Fantastic! Large choice of teas, sandwiches, scones, Choux bun and cakes. Everything was lovely. Could not eat all the cakes so they packed them in a box for us to eat later. Good service, polite, courteous, could not ask for anything more.

Granny and Grandad, their 3 sons and their 3 wives, and 8 grandchildren took 2 tables on the raised level at the back of The Dome. Amazing decor, fabulous atmosphere, great service. All in all a lovely experience

Was given a voucher for Afternoon Tea with Cava at The Dome and was not disappointed. They recommend you book for afternoon tea and this is very easy to do on line. As the voucher had been for my birthday the staff wished me a happy birthday and when they brought the food out they had put a candle in one of the cakes which was a lovely touch. The sandwiches, scones and cakes were all very tasty and fresh and there was no rush to finish, we booked for 3.15pm and were there for about an hour.

Went for lunch with my wife, daughter and almost 3 year old granddaughter.

Been for a drink many times before, especially around Christmas when the Christmas decorations are spectacular in the Dome, not to be missed. First time during the day and the surroundings do not disappoint, beautiful place.

Matched by the attentiveness and friendliness of the staff who treated my granddaughter ever so well.

We settled for the two course lunch for £16, drinks and a couple of other extras. This is where we were a little disappointed. The menu was a bit unimaginative with only 3 main courses to choose from. The food served failed to live up to the splendid surroundings. Not that it was bad you just expect that little bit more to match the rest.

Don not let this put you off, perhaps it was a bad day, the Dome in Edinburgh is a must visit.
