NileGuide Expert tip:
Avoid Sundays as the bar gets very crowded and noisy. Be prepared for some slightly pretentious folks. Still, the food is delicious, particularly the brunches!
Montpelier Bar and Brasserie in Bruntsfield is a stylish and dynamic restaurant and bar. The restaurant recently revamped its image adding - in their own words - "a cluster of gigantic Chesterfield sofas, some luxurious tub velvet chairs (you might want to cancel any afternoon appointments prior to taking a pew in one of these fellows) and chic floral designs on the walls."
Offering a range of foods from cheese boards to monkfish, the day and evening menus are delicious and for the most reasonably priced. It is a local favorite and usually crowded during most week nights, particularly on Sundays. Some patrons have complained that the music is too loud, the service too slow and the diners too pretentious. Judge for yourself!
