    We have been to Michael Neave several times - when ever we go to Edinburgh - we love the food and the service - is is consistently of a high standard .

  • ((((( 17 July 2018 by Liz from Edinburgh

    We like the menu, not one of those overly long pretentious menus. Choice is more than adequate as all dishes in the main are drawing on local produce.

    Excellent meal!

  • ((((( 10 July 2018 by Rebecca from Warrington

    Excellent from start to finish
    Bar staff friendly and informative with drinks selection and advice
    Food was fantastic, even for a fussy eater I had no complaints
    Would definitely recommend a visit
    Only small issue was the incline and my heels, but Edinburgh in general is full of hills and it was my own choice to walk

    As usual, everything was perfect. The lamb dish was cooked absolutely spot on. Service at this restaurant is excellent.

  • ((((( 4 July 2018 by Heather from Edinburgh

    My second visit and would thoroughly recommend it. I particularly like the fact that extra staff appear from nowhere to ensure everyone is served at the table at the same time.
    Only slight criticism is that it’s very noisy and sometimes I couldn’t hear my friends conversations as noise from other tables bounced around the hard surfaces.
    I’ll be back!

    Absolutely outstanding meal, lovely restaurant and fabulous staff - a great dining experience with friends from the USA. We all enjoyed our meals which looked fabulous and tasted delivious.

  • ((((* 3 July 2018 by Richard from Edinburgh

    What a wonderful evening. From the lovely cocktails to the sticky toffee souffle. Service was very good and kind, although a bit stiff. Our show stopper was the saddle of Venison. We love venison and eat it regularly. However, never as good as here. A reason to come back.
