A Room in Leith

1a Dock Place, Edinburgh, EH6 6LU

The 'Room in …' enterprise has undergone some big changes since 2013, having closed A Room in the Town and expanded the Leith outpost of Teuchters Landing pub – but the biggest change has been the shift to bigger premises for A Room in Leith, across the…

A Room in the West End

26 William Street, Edinburgh, EH3 7NH

A Room in the West End’s signature dishes – haggis, neeps and tatties to start and their famous banoffee pie to finish – signal their strengths. This place excels at well cooked, comfortable dinners that will interest but not dominate the conversation.


36 Queensferry Street, Edinburgh, EH2 4QS

Could this be the finest ice cream in Edinburgh? If it’s not, it’s right up there with the best. Strictly speaking, it’s actually gelato that Anna Campbell’s friendly West End establishment both creates (on the premises) and serves from its revolving…


27 Sciennes Road, Edinburgh, EH9 1NX

B&D's Kitchen

214 Dalry Road, Edinburgh, EH11 2ES

In keeping with Edinburgh’s growing trend of exciting, punch-packed restaurants in pocket-sized shop front venues, B&D’s Kitchen is a hot spot to enjoy. The surroundings are simple, the seating limited, but the menu is worth exploring long before…

La Barantine

202 Bruntsfield Place, Edinburgh, EH10 4DF

For an authentic taste of France, you could schlep off on the Eurostar or you could pop up to Bruntsfield Place, where owner and chef Vincent Alpincourt’s café is now comfortably established. A charming Gallic shrug of acquiescence greets almost any…

Bluerapa Thai

6 Torphichen Place, Edinburgh, EH3 8DU

Small, sparse and brightly lit, Bluerapa has been plying its trade in the unprepossessing Haymarket byway of Torphichen Place for just under two years. Punters in search of fine dining might consider venturing furthering into town – the food here is…


62 Elm Row, Leith Walk, Edinburgh, EH7 4AQ

What you see is what you get at this simply furnished restaurant with a single row of tables and room for only 20 diners. A relative newcomer to the capital’s Mexican scene, Bodega is steadily building a local clientele drawn by a short menu of tacos…

Bonsai Bar Bistro

14 Broughton Street, Edinburgh, EH1 3RH

Bright and confident, Bonsai Bar’s New Town bistro has settled nicely into one of Edinburgh leading foodie neighbourhoods. The menu is unchanged from its Richmond Street big sister but the mood is distinctly different. In Broughton Street it’s young…

Brazilian Sensation

117–119 Buccleuch Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9NG

If ever there was an example of a restaurant that hides its light under a bushel, it must be Brazilian Sensation. At first glance it looks more like a cafe than a restaurant, but to walk past it would be to truly miss out - this is one of the very best…

Broughton Delicatessen

7 Barony Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6PD

Brightly coloured paper snowballs hang from the ceiling and illustrations by local artists adorn the walls of this vibrant deli-cafe, which is as popular for a takeaway salad box as it is for a relaxing coffee and cake pitstop. In a menu packed with…

Café Andamiro

113 Buccleuch Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9NG

Partly pastry café, partly casual restaurant, Café Andamiro, newly arrived in 2014, joins the Far Eastern dining community expanding around the University of Edinburgh. The setting is low key and not homey, but has style. The menu is a genuine mix of…

Cafe Casablanca

373 Leith Walk, Edinburgh, EH6 8SE

Casa Angelina

42 London Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6LX

It can't be often that patisserie and fancy dress coincide, but when they do it's a marvellous thing. Casa Angelina is run by two pastry chefs with a passion for cakes and vintage styling. Soups, croques and sandwiches on home-made bread are the savoury…

CC Blooms

23–24 Greenside Place, Edinburgh, EH1 3AA

Previously known solely as Edinburgh’s most lively after-hours gay bar and club, CC Bloom’s has of late done a good job of fixing itself up – both in terms of its interior and its hedonistic good-time reputation – as a pleasant bar and diner for all…

Circle by Di Giorgio

1 Brandon Terrace, Canonmills, Edinburgh, EH3 5AE

Joining the hotbed of café competition in Canonmills, Circle by Di Giorgio opened under new owners Nadia and Ivan Di Giorgio in August 2013 and has already earned its stripes. Straddling the divide between bistro and café, a strong Italian influence…

The Forest Café

141 Lauriston Place, Edinburgh, EH3 9JN

The Forest Café, a hippy-ish, vegetarian café in a glass-fronted corner on Lauriston Place, affords excellent views for people-watching both outside and in. Here, in dusty nooks, an army of volunteers bustle among mismatched, recycled chairs and…

Unit 3, Corunna Place, Leith, Edinburgh, EH6 5JG

Tania Dixon moved her successful catering business Ginger Snap from Perthshire to Edinburgh in 2012, carrying with her an impressive client list including Brewin Dolphin, Bonham's and Louis Vuitton. She's an experienced and highly regarded wedding…

Glass & Thompson

2 Dundas Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6HZ

Taking pride of place at the top of Dundas Street, Glass & Thompson know a thing or two about great food. A deli-style menu delights with a great range of options, from homemade quiches to charcuterie boards, served with the freshest of breads. The…

Hay Sushi

15 Dalry Road, Edinburgh, EH11 2BQ

Hop across from the newly redeveloped Haymarket Station to embrace an expansive Japanese dining opportunity. Whether a quick bite or a leisurely, multi-plate feast, Hay Sushi has a lot that’s good to offer. How do they make those ebi goyza prawn…

The Himalaya Centre

20 South Clerk Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9PR

In 2005, at the Scottish Parliament, the Dalai Lama told Reka Gawa: ‘Don't forget you’re Tibetan; keep the culture alive.’ She had long dreamed of opening a shop, and in 2007, inspired by his words, she did so: the photo of their meeting hangs proudly…

Howies (Victoria Street)

10–14 Victoria Street, Edinburgh, EH1 2HG

Back under the watchful eye of founder David Howie Scott for long enough for it to feel like it was ever thus, the relaxed atmosphere, reasonable pricing and easy-going cooking so familiar of the Howies trio (two in Edinburgh, a third in Aberdeen) keep…
