In recently talking to my friend about what to do in Edinburgh this was the very first place I mentioned. I actually visited this back in summer '16 with my partner, so forgive me if my memory on what exactly we ate is a little hazy... However I do remember an incredibly intimate, cosy and inviting downstairs area that we... More

It was friend’s recommendation and it was spot on! Amazing local food – something for every taste. Great choice of wine and champagne and, of course whisky. Service was timely, discreet, overall very professional. In terms of space – the place is very small, not suitable for large parties, but I would definitely recommend it for romantic meal for two....

I took my fiancé here on the day we got engaged. We were presented with a glass of champagne on arrival and then had the most amazing meal to top off a brilliant day. The food was outstanding, the restaurant had a lovely atmosphere and the staff were very attentive! We would go back to Edinburgh just to visit this... More

This is a fine and elegant restaurant located on the Royal Mile. I came here for lunch and opted for the lunch menu and had soup to start and then haddock and fries. I could not fault the food at all. It was delicious and well presented. Never thought I would hear myself saying this, but I even loved the... More

Well, if you go to Edinburgh for Hogmanay, where do you start looking for a suitable place to celebrate ? This unpretentious looking restaurant on the Royal Mile and but a couple of minutes from the famous Castle has all you will need. We opted for a late start at 9.00 pm so that we could head towards midnight at... More

My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of dining at angels with bagpipes in a beautiful side room with a stunning glass wall and cosy decor. The service from the beginning was outstanding with complementary drinks both at the beginning and end. The food was incredibly good. Exciting and innovative without any hint of pretentiousness. We enjoyed 3 starters, 2... More

Having opened on the Royal Mile in 2010, Angels with Bagpipes has quickly established itself as one of the best Scottish restaurants in Edinburgh. Mixing an atmospheric Old Town setting with chic, contemporary looks, Angels with Bagpipes was designed to fit perfectly into its Royal Mile setting.

Pride in fresh, seasonal, Scottish ingredients is what defines Angels with Bagpipes and makes us one of the top Scottish restaurants in Edinburgh. Open through the day and evening , we are the perfect spot for a quick lunch or a relaxing dinner.

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
