    A local haunt that has plenty of character and famous frequenters. I quite enjoyed my time here and can easily see why it is so popular!

    The Elephant House Ltd

    It's a must for any Harry Potter nerd! JK Rowling started writing her first bits of the books here in the cafe. Now it is rather touristy, but I still enjoyed it.

    The Witchery

    what a special place, dark, historical, traditional menu, eat there at the evening that you go to the Tattoo, and you won't have to stand in line..you are already almost in front of the Castle!! also nice patio, great atmosphere, rather expensive.

    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

    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 ...

    A fantastic restaurant in the heart of New Town, The Dogs serves fresh and modern takes on Scottish classics. It is frequented by locals and is a great place for dinner before heading to the stylish George Street for drinks.

    Standard Hard Rock restaurant and menu, reasonable food at not quite so reasonable prices, why don't you try an independent restaurant instead ;)

    Anstruther Fish Bar

    4.5
    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 ...

    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!

    The Outsider Restaurant

    4.5
    2 reviews

    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 ...

    MUMS GREAT COMFORT FOOD

    4.5
    2 reviews

    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, ...

    Caffe Nero

    4.5
    2 reviews

    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 ...
