22–24 Easter Road, Edinburgh, EH7 5RG

Half bakery, half café, the Manna House shows all-round dedication to excellent food, whether that’s a best-selling pain de campagne loaf to take home, a creamy slab of quiche or an elegantly chocolate-crammed patisserie with Eteaket tea. Absolutely…


0.8 miles
126–130 Easter Road, Edinburgh, EH7 5RJ

Meandering down Easter Road, you could easily walk past the humble exterior of Rivage. But once inside, your senses are rewarded with alluring aromas from the tandoor oven, which is visible from the main dining room. Since opening in 2007, Rivage has…

The Storytelling Café

0.9 miles
Scottish Storytelling Centre, 43 High Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1SR

0.9 miles
6–8 Clerk Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9HX

Although a relative newcomer, Tanjore is becoming an increasingly popular spot for diners in the know. And quite rightly so. Tanjore exquisitely exhibits the best of south Indian cuisine, a lot of which is not to be found on menus in other Indian…


0.9 miles
57–61 Blackfriars Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1NB

Formerly a slightly eccentric bohemian hangout renowned for its so-so vegetarian menu and diminutive pool cues, this Old Town stalwart has been reincarnated: half-pub, half-bistro, all proper Bo. Genuinely local, genuinely seasonal and genuinely cooked…

3 Royal Terrace, Edinburgh, EH7 5AB

Paul Kitching has been cooking his own sweet way since his Michelin-starred fine-diner opened five years ago. It starts with a menu beating a distinctive 2-1-2-1-2 rhythm of choices at each course. The two ‘ones’ are soup and cheese courses, punctuating…


0.9 miles
57–61 High Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1SR

There is no shortage of tacky tourist honeypots on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, but hidden among the overpriced eateries and giftshops selling Lady Di tartan and kilt towels, this bar/restaurant is a pleasant surprise. It’s down a close lit by candles and…

14a Nicolson Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9DH

One of the best-kept secrets of the Old Town, nestled above a sandwich franchise and a music shop on Nicolson Street, Suruchi provides an inconspicuous oasis of calm in the bustling district of Newington. As Scotland’s first Thali restaurant, this…

Edinburgh Larder Café

0.9 miles
15 Blackfriars Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1NB

This understandably popular café has a rustic style yet warm feel, where the welcome is genuine and the soft background music would never interfere with conversation. The menu contains a feast of local ingredients and some from across Scotland: the deli…

The Gardener's Cottage

0.9 miles
1 Royal Terrace Gardens, Edinburgh, EH7 5DX

Critically lauded Gardener’s Cottage has won acclaim for its back-to-basics approach of communal tables and pared-down, ingredients-led cooking. A five-course set dinner menu changes daily (you can find the current day’s on Twitter or Facebook) and is…


0.9 miles
41 West Nicolson Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9DB

Some addresses seem to doom a restaurant from the get-go; others attract those who just get what it is that people want for a meal out. Having successfully taken the reins from long-loved Home Bistro a year ago, Field is the latter. There’s nothing…

Kim's Korean Meals

0.9 miles
5 Buccleuch Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9JN

Wouldn’t it be great to have a long-lost Korean family, who would warmly welcome and generously feed you whenever you rolled up? Great news. Head to a check-by-jowl affair in the midst of Buccleuch Street. Perplexed as to what to order? Not a problem.

The Royal Dick Bar & Bistro

1.0 miles
1 Summerhall, Edinburgh, EH9 1 PL

Hellers Kitchen

1.0 miles
15 Salisbury Place, Edinburgh, EH9 1SL

Hellers Kitchen is a heavenly all-rounder. Feeding Southside locals morning to night, it transitions smoothly from full breakfasts and American-style pancakes as the sun rises, to stone-baked pizzas and sandwiches on home-made sourdough at lunch and…

BrewDog Edinburgh

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

Any bar that proclaims 'no live sport, no football, no shots and no Stella' isn’t likely to be a shrinking violet. Urban and edgy in equal measure, BrewDog barks out bags of attitude to an already colourful Cowgate. The narrow bar has half a dozen…


1.1 miles
1 Antigua Street, Edinburgh, EH1 3NH

Situated on a brightly lit corner opposite the Playhouse Theatre, Pomegranate looks like a convenient place to grab a good value pre-theatre fill-up before catching a show, but take a closer look and you’ll find there’s more here than immediately meets…

8-9 Teviot Place, Edinburgh, EH1 2QZ

Gran Caffè

1.1 miles
The Signet Library, Parliament Square, High Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1RF

Union of Genius

1.1 miles
8 Forrest Road, Edinburgh, EH1 2QN

Everyone is greeted with a smile at this warm, friendly and tiny café. Takeaways are extremely popular, partly due to the lack of seats but mainly due to its growing reputation as one of the finest purveyors of soups in Edinburgh. The six globally…

Stack Dim Sum Bar

1.2 miles
42 Dalmeny Street, Edinburgh, EH6 8RG

From outside, the unprepossessing shopfront of Stack Dim Sum barely catches the notice of most passers-by. Step inside, however, and the bustle of trays laden with steam baskets of dumplings, buns and won tons draws your attention around the room.


1.2 miles
2 George IV Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1AD

The original Ondine was a water nymph. And if she was anything like her restaurant namesake, she must have been quite a girl. Dark and coolly elegant, dressed in shades of silver, black and shimmery charcoal greys. The kind you might see on a Friday…
