My husband and I visited tonight for an anniversary meal. unfortunately the 'pre-washed' salad had not been checked before being plated and I experienced a mouth full of what only could be described as dirt/grit. I quietly left the table to deal with this in...More

We decided to give McKirdy's a try based on the strength of the reviews on here and we were pleased that we did. The restaurant is perhaps more homespun than some, but this reflects the fact that it is a family business and, better still,...More

One or the best steakhouses in the Capital. The staff are great, the food even better and it's so relaxed. The medallions of fillet with haggis are simply fantastic and the house red sets it off without killing a budget. Can't recommend highly enough

Went to Mckirdy's steakhouse last Saturday with friends and although it was busy and the service was a bit slow the food was excellent.

My family an I walked a long way to reach this place west of the castle, as my brother had read the best haggis in Edinburgh could be found there. While I am not used to eating red meat, my family was enthusiastic about it....More

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
