About Howies Waterloo Place

Housed in a gorgeous Georgian building, Howies Waterloo Place is located at the foot of Calton Hill in the East End of Edinburgh. This place is stunning, a real head turner, where natural light floods the building showcasing original period features and contemporary Scottish style.

Open for lunch, dinner, special events and weddings, Waterloo’s main dining hall seats up to 100 people, but if you’d prefer to keep things strictly private then The Calton Room is great for special events and seats up to 26 people.

Beautiful building.The service was excellent but I was a bit disappointed in the choice of main course, I picked the salmon which was a bit dry and I thought the potatoes had been lying for a while - the kale was just a few strips - the sauce was delicious but would have been better to have more - the house wine was very good. I had an Irish coffee - the cream didn't seem to be whisked enough as it dissolved into the liquid - I've had better Irish coffees. When I made the reservation for 7.30pm I was told we'd have to be finished by 9.30pm, I assumed that this was for a further sitting but realised the following day when I looked on your website that the restaurant closes at 10pm, it would have been good to know this in advance as we might have come a bit earlier as the ambience changed as everyone left the restaurant early

My guests really enjoyed themselves and remarked about how nice a venue it was for our lunch. I will certainly be back, either with more friends or the same guests.

First time visiting Howie’s and would highly recommend. Situated minutes from Waverley Station and Playhouse but off busy street. Really friendly professional staff, lovely surroundings and good variety on menu. Excellent value for money and on a packed Sat evening staff maintained their cool never looking under pressure. A return for sure next time in Edinburgh.

Food is amazing here and the lunchtime deal of 3 courses for £15.75 is one of the best value for money deals in the city, given the food served. The staff were very friendly and accommodating.

Waiters friendly and organised, the food was good value and tasty. The only criticism from those who had it was that the trout starter was a bit too oily. Everyone of our group of 16 enjoyed themselves and would go back

Fantastically looked after by Kerry and her team for private dining. Big fans of the Ghillie pie. No doubt we will be back.

There was a mistake with our main but staff sorted it quickly and apologised. Service a little too rushed between courses when we did have our table for 2 hours.
