Nipped in for a late lunch. It was so yummy. Excellent choices on menu. We had a mixture of venison and smoked haddock between us. Sumptuous ice-cream puddings (Rocky Road sundae/slider) and catering fabulously for the gluten-free. Space felt safe. Lovely serving staff.

I visit this restaurant every time I am in town. Beyond friendly, expertly run, gourmet food at family-restaurant prices, comfortable tables, high quality cutlery and plates. Every restaurant should strive to be this good.

Excellent restaurant in Bruntsfield, Edinburgh. Had Venison stroganoff and Afogato - both excellent. Smoked haddock and Ice cream had by other in our group - also ex cell ent. If you’re up for it, they do an Espresso Martini for brunch...something for next time.

We have been huge fans of 3 Birds pre Covid and recently discovered they were open for takeaway food. Last night we had a great experience with three excellent dishes of sea bass, braised beef blade and the big cow steak for 2. The first...More

We thoroughly enjoyed the delicious takeaway meal we ordered for my birthday. We hadn't had dukkah before and the 3B version is amazing! The portion sizes were very generous so we couldn't manage the Rocky Road last night so still have that to look forward...More
