After reading reviews managed to get a booking for the Friday. What a lovely evening, the food was delicious and the atmosphere very romantic. If in Edinburgh and you can secure a table I would highly recommend. The restaurant only seats 24 so try and book early to avoid disappoint. I had the Salmon, and would highly recommend it.

I lived in Edinburgh for 7 years eating here regularly, however I've been away for 12 years and came bs k up for a weekend away, once again Dubh Prais was outstanding from starter to dessert. Very traditional Scottish food at its best. Thank you.

Was looking for a true Scottish dinning experience and found it here. While the ambiance was ok ( never a fan of eating in below ground restaurants ) the food was simply amazing and service was great. Ingredients were so fresh, tastes were outstanding, portions were large. After coming from London the prices were also very affordable for such great... More

Dubh Prais does good quality Scottish cooking with good quality Scottish produce. There is nothing especially original about the dishes so I wouldn't dine at Dubh Prais expecting anything too cutting edge . However I would dine there if reliable, tasty Scottish dining is what is is desired. Dining area is small and intimate which makes for a cosy and... More

This restaurant was fantastic! When you arrive there are only about 8 tables in the restaurant, so it is a simple dining room but at the same time extremely warm and inviting! The service was excellent, kind and helpful. The food was more than fantastic. One of the best meals I've ever had!

We were visiting Edinburgh for 3 days, for Valentines and a birthday (mine), and really wanted to find an appropriate location for a special meal. We had wandered up and down the High Street a few times, and there are plenty of very nice cafes, pubs and bars - but very few restaurants. Unfortunately for Dubh Prais the frontage of... More

This is a very intimate restaurant, set opposite the Radisson Blu Hotel. Be sure to book as very limited space, the food was excellent and cooked well. The staff were friendly, if in central Edinburgh then a good choice as offers a very good alternative to the National restaurant chains.

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
