Although we love dogs they are not allowed in the restaurant.
Hours shown are last food orders. We have both bookable tables and a dedicated walkin guests section. We operate a waiting list for walk in guests if full.

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 in either bar next door and return.

Just off the Castle
