Makars Mound (Bank St)

Situated in the heart of Edinburgh's historic old town,
With stunning vistas over the city and Forth.
We are running restricted hours due to Government restrictions.
We are open 21st to 23rd Dec between 12-15:30 walk ins and bookings.
We are planning to open 28th Dec to 2nd Jan between 12 and 16:00 for walk ins and bookings.

The Makars Mash Bar is known as "Edinburghs little Gem". Since 2015 we have been trail blazing our reputation and won TripAdvisor Casual Restaurant of the year for the past 3 years!!! We are delighted to be open again and operating in a safe but friendly environment.

Our Mound location connects Edinburgh's Old and New Towns, a short walk from the Castle, Waverley train station and most of the central hotels. Our restaurant is blessed with incredible views over the city. We have a heated terrace within Makar's Court and it's 17th century buildings (that were once home to Robbie Burns himself!).

Makars is a popular wee restaurant. We have tables allocated for both bookings and WALK-INS. All bookings MUST be made through our website so we can collect your details accurately. If you do not see availability then we have tables available for walk-in and outside (weather/season dependant). If full then we operate a socially safe waiting system where you get an allotted time. This allows you to wait safely in either bar next door and return.

Just off the Castle

Beautiful 17thC architecture
