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 to be back. Lovely airy environment. Good choice of non-alcoholic drinks to meet the needs of current COVID requirements indoors.
Good choice of menu for a very reasonable price. All the staff were very friendly and attentive without being over bearing. Thoroughly enjoyed our first lunch out of lockdown. Would highly recommend Howies for a relaxed, enjoyable lunch.
Thank you so much for hosting our wedding breakfast. All our guests were delighted and commented on how wonderful the food was and how lovely the room looked. Thank you for all your help and for making our day special in these strange times. Irene and Hugo
Excellent food and service. Will be back soon!
Excellent service/VFM, will definitely be returning
Covid restrictions handled very well.
Fabulous meal as always
Everything was great from the moment we arrived. Staff were friendly and helpful and good was amazing
One of the best restaurants in town. Great food excellent value and superb staff.
Was so good to be back visiting this wonderful restaurant. As always, great service and a fab menu which caters for customers with food allergies. As someone who is coeliac, this is so important and is often not available in all restaurants, so thank you, Howies. Can't wait to return!
Wonderful as always
Awesome lunch. Casserole was amazing with horseradish mash. The non alcoholic drinks selection was good. I had No-secco bramble fizz and mum had drivers G&T. Really decent choice on gluten free menu, Amazing meal had by all 3 of us.
It's great to see you have opened up again and very encouraging that you have weathered the storm. Twice! I think the dividers between the tables are the classiest in town and I'm sure the investment in these will prove worthwhile even after restrictions are fully lifted. If we ever see that day... Thanks to you all for a great lunch.
Glad that you're still having your set menus. So many of your competitors no !longer have them.
I am a regular (pre lockdown) and have always enjoyed the overall experience. However, on this occasion I was disappointed with the meal served to my Daughter, namely the pea risotto. The dish presented was more like a pea soup and lacked flavour and seasoning. My daughter left most of the dish. I said nothing at the time as my daughter, who was my guest, would have been embarrassed. While it has not put me off returning to Howies I will a bit more discerning of food quality, clearly this needs to be consistent.
A bit busy for my liking but service very good and anti-covid measures pretty impressive
Excellent service and food. Friendly, helpful staff. The Haggis was amazing! Excellent value for money too.
Great service, lovely food, if only Daft Nicola would let us have a glass of wine.
Excellent. Great customer service. Great food & good choices for those of us with special dietary requirements.
We felt very safe with all the Covid regulations in place and the food was excellent and very good value with very pleasant and efficient staff. We will be back xx
Well partitioned tables.
Also nice going to Howies! 😀
First time being served a meal in along time. Enjoyed every bit of it. Thank you.
Excellent food served by excellent staff
