Generally I am not a fan of themed bars; however on hearing about this one and the vast menu of white Russians we had to make a trip to see it! With The Big Lebowski playing in the background we enjoyed our open sandwiches (macaroni cheese - recommended!) but more importantly; the white Russians. All drinks are named after characters/moments... More

Way better than the fast food places and in my opinion better than GBK, Byron etc. They do other food, but you can't go wrong with their burgers, some fries and a few cold beers. Always pretty busy and a decent buzz. Friendly waiting staff too.

If you like burgers, then this is the spot for you! At our table of four Irish girls we ordered, The Lebowski's Burger with cheese, The Big Lebowski, One For The Veggies and The Pulled Porker. We also ordered mac & cheese, hot chicken wings and cabbage coleslaw. Everything really was so flavorsome. We couldn't finish everything off and didn't... More

After moving jobs to an office opposite to Lebowskis in October last year, I was happy to hear of the guys using this bar for lunch and with the £5 lunch deal consisting of a sandwich/salad with chips/soup and a drink it really felt too good to be true. Upon my first visit I waited quite a while for my... More

Hi Dmckenzie82, Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry to hear of your bad experiences here at Lebowskis and are disappointed by the fact that it has happened more than once. You are of course correct to find it strange that you were given the same excuse on two occasions, and there is no excuse for the service... More

My partner and I went here after a meal out for celebratory engagement drinks. Rory was great at serving up as flamboyant White Russians as he could think of. He was also great for me as I'm lactose intolerant and made a point of asking what I could have. Loved our night there. Great job from Rory!

If your a fan of white Russians then you need to try this place. They have like 40 of them it's really cool. It's a nice place inside, very woody with the style and furniture which I love. It's also a movie themed bar so I'm there. Love it

Busy, loud, great food, great music, great drinks. We ate here simply because it was directly beneath the apartment where we were staying but we were very pleasantly surprised. So good we dropped in again before bed fir a couple of nightcaps!

We enjoyed the atmosphere at this bar a lot. A friendly welcome and nice ambience was a great start. They have an impressive white russian menu as you would expect, and the Big Lebowski is on repeat in the background. I enjoyed it greatly but don't head here just for the Lebowski stuff as they could really do a lot... More

Great night out in Lebowskis with my work colleagues, great selection of beers and a decent atmosphere. Staff very helpful, although would have to say that the toilets while OK could do with a bit of an upgrade.

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.
