We had a good time at the Whiski Room even though after a tour of the Western Isles we were a little whiskied out to start with. So I was super happy to find a good gin selection too; but I really hope they step up the on-tap beer selection to round off an otherwise great night out. I had really looked forward to the Steak the service was superbly friendly and helpful. Heartily recommend a night out at the Whiski Room.

This was a great spot. Very innovative to include whisky pairings with the entrees. If you enjoy single malts, this is the place for you. The selection and presentations are awesome. Choose from multiple flights, all depending on taste and cost. Lots to choose from. I went high end because I did not know when I might be back. It was worth every pound. My son enjoyed his flight immensely too. Service and ambiance were great. We had the window table which was wonderful. It was, however, a mild September might and it became a bit warm inside for me. This was my only complaint ( and not a serious one). Cheers.

The food at the Whiski Rooms was excellent and the service was exceptional. All staff were welcoming and helpful. They worked together as a team to ensure we had everything we needed. The atmosphere is warm and relaxing - perfect for an autumn night out - and the views over Edinburgh are spectacular,

We had a really pleasant dinner at Whiski rooms. The interior wasn't necessarily my favourite, but it suits the name - it is publike, but made a little more special with a beautiful rock wall. I had the lamb which was really succulent and tasty with roast vegetables. The puddings were super tasty - we had the sticky toffee pudding and the whisky carachan, which rounded the meal nicely. I must say the Old fashioned was the best Old fashioned I've ever had (which is what you'd expect from the name!). Additional lovely little detail was the hand cream used in the bathroom - it was Whisky and honey cream, and it was super soft!

Great location, had a window seat which was fantastic! We weren’t rushed at alll, only thing was we all had salads and didn’t think they were great value for money. Desserts were too expensive also we felt.

Haggis spring rolls w plum sauce was excellent. Main dishes were good but not amazing. The dessert however, sticky toffee pudding, was amazing. Best we had in Scotland or England. Definite recommend.

Excellent experience. I will remember the braised Pershire lamb shoulder for the rest of my days. Came with a family of 4, from New York City. Restaurant had a relaxed vibe but also sophisticated. All of our dishes were wonderful as well as my Smoky Old Fashion. Would recommend and go again if ever I am in Edinburgh.
