kennimac last updated on 5 February 2011: This place has gone downhill. Smaller portions with less meat and has there been a price increase? Overall I get the impression they are busier gen...

Now officially my favourite restaurant in Edinburgh. Fantastic food and no-nonsense service.

Classic British comfort food with little modern twists. No frills, no fuss. Just good food.

This place is fab. I live around the corner, and my flatmate and I often go for food here. The interior is a laid back shabby chique, with mismatching chairs and there’s fab lighting.
The food is super yummy, a bit of a twist on the home comfort food thing, but with some wacky stuff in there too, like lamb’s heart. The staff are always really helpful if you can’t quite decide what to have! I can highly recommend the 3 cheese and cauliflower barley risotto. Amazing!

enjoyed a simple, homemade, inexpensive meal - in central Edinburgh - in well designed, clean, bright surroundings...
On top of which, the staff were friendly, swift and had personality.
Recommended by the b & b we were staying in (Millers 64) - and not surprised by this - a definate shared ethos - discreet, well made food and drink

Totally agree with the last reviewer - I just don't get it with these restaurants.
The food is cheap, stodgy and mostly appears to be designed to clog the arteries. Thank god the portions are small!
The service is dreadful, with a "I may be a waiter but I'm really a more superior individual than you" attitude. You feel like you are going to knock elbows with diners at the next table and you can't hear what your dining companion is sayiing to you the level of noise is so loud. You have to keep your knife and fork for the next course and plates etc are mismatching. It's all very tacky.
All in all everything is designed to keep the price down, and as they say "you get what you pay for". Here is the crux of the matter - many diners will think all this is worth putting up with because cheap=good deal ... well not for me!

I am sorry, but I hate this place - I wish I could find something positive to say, but I think people have a strange view of what is value for money these days, not to mention decor and design. I mean, since when did we think it was stylish to sit in a room dedicated to the owners passion for his doggies!
The food is that 'look what we're doing for you little man' style that is so 'now'-.....maybe it's just me, but I can see no redeeming qualities for any of these establishments. Seems to be just an excuse for the so called Edinburgh posh set to sit there and stroke themselves and talk about what they just bought in Jane Davidson!
The service is always up itself, the people are aloof and the food is just not that good. And to sit their surrounded by the Canine version of Venus Rising staring down at you from the walls just makes me want to scream (talking about Amore here).
Wake up Edinburgh!

Nice restaurant with a quirky menu, a good atmosphere and helpful staff. I can understand why it gets rave reviews, however I found the food a little rich for my liking but I'm not going to knock the place for that.
Its certainly worth a visit.

We went to the dogs on the recomendation of qype reviews. We only stayed 5 minutes due to the busy hustle and bustle noisy atmosphere.
Personally I do not like sitting so close to the table next to you, that the waiters have to squeeze inbetween and you have to lean in close to create your own personal space. The wooden tables, chairs and floor create a clattery cafe environment. There was also only fancy bottled beer rather than a decent draught available.

I had resisted going to the Dogs for ages. I didn't think it could live up to the hype. I was wrong - the place is a delight.
It is a seriously relaxed atmosphere with super easy food. I don't think there was anything on the menu I wouldn't have eaten. The food is
The prices are great - don't miss this restaurant / kitchen if your in Edinburgh

Cool place very urban and quirky in a trendy sort of way. The dog theme runs throught the restaurant with dog cushions on the seats, a dog clock and when you open the door you are greeted by the biggest dog statue.
Great food and they keep the prices right down, you can get delicious stovies or the most fab fish n chips with delectable mushy peas, you cant have fish n chips without mushy peas come on.
Service is fast and friendly enough but I do think these guys work on a get em in get em out type basis. Great food though, beautiful surroundings I really like the way its decorated and it does have a sort of urban cosiness about it, I know thats not even an actual term but its the only way I can think of to describe it.
Really great food that you would expect to pay a lot more for, value for money really and so not what I expected. Love it.
