First time visit for my partners birthday meal, food was gorgeous and served very promptly. Cocktail menu was something different too and the main thing that led me to choose this venue. We were served by a lovely lady named Anna I believe, who was very polite, friendly, and made us feel very welcome and relaxed especially considering this was our first outing since COVID. Highly recommend and can’t fault the service!

Considering this was a booking made for a birthday there were no little touches or mention of any kind which was a little disappointing. We made the reservation as we have been before and previously enjoyed your establishment but considering current covid social distancing rules we're surprised to be seated next to the toilet entrance probably the most high traffic area in the place. I do believe especially this table at the top of the stairs should be unused at this time. The food was nice but the overall experience was a bit of a letdown to be honest.

We spent 3 nights in Edinburgh staying in a hotel on the Royal Mile. We found this place on the first night and it was so good we spend all 3 nights there for dinner and drinks. The food and service was outstanding. The bar itself is absolutely beautiful inside and accordingly decorated. This is definitely one of my favourite places in Edinburgh and will highly recommend and will be visiting on our next trip here.

We ate at the Whiski Bar & Restaurant on two of our five nights in Edinburgh. The food was lovely. I would definitely recommend the venison, haggis and chicken dishes. The Covid restrictions meant you were served at your table. I much prefer this continental way of doing things and makes for a relaxed evening. The service was excellent and we were served by a very pleasant and helpful young lady. If we ever return to Edinburgh we would definitely eat here again

As always As always, incredible food and drinks and cosy atmosphere. All COVID-19 systems in place and it was good to see that the servers would remind customers to have their face mask on if they had forgotten to en route to the toilets. I am originally from Edinburgh, now living abroad and I make sure to come here every time I am home as I have been going for years and never had a below-brilliant experience here. Looking forward to next visit here when I’m next home already!
