Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I wanted to go the last time I was in Edinburgh, but didn’t get the chance. This time I made sure I went, and I wasn’t disappointed. The staff are super friendly, the place is spotless and plenty of places to sit and it was pretty busy. The food arrived within a couple of minutes of ordering. Now that’s fast food. It was absolutely delicious. I would definitely go again.

Popped in for a spot of lunch after climing Arthur's seat. The food was very good and not to badly priced. I would recommend the whisky mustard sauce.

Came in for lunch with a friend and ordered 2 lattes and 2 portions of haggis neeps and tatties. We were served by Adam Thompson, who made us beautiful looking lattes. He really made our experience. Table service was really quick and food tasted amazing. Would 100% recommend. Will be back.

Located in a story telling/library but food area was very clean, and quite busy. Food presented very nicely and quite tasty. Set us up for the afternoon. It looks a small portion but its actually not - it does have a bit of height in the bowl!

Visited during the fringe and was so excited to find somewhere that was specifically for haggis as my partner and I love it (I'm vegan and a frequent visitor to Scotland so love trying the different veggie haggis on offer if I can get it). Sadly I was left disappointed. The vegan haggis was very dry with little flavour, it was overwhelmed by the sauce-though I needed an extra helping to compensate the dryness. Cost price a bit steep too at over £30 just for lunch - 2 drinks cost as much as one of the haggis portions. That said, my partner enjoyed his meat haggis and the neeps and tatties were good. Really friendly staff and a great atmosphere, just not somewhere I'd return unfortunately.

Thank you for your review. It sounds like you had alcoholic drinks, which are priced between £5 & £6. The vegan haggis has no oil in it, so, depending on their taste, some people do find it dry.

Last year Mum and I came to the Edinburgh Tattoo on a last minute whim. Nothing planned for when we got here but the Tattoo. While wandering we came across this lovely cafe. I had never had Haggis, nor did I know what Neeps were (46 yrs and not a clue 🤭) After a little lesson from mum, we decided I was going to try it. We got a haggis, tatties and neeps with whiskey cream sauce to share...just in case...I so wished we had got two! Fast forward a year and we came back to Edinburgh for the Tattoo and Fringe (much better planned) but I couldn't wait to go back to The Haggis Box cafe for my very own haggis, tatties and neeps and it didn't let me down...delish 😋

Would definitely recommend this as a nice spot for lunch to get away from the hustle and bussle of the Royal Mile. The portion size for the haggis wasn’t massive but the sauce it came in was divine. There was a choice of two and we option for the creamy whisky sauce.

Popped in following very good reviews & my love of haggis. I was not disappointed with the haggis flavour - very nice and yummy. However, i was slightly disappointed in the portion size for the price paid £11.50 (including sauce). However i will caveat it with the fact i was ravenous from a 12 mile run earlier in the day! My wife said her portion was ample. We were also given a complimentary shortbread - i have to say that was delicious! Best shortbread i’ve ever tasted.

Thank you for your review. I would tend to agree with you that the portion is not big enough for someone who has done so much exercise! If you'd let us know, we'd have given you a bigger portion. And, yes, the shortbread is delicious.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
