Had booked for 9:00, but they phoned at 7:30 to say that a few items had already sold out and did we want to reserve anything or make another booking. As it turned out only about four or five things were unavailable when we ordered,...More

Great food with a local flavor. Good selection of ales and whiskies. Fresh seafood specials daily. Local music is a nice addition. Lots of locals in the restaurant/bar.

We had heard rumours about Reverie having good food. So when we happened to walk by early in the afternoon late in july we dropped in for a beer, relaxing, and something to eat. It was indeed relaxing, and the food tasted good.

This restaurant was found by chance while walking to another eatery The food service and presentation were all excellent. It had a comprehensive and interesting menu. It was so good we went back for a second evening.

Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking

Reverie is a pub with a lovely relaxed atmosphere - red wallpaper, floorboards, gold mirrors and plants. We offer a whole host of Scottish meals including haggis, salmon, beef and ‘build-your-own’ burgers, all cooked in-house with fresh ingredients. There are over 50 malt whiskies to sample, plus ales, beers and wines. We hold a variety of live music evenings throughout the week, including folk on a Tuesday.
