Have been to Pickles a few times now and have to say it's one of the best places I've found in Edinburgh to hang out with friends over a glass of wine and quality food.

The staff really can't do enough for you, the atmosphere is cool, relaxed and fabulous - one of those places where you pop in for half and hour and stay for the whole evening!

Great prices, great wines and overall a great experience.

Expensive, mediocre food served with a 40 minute delay (for a cold platter!). Wine list chosen by a person without taste and an inadequate manager unable to rescue a very poor performance without embarrassing us in front of the other diners. There are much better places to dine within easy walking distance, if you are looking to eat in this charming area of Edinburgh keep walking past this disappointing establishment.

I went for drinks - the wine was very reasonably priced for Broughton Street- around £3 for a glass of wine. I did not order food at the time but could see the platters that others were sharing- you can choose cheeses/meats/olives/breads etc - they looked generous and tasty.

There was a good atmosphere in the small bar - there are sofas/comfy chairs and tables. The service was excellent -friendly and helpful. There was nice gently lighting and good music. My only suggestion is that the music could be a bit livelier for a Friday/Saturday night.

I will definitely be going back soon.

This is a lovely place with a great idea--why not concentrate on the condiments? The cheese and meat boards were great and the service was really friendly and excellent. A lovely place for a sociable evening.
