I recently went to Le Monde for dinner as it was a friends birthday night out. The food is not very high quality I would describe it as Weatherspoons quality but 3 times the price. However I feel that the decor and atmosphere is why you would go. You can get some great snaps as it is a pretty venue. The drinks are reasonably priced considering the George Street location. I would only ever eat there again if it was the decision of somebody else again!The staff are friendly but the a lot of the clientele are questionable. For example I met a group of construction workers who were dressed to the nines in suits and brogues only to go for drinks.I am not a fan of pretentious behaviour and your not going to find the real deal in here. I personally prefer a more relaxed venue where the customers are not mutton dressed as lamb! Young professionals like myself are more inclined to go somewhere that is more diverse, has good quality food and is more relaxed. If you are a tourist to Edinburgh it is worth a visit!

Classy restaurant and bar that is one of the busiest nightspots in Edinburgh at the weekends. They have a fantastic range of drinks available with loads of cocktails, spirits and even some local craft beer as well. Their whisky collection is decent which surprised me. They do breakfast, lunch and dinner in the restaurant. I can’t speak about their lunch or dinner but their breakfast is ok. Not an amazing selection on offer, all very standard and run-of-the-mill. Very nice surroundings though for dining but at weekends it will get very busy early so if you want a table you will have to phone up to reserve. The place is quite relaxed during the day but gets a lot more lively as the night goes on. And later it is good laugh if you’re there with a group and have a table. However it’s your typical George Street venue with cheesy music, pretentious (then later drunk) people and very expensive drinks. If that’s your thing then you’ll like the place.

went to both a hen do and a christmas party here and both managed to be a complete and utter disappointment. not only was the food below par and the service slow and unfriendly, (but having booked months in advance!!) they did not have enough seats for everyone in our party. no one informed us the 'entertainment' had started and fed chart music into the side room we were stuffed in without even consider playing the live music into the room. complaints were made after the event and i believe they received no response.

I've stayed here 5 times, 4 out of these 5 times I've been treated like a VIP by the staff. No issue has ever too small and the cocktails and food have always been far better than I would have expected them to. Some of the rooms could do with a bit of a touch up, but these don't detract from the quality of the stay we had. All the facilities worked and the rooms look great. We spent an evening in the Dirty Martini piano bar and the entertainment was excellent. The table service for cocktails and drinks were regular and you didn't feel pressured to order if you just wanted to relax.

A very trendy hotel, which is certainly not a bad thing. A great hotel for couples looking for excellent nightlife and superb nearby shopping.

Much like Tigerlily, from what I have experienced, the drinks are great and the atmosphere is OK. I have given Le Monde 'the benefit of the doubt' many times, but it's never gotten better (for me). The last time was there, the only reason it was better is because I was with a former employee who had colleague discount. If you enjoy a cocktail with little atmosphere on a Saturday night - pay a visit.

Negatives: drinks are very expensive, and the food service is very slow. I suspect the service failings were due more to management rather than waiting staff. The earpieces the waiting staff use to communicate with the kitchen are hilarious - the service is still slow, and all they do is prevent the staff from hearing customers when they want attention, so the customer has to yell! Facepalm. Positives: good food, decent selection, very nice atmosphere in the outside conservatory-type room (early September). The waiting staff were at least polite and apologetic.

I've never actually stayed in the hotel but I pop into the bar from time to time. This is a typical George Street bar - really pretty to look at but super expensive for basic drinks. The place is gorgeous. Massive chairs to sink into whilst next to a nice fire. Worth a visit!
