Restaurant description

Situated on George Street, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the centre of the 18th-century town, Browns Brasserie & Bar – Edinburgh is a lively venue offering seasonal Scottish dishes, European cuisine, and a variety of colourful cocktails. With pavement dining during the warm months, and contemporary interiors, the building fits right in among neo-classical houses and pretty Georgian squares.

Spanning from breakfast through to lunch and dinner, the Browns menu offers all-day brasserie dining. Indulgent plats du jour and Sunday roasts are staple favourites, while sumptuous flavours include roasted lamb with potatoes & minted peas, Browns’ signature fish pie, and decadent salted caramel profiteroles. A sophisticated children’s menu at Browns offers tempting favourites with a grown-up twist.

Showcasing a penchant for cocktails, the Browns bar offers an array of classic mixes, signature concoctions and thirst-quenching mocktails, as well as fine world wines, and smoothies. Enjoy Browns’ afternoon tea and cake accompanied freshly-roasted coffee from an independent supplier, or a warming pot of loose leaf tea.

    Excellent light lunch. The Seared Tuna with tapenade and mussels was wonderful. Really friendly waiter full of cheery chat.

    Booked deal 2 courses + glass of wine £19.95. The menu we were given had 3 main choices BUT the salmon dish was not available at 13.10pm!!!! therefore down to 2 choices.I asked why and was advised they can't anticipate demand. We opted for regular menu as choices were not suitable for either of us and ended up paying £26 each for 1 course, 1 glass of wine and 1 tea each. Not impressed at all ....

    The afternoon tea was a big disappointment but at £13.50 we should have realised it wouldn't be fresh ingredients.

    We were here for afternoon tea, there was nothing exceptional about it and nothing to bad either. It was ok.

    Good service. One dish was over cooked but was soon rectified with a fresh plate of food.
