About Howies Waterloo Place
Our flagship venue, Howies Waterloo is set in a beautiful Georgian building at the foot of Calton Hill. Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, Waterloo is perfect for a quick bite, leisurely lunch, relaxed dinner and parties!
Staff were very attentive and cheery.
Brilliant as always. Been coming for years for lunch and have also reserved the private room for 3 separate special occasions. Never once have had any complaint
We enjoyed a lovely evening for a family & friends 50th birthday celebration. Thanks to Veronica for looking after us on the night and for Rachel and Emily's attentiveness during the planning process!
Went here for our first wedding anniversary last weekend. Food was great (we ate a lot!) and i really enjoyed the cocktails the bar staff put together for us. Had a very enjoyable evening and the staff were great. :)
Lovely evening. Highly recommended!
We hosted a company party at Howie's last week and it was absolutely perfect. We were around 30 so we got a private room which was perfect. Everything leading up to the reservation went smoothly, they answered my emails quickly and were always willing to make changes when I had to add more people to the reservation. The food itself was great and the service excellent. Can highly recommend.
Lovely lunch, very tasty and well presented. We will definately be back.
Overall it was an enjoyable experience and proved to be a great celebration for my wife’s birthday with our family and friends.
Great time out for the family
Excellent as always
Staff were very helpful with pre ordering and patient on the night, as we were a big group. Food was fantastic, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it.
Excellent as usual - thank you!
Excellent lunch for a pre birthday celebration👍😃
The service was good if some what a little too fast between courses. Cutlery down next course appeared. I know on the website it says table required after 2 hours but I think the speed at which the food was served at we felt a little rushed and the restaurant wasn’t busy. This would be my only negative comment. The food was delicious and pleasant staff. We would return & recommend this restaurant
Seriously great service with lovely food at a good price. What more could you want.
Interesting menu didn't disappoint. Served with a smile too. Booking on line very easy and time saving.
Thank you again for hosting us. The staff always provide the right level of attention and ensure that everyone is catered for. The menu was fantastic as always and the food was delicious.
Always such an enjoyable experience.
We love Howie’s! My husband and I are there at least once a month - we take visitors from the States, friends who live locally, go for lunch after the gym, early dinners and celebrations. The food is excellent, the staff are delightful and the atmosphere is fabulous. There’s great choice for everyone ... would be great to include a daily vegetarian special on the blackboard too, but that’s just a suggestion. You are our favourite restaurant in Edinburgh and last night was as terrific as always 😊Thank you!
I had some friends from France who also thought it was excellent food and service.
I have eaten here many times and never been disappointed. This time we had the roasted tomato and basil soup o start - just delicious - I would love the the recipe!! There is always a buzz around the dining room and the service is impeccable. Dougal served us and was attentive without being intrusive. We will be back!!
Great food and well priced menu. Very enjoyable.
As always, a great experience
Service was excellent, everyone very friendly and food very good value Atmosphere got 4* as it was quite noisy but I think that’s just to do with the shape of the room
Everything was wonderful and so good to have a place that serves the best of Scottish produce. Service was exemplary, thanks to all of the team.
