Lovely Restaurant, Right in the heart of the Old Town

June 2024 – This was such a lovely restaurant right in the heart of the old town. We happened to visit on their first day of the summer tasting menu which was delightful! Some of my favourite dishes from the menu: The Peach Melba Dessert with Scottish Strawberries was sooo good.

Birthday lunch

The restaurant is beautiful with views of the castle, the service and food is impeccable and great value. I had the lobster thermador Mac & Cheese which was phenomenal and portion size was unreal! Can’t recommend this restaurant or its sister restaurants Contini and Scottish cafe

This was an amazing last place to eat in Edinburgh!

I try to eat fairly plant based and this place has amazing options that weren’t just a garden salad. I got the asparagus to start, and we tried the courgette soup. I cannot stop thinking about that soup. I’m scouring the internet for a recipe. I also got the roasted vegetable salad and it was amazing. I can’t wait to go back.

Great food and good views, excellent service

We booked our company Christmas dinner here on the 10th December. The manager and the team were all excellent in helping to get it organised for us, and the service and food were excellent. I would highly recommend. Great views of Edinburgh Castle, fantastic food and great cocktails.

It was our first night and first visit to Edinburgh and I truly couldn’t have booked a better place to eat

Grilled oysters, haggis rolled balls, venison and pork belly and did i mention the most amazing view of Edinburgh Castle with an amazing light show. The food was delicious, the staff courteous and an amazing atmosphere. Thank you so much for an excellent experience.

Superb Customer Service

We brought our visitors from Chile to Cannonball for lunch and drinks. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere was excellent but I have to say it was the flawless customer service that really made our visit so memorable. The young server, Sierra, really was impeccably attentive, genuine and well mannered and the added bonus of being well travelled made for delightful conversation. The barman also had excellent whiskey knowledge and our visitors enjoyed the whiskey of the week description. Real assets to the business. Thank you and we look forward to returning.

Celebration Lunch

I organised a 50th birthday lunch for 20 at Canonball House in their private room and it was a wonderful experience. The setting, food and staff were exceptional and the attention to detail in the planning from the events team, excellent. e had such a good time we went back a couple of months later for an extended family celebration and had just as good an experience second time round. Highly recommend

We had our Golden Wedding celebration in this beautiful restaurant at the weekend

It is a truly magical place! The events team supported us brilliantly through all the planning and the restaurant team on the night were superb. The food is outstanding! We could not have asked for more for our milestone event.
