3.5 from craig777 (100%) on June 3rd, 2009 (9 years ago)

The New York Steam Packet, 31 Rose Street Lane North, EH2 2NP, Edinburgh

I went here last night for a friends birthday and had a brilliant time. I have actually been meaning to go for a while but as it isnt open on Sunday, when I have been trying to use it for a certain dinner I havent managed to go.

We had a table of 9 of us and here there is a set menu for £15.99 a head. Starters tend to be potato skins, pate, soup and mussels (unfortunately they didnt have any mussels left). I had the potato skins which were very good. They came iwth a generous helping of salad. Other friends had the pate which they were slightly dissappointed with as felt it could have been better given the size of the restaurant.

For mains you have a selection of steak (£2.50 surcharge), burgers, salmon and vegetable enchilladas. I had the burger which although was very small very good, it comes with again a good helping of salad and chips so it is actually the perfect sized portion.

We didnt end up having pudding as we had a birthday cake so we just had teas and coffees.

The joy of this place is that its BYO and they only charge £1 corkage for wine and 50p for beers. Out total bill came to £184 (service included) so we ended up paying a little over £20 each of a 3 course meal and plenty of wine!

The restaurant is tiny but its great for a big party of people going out for dinner. Think it may be a slightly different night if you are a table of 2 in amongst 2 big parties though.

They do a really cheap set menu. The steak is good and worth paying the couple of quid extra for. Starter and desserts are nothing special. Restaurant is very hard to find - up an alley off one of the lanes off Rose Street.

As it's a cheap and cheerful kind of place, you book a table for a predefined time block and need to vacate the table by a certain time. Not a problem, so long as you know.

Edit: Additional to below Review

Recently arranged large group dinner here and it's also under new management since my last review.

This place does the basics tremendously well and having been in a couple of times recently I can say with absolute certainty that it's well worth a visit. Perfect pre-night out grub.

Double burgers might be a good idea though as the regular burger is a bit small. Also the dime bar dessert is top notch and has to be tried.


Been here twice for work nights out. BYOB so very handy. Tiny place mind you. I doubt it could fit more than 22 people. good steaks, good burgers,

It's down an alley behind George St. so it does look ropey from the outside but it is a charming wee spot with lots of funky titanic etc memorabilia on the walls.

Entertaining place with good humoured staff. They've seen it all so you can be a bit rowdy if the place is empty.

Like it, will go again.

I totally agree with Andy's review above, the set menu is really good value but the restaurant is very small so you would need to book in advance. It is also up a very narrow spirally type staircase which is not ideal for those not fully mobile or fully sober!

I enjoyed the food and it was certainly good value, the menu is not very varied - just a few dishes, but for about £15 per head for 2 courses who is complaining & surely everyone likes steak. Although be warned, unlike most places who seem to find judging when a steak is cooked difficult, my boyfriend asked for his rare and it was so rare it was almost still a cow - it is the first time I have known him order rare and send it back to be cooked for longer!
