    Would definitely go back! Tigerlily is a great restaurant

    We had the Aberdeen Angus Sirloin steak and it was delicious, and for dessert I had the sticky toffee pudding which was really nice, overall it was a great meal and I would highly recommend going but as a one off now and again because it’s quite expensive.

    We liked the restaurant very much.

    Whilst this was overall a very good experience I think in future I would opt for the main menu as the set menu was for me anyway somewhat repetitive i.e. the starter and main courses had similar contents and despite being advised to change my first choices for this reason I ended up with two chicken dishes which was disappointing. The ambience and waiters were great. Some confusion arose from the included drink. The blurb included beer but on ordering a 'coors light' we were told this was not included in the 5pm deal. Although it was eventually allowed perhaps some clarification is required on accepted drinks. However we liked the restaurant very much.

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.
