Description: 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.

I just took my wife for a birthday lunch. She hadn't been before and has come out over the moon. If you want 'desperate Dan' cow pie size portions, go elsewhere. This is modern cheffy food - actually using fairly traditional ingredients, but so well presented. Uber polite and helpful staff. We had, between us, scallops, trout, risotto, chocolate grenache, fig tart. All beautifully prepared. It's so easy to overdo scallops and fish and vegetables, and everything we had was spot on. They'd put great thought into combinations of accessories which complemented other tastes. Popcorn on grenache was a revelation!
£75 for two lunches [inc wine and coffee] is not cheap, but for a special occasions it was well worth it.

My daughter and I had lunch here yesterday, on a dark dreary day in Edinburgh. From the moment we walked in the front door, our mood changed! We were seated in the room in the back with a huge window giving us a view of some great architecture. Our lunches were delicious, the wine great, and the service wonderful. A wonderful place for a respite on a rainy day. It would be great on a sunny day, too!

Fab little bar and restaurant. Wish we had have known about here on our first night, would have definitely eaten here as the food looked fantastic. Recommended by the lady on the bus tour.

We happened upon this restaurant while on the Royal Mile. It is difficult to find places to eat in which children are welcome, especially after 7 p.m. We mistakenly read the lunch menu and had a taste for fish and chips. Unfortunately it was not on the dinner menu, but we asked, and the chef fixed it for us anyway. It was incredible!

We came across this place by chance one day visiting Edinburgh. Managed to get a table no bother.
Food, drinks, staff & atmosphere were all brilliant and we will definitely be back sometime!
