Went on the Monday night just after their reopening and the popularity of this small restaurant was obvious as a sign on the door explained they were fully booked! Not sure what it looked like before the redecoration but now appears as a small, informal family bistro, with a limited menu, rather than the restaurant I was perhaps mistakenly. expecting.... More

Excellent quality restaurant with very good steak and haggis. Quite small, although our, booked, table was fine. Lot of people were turned away without reservations. Reasonably priced and well located on Rose St.

My first trip to Edinburgh and I was very impressed with the city, the people and the food. My husband took me to Wildfire as he'd been there before. We didn't have a booking but luckily they fitted us in on the late sitting, which suited us perfectly. I had the haggis to start with. It was filling but utterly... More

e dined as a couple after Christmas whilst visiting Edinburgh having booked in advance after read good reviews - it didn't disappoint. The staff were very friendly and the service faultless. We had starters of mussels and goats cheese, mains of Fish Pie and Fillet Steak. Desert was oatmeal/honey/whiskey ice-cream with fabulous shortbread and a sticky toffee pudding. We couldn't... More

Managed to squeeze in here on a Friday evening on a booking made on a Wednesday morning - and was not disappointed. Warm, friendly welcome on arrival by the 2 female waiting staff who were on good form while we were there with their good friendly chat with all the diners. The food was excellent - would thoroughly recommend the... More

It is a small place (ca 28 places), so booking is essential. Service is good but staff could be better informed about local products. We had a very good fish pie followed by four local cheeses. This was perfect as was the Austrian wine we had.

What a wonderful little restaurant, we ate lunch here on a Saturday recently, thankfully we had booked as the restaurant is small. We received a wonderful welcome and were shown to our table immediately and a jug of water was put down straight away - excellent start. Orders for drinks followed very quickly and lunch order followed - very slick,... More

We were recommended to eat here by friends and were not disappointed. Cosy atmosphere and ideal for a romantic evening. Staff very welcoming on arrival. I started with the haggis which was excellent and we both had the steak which were both cooked perfectly. Seem to remember we were the last to leave - one or two malts flowing at... More

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.
