The staff were shocking bad. The glasses were filthy . I was attacked by a friend of the security who was attempting a head butt at me after I expressed dissatisfaction of the the services. I am truly appalled by this business. The pizza was sub standard. It's clearly a drunken food outlet with little to no consideration of the... More

Negative reviews can be a powerful thing! It's incredibly unfortunate that people are confusing the excellent Pizza Paradise in George the IV bridge with the not so excellent one on South Bridge. Having worked in the old RIE, Pizza Paradise (on George the IV bridge!!!) is very familiar. I ate there recently and the Pizza's remain superb and great value... More

We had seen this place the day before, and decided to skip the hotel breakfast (for digestive reasons) so we set our sights on Kabob! Good food, fair price, fast a little less than friendly service, but all I wanted was the grilled cone of meat inside a wrap😎

This is the 'Pizza Paradise' located next to the statue of Greyfriars Bobby on George IV Bridge! Sad to see this one being mixed up with the other place since this takeaway is excellent! I love coming here to buy Chips 'n' Cheese with Garlic Chili sauce on a night out in the town! It's so delicious! Their Shawarma's are... More

The pizza was frozen. Please don`t give your money to these people, Tesco`s pizza is the same. We are Italian ad we know something about it.

I have eaten at both pizza paradises and this one is far, far superior. I eat there a couple of lunchtimes per month (usually to quash a hangover). The staff are friendly, the food fresh and served in generous portions, and OMG it's cheap! Do not mistake it for the Pizza Paradise on South Bridge though!

This is a small self service pizza joint. I was delighted to find freshly baked Vegetarian pizza on the menu. Food was good especially at the offered price.

And that is saying quite a lot considering I use to make my "healthy pizza" as a uni student- without yeast, oil, or cheese. This was far, far worse.

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
