3.5 from craig777 (100%) on August 25th, 2009 (5 years ago)

Amicus Apple, 17 Frederick Street, EH2 2EY, Edinburgh

I went here for dinner last night with a friend and I have to say was very impressed. We were between here and Element but on looking at the menus we saw more that took our fancy on this menu. I went for the fish of the day special - which was sea bass on a potato and French bean salad and my friend went for the salmon with mashed potato and crème fraiche. Both were £8.95. The sea bass was very good - the portions aren’t too big but adequate enough for dinner - I would have preferred a bit more vegetable to be honest. The service staff were overly tentative and we were asked several times if we were ok by different staff which was a bit annoying but we were one of the only tables in the back part of the restaurant.

My only complaint was that we were charged for a bottle of wine which we didn’t have - we both weren’t drinking. The waiting staff took it off but when we went up to the bar to pay by card we were again questioned as to whether we had had a bottle of wine. This was the only downer on the night as we felt they thought we were lying. But I would recommend this place and with their 2-1 cocktails 5-9 most days it is definitely worth a visit!

I went to Amicus Apple for lunch on Saturday with a friend. I booked through this website using Top Table which was quick and convenient. ;)

I thoroughly enjoyed my meal at AA. The service was excellent, very friendly and quick. I’m glad we booked because it seemed quite busy, lots of Saturday shoppers stopping by for food.

We both had a couple of cocktails – one of them the mango crush which was amazing!!! For food we opted for the foccacia with different dips, humous, pesto, olive oil – the bread was fresh and warm still and the dips were obviously all home made and excellent.

For our main, we both had sandwiches – I had cheese and pickle on granary bread which was very good and my colleague had a BLT which she assured me was also excellent! The only down side was the side order of homemade coleslaw: it tasted like mayonnaise and not much else!

The meal including the 2 lots of cocktails we had came to £37 – it was really good and I would recommend it for lunch.

If you like this, try Sygn bar at the West end, next to Indigo Yard (their cocktails are just as good!)

I ate here after I saw an offer on 5pm.com (sorry to swear!)

It is more of a bar than a restaurant but I was pleasantly surprised as the food was very good and the staff were efficient (as well as easy on the eye - in fact, everyone that drinks in the establishment are noticeably good looking).

The dining area is really small, with only 10 or so tables, but if you want to eat somewhere central with a queiter and more intimate atmosphere Amicus Apple is a good choice.

This is across the road from Millets where the Frederick st bar used to be. Also it's below Boudiche for those of you who fancy some lingerie shopping. Mobbed in the evenings - unless you want to eat dinner in a drunken bar - it's only good for lunch.

Popped in here twice recently for lunch as the filling station was mobbed (! - I like their pizza). So far I've had the burger, sausage and mash and sampled a pal's steak sandwich. Always been around £20 for grub/beer. Always been tasty and enjoyable lunch fare. Hard to go wrong really.

Bad bits: Lack of atmos - guaranteed seats I suppose.

It's right around the corner from my work so I'll definitely be going again - no complaints. Safe enough for what it is.

Also it's pretty prompt. I've never been late back to work after eating there.

2.5 from naomi (35%) on October 20th, 2007 (6 years ago)

Amicus Apple, 17 Frederick Street, EH2 2EY, Edinburgh

Went here for lunch a week or so ago. The place lacks in atmosphere I think. We were not there for a full lunch, just a main and some wine. My roasted salmon was roasted a little too well, tangy sauce served with it was just okay. The fillet itself was quite a small portion and with a price tag of around £7-8 for that one dish, I would expect more... however my friend ordered the risotto which looked much more appetising and she said tasty really good - more generous portion which she did not finish. Service was okay, I have had worse. I guess I ordered wrong... so in summary fine for a quick lunch if you are in a hurry.

went to Amicus Apple for a birthday dinner a couple of months back now. Food was surprisingly good and the cocktails were something else. Jack Daniels and apple juice - strange but nice. The only let down and a big one and that was the service - 30 minutes for our starters and only 4 of the 6 arrived. Waitress disappeared for 15 minutes and eventually managed to flag her down, she made no apologies for the mistake and brought out the starter with the main courses. Not the best but I think I'd be prepared to give this place a second chance if only for the cocktails.

Myself and the girls all love Amicus Apple for their amazing cocktails and lovely service. However it can take a long time for lunch to arrive when you're needing to get back to the office on time - but when the ambience is so nice it's hard to work up the momentum to leave!

Awful... waited 2 hours for main course when I had my burger it was pink... there was 18 of us (no one liked it) and we gave 2 months' notice and they still could not get it right... and when we complained... the manager was the most ignorant person (notice I did not say man!!!) I have ever met in my life... Don't waste your money going there!!!

Went in for lunch, food was great, service wasn't far behind, also really good for a few drinks in evening... would suggest you pay them a visit! I've never been disappointed yet, which is rare!

Very smart decor and very nice bar overall. Good cocktails. only problem: no atmosphere whatsoever! Bar staff were very pretentious, and just made it a bit uncomfortable. I felt as though you need to be a regular to be accepted. Not a very good experience.
