Great place to hangout for food and a good time atmosphere and staff are 👍🏻
A perfect lunch spot for colleagues with different lunchtime catering needs
Friendly attentive knowledgeable staff- great range of gin- amazing food - what's not to like ?
Great food, great atmosphere, good service and sensibly priced, Aberdeen you could learn a trick or two here
Love coming to this special wee place, lots of my friends from England come and visit me in West Lothian I always love coming into Edinburgh for the day and using my discount card !
Baked cod was excellent! Would definitely return.
Lovely food. Had to wait quite a while between starters and main, but we had good company and chat so it wasn't a problem. The element loyalty card helps with the bill and was an influencing factor in choosing the restaurant.
This has been our 3rd visit as a large group and AGAIN we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Keep up the fantastic work. Helen
Very attentive staff, lovely food
Will be back!
The wine that was brought was not the one we had ordered - the correct wine was brought once we had pointed this out and we were brought 2 rather than the 1 cheese plate. All sorted without any problem but made this diner feel uncomfortable
Fantastic gluten free menu choices, I loved that you'd really thought about us. The food was excellent and we had a lovely evening...we'll definitely be back.
Lovely friendly atmosphere. Excellent food.
Very pleasant environment and excellent service. Good food too.
Friendly welcome, the Sunday roast was good value for money, all in all highly recommended
My favourite place in Edinburgh. The service is fantastic and friendly. The food is always fabulous. The drinks menu is something to be savoured. Would recommend Element to anyone looking for somewhere special.
Service was good but nobody asked if we wanted desserts. We had to ask the staff if we could order desserts. Why is wine so so expensive???
Staff service was excellent. Good atmosphere. The food was fine - good value.
We came for a birthday dinner and have never recieved that standard of service anywhere. It was a really busy Friday night but you couldn't fault the staff, they were all so cheerful and friendly it made the experience so much better. The food was absolutely incredible and we cannot wait to come back for more! Despite the food being so good, the reason we're desperate to come back is because of the staff - they're such a credit to the business and it's rare to find such positivity in this industry. Thank you
Beautiful restaurant with a warm atmosphere, huge portions of delicious food, will definitely be back!
Venue rang and cancelled as does not accept children under five. The most bizarre thing ever. Welcome to the city of Edinburgh folks!
The seperate gluten free menu was fabulous- made things far easier. All staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was brilliant. Very tasty and great portion size.
Excellent service, attentive staff. Food was very tasty and to a high standard. We were a group of 7 and nothing was compromised.
First rate service food & staff as usual
