    The Elephant House Ltd

    0.25 mi from Edinburgh Castle

    One of my favorite travel moments of all time happened in this café. I stopped here for dinner one evening and the only table that was open was the one where J. K. Rowling wrote the first two Harry Potter books. I took what was once her seat and peered out the window. The view was spectacular! I can definitely ...

    A restaurant right in the old town. The ambiance is totally lovely and super romantic, with dim lights on the wall and candles on the table. There is a loft area and several tables along the windows have great view of the Edinburgh Castle. I ordered whole sea bream and it was outstanding. The skin was crispy and the meat ...

    The Grain Store

    0.17 mi from Edinburgh Castle

    This Old Town restaurant is on the very attractive Victoria Street. Calling its cuisine Scottish basically means it emphasizes local ingredients which result in favourful dishes. The wine list is fairly short but very reasonably priced. The name is because it is located in a former grain storage building and thus has interesting vaults within.

    A bistro style uppish-market bar on the Royal Mile. It is attractive, cosy and welcoming with enthusiastic staff. We have had reasonably good soup and sandwiches for lunch here. They have a good selection of real ales as well as whiskies.

    Eteaket, a charming tea shop located only a couple blocks from the popular Princes Street, is wonderful for those who are new or veterans to the UK's fashionable high tea time. Choose from dozens of black teas, green, white, fruit, or tea lattes, each served in a personal tea pot, none of which match one another or their accompanying tea ...

    "Billionaires Shortbread" one up from the Millionaires version...The Chocolate Lounge at Harvey Nichols in Edinburgh is just heavenly. The menu is really hard to choose from and the cake examples on the conveyor belt don't make the decision any easier! Perfect treat for the family, a great end to a girly shopping trip or a romantic coupley thing to do. ...

    Nice chap attended us. Food not the best I've ever tried. Very normal onion rings and the potato skins were pre-heated on microwave but served cold and not fresh. Burgers were normal.

    This cozy little cafe is walkable from anywhere in town. They have anything from your traditional Scottish breakfast, to fresh salads, to high tea. We went for the soup and salad, both of which were fresh and affordable. I was tempted by the happy hour platter selection with byob no corking fees, but sadly will have to save it for ...

    Some home cooking was just what I needed. Mums is a small, casual, and busy restaurant. Service was nice. The food was warm, comforting, and good. I ordered the 2 sausages with mash. I tried the special pork sausage with the devil's revenge over garlic mushroom mash potatoes. The sausages were tasty. The mash didn't have too much garlic flavor, ...

    This is my most favourite cafe in Edinburgh! It's nice and cozy, music isn't too loud, relaxing, wifi, friendly staff, great hot chocolates and cakes and pastries! I visit this place quite often and most of the time go for the usual pick: hot chocolate with either the almond tarte or carrot and raisin cake. It's not the cheapest place ...
