Contemporary European
This chic little bistro - with its designer wallpaper, banquette seating and rough stone walls – has an intimate, cosmopolitan vibe, and is popular with a discreet and sophisticated creative crowd. The modern European menu is guaranteed to impress, we love the roast duck breast with fresh raspberries and Drambuie; lamb loin and haggis wrapped in puff pastry & coated in cracked pepper sauce; and the sea bass cooked en papillote with hot ginger and lemongrass prawns. Ideal for stylish working lunches, and informal evening meals, Iris also has an extensive wine list and a growing selection of beers and craft ales.

    Overall really enjoyed our meal at the iris. Food and wine was excellent as was the service. Only very small gripe was were sat right at the door at a quite cramped table and when other customers would come in or go out we had to keep closing the sticking door behind them. Other than this it was a very nice meal and evening. Would eat here again.

    I visited Iris with my family - Mother Sister and Brother in Law. Staff were friendly and we were seated straight away even though we were early. Nice quiet atmosphere with soft lighting. Food was delicious - Rib eye steak in particular was fab. Definitely worth a second visit.

    We were looking for a restaurant with good food and service. We couldn’t have chosen better. The food was absolutely delicious with nothing processed about it. The service was first class and it was good value for money. Would love to go back if we visit Edinburgh again.
