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.

The young man who served our table provided excellent customer service. Two of my party of 4 had not been to Howies before and are certainly looking forward to a repeat visit .

My cullem skink was returned as it was cold and the replacement was over hot and not as good as usual.

Wonderful visit! It was my mum’s birthday and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly! The food was excellent and suited all our various dietary requirements! We were highly impressed. A great Sunday lunch and excellent value! Thank you so much for making it such a special occasion for us!

I would give six stars for service if I could! Food arrived impressively quickly and the waiting staff were amazingly efficient and pleasant despite an exuberant crowd of 16 people speaking six different languages. Food was delicious and commented on favourably by all. What a great impression to create! Thanks.

Food is always good. Service is usually excellent.. Howies menu is a very clever format, casserole and fish specials are normally a lovely choice.

Your haggis needs a nice whisky sauce :) Tapenade is yummy. Fish of the day always seems to be hake (coincidence)?
