One of the best meals I've had in Edinburgh! And amazing value for money. Service was excellent. Can't wait to visit again
We had a lovely evening. Great food, friendly staff, good recommendations for wine pairing! Couldn't fault anything!
Excellent food and service. The tasting menu just got better and better as the courses went on. Attentive and very friendly staff. Would highly recommend.
Great food and service in the difficult days of Covid.
Had an outstanding meal, fantastic value for money. Staff were lovely, attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Only small complaint was that there could have been better adherence to COVID advice - no hand sanitizer available (although I had my own) and at times staff wearing masks over mouth only and not nose.
We booked for a Saturday night. The staff were friendly & welcoming and the food was well presented and sooooooo tasty. We were very happy with the Wellington and amazing puddings. Would happily go back and eat it all again. Great value for money too!
Delicious food. Staff were very attentive
Another delicious meal in pleasant surroundings. Very good friendly service and e excellent value for money. Thank you.
Absolutely love Taisteal, the service is wonderful, the food is excellent and the drinks are beautifully paired. We love coming down for dinner!
Lovely service and food was delicious.
This is a gem of a restaurant in Edinburgh - one of our top food places to go to. The service was very homely and friendly, and the food is on point - a total food sensation
Lovely food , very friendly staff and great atmosphere
The greatest restaurant in Edinburgh and to me the whole country. Enough said. Thank you.
Brilliant service, creative and exquisite food
Best service we’ve experienced in a long while.
Amazing! So delicious and such a treat. I really hope that I get a chance to the return again!
Wonderful Stockbridge eatery. Not sure why we’ve not been before, could not have been better. The separate vegan menu was outstanding!
The food and staff were amazing! It was one of the highlights of our trip to Edinburgh as me and my partner are a big couple of foodies.
We had the best evening for my birthday. We tried the 7 course taster menu and it was unreal! Flavours and combinations your brain says shouldn't work, but my goodness they work. I chose the drinks pairing option and my husband had the 'Old Fashioned' cocktail ( x 3 ahahah) The atmosphere was so relaxed and happy, not pretentious in any way whatsoever. We were not disappointed and cannot wait to return. Thanks to the Taisteal team for making our evening 😊
I loved my meal at Taisteal. I have to do gluten-free and dairy-free and it was no problem at all. I was able to do the three courses and really enjoyed it. There service was top notch from the reservation process to when I left having eaten just a wee more than I should have! :)
Absolutely fantastic. A gem of a restaurant in Stockbridge. The food is incredible value, particularly the venison wellington and peanut butter baked Alaska! The service was friendly and the restaurant was cosy with lovely atmosphere. Worth every penny.
The food and service was incredible. We absolutely loved it xx
Taisteal was the highlight of our trip to Edinburgh! The food was absolutely delicious and the service was friendly and efficient. Care was clearly taken to ensure hygiene standards were high and steps taken to keep everyone safe. The prices are very reasonable - we have paid much more for food that was nowhere near as good! If we return to Edinburgh we will absolutely be going back to Taisteal.
