We had a fantastic Mothers Day lunch. Everything was perfect!
Great pub regular visitor
Tables are just a little bit to close together. But it is still our favourite eatery when in Edinburgh
Always enjoy coming to this lovely establishment, staff are very attentive and are keen to answer any questions myself or my group may have. Service is good and I enjoy having a member card and using it when I visit, I have recommended the member card to 3 of my friends of late and they are very impressed with the establishment - can't fault this place, love coming here and I believe there will be a new menu soon - can't wait, I will be back soon to sample it :)
Great place great food lovely service
Great food, great service, will return.
Very attentive staff, not over intrusive, comfy seating, great food....what not to like.
Second time I have visited Element for a relaxing drink and meal and once again could not fault anything. Very pleasant and accommodating staff, I'll be back.
Food was great. Staff were attentive and very reasonably priced
Fab place to go. Been several times already. Would highly recommend.
First visit but certainly not our last . Well worth the trip from Glasgow.
We had a great experience in your restaurant. The atmosphere was really lovely and cosy. The food was great and very reasonably priced. The service was also great, the staff are very friendly and helpful. We've been in the bar a few times and have airways enjoyed it. We'll definitely be back and have been recommending it to our friends. Element you are great. 😊
Good friendly restaurant which maintains it’s standards. Very good value for money on Rose Street.We always go back
As a family group we always use element for pre and post match dining, never fail to deliver on all fronts!
Great food, it was very busy but had a good atmosphere and would certainly recommend .
Have visited several times and never disappointed - however my friends used your toilets and said they were not clean and had unpleasant smell which is a shame 😭
In an eerie coincidence to another review recently for this restaurant, I'm from Essex and it was my 30th birthday on 25th January (Burns Night) and my wife booked Element for dinner as part of a short break to Edinburgh. It was an absolutely amazing meal. I had smoked salmon with blinis, creme fraiche and lemon slices for a starter, the duck cassoulet on top of haricot beans, spicy sausage slices and ham hock pieces (which was brilliant) and we shared a whisky trifle as our dessert, since this was part of the specials menu. My wife had duck nuggets for a starter and flat iron steak with chips; again, both delicious. My wife also ordered a mocha afterwards. After a small wait and without complaining at all, a waitress came over and asked if she'd received it yet. When she said no, they brought it straight over and knocked it off of the bill, which we never asked for but was extremely welcome nonetheless and excellent service. Our main waitress, Emma W, was very friendly as well. Overall, as you may have guessed by the review title, the perfect meal for a perfect 30th birthday! Thank you so much Element!
One of the nicest places we visiting in Edinburg, for lovely food and atmosphere! And the fact that gluten free options were available was an extra bonus!
I would have given 5 stars but our bottle of prosecco was warm and the ice bucket wasn't much use. Warm prosecco was not very nice. Other than that loved the food. Amazing. Love it
Visited for a business lunch for 8 people. Excellent service. Fantastic food. So much so iv been ask to reserve for the next lunch by the staff. Well done
The staff were excellent. Friendly helpful and effective
Really surprised it was so busy in January but we had a great meal. Proves it pays to book a table.
Made our wedding anniversary a special evening. Loved the music and the whole ambience. Food was pleasing to the eye and the palate. And it was very well priced. Thank you very much.
We really enjoyed our Hogmanay evening at Element. The tasting menu was wonderful together with the whiskys! Thank you for being so understanding with our changes to the menu.
Wonderful atmosphere, food, service!
