This was my 3rd or 4th visit to this incredible place but the first time at a 'formal' event. I use the term formal loosely because despite this place looking like it should be in Kensington its the most relaxed and welcoming lounge you'll visit. The event had two very high end Cuban cigars and four fantastic Stella Dhu whiskies all hosted by its owner no less. Add in some of the most amazing snacks imaginable and you have a fantastic event for a crazy price of £60. We sat outside on a very cold November night with coats off due to the excellent outdoor heating and shelter. Special thanks to Harry who compared the night with absolute aplomb.

Had a really lovely afternoon at the Puffin Rooms Edinburgh. I’ve been wanting to go for a while and had the opportunity to go today for a cigar, coffee and a couple of Cognacs while reading a paper. The staff were all very professional, friendly and attentive from the outset. The Humidor is absolutely top class with the host offering advice and guidance that would support a novice and assist a seasoned cigar fan looking for a new recommendation. The setting is lovely, with a well heated and covered external smoking area that takes the very well appointed indoors into an outdoor cigar area, with comfortable sofas. The manager introduced himself and made me feel very welcome, letting me know about the tasting events that they are hosting. This is a must go location for Scottish cigar fans who don’t want to rough it for the 6 (11?) months of the year when it’s virtually impossible to enjoy a cigar outdoors. Great service, Cigars, Drinks selection and setting. Will be back…I would heartily recommend that you give it a try.

Came for the Por Larranaga 47 cigar event and was very impressed with the whole venue and experience. Low attendance just made it more of an indulgence in a great environment. The canapés were excellent to the extent that after the event, we stayed on for a bottle of wine and a charcuterie selection. The PL 47 was a great smooth hour and a half.

We attended on Saturday evening. My friend is a seasoned cigar smoker and very knowledgeable, I’m more of a novice but this place catered for both of us perfectly. The bar area has a nice chilled atmosphere and sleek look. The smoking area is cosy and classy and very comfortable to sit and relax in for hours. They have a solid range of whisky and gins and the service was impeccable. We ordered a couple of beers, but staff advised they weren’t perfectly chilled and provide another recommendation. The service was very attentive but not over bearing at all. Harry the cigar guru, was fantastic and provided us with a really personable service and gave us some great recommendations on what to smoke. The humidor is stunning and is well stocked with Cuban cigars. Sadly no new world (licensing reasons) but Harry has a phenomenal knowledge of cigars to suit every flavour profile and gave solid and informed advice. A fantastic place that really stands out in the Edinburgh bar scene, a hidden gem and we’ll definitely be back. If you enjoy a cigar and relaxed drink you can’t do better than this place. Price wise it’s reasonable and in line with the service and quality you receive. Only advice to improve would be better booking system online as only seem to be able to do that for Liverpool and not Edinburgh. Love this place!

Business took me to Edinburgh in late April. For my dinner, I sought out the Puffin Rooms and I thought I might have a cigar too. The 15min walk from my hotel was absolutely worth it. The menu is very interested with some really good food, and they easily catered for my gluten free requirement. It's not so much divided in to starters and mains, it's almost tapas in that the individual dishes aren't huge, so you can have a selection if you want. And the dishes I had were excellent, particularly the Wagyu beef. After a cocktail and a glass or wine or two, I ventured out to the terrace and indulged in a cuban cigar; the opportunity to sit and smoke a cigar for an hour being heated by the infra-red lamps just finished the evening off nicely. All told, a great evening out, very welcoming with good food and drink. Definitely recommend whether you're a cigar smoker or not!

Discovered puffin rooms through a friend and it is one of the best experiences I have had in recent months. 1st the bar itself is stunning, it looks amazing blending old and new and once your go inside you get to see a brilliant humidor with also a brilliant whisky store as well. Once you sit down you then get to experience the amazing service and selection on offer. We were looked after by Harry and his knowledge over whisky and cigars is brilliant. We were looked after all night and never felt like too much trouble. For all those cigar smokers the set up outside is comfortable, spacious and delivers exactly what you would wish for. Overall thank you Harry and the The Puffin Rooms, I am new fan and will be back

Edinburgh now proudly hosts a haven for cigar aficionados – a much-awaited addition to the city's scene. As a longtime admirer of the Liverpool Puffin' Rooms, I am thrilled to see this esteemed brand make its mark in Edinburgh. The culinary experience here is exceptional, complemented by an impressive array of drinks. But the real gem for me is the stunning humidor. It's not just a visual delight; it's a carefully curated collection of my personal favorites, ranging from affordably priced Cuban cigars to the more luxurious, high-end selections. It's important to note that this humidor is an exclusive LCDH (La Casa del Habano) spot, offering only Cuban cigars. This suits my preferences perfectly. So, whenever you're in Edinburgh, there's a high chance you'll spot me enjoying a Montecristo No. 2, my cigar of choice.

This is a wee bit of heaven in the already blooming Quarter Mile in Edinburgh. I was there for a wine tasting & cigar pairing evening but have been there before with my wife on Christmas Eve after my son recommended it to me. If you like a lovely glass of vino, delicious food, a smooth cigar or all three, you will not be disappointed. The ambience in the outdoor puffin’ areas was on point; comfortable, warm, great music & atmospheric. The staff are courteous, knowledgeable and engaging, & they went above and beyond for us. This is a perfect place to hang out, meet new people, go with your friends &/or partner, colleagues and clients alike even if you don’t smoke. Can’t wait to go back. Superb.

Visited the Puffin Rooms as my husband and brother in law are big cigar fans. Wasn’t sure what to expect as my sister and I are not. Overall it was a fantastic experience, the place was lovely and we had our own little corner to have dinner. The food was absolutely fantastic and the staff were all so nice and welcoming, they couldn’t do enough for us. We then sat out on the cigar terrace which was heated and had a very relaxing ambiance. The cocktails were also very very good! The dessert chocolate mousse that looked like a cigar was amazing!

Had some time spare on my way north, been wanting to go here for a few weeks and was not disappointed. Lovely furnishings, great selection of drinks and of course cigars. Staff absolutely wonderful, friendly and extremely professional. Harry looked after my cigar needs with magnificent attention to detail, courteous, polite and helpful an asset to The Puffin Rooms. Highly recommended when in and around Edinburgh.

Beautiful meal, lovely wine and very attentive staff, a 10 out of 10 experience. The live music made the experience extra special. Only slight issue is if you want to have a cigar afterwards in the terrace it cannot be one of your own cigars, it has to be a Cuban cigar purchase from the bar shop. I think that policy needs a rethink tbh.

Love a good cigar on a special occasion. Found online, gave them a ring to make sure we had a table for 2 outside and walha. Wife choice of quality Cuban cigars and lovely cocktails. Service was excellent. Blankets, heaters, and comfy seats. Will recommend and when back in Edinburgh return.
