Indigo Yard has been catering to the people of Edinburgh from the comfort of its sequestered alleyway in the heart of the West End for almost 21 years. It's retained a steady following, thanks in part to its ability to stay ahead of the curve with ever-rotating offerings and an understated yet trendy set-up. The menu boasts handy daily deals including two courses for £10, from which diners can choose an assortment of dishes ranging from grilled halloumi to pan fried coley. Seafood is a definite highlight of the menu, with mussels, seabass and crabcakes making up just a few of the options. There is also a variety of interesting local and international beers on tap as well as regularly changing guest beers, which the knowledgeable staff are happy to discuss and recommend.
