just the right level of attention. I would definitely recommend and might even call in later for a cocktail (if they can find us a table).
Great food service, place warm and welcoming would visit again
Food was plentifull but could have been warmer. Chips were a little greasy for my taste. Service was good without being overly attentive. Decor is a little dated.
Was recommended by a few friends and was disappointed by our overall experience. The food was average and over priced and the service was poor. Our waiter not once offered a menu for whisky or after dinner drinks, the staff was very clearly keen to finish up for the night as they were rushing around, banging plates, glasses and coffee cups. After having a wonderful experience across Edinburgh in terms of service we were made to feel like unwanted customers here.
Our first visit, and would certainly book again. When mentioning portions in recent years the norm seems to be on the meagre size. This wasn't the case here, indeed we both struggled to finish the excellent fare.
Fantastic food, served quickly. A lovely atmosphere aswell! Would definitely recommend
Excellent food. Excellent service. Highly recommend this lovely restaurant.
The risotto was labeled as vegan but definitely had dairy as I’m lactose intolerant and was ill after. The rice was also undercooked. A shame given the prices.
Great meal, served by super friendly staff.
Haggis spring rolls were superb, as was the lobster Mac n cheese.
Portions were generous so made a dent in the Cranachan!
All rounded off with a wee dram 🥃
Fantastic service, just went in for drinks so didn’t have food. Staff really friendly and knowledgeable
Very nice place with friendly staff, food and ambience was spot on and not too busy
Great service and took care for our baby. It was great!
Nice decor with ambient lighting. However, as we were here for our anniversary (noted on table booking), we were seated on a table in the middle of the room, so can't say it was romantic.
Menu is kept simple - personally I like that there isn't a huge selection. I'd describe it as upmarket pub grub. We both opted for haggis spring rolls - absolutely delicious! Good sized portion. I then chose the steak and ale pie - lovely thick gravy, soft meat. Good sized portion - couldn't finish this on top of the starter. Husband opted for the haggis burger - big portion of haggis on this with the chips, husband also couldn't finish it all. Cannot comment on the dessert menu as we couldn't have eaten anymore.
Although I don't think we'd return, we did enjoy the food and I am happy to recommend.
Was a lovely meal, fish was amazing, haggis was so tasty. Would recommend to anyone. First class service.
Had a lovely meal service was great and would recommended it to family and friends.xx
Fabulous Restaurant, staff were incredibly friendly and helpful with advice and recommendations. First time we have eaten Haggis (Starter), it was delicious. Mains were Haddock & Chips and Salmon with Herby Mash. We would loved to have tried a dessert but we're so full from the food.
When we return to Edinburgh we shall definitely return to Whiski Rooms, but next time we will try a Whisky Flight.
Loved the place!
We had a great evening meal at the Whiski Rooms. We choose the Cream of Mushroom Soup and the Cullen Skink for appetizers. Both dishes were very flavorful and served hot and fresh. For the mains, we enjoyed the Braised Perthshire Lamb and the Venison Loin. These dishes were both carefully prepared and beautifully presented. The lamb was delicious, and the venison juicy and tender. The vegetables that accompanied the dishes were also fresh and tasty. We would definitely choose it again. The ambiance in the restaurant was casual, warm, and friendly.
What a beautiful place to eat, very cosy, intimate atmosphere. Characterful decor. Great, friendly service. Delicious food. I had the chicken with a wild mushroom sauce. So glad we booked this in advance, as it proved very popular.
Wonderful food and excellent staff. Try the gingerbread auld fashioned!
Pleasant environment with good service, good food and good value.
I've been several times to The Whiski Rooms and have always enjoyed my meal.
It has always been a must visit for tourists as it is so central to the main tourist trail and has a great whisky selection.Prices have always been slightly higher because of this but I was a bit shocked to see how much they have risen since Covid. I think £9 for a dessert is on the steep side, especially as it had to be returned due to the sticky toffee pudding having been microwaved so much that the spoon couldn't cut into the sponge and the toffee sauce was dangerously hot!
The waitress was very apologetic and it was replaced promptly with a more edible one.
Great Scottish cuisine
Burger excellent as was Lobster Bun
You will be full
We enjoyed an excellent meal of fresh haddock and lobster. The environment is lovely a little noisey when full. Service was friendly and very prompt we will be coming again on our next visit to Edinburgh.
From the location, the service, and especially the food we had a fabulous experience. We will most certainly be back
Very tasty food with a good choice and an excellent selection of drinks.
Delicious treat for us. The meat was succulent and fresh. Service fantastic with a wonderful ambience. Would return. A bit pricey but understandable for the quality.
This was a surprise for my hubby’s birthday. My drink came flat the gas was off, so took them 15mins to replace which came with a glass with a massive chip. The mans comment was not we apologise it was I love chips!!! Then I asked for a steak well done due to being 6months pregnant. It’s came with running of blood! So I end up with a handful of chips as they were in a tin everything else covered in the blood. The place is not what it seems online, very dirty and tired. We came all the way from Glasgow. We wouldn’t recommend
Lovely wee quirky place. Would definitely go back.
Fantasticfood and great service. Waiting staff very attentive regarding allergies.
Great food and great atmosphere! Staff were very accommodating.
Lovely ambiance and great food . Loved the location
Great service, great whisky flights, enjoyable time.
One of the best plates of food i have eaten in the last year. Service excellent, bit dark inside.
Great atmosphere. Great place for whiskey tasting and a taste of authentic Scottish food.
Great restaurant, lovely atmosphere! Fantastic food. Would go back 👍
Had a great time in the Whisky Rooms. The Service and Food was brilliant and atmosphere great. Would highly recommend.
A touristy experience, the food was terrible and expensive.
Great service. Couldn’t have been easy serving us although we weren’t too noisy. The food, and choice, was impressive. Managed to get something gluten free. More gluten free options might be worth looking at? Fantastic whisky menu, as the name would suggest! Great experience.
Lovely dinner with great service and nice atmosphere.
