This pub claims to be the oldest in Edinburgh. It’s located in Duddingston village on the other side of Arthur’s Seat. Arthur’s Seat is the extinct volcano behind Holyrood Palace and the new Scottish Parliament which provides spectacular views if you climb the 800+ feet to the top. You can then descend to Duddingston to quench your thirst at Sheep’s ...Popular withHistoryLocal

Valvona & Crolla is described as a specialty food and wine shop. There are two, one on Elm Road and one on Multrees Walk, both in New Town. The Elm location is the original. The Multrees location opened in late 2004. The Elm location has a small restaurant at the back which is very hard to get into and they ...Popular withFoodies

If you think you would like to try haggis, my first recommendation would be to try it at Dubh Prais where it is served as an appetizer with a creamy whisky sauce. We have it every time we visit. Dubh Prais is located midway down the Royal Mile. If you aren't looking for it, you might miss it. A sign ...

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 ...

Three thin ladies was my first meal out of France in forever and let me tell you...it was amazing. The menu features fresh, organic, healthy options (even gluten free bread!). It's a cute cozy place with huge coffees and super friendly staff. Centrally located this place also serves brunch all day at decent prices. Couldn't have been any happier during ...

I really liked the vibe of this place. Have some great ale on the tab, and food here is fantastic. We had Speyside beef, and it was one of the best meals I've had in Scotland!Popular withGreenFoodiesNightlife

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, ...

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 ...

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 ...Popular withFoodies
