We liken to come here for a cocktail and something descent to eat. Never disappointed. I always order the chilli fries as I can eat them by the bucket. The cocktails were amazing this time I tried the mooberry bluffen and it didn't disappoint.

This place is great for milkshakes! Omg they were so delicious. The staff were lovely - we were travelling here and wasn’t sure where places were. But so happy we stumbled across this place. The decor was great and gave the whole place such atmosphere!...More

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look

The Boozy Cow fuses locally sourced and specially selected ingredients to create mouth-watering juicy burgers which are made on the premises fresh every morning by our talented team. Where possible we will be sourcing ingredients and working with local suppliers. The menu includes a selection of mouth watering and juicy burgers bursting with flavour and oozing with tasty goodness. When enjoying one of handcrafted burgers and sipping on our oreo shake sit back and take in the unique interiors we have created for you. The Boozy Cow will also be bringing their popular chilli challenge to Edinburgh. The challenge sees contestants given 15 minutes to eat one chilli cheese burger, one chilli dog, one portion of chilli cheese fries and one Oreo milkshake. We invite you to party until the cows come home at 1am seven days a week, where you can expect an eclectic mix of music with DJs on Tuesday, Friday & Saturday nights. Our talented team has created a selection of cocktails which includes your classic Amicus favourites with a twist and new boozylicious cocktails which will tingle your taste buds!
