Ate there twice during our stay in Edinburgh. The food is really good and spicy, great beers, and nice atmosphere. Loved sitting outside on a warm day, only bad thing is that they do not check outside once in a while when people leave and...More

Had such a funky experience with no cutlery involved, enjoyed the atmosphere and different grafitti throughout the premises. Cocktails were to a high standard and the vibe throughout the experience was top notch.

An amazing late lunch with fantastic gluten free offerings. The portions were absolutely huge but everything was really tasty. Would not hesitate to go back if I want an epic burger and fries! We sat outside but the inside decor was really cool.

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look

The challenge sees contestants given 15 minutes to eat one chilli cheese burger, one chilli dog, one portion of chilli cheese fries and one Oreo milkshake. We invite you to party until the cows come home at 1am seven days a week, where you can expect an eclectic mix of music with DJs on Tuesday, Friday & Saturday nights.
