Best Places for a Romantic Meal in Edinburgh

Café St Honoré

Woo that special someone with a top meal in one of these romantic eateries


With a trail of mysterious closes, breathtaking architecture and a magical castle sitting slap bang in the city centre, Edinburgh attracts lovebirds from all over. From the Michelin stars offering true Scottish grub to the cosy, traditional French brasseries, what better way to complete a romantic venture around the city than by wooing your date with some good grub.

An outrageously pretty Michelin-starred restaurant, where Paul Kitching's unique creativity shines through in every bonkers dish.
