The Mound connects Edinburgh's Old and New towns, a short walk from Waverley train station and most of the central hotels. Makars Mound is blessed with incredible views, especially at sunsets. We have a heated terrace within Makar's Court and it's 17th century buildings, that were once home to Robbie Burns. A 2 minute stroll will take you up to Edinburgh Castle and onto the Royal Mile.

Makars Mound is a popular little restaurant where we only take very limited bookings. This keeps our restaurant vibrant, with a warm glowing ambiance and buzz. During the winter months, for the few times that we are full, then we have a pager buzzer system. You can wait in either of the bars next door and get called when ready. So you will not be cold or be thirsty waiting! Just don't wander off too far out of range.

Makars Mound can host tables upto 8 people. If you are a larger party please Email Us as our Makars West End can host groups upto 78 people and has the same great food and team.

No matter what your size of group we would love to host you and we do appreciate that some of our guests want the certainty of a booked table. This is why we opened our larger Makars West End restaurant which has the same fantastic food, prices and team. Our West End site also has private group dinning facilities. Makars West End is only a brisk 11min walk along Princes St and you can book from this site.
