Ask any local what the most hip and happening eaterie in Edinburgh is and Tigerlily ranks amongst the top. So being in town for a few days, it was a must on my places to eat list. The visit was certainly a good choice and the sparkly and lively ambience was alluring from the start. The interiors are trendily sleek with a touch of sophistication thrown in for good measure. This is not one of those thrown together in a day with MDF establishments, but a restaurant with true style and substance. Most importantly it shows in the food too.
Having joined my fellow diners a little later, I jumped straight into the mains and was enticed by the specials as informed by our helpful waiter. The main, pan friend sea bass served with saffron and chorizo mash and salsa verde, sounded like a dish with enough ingredients to either over-complicate or work sublimely. Luckily for me and my stomach, it was balanced and cooked with skill and each part of the dish worked in unison with the other. A gamble well paid off.
Desserts are also a plenty for those with a sweet tooth and the generously portioned strawberry cheesecake (which came recommended) certainly went down a treat not only with myself but also fellow diners. Service was of a good standard and though lacking at certain times (due to the sheer traffic), managed to sustain a respectable level.
Definitely a must for visitors of the bonnie city, especially those accustomed to the London standard.
