Although they were under staffed as someone had called in sick the staff were still very pleasant under pressure. There was a bit of a wait for the food but was well worth the wait. The burgers are amazing, cocktails were also great and loved their ranch sauce it's definitely worth a try.

Really disappointed. Not even soya milk for coffee. Overpriced vegetable salad or mini portion of 'chips' at £3. It's 2016, I'm surprised how vegan un-friendly this place was.

I had a Birthday night out here a few years ago when I lived in Edinburgh and delighted to say it's still a great bar to visit. The staff were exceptional and the choice of drink and snacks perfect to what we were looking for. Good value, accommodating, clean and stylish. A must visit!

I booked the back room of Sygn for a work party of 36 with the Feast menu. The staff were amazing from the moment we started to arrange the booking, making sure we got the most out of our budget, and taking care over those with food allergies in our group. When we arrived the room was set up with... More

Sygn is a busy very buzzy restaurant. Lots of very different dishes. Went for lunch with a group of friends before the rugby. Although there was eight of us our waiter did not write anything down when we ordered, always makes me worry, but he got everything spot on! Some great starters, especially the haggis balls with chilli dipping sauce.... More

Burgers are pink and so so so good. Boozy cocktails are even better. Big up the dirty south it's unreal.

A small cozy place. We had a room to our selves with a ping pong table. It was great fun, however, it got a bit too crowded towards the end. Drinks are a bit at the higher side. Good experience, not sure if I'll go there again though

First visit to Sygn on Saturday with family. Delicious 'Black' burger!! I thought the burgers were burnt when they came out, but in the spirit of Halloween they were black dyed with squid ink and charcoal. They were so delicious, the staff were fantastic. We had an 'itison' voucher for four, but hubby was ill so just the three of... More

Cocktail bar of the year 2015 with an equally as good food offering with fantastic burgers and pizza. Friday and Saturday night we dim down the lights and the DJ turns up the music.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
