On entering Cosmo you will be instantly wooed by an opulent interior of dark red and elegant regency features. Firstly, saunter up to the cocktail bar, then nonchalantly order something with a huge canopy jutting out of it and reflect on what a sophisticated, stylish type you are. Now you are ready to move to your table and fully appreciate your luxurious surroundings. The fresh fish dishes are particularly noteworthy, amongst a strong Italian menu. Cosmo has been satisfying and gently pampering guests for nearly thirty years now, so it knows what it's about.
The photos online made it seem like a cute boutique hotel. It was not.
My room was very small, very grey and not very clean. The bed was hard as a rock. I spent the first night there then requested a room upgrade (I was willing to pay more). I was told I was already in a Superior room even though I had only reserved a Standard room. I chose to check out of the hotel and move to another instead of spending another minute in that depressing grey room.
Also, the advertised wireless internet was only available in the bar/breakfast area and a barren terrace on the 5th floor.
I would NOT recommend this hotel.
From my entrance to my exit, I was taken care of with utmost attention. I enjoyed a degustation menu of seven (!!!!!!!) incredible courses with a different wine to suit every dish. The selection of courses and wines was not only new, surprising and - need I say - expertly composed, but also prepared and served with the greatest care for my pace of dining. Sommelier Max is a young master of his art, as knowledgeable as entertaining. His charming wife Anne watches over guests and staff with energy and style, making sure there is not a single cloud in food heaven. I was there. Don't miss it. Go to heaven.
I ate at Cosmo for the first time since it has changed from an Italian eaterie to a Stylish Modern Restaurant
The service was perfection , the food exciting apparently the chef is this years winner of the Gordon Ramsey scholarship .
The sommerlier Max made the evening with his interesting wine introductions
The evening was made extra special by the pianist at the piano in the cocktail bar
Can you improve an Edinburgh Classic- of course you can and they have
From the moment we went to cosmo we were made feel special, the food was out this world, service at time was a little over attentive but was still first class. Staff where on hand to explain the menu ingredients (if it contained gluten as we have a ceoliac in our company) The chef is obviously enjoying his cooking. We will be back indefinetly.
The new Cosmo style is cosmic. Went there recently and was surprised by the changes. I am always saying there are no good places to eat in Edinburgh, not anymore. Worth every penny, booked in later this month
A 2 hour wait for a starter is not what I would generally call good service, a 4 and a half hour meal in total was also a little long. Although the food was ok (though very small portions and very expensive - especially the wine) the staff did nothing to try to compensate for the delay, they simply ignored us. The lighting is too bright and the atmosphere stuffy. If you want a nice relaxing email in Edinburgh then avoid Cosmo....
This restaurant has recenly undergone refurbishment and is now a fine dining modern european restaurant. The wine list is exceptional and the food was wonderful. We are lovers of fine food and this is a restaurant we would strongly recommend to other fellow lovers of good food. Their head chef Alex Thain won the Gordon Ramsay Scholarship last year. There's been loads written in the press about him.
My wife and I were immedately impressed by the attention to detail from the staff, from the moment we entered the premises they were keen to please.
The head waiter seemed determined that our eating experience at Cosmo would be one which we would remember for all the right reasons.
The quality of the food was quite outstanding, from our antepasto starters to the fillet steak and veal main courses.
The wine list was extensive, with something to suit everyone.
We settled on a good quality Merlot at �23.50.
As an overall experience I would rate it as quite exceptional, and one which we look forward to repeating
