Food was not very tasty. Limited choice. Very grumpy cook. Not recommended. Coffee was awful. My wife asked for fruit every day but this was only provided after a big sigh. There were also some nice waitresses.

We had a lovely family meal here on Sunday. There was one vegan family member and someone who had a nut allergy, staff couldn't have been more helpful. The food was excellent and would go back again. We used our itison vouchers.

Anywhere that serves a decent cooked breakfast and has clean comfortable and quiet bedroom with controllable heat has to get a good review. I particularly appreciated the socket near the bed, the complimentary toiletries, black pudding, and good TV. I was a bit put out to discover that what I thought was a (private) 1st floor room actually can be...

What a great experience. First time here and it won't be my last. The service and atmosphere were first class. Our server was pleasant and upbeat, she went thru the menu items we weren't sure about with ease. My steak was perfectly cooked and i could have easily eaten more!. Located in a great area of Edinburgh, we had a...

Went here for two course lunch with a drink on a voucher gifted by family. Not disappointed. Restaurant was not too busy and waiter was very attentive, courteous and efficient. Food was excellent. Rose wine was fine. Ideal spot for a nice lunch in a busy part of town. Small enough to feel cosy away from the bigger bustling restaurants...

Used an Itison voucher for 2 mains & wine which was amazing value for money. The chicken sandwiches and fries were delicious and the house rose was great too. Additional glasses of wine were provided at a special offer rate which made this a great meal out for very little money. Our initial waiter wasn't that bothered about us but...

Stayed over the weekend on the lowest level of the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised as many reviews mention noise, but we had two great nights' sleep! The room was lovely and clean, and the bed so comfortable! With little extras like straighteners, you really get everything you need. The real strong point of Rick's is its staff. They are...

Rick's is one of my regular haunts with friends and family. The food has always been great and staff always welcoming and friendly. They do a special offer every day- 2 mains for lunch for £10 or 2 courses for dinner at £10. However they are a tad cheeky and don't always offer you this- so make sure and ask...

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
