We had a great time at Safari Lounge. It seemed like it was local pub for the hood. We ate in their dining room which is separate. The decor was fun and funky. Chef and our server had a very “can do” attitude adapting the dish to accommodate my celiac and dairy allergy. We both had great meals. Also, I highly recommend their Classic Margarita!

Food and service was amazing. Especially that I could eat most food on the menu being coeliac. The only thing to change would be to make the room in back a lot brighter and maybe slightly bigger tables. 10 out of 10 for our visit.

Fantastic as always! Probably my go to in Edinburgh for mums&dads who have their children in tow. Without a fail, I feel welcome there whether it's looking for safe breastfeeding space, for sth to eat while having an enthusiastic toddler with me or as this time for drinks&food with friends and 3 wildish children. The box with toys and patience (which can't be expected or taken for granted as youngs kids are not making things easy for the waiting staff) was an absolute cherry on the cake. Food&drinks (cocktails!!) Are top notch too. I'm very grateful and thank you all.

Fantastic staff, service and beer. My ice cream was delicious. My own reservation is my choice od battered fish tacos…there wasn’t enough and maybe some coleslaw or salad on the side (or even a few chips) would be good. (Everyone else in my party was delighted with their food choices.) Thank you!

Had a great time on Sunday afternoon, we booked the back room for a birthday as it was a dedicated space that we and our kids could relax in, without worrying that we were disturbing the other patrons. The guys were super helpful, even pulled out a box of toys to play with and the food was ace. Thanks for making my Birthday a good one. S.x

So good to be back at the Safari Lounge! Always something new and interesting on the drinks list. And I love that the whole menu is gluten free. Service was impeccable too.

Overall great night. Felt Covid safe. Great music playing too. Tacos were great. Vegan dessert option would have been nice as good main selection.
