“Meh”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

Lots of good reviews on here so perhaps we went on a bad day. The place looked great and the food was just ok, nothing really special. Only seemed to be 2 staff on which seems odd for lunch and the food took a long time to arrive. Too much clutter on the tables, 2 water glasses, salt, drinks list, candle and flowers, took up most of the space on the table. All other tables offered water except ours, why waste real estate on the table if you're not going to offer water? Manager very loud when talking to other tables and recommending food, which he didn't do for us. Toilets like a sauna.

“Great steaks!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

One of the best ribeyes I've ever had,...maybe the very best.
The service was good and everything else was good but the steak was exceptional.

“Lovely lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

Always return to the whiski rooms as food, drink and service is great.
Good deals during the day for eating and brilliant atmosphere at night.
Ideal location at top of the mound too for sightseeing

“Wonderful restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

my daughter chose to visit this restaurant as they served Haggis. the staff were lovely and were able to provide haggis as a smaller side dish for us as we had never tried it before. The atmosphere of the restaurant was very friendly and made us feel like we deserved to be there where as other restaurants may not make you feel like you fit in with their other customers. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the variety of Whisky they served and tried one of the flights they have on their whiskey menu. I would recommend this restaurant to everybody who visits Edinburgh.
