Whiski Bar & Restaurant
Scottish food and drink on one of the city’s most historic streets.
If you happen to be stumbling around the Old Town looking for a bite to eat, Whiski is an easy option for quick food. Although it’s split between bar and restaurant, no bookings are taken and the prompt staff turn tables over pretty quickly. They're proud of their Scottish roots, and the menu is full of traditional, no-nonsense dishes such as Cullen skink, smoked mackerel pâté, and steak and ale pie. Fishcakes lack much flavour beneath the breadcrumbs, and the serving of spicy tiger prawns, while succulent and sweet, is somehow dwarfed by its tiny bowl. The ribeye steak is nicely presented and accompanied by a generous helping of chips, roast vine tomatoes and mixed leaf salad. However, their signature dish, the haggis tower, is a disconcertingly monotone construction, with a couple of thin oatcakes protruding from the stack at odd angles. In contrast, the bar is colourful, and stocked with over 300 whiskies, a good selection of beers, and hosts live music every night. But you'll pay for the privilege of its central location.
