Whiski Rooms is located off the Royal Mile in the city centre looking over Princess Street where you will experience traditional Scottish food.
Visited here twice on different occasions to Edinburgh
Didn’t disappoint great food and location
The veggie haggis was not bad, not as good as the reviews. A wee bit spicier would have been good. Service was excellent.
Excellent food. Would go back for sure. We had the slow cooked lamb with roasted vegetables and it was superb. For starters we had the salmon three ways which was delicious. Dessert was yummy too. Recommend.
A lovely evening with great flights of whisky and excellent food
We had a lovely family meal together, 6 of us and were treated wonderfully. Amazing food and drink within a lovely atmosphere. Great price and great location, we’ll be back for more!
We came back after 6 years and experienced the same good food&drink, friendly staff and nice atmosphere,
It was the perfect place to meet up with friends for a spot of lunch. We had a lovely window seat, looking out over Princes Street. The food was very tasty (I had the fish and chips) ! We were looked after by a very efficient young man, who even took time to chat to us. It was very handy for the station, which one of my friends was using.
We were a group of 8, visiting Edinburgh for the weekend. The service was great, the food was spot on, ambience was perfect, in a stylish, central location. Thank you!
My husband and myself visited whiski rooms while staying in Edinburgh celebrating my husband's birthday. We had a wonderful meal. We would highly recommend taking a visit of you are in the area
This was the second time I visited Whiski Rooms. The first time was amazing. The second time it was just the short blonde haired waitress which spoiled the entire birthday evening. She was short tempered and clearly not interested in good service. Two things stood out when our food arrived. My fiance asked why her bearnaise sauce was brown, and she said that it was indeed bearnaise sauce and that's the colour of the sauce. It turned out to be Pepper Sauce. A scary proposition if you consider allergy reactions. The second was when I asked why if medium rare at this restaurant is equal to medium well done at other restaurants. She said it is indeed cooked medium rare, which is wasn't when I consulted another waitress. It was not a good experience, and we're not ever heading back, and will not recommend it to friends.
Wonderful place for dinner if you're visiting Edinburgh. I asked our waitress to decide if I should get the lamb or the venison. She recommended the lamb. The venison dish is what came to our table and it was so good I just ate it and never mentioned the mixup!
The food was lovely as where the staff....food and drink is a bit pricey ... it’s more for the tourists than the locals .
Excellent food, quick service. Haggis was delicious.
We really enjoyed our time at Whiski Rooms.
Kim did a great job. It was s fullfilled customer experience.
Super Essen, erstklassiger Whisky, freundlicher und aufmerksamer Service.
Really nice staff, food was excellent! Even gave my dad a birthday dessert which was really nice of them!
Lovely restaurant, great food and great location. The service was very good
Location, ambience, service and food is exceptional .
Simply superb! High quality food, friendly and informed service, good value and superb selection of whisky all delivered in a relaxed, informal ambience. Highly recommend this bistro.
Scottish pub feel with five star food and whiskey. A definite must for dining while in Edinburgh!
Have to try the braised lamb shoulder! It's to die for! Everything else was very good & we had a great time there!
Very good. Restaurant was quiet and our table was at the window. Two of us had the fish and chips which were visually stunning and a taste sensation. Veggie burger was a treat as was the apple tart. Staff were attentive and courteous. A great time was had by all and we ll def be back 😄
Classy without being posh, great service (thank you Kim, you've been amazing), amazing food, perfect whisky pairings, and an outstanding selection. My friends and I had a wonderful time. Would definitely go back on my next visit to Edinburgh!
Thought the location was good, food had good flavour would definitely consider eating there again.
Food was average. Expectation was that there would be exceptional knowledge around food and whiskey pairings- very little knowledge by the staff member for recommended whiskey pairs to compliment out food choice. Food itself was very basic and very average standard. The whole evening was overpriced for the experience we got. Would not select this restaurant again as there are so many other fantastic options in Edinburgh.
We had an excellent time at Whiski Rooms as part of a family dinner. We had a mix of experienced and inexperienced whisky drinkers and all felt comfortable and well catered for. The service was amazing and our waiter Michael went above and beyond in every way. Would highly recommend.
The food and the service were both excellent. Will definitely go back and would recommend to anyone who is looking for a good value restaurant in the heart of Edinburgh.
Great first meal out in Edinburgh! The Cullen skink and Scottish salmon were outstanding. Very attentive service and cosy atmosphere.
Service was great, ambience great just let down by my ribeye. Asked for medium rare but came medium to well done and was on the small thin side. Not the high quality you expect for just under £30.
Despite a full restaurant the service was excellent with quick turnaround and outstanding dishes and drinks. I will definitely recommend Whiski Rooms and eat there again.
Fantastic food and terrific service! Our waiter was incredibly friendly. We ordered 4 different mains and each were delicious!
Sorry this place is not for me we went at night for the al a carte the wine was far too expensive £26 for a bottle of red that only was ok, And the food was disappointing
Excellent service and great variety of whiskies. Would reccomend the whisky tasting menu.
Service was ridiculously fast, we had starter within 5 minutes - before we finished our aperitif - and main within 20 minutes. It was and felt rushed and so a "special" dinner for two completely lost its appeal...…..
Really nice place to eat but we thought the food was average. Staff very nice and helpful.
This was our first visit and would definitely go back.
The food and service was excellent. Thank you!
We came to the whiskey rooms after my dad recommended it to us , and we definitely were not disappointed. Really friendly and attentive staff and the food was excellent. My self and my partner could not have asked for a better experience Very lovely atmosphere would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Edinburgh .
Excellent service, delicious menu and a lively atmosphere. Enjoyed it so much we went twice! The Haggis was delicious and the recommendations for Malt Whisky was perfect.
Lovely restaurant, cosy with soft lighting. My partner had the Cullen skink to start and said it was delicious. She then had the lamb which fell off the bone. I had the chicken which was also delicious and had a very subtle sauce. The service was excellent and we didn't feel rushed. Would definitely visit again if in Edinburgh
Really outstanding and authentic Scottish experience. I had the venison which was plentiful and tender. Each dish has a pairing with a single malt scotch and the waiter was very knowledgeable about the various kinds of Scottish whisky. Brilliant!
