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 takes you up to Edinburgh Castle and onto the Royal Mile.

Makars Mound is a popular wee restaurant and to keep the vibrant fun atmosphere we only take bookings at these times
Lunch times before 13:15
Evenings before 17:30

Outside these times we operate a buzzer pager system, FOR ALL TABLES that allows you to wait in either of the bars next door and get called when ready. So you will not be cold or thirsty waiting! Just don't wander off too far out of range.

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, values and team. Makars West End is only a brisk 11min walk along Princes St.
