Edinburgh Scottish Evening was a fun and enjoyable event with a delightful menu and interactive performers. A good place to laugh and dine in a Scottish atmosphere.

It was great entertainment and good food menu. The music the actors played made it feel really Scottish and it was an overall good experience.

Tonight, we went on an optional Scottish evening with Highland dancers, bagpipers, and the Ceremony of the Haggis. Haggis is a pork sausage mixed into cereal and spices cooked in the empty cleared sheep’s stomach. The dinner was great (including the haggis) and the entertainment...More

I agree Haggis is somewhat exotic but I suspect no worse than a lot of sausages in terms of what its ingredients are and it is delicious!!

Thank you very much for your review. I am so glad you enjoyed the show. See you next time you are in Scotland!!

The show is a little too polished and reminded me more of a cruise boat show than an authentic experience. The food and wine were good and the greeter and piper were friendly.

When visiting Edinburgh be sure to take in the Scottish evening. It's a dinner show that includes a meal it's OK but the entertainment is really quite good. You'll hear bagpipes wonderful singing and Scottish dances to thrill you. It's a great variety show plus...More

This was part of our tour and a great experience. Banquet style dinner lots of fun. Food was average But song and dance was excellent. The only better entertainment in Edinburgh would be the Military Tattoo. Wonderful Cultural experience!
