We were recommended to visit this restaurant, so we did on the 6th March on a cold wet evening. Everyone has different ideas of what is good, however, Dubh Prais exceeded expectations. It has a small downstairs dining area and seats around 28/30 and our...More

We almost didn't eat there as we couldn't find it - the reason being there is scaffolding round the door and the restaurant is in the basement. Very pleased we finally found it though. Food was excellent - both taste and presentation, and the staff...More

If it were not for the great directions provided by the man at John Knox house we never would have found this almost hidden Jewel. The food was marvelous and the service was fantastic.

Booked well in advance as we were wanting to eat on St Andrews day. The restaurant is very small probably about 30 covers (although they are about to extend the premises) The food was traditional Scottish and delicious. Freshly prepared, waiters were courteous and friendly....More

Lovely place for dinner. The food and service absolutely top notch. Can’t recommend highly enough. Only problem was a table of noisy folk. At least that’s what the folk at the table next to us probably thought. Steak is immense. Ribeye perfection.

Heard great things about this place for a while and finally got a chance to eat here on our most recent trip to Edinburgh. Great little space with attentive staff ...and the food? Out of this world.

Went to Dubh Prais for a special occasion - a dinner with my family for my graduation. The power was down due to problems with the provider. The staff handled the emergency extremely well and turned the venue in a nice and cozy candle-light restaurant....More

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
