The Canons' Gait

232 Canongate, Edinburgh, EH8 8DQ

The Royal Mile isn't short on pubs, so you've got to do something to mark yourself out. In the case of the Canon's Gait, part of the DM Stewart group that also runs the venerable Abbotsford and Guildford Arms in the New Town, various points of…

Number One

1 Princes Street, Edinburgh, EH2 2EQ

From the moment you enter Number One there is little doubt that every aspect of this operation is a very classy affair. The surroundings are stylish and the welcome is warm. This is exactly what you would expect from Michelin-starred fine dining, from…

The Grain Store

30 Victoria Street, Edinburgh, EH1 2JW

Given its prime location tucked beneath the castle at the heart of the cobbled tourist warren of the Old Town, the Grain Store could be forgiven for just catering to jolly groups, first-time visitors and couples more interested in romance than cuisine.

Nile Valley

6 Chapel Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9AY

Nile Valley has remained almost completely unchanged for years. The posters wallpapering the stairs down to the dingy basement dining area rotate, advertising new club nights and student drama productions. It’s a Sudanese restaurant, with popular Middle…

The Skerries

Dunstane House Hotel, 4 West Coates, Edinburgh, EH12 5JQ

Skerries is the restaurant within the Dunstane House Hotel and its grand dining room, ornately decorated with cornicing, chandeliers and large mirrors, has the hushed atmosphere often found in such rooms. The menu is fairly traditional, without much…

75 St Leonard's Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9QR

Generous platefuls, unfussy service and a cheery neighbourhood vibe make this bistro a pleasant choice to while away a weeknight, and the large street-level windows and hurried comings and goings of the area’s students and young professionals provide…

The Edwardian Kitchen Restaurant

Pollok House, Pollok Country Park, 2060 Pollokshaws Road, Glasgow, G43 1AT

Eating at the 18th-century estate house in glorious Pollok Country Park is like being invited for lunch at Downton Abbey. Sitting downstairs in the old kitchen, surrounded by artefacts –- including copper pans and an original cast-iron stove – of the…

Malmaison Brasserie

1 Tower Place, Edinburgh, EH6 7BZ

With only the odd model ship hinting at its original function as a seaman's mission (and thankfully nothing to indicate another past incarnation as a house of ill-repute), the Mal instead exudes a distinctly Parisian feel, dressed in rich, dark hues and…

Mr Singh's India

149 Elderslie Street, Glasgow, G3 7JR

La Scala d'Oro

The Tolbooth, Jail Wynd, Stirling, FK8 1DE

113 Brunswick Street, Leith Walk, Edinburgh, EH7 5HR

The latest addition to the Vittoria family comes in the shape of a stylish and atmospheric basement wine bar, Divino Enoteca, in the belly of their George IV bridge outlet. Divino is proof positive that the Vittoria formula is a winning one, and the…


The Old Cheesemarket, 62 Albion Street, Glasgow, G1 1PA

In Glasgow’s trendy Merchant City the competition among restaurants to attract discerning diners is high. Artà stands out architecturally. Once the location of a medieval cheese market this listed building was developed Baroque style in 2000 into a…

Bar Soba

11 Mitchell Lane, Glasgow, G1 3NU

The stylish City Centre branch of Bar Soba attracts a cosmopolitan mix of shoppers sipping wine, pre-clubbers enjoying unusual cocktails and diners looking for contemporary Asian food. All rub shoulders with ease as the bar area, with subdued lighting…

La Bonne Auberge

161 West Nile Street, Glasgow, G1 2RL

Considerably nicer than a restaurant housed in the foyer of a middling chain hotel has any right to be, La Bonne Auberge has experienced a facelift in the last year, with previously fussy décor disposed of for a more contemporary-feeling retro-modern…

Brian Maule at Chardon d'Or

176 West Regent Street, Glasgow, G2 4RL

They have you from the warm brioche at Brian Maule at Chardon d’Or, as a veritable armoury of silver cutlery gleams on the brilliant white tablecloth, and waiting staff dressed head-to-toe in black scrape stray crumbs from tables. The cost of a…

Café St Honoré

34 North West Thistle Street Lane, Edinburgh, EH2 1EA

Venture down a cobbled New Town lane to find this romantic slice of Paris. With its wood panelling, black and white floor tiles and hazy old mirrors, the atmosphere is classic French brasserie. The food, however, is much more exciting. Under the…

Channings Restaurant

12–16 South Learmonth Gardens, Comely Bank, Edinburgh, EH4 1EZ

Karen Higgins is that rare thing among Edinburgh restaurants: a female chef in charge of her own kitchen. It’s her food that attempts to brighten the rather gloomy dining room of this Comely Bank hotel. Take a squint at the short menu and it’s all…


Radisson SAS Hotel, 301 Argyle Street, Glasgow, G2 8DL

David Bann

56–58 St Mary's Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1SX

As relaxing as its romantic aubergine tones and colour-blocked walls are, diners could be excused for finding a meal at David Bann a tad confusing. A mixed message comes through its menu, which sees imaginative and elegant starters and desserts…

The Dome Grill Room

14 George Street, Edinburgh, EH2 2PF

In the battle of opulent one-upmanship that is George Street’s social scene, The Dome stands out like a precious gem set amongst the Swarovski-studded bling of its New Town neighbours. Marble, mosaic and the impressive glass-coffered dome itself all…

La Fiorentina

2 Paisley Road West, Glasgow, G51 1LE

The interior here is reassuringly familiar. There’s no designer brick, glass and leather – it is faux Italian trattoria of a dying breed. There’s a market for it though as this place has a loyal following. The chef’s special recipe fish cakes to start…

La Garrigue

31 Jeffrey Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1DH

It is tempting to describe La Garrigue as an Edinburgh institution. You know the name, and perhaps you’ve long wanted to go. And go you should. Multi-awarded and much-exulted, La Garrigue is Jean Michel Gauffre’s proud paean to the cuisine of his native…

The Howgate Bar & Restaurant

Howgate Village, Penicuik, Midlothian, EH26 8PY

The Indian Cavalry Club

22 Coates Crescent, Edinburgh, EH3 7AF

This West End institution, which celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2012, is where the old Raj meets modern day Edinburgh. Funky screen prints on the wall look down on crisp linen tablecloths and waiters in military-style uniforms serve classic Indian…

Katie's Diner

12 Barclay Terrace, Edinburgh, EH10 4HP

Behind the blinking neon sign, Katie’s Diner is the kind of hospitable family-run restaurant that every neighbourhood should have. Owners Geoff and Kate have been perfecting their game for the last 13 years, concentrating on doing a few things well and…
