    The Elephant House Ltd

    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 ...

    Castle terrace Restaurant

    4
    5 reviews

    This was my first experience at a Michelin star restaurant. Myself and my travel companions were lucky enough to get the full treatment, ordering from the chef's table, being treated to additional tasters from the kitchen. It was not only an amazing experience, the food was un-real! The set lunch menu was affordable. I can't wait until my next visit.

    5 reviews

    This is known to be the oldest bar in Scotland. Like many of the bars in Edinburgh city, it was also renovated and turned into a gastropub. It's lovely inside, a mix of the old with the new. There's lots of variety of beers and cider on tap, and nice small selection of bar foods. It may seem small from ...

    Tea room with a wide variety of tea and baked goods. Didn't have the best of service here and my scone was a bit too heavy for my liking but I'd definitely come back to try some of their pastries and sample more tea.

    Dubh Prais

    Great for traditional Scottish food with a slight twist. A notch above most places to eat on the Royal Mile.

    3 reviews

    The queue was out the door and we had to wait twenty minutes to be served, that was just for a take away! We had been warned that this was a popular chippy, and that there was a good reason. Once we reached the counter the food was served extra quick and savoured in a spot by the harbour. The ...

    The Outsider Restaurant

    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 ...

    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, ...

    Went to the city location, but same place. Friends that it was only a fish and chips place and were more than surprised to see it was a bit "fancy" but in a good way. Their fish and chips was excellent and my scallops and gnocchi was exceptional. Had an amazing Australian Chardonnay as well which made the meal even ...
