Description: Monteiths prides itself on using great quality ingredients that are locally sourced where possible. Provenance is hugely important and we work closely with our suppliers to ensure that our food comes from farm, to plate as quickly as possible. Although we frequently change our menu to reflect the changing seasons we also have a range of specials including dry aged fillet steaks and chateaubriand available. There is also a selection of seasonal dishes from the sea including fresh Scottish lobster and oysters. We also serve a wide range of hand crafted cocktails, beers & wines from around the world. Whether you're looking for lunch, dinner or drinks Monteiths on the Royal Mile is a must.

Would never had found this if I hadn't read about it on TripAdvisor. Visited on a very busy Saturday night and so pleased we had booked. Once you find your way in down the short twig lined alley and down the stairs, you are transported to a very busy and vibrant restaurant. It is like an underground grotto. Lovely setting with great lighting and a quirky lay out. Waiting staff were brilliant and some of the happiest that we have come across. We sat at the bar and had a drink while we waited for our table. Very professional bar staff and the drinks were served in ice cold glasses. Good choice on the menu and we were advised straight away of 2 options that were no longer available. We chose a haggis starter to share. Great choice and very tasty. Husband went for the ribeye steak and I opted for the lamb. The waitress advised us on portion sizes and that 1 side should be sufficient with my lamb. Food was beautifully presented and good as per our requests. Wine choice was good and plenty choice across all price ranges. This is a place that I can't wait to go back to for the food, service and setting.

We have been here twice now and both times have been great. Firstly we had a drink at the bar while waiting for our table, the cocktails were great. Followed by a very nice meal with friendly service. We will certainly be back.
