Refurbished in 2013 this historic Georgian meeting room was originally built to celebrate the Battle of Waterloo at the foot of Calton Hill, on Waterloo Place which is an extension of the east end of Princes Street. A large dining room bursting with character, a raised eating section at the bow end of the room and a private dining room all offering a wonderful atmosphere. dinner for 1, a private party for 28 or a full wedding including ceremony on the premises all part of day to day life in the best Scottish Restaurant in town.

Beautiful food extremely tasty and staff very engaging. 3 course lunch, all freshly prepared and finished off with rounds of shortbread. Popped in for lunch prior to Matinee at 🎭, will definitely be visiting for the evening menu 💕
Just arrived in Edinburgh and had dinner at Howies. Friendly staff. Vegetarian Haggas was delicious. The cod and salmon were fresh and delicious. Whiskey selection diverse. Desserts amazing! Hope to visit again before we leave Scotland. Excellent!!!!!
Took friends here for dinner who were visiting from overseas so they could experience a lovely, typically Scottish restaurant. The food, service and very friendly staff made the evening one to remember. Thank you

I visited Howies Waterloo Place with friends for lunch on 12th March 2019.
What more can i say except for the fact, Howies never disappoints.
The food on offer is varied & innovative & the portions are more than ample & also well presented.
Even on a Tuesday evening in March this beautiful dining room had a nice buzz about it and as always the service was pleasant, attentive and efficient. The food was as good as ever, quite absurdly good value for £14.95 for two courses (although I...More

A delightful meal to end our three days in Edinburgh. Amazing mussels, excellent terrine followed by beautifully cooked cod and salmon and finally my favourite, Affogato!! A definite port of call next visit to Edinburgh.
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The
top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
