Really friendly host! Lovely atmosphere. Food was sublime.
This place was amazing. The most delicious lunch we've had in a long time for an amazingly affordable price. We'll definitely be back
Third visit. All aspects good. Enjoyed meals there on all 3 occasions.
Excellent meal. Good value
The only very slight negative was there could have been a wider range of good beer on the menu. The food however was fabulous. We have a great evening and enjoyed every mouthful.
The food that we ate was delicious and perfect. We definitely will come back to this restaurant.
Really enjoyed tasting menu with matched drinks. Portions on large size for a 7 course tasting menu eg soup was full portion but combinations of ingredients and flavours was brilliant.
Top quality produce and creattive cuisine in a pleasant atmosphere. This definitely is a place to recommend !
Nice tasting menu, helpful and enthusiastic staff, busy place
Outstanding food & great service in a lovely relaxed atmosphere - perfect combination. Top class experience at a mid-range price meaning great value for money also. Will definitely recommend and we’re looking forward to coming back.
First visit will definitely be back.
A great early evening market menu which was amazingly good value. We all loved the menu, the service and the atmosphere and will definitely come back again and again and recommend our friends. Thank you.
THIS RESTAURANT WAS AMAZING IN EVERY RESPECT................ I WILL BE BACK FOR SURE!
Had a fantastic evening at Taisteal. The tasting menu was faultless.
Took my aunt to try the market menu at lunchtime as she’s keen on trying new places; hard to find somewhere different after her 50 years in Edinburgh! Innovative but tasty food, delightful service and excellent value for money. She - and we- will be back.
It was one of the best meals we have had since moving back to the UK 3 years ago. The flavours, presentation and portion size were just perfect. So good, we booked to come for Tuesday evening. Of particular note is the fact that this is fine dining without being pretentious. Relaxed and informal. We would give 10 stars if we could.
Amazing food, friendly service and relaxed atmosphere. This is our second visit and it certainly didn’t disappoint.
I can honestly say my partner and I found it one of the best meals we have ever tasted (and we have tasted a lot)! The service was impeccable and the food just divine! To top it off we have the 3 courses and a bottle of wine for two people and only £50! We could not believe it! I will be telling everyone that comes to Edinburgh to come straight to this wonderful restaurant!
An enjoyable experience
We have dined at Taisteal on several occasions. It is a great dining experience which never fails to surprise with flavours, choice and presentation. Our favourite restaurant!
My favorite restaurant in Edinburgh with dependably marvellous food and good service
Great addition to Stockbridge. Excellent service and interesting and innovative food. Tables for 4 are cramped and overloaded with bread, candles etc. Atmosphere gets much better as evening progresses.
We rate this our most outstanding meal of 2019.
We ate from the ‘Market menu’ - fantastic food and seriously good value. Highly recommended
We opted for the 5 course tasting menu hoping to try combinations we’d never experienced before. Well we weren’t disappointed! “Pig Pie” was particularly gorgeous and Banana Panna Cotta with Nutella Ice Cream - perfection!!
