Overcharged us but overall a nice experience
Food was pretty tasty though the portions were small. Did 2 courses and drink for £20 through 5pm deal but were overcharged by £5 per person - the staff were apologetic about this when we pointed it out though.
Lovely décor and ambience inside - nice cocktails. Prefer as a bar rather than a restaurant.
Had a lovely christmas lunch here. The food was very good, tasty and well presented. Excellent friendly service and would definitely go back.
Chic restaurant and bar in Edinburgh city centre
Rabble is a cosmopolitan restaurant and bar with rooms on Frederick Street, right in the heart of Edinburgh city centre. A glass roof and lots of vibrant green plants give the dining area an enjoyable outdoors-but-indoors feel. In the bar, a glowing wall of bottles catches the eye as do the two gleaming copper tanks which dispense fresh, unpasteurised Staropramen. Classic and modern cocktails, highballs, great wines and bespoke gin and tonics complete the picture. Rabble is part of the award-winning Montpeliers group.
Low and slow cooking
The Josper and Robata grills are at the heart of the food offer at Rabble. Carefully selected meat and the finest seafood are cooked low and slow over white oak charcoal to produce signature dishes such as the 60-hour rubbed beef short rib or the grilled cod. Local produce is celebrated with options such as the Orkney steak burger or the T-bone steak from Limousin cattle reared in the Borders. Vegetarian options include the black lentil dahl, salt-baked beetroots and char grilled asparagus.
Sharing platters, gourmet sandwiches, salads and Rabble’s innovative lunchbox menu complete the picture. From breakfast and brunch through working lunches and on to convivial dinners, Rabble’s chefs have a dish for every diner and all times of day.
