Having moved to the area 12 months ago, the Cameo is a firm favourite and a regular haunt of ours.

The food is pretty good pub grub, the drinks are very reasonable indeed and the staff are brilliant - always friendly, and always go out of their way to help.

Whether we're still living in the area or not, we'll definitely keep coming back here! A great relaxed local!

Was not impressed at all with this place!! The manager has a attitude problem! He was very very rude and extremely arrogant the only person that had any manners at all was the American waitress. The rest of the staff where not nice either, the manager slammed our food down on the table, and was horrible to a young woman that fell. She happened to slip on the wooden flooring , he came over after she had picked herself up and stated that there was no water on the floor so she couldn't sue, the poor girl didn't even think about that!

The food is distinctly average considering the price!!, personally I could have done a better job.
DO NOT GO HERE!!

Ive been to the cameo a few times and had good experiences every time. Went there last week and got an amazing deal. Got 2 meals for £10, great size and very tasty. Also had deal on for 2 cocktails for £5 which was great.

It has a lovely atmosphere, great decor, and the staff are fine. Our meal came out fairly quickly even though it was busy. I would recommend my friends to come here.

Great value for money!!! Will probably go back next week for the same deals!

I have visited the cameo on a couple of occasions now and have always had a nice time. Ive found the staff to be very friendly and helpful and there is always a good atmosphere. The food is decent enough pub grub and there was a quiz on when I was there which seemed very popular.

sunday lunch. ordered chicken wraps and potato and leek soup.
the soup was good with fresh bread and butter and the wraps were tasty, if a little dry, came with wedges (mccain i think) and salad.
Service was poor, they didn't seem interested in clearing any tables and a few people were getting annoyed, we just left and payed at the bar.
food = ok/good
service =poor

Dined there a few nights ago before going to the cinema at Ocean Terminal. I've eaten here before and it's always been OK pub food type fare. This time around I thought I'd try something different and ordered the salmon fillet - not a good idea! The salmon was served raw in the middle. When I mentioned this to the staff, they very quickly returned it to the kitchen to correct the situation. However, the salmon was returned to my table for a second time very quickly - and while it was better - it was STILL raw in the very center and inedible. The chefs seemed more interested in having a fag outside than food hygiene standards - I am not planning on dining there again.

The staff here are very rude and couldn't care less about customer service.
Their behaviour was unbelievable.......bar/waiting staff could only get away with this poor poor attitude if management allowed it. I was DISGUSTED !!! NEVER GOING BACK!!!

The Cameo in Leith - great food and nice beer! An overall very pleasant experience!

RUBBISH! Was so upset about the day I had at the Cameo!

We went for food and drinks.. we ordered a hoy choc and a latte.. they were both cold we never got our food?!

We went to the bar to complain they didnt seem that bothered and keept asking me who I ordered food from when I pointed that person out... she said she couldnt remember taking my order?!?

When I said look forget it we have waited long enough how much for the hot choc and the latte.. they charged me 8 pounds?!??! I was like for what?!

Turns out we ordered a strong latte which cost 4.75!!! Umm no it was a cold week coffee made from a cheap nasty machine! It doesnt even cost that much for a coffee in Harvey Nicks!

I found the staff to be rude!! Unhelpful and I will not be going back to this dump!
