Well, i have heard a lot about Nando's just never about what kind of food it was! Now i know! Its yummy chicken however it was really spicy. My husband and I really enjoyed the food.

Delicious food. We ate here twice. The second time was on a Friday night. Never again. I should have known better. But, the food was still good. Just slow service. Quick and efficient service when we went for lunch. Located super close to the National Museum. So, it was a convenient stop, too!

Chicken does not need to be boring and Nandos have it down to an art form. The four of us left really full to be honest i left food on my plate as the portions are big. The only thing i felt wrong was it was very cold up stairs i had my jacket on to keep me warm until... More

I can imagine this is a great place for young people. Easy going place with a somewhat fast food feel. You order your food at the counter and the order is served to your table. You get your own cuttlery, drinks and choose the sauce. The one sauce we wanted wasn't available it so turned out once the order arrived... More

The chicken was cold and dry my husbands chips were cold and tasted as though they had been re-heated my mashed potatoes were cold.

We were seated quickly and food was speedy and tasty. However I felt the floors and tables appeared grubby which was a shame as everything else was good.

Nando's have never disappointed me. This was my first visit after becoming a vegetarian. I can safely rate this place as vegetarian friendly.

My favourite nandos in Edinburgh. Rather quiet, in a scenic place with very attentive staff. High quality food as with all Nandos

Dropped in for a coffee before a meeting at the nearby National Museum of Scotland that stands nearby. Served quickly in this spacious restaurant by a cheery waiter and the coffee was very good.

This is one of the worst Nando's I have been in they had run out of a few things that we asked for my chicken was just ok but my boyfriend had to return his as the chicken and his chips were Luke warm the did resolve this quick enough but still wasn't enjoyably. Won't be back to this Nando's.

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
