Metro at Apex Grassmarket
Lovely food, menu and setting. The service was friendly and they were trying very hard but there just weren’t enough staff.
For a restaurant attached to a hotel, it was very good. You may lose some individuality but the service was very efficient and friendly. The food was tasty and portion size adequate and we would recommend.
Nice value in Old Town/Grassmarket. Got the 3-course dinner for 20£, which is rare in this area. Though the burger was a bit dry, the fish and chips passed the test and the salmon app was sizable and yummy. The sticky toffee pudding beats the pecan treacle tart ;) Service was attentive. Would come again for the value and the views on Grassmarket!
This is in the Apex hotel. It has a modern setting but full glass windows looking out on a classic street making for good people watching.
We had the pre fix menu meals and they were really good. The Haggis starter and haddock starters were very tasty. I had the flank steak and my wife had the chicken. All prepared very well.
The chocolate pot cake dessert was a nice finish.
All and all a good night out.
We are on a vacation to Scotland. It was our first meal on the day of arrival. We were happy to have a meal without leaving the hotel. Plus it was pouring rain. The Metro is modern feeling and appropriate and affordable for any size family. They offer a value meal, two choices for 15 pounds plus a small glass of house wine, if you so desire. We had two delicious breakfasts there. The pancakes were my best ever. They also have a small upstairs area where we saw a family sit with small children so they would not disrupt the rest of the diners. The staff was very friendly. Nice place.
A phenomenal meal. Brilliant presentation and wonderfully prepared food
Value for money, the meals arrive quickly and are hot and if you have a window seat there is a great view of the castle.
Poor service. I had bought a dinner, bed and breakfast package for my self and three children. The waitress argued with me that my deal meant the children eat free from the kids menu, she wouldn't listen or check my reservation to prove we were all to eat from the main menu. On leaving she apologised as she had made a mistake and given the children the wrong choice. This meant I had over paid for the stay as the kids eat free any way, also as I didn't have the extra budget to buy meals from the main menu the children missed out on what should have been a fancy dinner (they called it ). Very embarrassing as the waitress kept repeating the word free all this in ear shot of other diners.
Reviews posted on open table did not reflect our experience. Food was subpar, service was horrible, and selection was half what the menu suggested. By the time we had received our first drink the meal was already there. Just wanted to get out of the restaurant once we sat down.
My wife had eaten here before approximately 12 years ago and had an amazing meal, now many years later we found ourselves In Edinburgh with our now grown up daughters and looking for somewhere to eat, this came up and we remembered the stunning views over the castle and decided to give it a whirl.
On arrival we were greeted and seated, we elected for cocktails to start and then ordered from the two course menu, two had the haddock and I had the flatiron steak, our youngest went for the burger., the portions were very generous, the food was delicious, truly we have eaten in many fine establishments but this was in the top 1% .
The desserts too were awesome, I had the simple vanilla ice cream, roasted almonds and coated in a chocolate sauce and it was simply divine.
This service was attentive , the cocktails awesome and the good divine.
A very underrated gem in Edinburgh, give it a try I doubt you will be disappointed
Lovely little bistro looking onto the vibrant Grassmarket. Not too ordinary, not too fancy, just right.
Great food and the set menu is very good value for money.
We went on valentines night and they provided us with a free glass of wine each.
Nice location with a great view of the Castle, very nice food with great service. They are very accomodating for providing vegan options even though they are not specifically noted on the menu.
Excellent food and service , would highly recommend the restaurant
Cibo buono. Servizio attento.
When I went I had a prize voucher which was a 3 course meal for 2 and a bottle of wine, as I am not a wine drinker I asked if there wa a possibility we could get drinks to he equivalent amount of the bottle, they were extremely accommodating with this request. The service was also very quick and staff were lovely
Food was very good with great selection of dishes. Staff were lovely and extremely helpful. Would certainly recommend this place to friends.
Lovely food and in a vibrant part of the City, service was quick which helped as we were off to the Tattoo after - which was brilliantly close also.
Very good food, the sweet potato and chickpea cassoulet was really tasty. Staff very friendly and attentive,
Disappointing experience! Waiters had no idea what they were doing - turned a relaxing evening to one that we just wished to end!!
A lovely view and very friendly service, the food was excellent with good choice
Great service really good food
The selection of the food was excellent. Amazing dishes where one taste complemented another. Very approachable and friendly staff happy to help with recommendations. Over all nice relaxed restaurant. Thank you for a great night!
We went for dinner on the last night of our stay in Edinburgh. The food and service was superb, highly recommended.
Lovely meal, very well presented. Staff great, good service. Well done, will be back.
Our experience was brilliant, with helpful staff and very good cuisine. This was our wedding meal and we truly can't fault it. Excellent!
Modern decor highlights the very contemporary menu. Each course was presented beautifully and tasted even better that it looked. Our server was attentive but unobtrusive. Small wine list with very reasonable pricing. We loved it!
Love the sharing side went with husband had 4 meals to share then sweets food hot and good service would go back
We thought that the meal was a mish mash of many kinds of cuisine but they did not always go well together.
in edinburgh for the day from preston had seen tony singh on tv so gave the restaurant a try would recommend it very good
Like Tony Singh himself, the menu is slightly off the wall. Think fusion on speed with food from India, Argentina, USA, Korea, Cambodia, Peru, Scotland and Bangkok. It's more a sharing menu, have a couple of dishes each. Good size portions, not tiny Tapas size.
Located on the Grassmarket, a lively pub area below the rear of the castle, its a great place to people watch.
I'm a big fan of Tony's since his brilliant Oloroso days - but I was left underwhelmed. Nothing bad at all, just not great.
Booked a table as was visiting the Fringe Festival. Simple menu with opportunities to try different things. Meals very tasty and well priced, polite and attentive staff. Would highly recommend visiting.
Excellent location for interesting, tasty, good value food. Relaxed atmosphere and excellent value. Suitable for all ages and food preferences. Will definitely use this location again.
The food was good but the presentation could have need better. The restaurant lacks atmosphere.
Over priced and over done
good food and flavours but lacks atmosphere, especially as the staff were laying the tables and the buffet out for breakfast. No atmosphere
Food was disappointing considering it reads interesting on the menu. Just a mix of things that really didn't go together and didn't taste great. The chips in particular were bad. Probably the best thing was the sliders. I definitely would not go back or recommend it.
Booked for pre Fringe dinner with friends. Could quite happily sat all night and worked through the menu. In fact that is already in planning. All excellent.
Lovely restaurant, reasonably priced. Every dish that arrived was, ooh, wow, this is great. One of the best cocktails I have ever tasted. Can't wait to go back 😃
My family and I had looked at the menu online at the time of booking and my 14 year old daughter had decided what she wanted to eat. At the restaurant we were told that the menu online was the old menu and what she wanted was not on the menu.
