We had just over an hour in between appointments and needed some food and prosecco. Despite taking our order quick and delivering drinks promptly we did have a bit of a wait for our food. However when it arrived it was super tasty and plentiful....More

Went for the first time with a friend, who had recommended. I'll give them this much; the food was 'okay' – and that's as far as I'd go. George Street is teeming with great restaurants; Café Andaluz, Amarone, The Dome... and I can't say Candy...More

Had dinner here with a small group yesterday. Good cocktail menu, very reasonable prices. Our group had pizza’s, burgers and sandwiches with a variety of chips. Food was fresh, hot and service prompt and friendly. Also well priced. Well worth a try.

Stopped by for a few drinks and a snack after the refurb and am impressed with it. The garish 1980's theme is now gone for a much more sophisticated and contemporary look. The menu is varied - its not high end, but the food is...More

Came here for a meal after a bit of shopping. I had the crab poppers for a starter which were amazing then the chicken parmo that was also good but nothing like an original from Boro. Good drink selection too.

I had lunch at Candy Bar for the first time since its been refurbished and I was very impressed. The new menu is great and the hard shakes are amazing but a little pricey. Definately worth a visit.

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
