Urban Angel, 121 Hanover Street, EH2 1DJ, Edinburgh

I went here for lunch with my sister and her partner as I heard that it was good for vegetarian options. We luckily managed to get a table as I know it can be very busy for lunches. They menu can be a bit limited but has the usual paninis, wraps, burgers, salads etc which you would expect from an in town place. My main complaint with Urban Angel is the cost of the meals you get. Both myself and my sister has a panini and we were charged £7/8 for it when it came with no sides, her boyfriend had a burger and I could tell by the look on his face that he was not impressed by the size of it! The food was good but just with the amount you are paying you would expect more or would be able to get more locally.

Fairly quirky layout. The food, whilst not amazing, is pretty good. If you're in this part of town and need a snack, it's got what you need.

Urban Angel is nicely layed out little restaurant - light and airy with big tables and attractive displays of food. The ethos is rooted firmly in organic, local and sustainable reflected in their branding and across the menu. In reality, the branding is probably the strongest aspect of Urban Angel, and unfortunately on a recent visit the food failed to really excite. Don't get me wrong, it's good solid stuff - reasonably well executed and presented. The main problem is the flavours are a little lacklustre. We over-ordered as usual, being attracted by the small bites section of the menu. The star of the show was actually a lentil salad which came as part of a mixed salad bowl, it was fresh, sweet & lively and completely addictive. Also good was the very generous plate of good home-made bread, oil and olives.

Sadly, the rest was all fairly dull. Beetroot 'gravadlax' looked fantastic: big bright purple and orange cuts of cured salmon. The flavour, however was quite muted - bordering on non-existant. How this is preferable to normal gravadlax is unclear. Give me some dill!

A fishcake suffered from the age-old dilemma of too much potato/not enough fish and was really just a large, vaguely fishy potato cake. It's accompanying basil mayo, while being suitably green, tasted of nothing but standard mayo. The other salads in the above selection suffered by comparison, and were pretty dull and a bit too 'beany'.

Overall then, a mixed bag - not expensive at all, but nothing mind blowing.


Later in the day we had dessert at the other location and it was rather nice

Lovely setting and my favourite place to go for Sunday lunch, I love going out for Sunday lunch and it seems like too many places cannot be bothered. This place goes like a fair and on Sunday lunch they seem to operate a no bookings policy, not waited more than 10 minutes yet so be patient.

Food is good, service is good, setting makes it better (despite the easyjet inspired gents loo!), not sure why but I like this place alot.

This place is fantastic, great menu, fabulous presentation, and the food tastes great! I think the layout is cosy but not too oppressive. This is one of the better restaurants in Edinburgh in my opinion!

I ate here with a friend a couple of Saturdays ago. It was a nice day so we'd been hoping to sit outside. Unsurprisingly the few tables the have outside were taken. We didn't have much more luck inside, however - the main seating area was full. We were hungry and had heard good things about Urban Angel so decided to sit at one of a couple of tables they have in front of the service counter. This turned out to be a poor decision as the waiting staff didn't seem to pay any attention to this area and we could quite poor, slow service.

The food was very good though, and I'll probably go back - but only if I can get a proper table. I had the pasta dish of the day and my friend had a burger. I had the large portion of pasta which was a bit much for a light lunch. I also thought it was a little bit pricey for what it was. But I don't think I would have minded so much if we'd been sitting in the main restaurant area.
