Angels with Bagpipes is not only one of the best Scottish restaurants in Edinburgh, it also reflects many of the city’s most defining features.


Beautiful, atmospheric

Having opened on the Royal Mile in 2010, Angels with Bagpipes has quickly established itself as one of the best Scottish restaurants in Edinburgh. Mixing an atmospheric Old Town setting with chic, contemporary looks, Angels with bagpipes was designed to fit perfectly into its Royal Mile setting.

Pride in fresh, seasonal, Scottish ingredients is what defines Angels with Bagpipes and makes us one of the top Scottish restaurants in Edinburgh. Open through the day and evening , we are the perfect spot for a quick lunch or a relaxing dinner.

With French windows opening out onto Roxburgh’s Court steps, the atmospheric Dining Room is at the airy heart of Angels with Bagpipes. Lit with eye-catching, winged angel candlesticks, it is a buzzy, comfortable space in which to enjoy some of the finest Scottish food in Edinburgh. Our chanters dining room offers private dinning for larger parties and is perfect for intimate weddings and family occasions


For more private occasions, the beautiful Halo room almost seems to floats above Roxburgh’s Close. A cosy, magical space, subtly decorated with Scottish emblems, it feels discreetly separate from the rest of the diners. It fits four people snugly but is ideal for two and its romantic intimacy means it has been the setting for several marriage proposals.




Sit outside in the heart of the Royal mile all year round. Our outside seating is perfect for the festival and summer evenings. In winter sit comfortably under heat lamps and blankets with some home made mulled wine. Situated at the front of the restaurant our bar area has floor to ceiling doors which make it the perfect place to soak up the always entertaining street life on the Royal Mile.
