Makars Gourmet Mash Bar (Mound)
Everything was great from start to finish. The scotch egg was, however, a huge disappointment. Stick with the mash and other meat, and it will be a great meal!
One of the best restaurants I’ve been. The food is absolutely fantastic, we had the haggis, the sausage and lamb. All great! Also the chive and bacon mash is perfection on a plate! Every time I come to Edinburgh, I have to go there. Ambiance is great and staff is super nice. Favorite place in the UK for sure <3
A must visit place for the best Scottish locally sourced meal in Edinburgh
Amazing food and great service. Highly recommend.
The food was absolutely amazing and our waiter David was super nice. We enjoyed the food and the relaxed atmosphere.
Amazing!! Would highly recommend. Come on an empty stomach because it’s a lot of delicious food.
Makar’s was amazing. Probably our favorite meal from Edinburgh. Great vegetarian options that aren’t just side dishes. Would definitely recommend but book ahead!
Delicious food, nice venue, good choice of wines but would have liked more options in bottled/tap beers. Could have been more attentive service wise but good experience overall
Fantastic little restaurant, the food was outstanding and the service was excellent. On my next visit to Edinburgh I will defiantly eating here.
Gathered at Makars Mash for a family dinner, had everyone coming from different countries and cities so have booked online in advance. The table was ready for us and the people serving were attentive, friendly and nice all of the evening. The meal we had were delicious and good looking, we had a vegetarian in our party, and was very happy about his choices too. All in all 10/10, a place to come back to. Many thanks, all of us enjoyed our dinner!
Makhars is a must on our Edinburgh visits - so when we can we always book way in advance not to miss out ! This is unusual for us as we tend to be more spontaneous. But we love the concept and the food! Mash is my daughter's favourite so we treat her everytime we visit her at Uni, and we love it too. Tasty, simple yet lots to explore. Nice location too. See you soon
Delicious food, generous portions, great service and a cosy atmosphere, just what was needed after a long day of sightseeing. Would highly recommend and would advise to book ahead as we did to avoid disappointment.
We had a fantastic visit! Both food and drink were excellent and our server was funny and attentive. Great place- we'll be back!
Excellent food, great atmosphere, wonderful service, would highly recommend.
Great food and service in a fun, comfortable atmosphere.
After reading very good reviews (over rated?), we were disappointed as it turned out as an average experience. The service and ambience was good but nothing special. The food was good but also nothing special. Sorry to say, but we all make better mash at home.
Awesome spot in Scotland!
A great find! We had the beef shin and lamb shank, both beautifully tender in deep, flavoursome sauces. The other star of the show is the mash, of which we had two different flavours (the cheese and the horseradish) with a side of the bacon variety. All outstanding. Nice wine too and cheerful, friendly staff. Don't miss this place if you visit Edinburgh.
I totally recommend this, great location, good vibe inside, smooth service. food quality is fantastic for the price with a good selection of authentic infused Scottish food. Also good selection of drinks.
Fantastic food and friendly service! Have been several times and never disappointed!
We had amazing meal at the smaller of the two restaurants. Would definitely visit again
We visited on a Sunday afternoon 4pm so we were ready for our lunch I ordered the haggis and black pudding mash with peppercorn sauce and it was one of the most tastiest meals I have ever had in my life! Deffo recommend X
Service und Essen waren sehr gut. Trotz sehr gut besuchtem Lokal und entsprechendem Stress kam das Essen schnell und der Srvice war stets freundlich und aufmerksam. Mash‘s sind lecker. Können wir jederzeit weiter empfehlen.
We had a wonderful dinner here. They offer high quality and delicious tasting food. They were out of some menu options which was a bummer, but settled in some beef and lamb dishes that did not disappoint. We would definitely go back!
Relaxed setting for tasty food with some good options for vegetarians (yes, haggis!). The staff were attentive but not overly so and we were looked after well.
Loved it. Tried a few different items and loved the Rosti the best. Great staff.
Fabulous food and lovely friendly staff especially David
Awesome experience with a unique menu!
I was able to book a table with 1 day notice for a group of 8, which was amazing. We were travelling from Iceland and everyone in the group was very happy with both the food and the service. I had the duck, which was amazing and just fell off the bone and my partner had the haggish with black pudding mash and said it was an experience for a lifetime. We will definitely recommend this place to everyone we know and to everyone who is planning on going to Edinburgh. We will definitely come back to Makars when we come back to Edinburgh! Also, I want to thank our waiter, I can't remember his name but he had dark hair. He was very accommodating, funny and charming and really made our stay pleasant.
Really tasty, friendly service, great atmosphere. You could tell they were rushed off their feet but it didn’t impact any of the above in the slightest. Would go back if we are visiting Edinburgh again
Been to Makars on the mound a few months ago and was coming to Edinburgh for a concert with a friend so it was a great chance to introduce him to Makars too. We all had a different meal and feedback was positive from everyone.
Will definately be back.
Super place. The atmosphere was great, not very busy when we went (a Sunday evening) but still had a nice feel. The food was superb ( I had the lamb shank - fall off the bone and very tasty, the wife had a smoky sausage) and the service matched. Well worth a visit!
Excellent food and a great ambience. The drinks are a good measure and good value for money. The food was also good value and decent sized dishes with some good recommends from our excellent waitress for the night. Good choice but not too much to confuse, so all in all an excellent dining experience
Excellent food and service. Could not be faulted and would definitely recommend
Good food and service
Was a lovely evening with lovely food in a lovely place. Was simply lovely
Very nice food. Friendly staff. Only a couple of diners in the restaurant on a late Sunday afternoon.
Would definitely return if in Edinburgh.
Looked after wonderfully well by Louise ... great food ...perfect for after rugby match ... comfort food at its best.
Thoroughly enjoyed our meals here on Saturday night. Great service from pleasant staff. Nice laid back atmosphere.
Great service, lovely food, and friendly staff. Would definitely go again.
Great service,terrific food served by a charming Australian waitress.We were visiting Edinburgh for the day and this topped off a lovely time we had.Will certainly recommend the venue to family and friends. Pity there’s no Mash bar in Cheshire!
