Lovely bar with excellent service
Me and a friend enjoyed a two course meal with wine on a busy Friday night. My friend is gluten free and the waitress marked everything on the deal that she could eat. The food was lovely and the house wine was nice too. The service was especially good and we were well looked after.
Will be back for more
Quiet for Monday lunch. Lovely place with a beautiful garden room at the back. Excellent food and service. The quality of the food and portions were impressive. We had to pass on dessert and the Scottish cheese selection. They catered well for allergies. On a warmer day there was outside seating.
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.
