Tigerlily Edinburgh Reviews
Feb 16, 2007
A typical Edwardian terrace frontage deceptively hides this spacious and extremely trendy bar and restaurant. The place consists of several differing rooms (well more like areas really as there are few walls between them) all having a differing seating arrangement. One space had large sofas round low tables whilst another had booths containing formal dining tables, whilst high tables and stools were the order of the day around the bar.
The bar was very well stocked with wines and spirits and the service swift, accommodating and friendly. Despite this being late afternoon it was still very busy and we had to wait for a table but the waiting staff were very attentive and we were soon ushered into a sort of conservatory to order food.
The menu consists of traditional restaurant fayre with a modern twist and was much more reasonably priced than the uber-cool nature of the décor might have implied. The highlight were the chilli-coated fries which are available as an accompaniment and were just the right side of spicy to be delicious.
The toilets were somewhat obscurely located and you're asked to opt for tigers or lilies rather than the more usual male or female (so it appears you decide how much of an animal you are feeling?) but once again they are exquisitely decorated.
Excellent food and excellent décor – one for all the hip and trendy to hang out.
