About Cannonball Restaurant & Bar
Cannonball House is one of the city’s oldest and most important buildings with stunning views to Edinburgh Castle. Our cosy bar lists over 120 Scotch whiskies and is open for lunch, cocktails and pre dinner drinks. From the bar we will escort you up the atmospheric old school staircase to our award winning Scottish Restaurant, serving delicious, seasonal quality dishes in a truly unique location.
Fresh East Coast lobster, oysters, Bellhaven Smoked salmon, seasonal Scottish game and the best Scotch Beef from Inverurie are always on the menu. And, of course our haggis cannonballs are not to be missed!
Serving old fashioned fish and chips all day.
The food let’s this place down, along with some small overlooked details within the restaurant which is a shame considering it’s amazing location.
Excellent location, service, and food! Would definitely return.
Amazing view. Staff are so friendly and couldn’t fault the food at all. I’ll definitely be back.
Booked for my birthday, staff & food were excellent & accommodating!
We were celebrating our engagement and we couldn't have had a better experience. Our table was wonderfully positioned giving us an unrivalled view of the castle lit up in all its glory. We were met by charming staff, given a glass of prosecco on the house and Sebastian, our waiter was most attentive, ensuring that all our needs were met. Our food was delicious, the wine very good and we were made to feel special. It was a memorable evening and we would certainly recommend Cannonball.
Excellent food and location
Overall very good, however I do have the following comments; we had a drink at the bar prior to going to our table, 2 of which were cocktails, all the drinks took a while to be served, eventually 3 were served and waited longer again for the 4th. we didn't order side dishes initially, and then asked if it was too late to order 2 sides of veg and was told it would not be a problem. 2 bowls of broccoli eventually arrived when we had nearly finished our meal. Staff were very apologetic and we were not charged, but thought this was pretty poor.
The whisky room and the restaurant are stunning. Beautiful surroundings and a fantastic ambiance. All the staff were very attentive and knowledgable of the menu being offered. I will definitely be back. Excellent all round.
Amazing food, the best view and lovely staff. Stunning restaurant
We visited for the Hogmanay tasting menu - it was delicious throughout. Along with the friendly and attentive staff and the great atmosphere it was a New Year to remember. We have attended three different events here now and thus I would not hesitate to recommend.
Servizio e cortesia al top, cibo squisito.
Lovely lobster, very good perpared! Friendly staff, we felt welcome!
Lovely atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff and good food.
We had a superb evening on NYE. Food and service were excellent. My vegetarian requirements were wonderfully accommodated. Thanks to all the team. Clare & Bruce
Fantastic service by great staff.
The food and service were exceptional, wonderful place to celebrate the New Year. My only suggestion would be to perhaps either take a credit card as securement or arrange the bills at 2330 so there is not the mad panic just before midnight, other than that thank you for a wonderful night.
The food was just so-so. Not an extensive menu. We were in a party of five and four of us thought the food was not very flavorful or exciting.
We frequent Cannonball for meals and drinks often. My favourite restaurant in Edinburgh and the Royal mile. Outstanding food, very friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere
Really lovely location. More intimate than George St restaurant. Food was really good. Staff friendly & very helpful; made us feel special. Will definitely be making a return visit.
Fabulous food and drink and excellent service. The staff are very welcoming, efficient and friendly. Highly recommended.
Your location is spot on and is a beautiful place. I came with a family group on Hogmanay just gone for the fish and fizz evening...top stuff . However none too impressed this time unfortunately as the food was mediocre and I was expecting something better. Friends up from London and your location and perfect staff ticked the box. Food not so.
First class food but sadly slightly shambolic organisation and inflexibility over mixing and matching between menus marred our experience. There wasn’t a “customer first” attitude.
Great food, great service, great location, what more can I say
Food and service was excellent but restaurant was very quiet. We did go on a cold, wet Wednesday night though. Will definitely return
