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.

Great place and love coming back. Accommodated short notice, asked for table back at specific time, but service was great and we were in and out in plenty time. Great with the kids too

Service was good throughout meal but we seemed to be forgotten about after desserts came and took a while to get bill when we were in a hurry to return to work.

I think my dinner at Howies in Waterloo place was the best meal in Edinburgh. Lovely atmosphere, great service and great food. My first Haggis and I loved it. My son 12 enjoyed the experience as much as me.

The portion of the half lobster amounted to only approximately three forkfuls which was disappointing. No claws! The haggis starter was delicious as was my partners rib eye steak main course. Service was excellent as well, just a shame about the lobster.

we have been before and enjoyed it and this was no exception. A friendly welcome and excellent service - i think the staff picked up we were on a tight timescale ( Tattoo tickets ) and responded accordingly. Thank you to all at the restaurant for a most enjoyable experience

Overall excellent. I brought a visitor from overseas as I wanted to show them a authentic Scottish restaurant. It ticket that box in no uncertain terms. The restaurant was very busy, as busy as McDonald's but there the similarities ended. The quality of food was outstanding. I wanted my guest to have a taste of Scotland and our visit did exactly that. We chose the 3 course lunch option and it represented great value for money. I would happily recommend it to visitors who might read this review. But book. You won't be disappointed.

Disappointed in the quality of the food. Casserole of day tasteless and roast potatoes advertised were just boiled. Chicken dish chargrilled tasted dry and burnt. Banoffee pie banana was over ripe spoiling the taste. Girl who served was attentive if anything food came too quickly. All in all disappointed. Have been to other howies over the years and always enjoyed meal. Maybe it was too busy with the festival
