REVIEW – The Living Room For Lunch


The Living Room is George Street is part of a national chain, but the venue in Edinburgh is beautiful.  They have a large dining room through the back past the bar, live music in the evenings (weekends) and a selection of tables and curved booths to sit at.

I used my List Card here, but I have dined in the Living Room on many occasions and find the food of good quality and prices reasonable for George Street / centre of town.

My friend ordered the goat’s cheese and red pepper ravioli with baby mozzarella and roquette pesto at £9.95.

 I did think that for a main pasta it was a little on the small side, but my dining partner said it was cooked to perfection and was flavoursome.  I ordered grilled chicken with emmental cheese, tomato relish, coleslaw and chips at £9.75.

Excuse the photo, but the light in the Living room, even at lunchtime is low level.  The chicken was beautifully tender and the emmental complimented it well.  The chips were hand cooked and seasoned to perfection and the coleslaw and relish were tasty.

I also had sticky toffee pudding with farmhouse ice cream at £5.25 and my friend had the creme brulee with sweetened raspberries at £4.95 but we got stuck into them so quickly, I forgot to take a photo !  They were both delicious.

Service was impeccable – my only criticism was that the main restaurant was air conditioned and was slightly cool considering it was t-shirt weather outside.  I didn’t have a jacket with me, so instead of lingering with an after lunch drink, we moved elsewhere.  I imagine it would be very welcome on a busy Saturday night though !


Suitable for disabled ?   There is a step up in to the Living room and separate disabled bathrooms  :)
