About Monteiths

Monteiths restaurant is a hidden gem nestled in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town. The award winning eatery is one of the most critically acclaimed in Edinburgh and recently won the Hi-Life 2011 Award for best Scottish Restaurant.
The Royal Mile venue specialises in contemporary Scottish cuisine and has developed a great reputation for quality since opening.
The menu is influenced by classic British cookery. Head Chef Barry Shepard has created a series of fantastic menus since joining and specialises in seafood. He trained under Gerome Bertrand at the three rosette Lutines before a stage at the five star Dubai Metropolitan. He returned to work in the Channel Islands at the three rosette Bon Port before starting work as head chef at Monteiths. His love of Scotland's larder makes him an ideal candidate to build upon the restaurant's contemporary blend of Scottish cuisine.

Monteiths in Edinburgh was really nice. We arrived early and had cocktails which were really good and the sitting area was cosy. We were seated slightly before the booking time despite the restaurant being busy. The service was very friendly and the food excellent. We had the pigeon with black purdding and hake mains with chips and mashed potato. The portion of the chips and pigeon were not the largest portion ever had but the food was good. We shared the pear dessert and it was very good.

Monteiths, Edinburgh. Very good. all our group enjoyed the food, the decor, etc.

Fantastic Restaurant! We couldn't recommend highly enough a visit to Monteiths in Edinurgh...it was faultless. Set just off the Royal Mile you might expect to pay over the odds for pretty ordinary food, but you'd be mistaken. The food was excellent both in terms of variety of choices and actual quality. The atmosphere in there was great and the service was exceptional - very friendly and very welcoming. Well worth a visit.

Our dinner at Monteiths in Edinburgh was in all aspects an immensely enjoyable experience. The restaurant-cum-members' club atmosphere, offset by candlelight, lovely decor, and pleasant, friendly staff, complimented the taste-buds-enticing menu which consisted of traditional Scottish fare updated with some modern European, with a bit of a kick. Great for romantic dates and outings with friends, or when you just want a tasty meal in pleasant surroundings.

We went to Monteiths on Friday at 8:00pm and the the ambiance was cozy and buzzing.

The food was nicely presented. I had the cured salmon as a starter which was really nice - although slightly saltier than I would have liked.

I would still definitely recommend this place for a nice evening out i a group or as a couple.

Monteiths restaurant in Edinburgh. Superb meal and an excellent enthuiastic waitress. Will definately be back.

Atmospheric and a real jewel on Edinburgh's Royal Mile. Great bar, very relaxed feel to the place yet good food an slick service. Wine list a little light, however to its credit a good spread across grape varietals and producers. Only criticism was lack of decanter for our bottle of Chateau Musar 2001. Otherwise a great evening.

My wife and I walked down an archway of fairy lights to discover Monteiths hidden away off the Royal Mile, Edinburgh. As we descended into the cellar, we were warmly welcomed into the authentic Scottish restuarant. As an Englishman abroad, I thoroughly enjoyed my first ever Haggis (excellent flavours!) and wood pigeon - washed down with cocktails. The service was exemplary and atmosphere relaxed. Moneteiths comes highly recommended for anyone looking for some proper Scottish flavours and charm!

We went to Monteiths, Edinburgh for an evening meal and found both the food (particularly the pork belly) and service very good. Will definitely go again and would recommend to friends.

We went on 24th March, 4 women looking for good food and a relaxing atmosphere. This restaurant surpassed expectations, and we would definitely return. Every course was tasty, well presented, and just asking to be fed in forkfuls to each of us 'just to see if it's as good as it looks'. Wine was lovely, and very decently priced. the wee outdoors seating area was handy for nicotine addicts, but also a pretty area for any non smoker who just wants to chill outdoors. Service excellent. Go.

We entered through a concealed entrance off the High Street into a cosy romantically lit book-lined restaurant. Service was efficient and the food arrived in good time. My whitebait starter was delicious and well presented; my wife's crayfish cocktail light and appetising. I chose duck for my main dish, which was served with a bean salad. My wife's steak was cooked the way she liked i t, accompanied by roasted vine tomatoes and duck-fat chips. We didn't get the 20% off food Toptable offer.

Our visit to Montheiths was simply divine! the food is sensational, we sampled all three courses and there was no disappointments. the ambience is relaxed, luscious without being pretentious and we sat quite happily for over 2 hours without event realising it. The staff are helpful without being over bearing. I cannot recommend Montheiths enough, and we will definitely be going there again...and again...and again

I return to Monteith's, Edinburgh, time and time again and I am never disappointed. Whether I go with friends or with family, for cocktails or for food, the experience is always a pleasure.

Monteiths is a lovely chic restaurant on Edinburghs,' Royal Mile. The food is imaginative and beautifuly, but not fussily, served. Good selection of wine and cocktails.Attentive staff. Recommended

Excellent food. Waited a while on drinks and top ups of wine. Waiters much more attentive on last visit. Would still go back though.

Monteiths gave us very good quality food in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and there when you needed them but without rushing you. The menu was enticing and the food lived up to its promise. We'd certainly recommend a pre or post (or both) cocktail in the bar, and the trio of wines was a nice touch. If we lived in Edinburgh we'd certainly be regulars!

Monteiths, Edinburgh - My boyfriend and I had a lovely meal in here last night, really welcoming - loved the decor and the girl who served us looked after us all night and made sure we had a great night.

Spent a really pleasant Sunday evening here at short notice. Staff are friendly, the location intimate and cozy and the food impressed. Upon arrival we were greeted and promptly sat at the bar while our table was prepared. Staff are friendly and attentive and overall we really enjoyed the evening. Only minus point was they forgot to deduct the toptable offer from the bill - unfortunately I didnt notice until I got home. Otherwise very good.

We went to Monteiths, Edinburgh for a family meal for my Father's birthday and we didn't want to leave! Between the 5 of us we probably had one of everything on the menu and no-one was disappointed. To top that our waitress was fantastic and made the evening really special. We will definitely be returning for the next family birthday!

Nice place with great decoration and music, food was average and small quantities and it took a long time to get served. Overall good night but could be better value for money!
