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.

Howies is our go-to restaurant of choice. A friend has a B and B and always recommends you to guests visiting Edinburgh, because we took her there to see how great the restaurant is.

Food as always excellent. Our table was poorly situated - my partners chair was sticking out into a main walkway and he was consistently getting pushed by other diners walking past. Having said that it won't stop us coming back..

The early dining special with two courses is a great deal! With the money I saved I treated myself to whisky flight #3 which was very good.
