I had the haggis which was tasty but got food envy when lady on the next table got her venison served as it looked outstanding.
Service was excellent and the decor, view, ambience was stellar.
I recommend a visit!

The service and food at the Whisky Rooms is always exceptional. The food is definitely the best ‘pub’ food in Edinburgh, it’s delicious and exceptionally good value for money. We also love that they used local produce. The service is also outstanding, like waitress last night was very friendly and made our experience so much better as she was happy to banter and despite the masks we know there was always a smile on her face. We would highly recommend a visit to the Whisky Rooms 😀

Lovely restaurant in central Edinburgh. We had a table next to the window, so the view was nice. Great menu containing plenty of local ingredients, including seafood, fish and lamb. My daughter had lamb and I had Lobster macaroni cheese. Both were delicious, the portions were generous. Great service and nice ambience. Would visit again when in Edinburgh.

I ordered chicken and avocado salad as a main but it came with no avocado at all. However the chicken was nicely cooked.
My daughter had the four cheese macaroni which she said was nice.
The service was fairly average although they may have been training new staff as well

Brilliant whiskey tasting experience with the Flights. Get to compare and contrast different ones. Service friendly. A bit cheeky and very informal. Food ok. The real star is the whiskey!

Food and service were both excellent. Disappointing are such a lovely meal to be told we can’t pay in cash and they didn’t accept American Express! The attitude of the member of staff dealing with this really let the whole experience down for us.

Great food, especially the sticky toffee pudding! Would've been nicer to be at a table near a window as it is quite dark if you're sat further back. Wouldn't be an issue in winter as much. Would still recommend!
