All my friends rave about this place so we wanted to see what it was like. Lovely place inside and warm and friendly. The cocktails aren't cheap, approx £8 each. I ordered a mojito and to be honest there was more ice in the glass than drink, it was good but don't think it was value for money, I've had... More

Visited here last week for the first time for dinner, food was great especially the pork and lamb main courses and mac cheese side dish, puddings great too. Staff especially Sidney were very attentive and polite. Will definitely be back again when we revisit Edinburgh, booking advisable.

I went for a works evening out. Set menu, three courses, £30 The starter of prawns was just about OK, size-wise, if you weren't too hungry. It was a group of cold prawns on a warm watery hummock of noodled veg that was no great culinary challenge to the chef (or microwave technician) The main of two 1oz pieces of... More

I dined alone for lunch, as I was on a day trip. I had been to Tigerlily before but just for drinks, and love the contemporary interior design. I had the best Caesar salad that I have ever eaten. A twist on the classic, it also had crispy bacon and a soft poached egg which poured over the salad, gorgeous!... More

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
