Lunch on Saturday
22/03/2010 by Walbro
Howies is fast becoming a favourite of mine. I have never been disappointed with the quality of food which is exceptionally good value - two courses for £6.99 and you can choose to have desert as part of the two courses unlike most restaurants who insist on a starter and main. Our party of 4 all enjoyed their meal which was tasty as well as beautifully presented. The service was also good despite the place being full.Report this

Discovered this lovely restaurant next to our hotel on a recent trip to Edinburgh. We took advantage of an offer they had running sun-thurs of 2 courses and a glass of wine for £15, the food was delicious the service excellent and the surroundings lovely would definitely recommendReport this

This place is living old reputations when thier first restaurants might have been ok. The service was grumpy, inefficient and could not care less basically. Wake up. The food was only basic lunch order, but it was greasy and overpriced. The meat was fatty and poor quality. The standard of cooking is a joke and i wonder how they can get away with it. Dont bother.Report this
not so bad

My experience of eating at Howies was during a Xmas lunch, where I appreciate it is a busy time of the year, but for me the food all tasted ready made and re-heated. It was unfortunate that it did not live up to the hype. Will I try again with so many to choose from in Edinburgh? I honestly can not say.Report this

Sleek, dependable, contemporary and a wee bit Scottish.

Don't be put off by the fact that Howies is a chain. Neither does it serve fast food, nor is it overly formulaic. Instead it's success is based on local restaurants that have proved themselves among discerning local diners for a long time, allowing it to add branches throughout Edinburgh and more widely in Scotland. All serve contemporary food, sometimes with a bit of a Scottish flavour, using locally bought produce and at set meal prices which help avoid runaway costs: two courses go for £18 (£14 Mon–Thurs before 7.30pm; three for £20). The one I ate in was in Edinburgh's Bruntsfield where the sleek minimalist wood and a high-ceilinged whitewashed walls with traditional cornices had much the same flavour as the. There's nothing mind-blowingly experimental here, rather the food concentrates on executing traditional dishes with flair. Presentation is spot on with every dish. The menu changes monthly and according to season, so perhaps its of limited use to pick on any particular dishes. Suffice to say though that the sweet potato soup or the balls of goats cheese drizzled with raspberry compote both formed an excellent way to start a meal. Mains included a good tangy nutloaf and an excellent roast chicken with creamy mash and accompanied with a strange but surprisingly delicious large tomato stuffed with olives and capsicum. Both came with tasty salads. Howies describes its banoffee pie as infamous, so clearly that was one dessert that had to be tried. In the event it was great, a lightly whipped topping, burying some real bananery zing, but thankfully not the treacly base that so often weighs the dessert down. Any one of the restaurants can get busy with groups, so it's as well to call ahead: 0131 556 5766.Report this
