Candy Kitchen and Bar, 113–115 George Street, EH2 4JN, Edinburgh

I went to Candy Bar last night with some friends as in June and July they have a 2-1 voucher for main meals. It was the first time I have been in since it has been renovated and it looked good inside. We went early (as they have drinks promotions on from 5-8pm) and eat and drank till about 8pm. The food was actually very good we all had salads but there is a very good selection of meals available and they are slightly different from usual fayre.

Price wise salads are between £7-9, mains are all between £8-10 and any sides ordered £2-3 so it was good value.

We had some pitchers of cocktails which in happy hour are reduced from £17 to £12 so a bargain.

My only complaint would be that the staff arent overly friendly and it seems they all just hand out there whether they are working or not. We had to wait a while for drinks - when bar staff were just seen to be chatting at the bar. But apart from that was a good night and good value.

Candy Kitchen and Bar, 113–115 George Street, EH2 4JN, Edinburgh

I went to the candy bar with a group of 4 friends last night. I have been for drinks there on several occasions but last night I decided to take advantage of a 2 4 1 on main courses offer I had received and try out the food.

The staff, as with most Montpelier pubs, were excellent: very attentive without being overly so. The prices even before our discount were very VERY reasonable - main course averaging about £7. The only problem I had was that they had run out of my first 3 choices on the menu... chicken fajitas, beef fajitas, tomato and halloumi cheese salad... so I settled for vegetable fajitas - which were pretty scrummy and fresh. The guacamole was the best I have had in a long time. (I do like my guacamole!) One of my friends went for the battered haddock and it looked fantastic and apparently tasted even better. I pinched a couple of the 'chunky' chips and they were jolly good too.

I would definitely recommend Candy Bar for a light bite. Quality food at a very very reasonable price.

This place is actually quite reasonable considering it's location on George Street. All meals on the menu are £5 or less. I had the steak sandwich which was tasty. The meat wasn't too tough and the chips that came with it were cooked well. My partner had a breakfast which wasn't greasy in the slightest.

We chose to sit outside but at the bottom of the basement steps. The service was good and when it looked like rain, the waiter pulled over a covering to stop us from getting wet (rather than waiting for us to get a bit soggy before doing so).

The reasonable price and decent service will certainly tempt me to go back again.

Candy Bar has recently been given a refurb of lime green and cream - sounds naff and it looks cr*p too.

I went here on Sunday with a friend for lunch mainly because it was central and convenient; I won't do so again as I left disappointed.

I went for the veggie breakfast for £7.50 which was fine but it was dripping with oil - I am aware that cooked breakfasts aren't always the healthy option but this was horribly fatty.

My friend opted for the parma ham salad (only to be told 5 minutes later there was no parma ham left...) it arrived with a parma substitute but the salad looked bland.

We were actually served by my friend who is a waitress there so I can't really fault the service (a little biased I know!)

However, there were about 5 staff on and they were all chatting by the till which, even though the restaurant was quiet, looked very unprofessional.

Our bill was just shy of £20 with two mains and two drinks - not exactly expensive but I still doubt that I will return.

Overall, a poor refurb and even poorer food.

Candy Kitchen and Bar, 113–115 George Street, EH2 4JN, Edinburgh

Went to the Candy Bar on Sat night for the first time in years - always thought it was over priced when it opened - but I was VERY pleasantly surprised!

The food was very good and the price was great. And the service - a tad slow to start with, but great afterwards.

Both of us had fajitas, and we're more than happy with our selection - meat and veg. Along with the 2 starters we had between us, we were pretty stuffed! But we left room for a dessert each anyway!

The price of the drinks was pretty good too - and a lot better than they had been a few years ago.

The only disappointment was the size of the Mars Bar cheesecake - although it tasted very nice, the size was quite small for the price tag.

However, all-in-all, the meal was nice, and I would be convinced to go back again.
