Always have a meal here when visiting Edinburgh and the quality of the burgers has never been bettered. This bar is in a narrow cobbled street behind George street and although well hidden it's always very busy. If doing the inspector Rebus tour the Oxford...More

Mannerly and friendly staff welcome you to your table. The wide selection of burgers are excellent either in a bun or with salad or indeed both. Good beers, wines and spirits. I loved the Venice burger and chips.

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
