The maitre'd who seated us is a regular feature (we saw him at breakfast as well), and was extremely nice. While service here was... More

On DBB at the Marine Hotel and delighted to say that the Craigleith was a real find. Starter of beef carpaccio, tongue cubes, aioli and salad leaves. Main was Sea Bass with Papardelli, cooked to perfection and this was a new menu. Absolutely wonderful! Dessert for me was a selection of up to 9 cheeses, 3 was more than sufficient.... More

Ate here whilst staying at the hotel. The food was first class and very tasty with ample portions. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There is a good choice on the menu and a large wine selection. There was ample seating but it was very busy so probably worth booking.

the food is very good here, a good selection, and it was all cooked to perfection. The staff were helpful, but sometimes tried to push us to order more expensive choices than we wanted to, mostly for drinks.

We booked a dinner,bed and breakfast stay at this hotel and to be honest were a little concerned at some of the reviews of this restaurant. Maybe we were lucky but the service and food were fantastic. I had shredded duck to start and chicken with gnocchi as my main...both were fresh and tasty.My wife loved her meals as well.... More
