#31: Lebowskis, Morrison Street, Edinburgh

Lebowskis, Morrison Street, Edinburgh (exterior)

Named after “The Dude” in The Big Lebowski, this place has an entire menu of variations on a White Russian. Thankfully, they also have beer.

They’ve had a bit of a makeover since we were last in, changing it around enough to finally escape the shadow of its previous incarnation, the Festival Tavern, our local when I were a lad.

Two real ales, Caledonian Deuchars and Harviestoun Bitter & Twisted, no sign of either of those being guest beers. On keg, Tennent’s, Guinness, Belhaven Best, San Miguel, Heineken, Grolsch and Estrella Damm.

Our round was £13.90 for 4 pints, so around £3.50 a pint.

The food’s good, with burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches and “sliders” (mini burgers I think). My chilli hot dog was tasty. The burgers looked good too, pretty big, but maybe a touch expensive at £9 to £13, or is that just me? Bonus points for having your dinner cooked for you by Robert De Niro in the Deer Hunter (see right).

Westy, it looks like they’re trying to address your concerns with serving burgers on a bread board. These are more butcher’s block than bread board, with a wee channel to catch any juices. Still not convinced?

Russ, I didn’t spot them at the time, but the menu online says they do “potato nachos”. Perhaps that’s worth a try, but I’m guessing they’re immediately disqualified.


There’s a small decked area outside with some wee benches, but no tables.

I don’t think there were any TVs, and on the stereo there was the likes of Broken Bells, The XX and Kings of Convenience.

    • I’m guessing they just mean crisps instead of nacho chips. It does sound wrong though. How can you call them nachos without nacho chips?

  1. I love how I got described XD Deer Hunter De Niro says we have a new menu on now, the nachos aren’t on it. They were nachos in spirit, same way a salad nicoise isn’t a salad but still is..
