Toby's are always good in my opinion and this one was no different. Usual range of food, as good as they always are. The staff are very pleasant and efficient and our waitress was exceptionally patient and kind with my three small grandchildren. We were there for a family get-together and it proved a great success.

We visited for dinner when they had 25% Off, which made it even better value than usual. The food was really good as was the service.

We go here regularly as we love it. The staff are friendly and great with our kids. We went for breakfast recently and it was a very relaxed atmosphere. The food is always to a high standard and prices are fair too!

Please stay away from here. Plates are not clean and are disgusting as is the food. I asked the not very clean looking chief if he wanted a razor blade to cut the meat as he could not cut it any thinner if he tried. As for the veg . So dry and been out for ages. The veg counter... More

Description
Welcome to the Toby Carvery Edinburgh West. When it comes to roast dinners, we really know our stuff. Every day our chefs lay on a feast of tender, hand-carved meats with all the trimmings – including towering Yorkshire puds, golden roasties with all those lovely little crunchy bits, and plenty of freshly prepared veg, all crowned with proper gravy. So it's no wonder we're Edinburgh’s favourite carvery restaurant. Drop by and you'll find lots more on offer, including cooked breakfasts and tasty specials.
