Rivage

0.9 miles
3 Royal Terrace, Edinburgh, EH7 5AB

Paul Kitching is a man who has clearly worked hard to evolve his own voice in the kitchen: a complex and witty patchwork approach to cooking with its own unique language. So on the menu you might see C.A.M x 123 or perhaps Beef Fillet 'Cow Py'…

Milk at Collective

0.9 miles
City Observatory & City Dome, 38 Calton Hill, Edinburgh, EH7 5AA

When climbing Calton Hill, your breath could be taken away as much by the climb as by the view from the top – but a sound word of advice would be to keep enough breath to cool what will be an unquestionably delicious soup from Milk, the unsung hero of…

Mother India's Café

0.9 miles
3–5 Infirmary Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1LT

Kim's Korean Meals

0.9 miles
5 Buccleuch Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9JN

It’s easy to see why booking is essential at this quirky little Korean restaurant with its loyal following and well-deserved reputation. It comes as no surprise either that the owners have moved in next door: a family business in the truest sense, the…

New Saffrani

1.0 miles
11 South College Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9AA

Nestled on a cobbled street near Old College, New Saffrani is not the usual student retreat you might expect from this part of town. Instead of cut-price cuisine, crisp white linen and folded black napkins await you, as does a selection of inviting…

Café Renroc

1.0 miles
91 Montgomery Street, Edinburgh, EH7 5HZ

Salisbury Hotel, Salisbury Road, Edinburgh, EH16 5AA

OX184

1.0 miles
184 Cowgate, Edinburgh, EH1 1JJ

Opened mere days before time of writing, there’s understandably a sense that this unlikely but very welcome addition to the Cowgate’s drinking options is still finding its feet – they have no children’s licence as yet, for example, when its surely one…

The Fruitmarket Gallery Café

1.0 miles
Fruitmarket Gallery, 45 Market Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1DF

Bright and buzzing, this café is a great place to ease the feet and mind after a gallery visit – and is worth a special trip for a delicious, sustaining lunch. A selection of interesting daily dishes dreamed up by chefs Robin Campbell and Stephen…

Valvona & Crolla Caffè Bar

1.1 miles
19 Elm Row, Leith Walk, Edinburgh, EH7 4AA

BrewDog Edinburgh

1.1 miles
143–145 Cowgate, Edinburgh, EH1 1JS

Pera: Turkish Mangal & Meze Bar

1.1 miles
57 Elm Row, Edinburgh, EH7 4AQ

Bodega

1.1 miles
62 Elm Row, Leith Walk, Edinburgh, EH7 4AQ

Recently Edinburgh has seen a clutch of new Mexican joints that offer something different from the traditional fajitas/burritos/nachos triptych that defines how many of us discovered this cuisine. Soft tacos are now where it’s at, and Bodega gets the…

Ting Thai Caravan

1.1 miles
8–9 Teviot Place, Edinburgh, EH1 2QZ

Paper menus and spotless high benches say fast food, but in reality Ting Thai Caravan has stripped away the frivolity and tat that adorns many Thai restaurants. This is about the food. Cardboard boxes and simple steaming bowls of delight are delivered…
