About Tigerlily

Pioneering style bar and restaurant in Edinburgh city centre

When Tigerlily launched in 2006, it arguably kick started the renaissance of George Street as the capital’s most fashionable area for eating and drinking. A 2015 refurbishment ensured that the boutique hotel, bar and restaurant stays at the head of the pack. With mirrored walls, chandeliers, clever lighting and several different spaces, the decor of the dining areas helps make for a memorable meal. An extensive drinks list with innovative cocktails plus much sought after pavement terrace tables all add to Tigerlily’s undoubted appeal.

Local produce, seasonal menus

From breakfast through to dinner, local produce shines through on the seasonal menus at Tigerlily. Isle of Skye langoustines, Scotch lamb and Aberdeenshire beef aged in a Himalayan salt cellar all make regular appearances on the seasonal menus. The dishes mix and match cleverly from around the world. Diners might start with tempura asparagus or a smoked ham hock doughnut before moving on to a beef Thai salad; honey-glazed duck breast with a butternut squash purée or fish and triple cooked chips with haddock landed at Peterhead. Tigerlily also serves afternoon tea, a special treat when taken in the eye-catching Georgian Lounge.
