Angels with Bagpipes, Edinburgh

On a sunny autumn day I was wandering around Edinburgh's Old Town, doing some shopping and enjoying the quietness that always follows the hectic August and Fringe Festival.
I then took myself for a lunch to Angels with Bagpipes, new addition to Royal Mile's restaurants. Owned by Marina Crolla from the Valvona&Crolla family it offers a modern Scottish menu with an Italian twist.
For my main I ordered 'AWB Fish and Chips with pea puree and saffron aioli', steaming hot fish in a light, crispy batter presented in a quite funky way.
My dessert 'AWB Chocolate mousse, puff candy and Irn Bru sorbet' was a beautiful combination of flavours: rich chocolate alongside refreshing, cold sorbet... and puff candy in the middle. Who could resist that?
 I was seated at the front, next to the bar and later on had a peek of the rest of the place and the same gorgeous, elegant theme continues throughout the restaurant.
 Now I'm looking forward to bring Mr Lovable here and treat ourselves to a dinner!
 quite posh, in a not scary way

prompt, charming waiters

I used to work with two of their chefs!

  1. Hi Mai

    I've just found your blog. It's great. I'll be checking in regularly now for places to try.

    I blog too and also went to Angels with Bagpipes and really loved it! Scallops were amazing. I'm sure you and Mr Loveable will enjoy when you return for dinner.
