    Excellent service with very friendly attentive staff and great food. It was my husband's birthday so I had requested a table by the window when I booked through and on arrival we were welcomed and immediately shown to our table by the window with a perfect view of the castle. The staff also wished my husband a happy birthday and brought him a birthday dessert at the end of our meal which was a lovely surprise. The food was excellent and portion sizes were generous. A very positive experience of using and of Heights restaurant- I would highly recommend both.

    Excellent service and very good food. The view is to die for and all for a very reasonable price.

    Staff were patient as we waited for one of our guests who arrived some 45 minutes late. Marta was a delightful waitress. Friendly and helpful and sincere without intruding. Food was lovely and the amuse bouche to start was appreciated and unexpected, as were the chocolate truffles and shortcake to finish. Everyone said they enjoyed it having not eaten at heights previously.

    We were greeted as soon as we walked in, the service was the best I've received in edinburgh! Always there but not ntrusive and extremely amiable. The view of the castle was impressive and the sense of importance was added to by the offer of champagne or prosecco as we sat down. The chef sent a special taster before appetisers and it was just a taste of what was to come. The food quality was outstanding! We had a fabulous time and will definitely be back.

    This was our second visit, first time with family mixed ages .This time with a couple of friends, both experiences were good and a lovely evening was had by all. The food is more than expected for the price you pay.Staff are attentive but inconspicious

    My wife and I had a fantastic meal at here. I've rated it almost all 5 star (no I don't work there!). The food was beautiful, the staff were young but very helpful and knowledgeable about the food served that evening. Book a table at dusk to watch the castle slowly light up in front of you. One of those nights when everything was just right!

    The best thing about this meal was the price as we received 50% off our food & drink The worst thing was the service, the young staff did not know how to take your order properly
