Fishers in the City

58 Thistle Street, Edinburgh, EH2 1EN

This converted warehouse on Thistle Street has been a benchmark for seafood dining since Fishers in the City opened here in 2001. With dark wood balustrades and a sociable bar, it’s a relaxed and polished establishment smart enough to keep old…

Guy's Restaurant & Bar

24 Candleriggs, Merchant City, Glasgow, G1 1LD

To paraphrase an estate agent: early dining recommended. Guy’s offers well-sourced ingredients and exquisite cooking at rather gob-smacking prices in its pre-theatre menu. And the cut-off time is a very generous 9pm midweek. The deal includes such great…

Valvona & Crolla Caffè Bar

19 Elm Row, Leith Walk, Edinburgh, EH7 4AA

Even making it through to the light and airy café at Edinburgh institution Valvona & Crolla (which celebrates its 80th birthday during summer 2014) is a bit of a challenge – first you have to negotiate the astonishingly well-stocked deli area out…

Ubiquitous Chip

12 Ashton Lane, Glasgow, G12 8SJ

Any one of various elements alone merit visiting Ubiquitous Chip. The setting is unique, relaxed and stylish, in a greenery-draped covered cobbled courtyard with delightful little design quirks such as sliced-in-half vintage glass drinks decanters hung…

Timberyard

10 Lady Lawson Street, Edinburgh, EH3 9DS

Where to start with Timberyard? Perhaps it’s with the stunning surroundings of the old timber yard itself, the décor post-industrial yet homely, with tartan blankets and dripping candles to soften the edges. Could it be the obvious dedication to good…

Galvin Brasserie de Luxe

Caledonian Hotel, Princes Street, Edinburgh, EH1 2AB

Galvin Brasserie de Luxe is a bit un-Edinburgh. But in a good way. Although in the city’s West End, the street outside could easily be mistaken for London, while inside interprets chic Gallic style. As would be expected in such five-star surroundings…

Urban Bar & Brasserie

23–25 St Vincent Place, Glasgow, G1 2DT

The classical exteriors of this former bank building give way to a large suitably opulent room lined with sumptuous leather lined booths, white tablecloths, tall lamps, globe lighting and leafy plants alongside a lush cocktail bar. As befits the air of…

One Square

1 Festival Square, Edinburgh, EH3 9SR

One Square, an international hotel restaurant in a city-centre Sheraton, sure ticks the moneyed tourist’s boxes, overlooking Festival Square and on up to Edinburgh Castle. There’s much to commend it for Scots too: lovely, kind staff, an elegant…

The Sisters Kelvingrove

36 Kelvingrove Street, Glasgow, G3 7RZ

Having benefitted from a refurbishment that includes murals by Philip Raskin, Sisters Kelvingrove feels slick, clean and modern. Lively banter from tourists and locals alike fill the restaurant with a heartening warmth that is replicated in every dish.

Café St Honoré

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

Barring the name and the elegant Parisian bistro-style interior, it’s been a few years since Cafe St Honore has had much to do with French food. With chef Neil Forbes at the helm the restaurant has turned its focus to using the best of seasonal Scottish…

The Royal Hotel

Melville Square, Comrie, Perth and Kinross, PH6 2DN

Long a favourite of the hunting, fishing and shooting brigade this grand old dame deep in rural Perthshire enjoys a much wider appeal these days. David Milsom has enjoyed the role of chef patron since the Milsoms took over in 2001. Choose from the…

The Scottish Café and Restaurant

National Gallery of Scotland, The Mound, Edinburgh, EH2 2EL

Stopping for lunch here gives almost as much insight into Scotland’s food culture as the adjoining galleries give into its fine art. Awarded a rare three stars by the Sustainable Restaurant Association, this focus shines through the menu: a typical…

Victor & Carina Contini Ristorante

103 George Street, Edinburgh, EH2 3ES

Just as Centrotre celebrates its tenth birthday in 2014 it also unveils a new name as Victor & Carina Contini Ristorante. A family-run restaurant occupying the grand premises of a former bank in a prime city location, their ethos is about fresh and…

Brian Maule at Chardon d'Or

176 West Regent Street, Glasgow, G2 4RL

Glasgow doesn’t currently have a Michelin-starred restaurant, but le Chardon d’Or delivers an experience that’s pretty close. Chef Brian Maule spent eleven years with Michel Roux Jr at Le Gavroche, and his experience shows in elegant, precisely…

Rhubarb

Prestonfield House, Priestfield Road, Edinburgh, EH16 5UT

Suit up and step into what feels like the film set of a high-budget period drama. Actually, not many films would have the budget for 400-year-old props – you can play ‘spot the date’ on paintings by artists dead since the late 1600s, and the leather…

The Sisters Jordanhill

1a Ashwood Gardens, 512 Crow Road, Glasgow, G13 1NU

With its own private car park outside and Jordanhill train station located literally right across the street, inaccessibility is no excuse for putting off a visit to this suburban restaurant situated in the attic of a row of shops on Crow Road (entrance…

The Sorn Inn

35 Main Street, Sorn, Ayrshire, KA5 6HU

Kailzie Gardens Restaurant

Kailzie Estate, Peebles, Scottish Borders, EH45 9HT

If this picturesque corner of the Borders didn’t already have enough to recommend itself, the restaurant at Kailzie Gardens has more than added another attraction. Chef Stuart Clink took on the out-of-town eatery in 2010 and was awarded Michelin Bib…

Martha's

142a St Vincent Street, Glasgow, G2 5LQ

A bit of an oasis in a City Centre full of greasy takeaways, Martha’s will make you wonder why more cafés don’t emulate this simple ethos of quick, healthy and hearty food, with their seasonally responsive menus, ethically sourced local suppliers and a…

North Bridge Brasserie

20 North Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1YT

North Bridge Brasserie stands grandly like a great Victorian oak and marble library on the link between Edinburgh’s Old Town and New, in the old home of the Scotsman newspaper, once the beating heart of a nation’s conversation. That pulse has stopped…

Balbirnie House Hotel, Balbirnie Park, by Glenrothes, Fife, KY7 6NE
