  • The Witchery By The Castle

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Edinburgh Restaurants

    I had a very disappointing meal at the Secret Garden yesterday, so much so that this is the first time I've been compelled to comment on this site. My starter was a bit of a disaster. Although it tasted fine, the waitress dragged a napkin through it before I had chance to start eating it (pea veloute) whilst pouring my drink. She neither...

  • The Willow Tea Room

    4 out of 5 stars

    Glasgow Restaurants

    I had heard about the Willow Tea Rooms from the book "1000 Places to See Before You Die". It is one of the many building's designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and is worth the visit. Went to the original building on Sauchiehall and sat in the Room De Luxe when we went for breakfast, and it was worth the visit. The room is not very large, but...

    Glasgow Restaurants

    Interested in other opinions of this restaurant. Asked for a seat overlooking SnoZone as my son was snowboarding and we wanted to watch but even though the seats were three feet from other diners we weren't allowed to sit in them!! We went elsewhere on principle even though we couldn't see the snowboarding at all. From other views maybe its just...

  • Elephant House

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Edinburgh Restaurants

    The Elephant House bills itself as "The Birthplace of Harry Potter", because this is where the author J.K. Rowling often "mulled over a coffee writing her first Harry Potter novel." They have a nice view of Edinburgh Castle out the back window, and up front there are some computers with internet connection which used to cost £ 1.00 for thirty...

    Great menu and great choice of beverages with lots of rock memorabilia and a great rock shop.Hard Rock Edinburgh has the usual excellent service you find with most Hard Rock Cafe's and is usually quite busy with both residents of the city and visitors.Quite small compared to other U.K Hard rock cafe's but still cool. Opening times:Sun till...

  • Ubiquitous Chip

    4 out of 5 stars

    Glasgow Restaurants

    This is a restaurant I used to go to frequently when I stayed in the area and have returned three times recently after a gap of 7 years or so. There won't be such a long gap before I return! While the internal layout has changed somewhat, and it has added a great terrace to the upstairs bar, it is still largely as it always has been. The main...

  • The Standing Order

    Edinburgh Restaurants

    We ended up here for breakfast (and dinner) during our one day trip into Edinburgh, as a recommendation from the concierge at The Balmoral Hotel. He let us know it was great food and their prices were incredible reasonable. We were so pleased with the portion sizes and prices (as well as the fact that they had the calorie count on the menu which...

  • The Counting House

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Glasgow Restaurants

    This is a Wetherspoon restaurant, but located in an old building on the corner of George Square. I once spent a very nice Sunday afternoon celebrating a friend's birthday with a copious afternoon meal. The food is traditional; what is impressive is the decor, as most of the buildings in Merchant City used to be trade buildings or Court House....

    Having eaten here before I had no hesitation in booking it for my fortieth birthday We arrived at 8pm, despite only two other tables being occupied we were seated at a very small table in front of the entrance in a draft. Thankfully we were moved. The place was bitterly cold. When I complained the manager sarcastically told me it was cold outside...

    OK, if you've been reading my tips especially on my separate Scotland page then by now you've probably guessed it - yes, my husband's family name is McGregor... and that makes it my new family name, too! So naturally we *had to* visit this pub, what choice did we have? ;-) The Royal McGregor is run by - you guessed it again - the McGregor family...

    This place serves the worst food and the seafood is old and way overpriced. I had oysters that were old and stuck like mud ..justgross and unedible. Dangerous to serve this kind of nasty seafood..can get very ill for sure. All shellfish was old and smelly water poured out of all the shellfish. Even the soup was horrid..tated like dirty diah water,...

  • Clamshell

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Edinburgh Restaurants

    The Clamshell is located on the Royal Mile and serves good quality fish 'n' chips as well as other "fast comfort food" favourites such as burgers, meat pies, pizzas and even Haggis. We had often heard that the quality of the food is above many of the other, similar take-away chippies in Edinburgh, and after eating there twice we can confirm that...

  • Dino's

    4 out of 5 stars

    Glasgow Restaurants

    Dino's is a very busy restaurant, and deservedly so. The decor tends to the Italian. The service was excellent and the waiters cheerful and helpful. My friend and I settled for something fairly simple. She had a huge bacon omelette and a diet Coke. I had 3 lamb chops with rosemary roasted potatoes ,and at the recommendation of the Algerian waiter I...

  • Greyfriars' Bobby

    4 out of 5 stars

    Edinburgh Restaurants

    Particularly if you are interested in the story of the loyal little Skye Terrier named Bobby, a visit to this pub is a must. One could assume that this pub would be a horrible tourist-haunt, void of any real character with poor service and unappetizing food, surviving solely on the fact that the cemetery where the famous little dog is buried (see...

    This restaurant is right around the corner from the Hotel Grosvenor, on the corner of Grosvenor and W. Maitland Street. It is easily reached in the vicinity of Haymarket Station and has an attractive street side presence. You can't miss it really with "Omar Khayyam" in red & blue neon lights big as life with gothic script. The decor is quite nice...

  • Baked Potato Shop, Cockburn Street

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Edinburgh Restaurants

    I used to live on Cockburn Street (the downward street that loops between the royal mile and waverly station) and this was our favourite place to go for a healthy takeaway. It does the biggest baked potatos I have ever seen and a huge selection of vegan / vegetarian fillings. There are a few seats to eat in but not a lot of room so if you want a...

    Edinburgh Restaurants

    My husband is from Edinburgh, and he often told me about the delicious food and the hilariously warm and endearing staff at Bar Napoli. This was his regular Italian, or in John's words: "the only Italian worth visiting." He told me stories of the waiters flirting with pretty girls, of the owner breaking into spontaneous operatics and generally of...

  • Buffalo Grill, Raeburn Place

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Edinburgh Restaurants

    It was a little strange to me, having grown up in the American west, to see a place called the Buffalo Grill in Scotland. However, I have no complaints about the meal and the décor was in keeping with the name which gave it a certain charm. I had the Delmonico steak with fries and a small salad which was quite good. Others in the group had a...

The waiters always remember me (maybe because my friend spilt red wine on the table the first time:-) and are unfailing courteous and friendly. I love its intimacy.

    You can step into this restaurant off a cobbled back street of Edinburgh and it feels like you are stepping straight into a Parisian cafe. Everything is just right. The Poussez sign to go in and the Tirez sign on the door to come out. The menu in French, the waitresses are from France (some of them) the rest are wonderful Scottish lassies. The food...

  • Skippers Bistro, Leith - closed

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Edinburgh Restaurants

    Tucked away in a quiet corner, Skippers is the original seafood restaurant in Leith, the menu subject to the day's catch of fish. Whilst dinner is a la carte featuring tempting Scottish classics, lunch provides the best of both worlds - long and relaxing or for those on a time limit, lighter and cheaper. Roasted Giant Gambas with Lemongrass, Ginger...

    This was our second Haggis outing and opted for traditional. Stumbled upon this pub while in the Grassmarket area. Nice atmosphere, good pints on offer and again, loved the Haggis! Very different than the Highland version, without the chicken and the Whiskey sauce the true flavour of the Haggis is much more evident. This dish included Neeps and...

It has a painted Bay of Naples picture all on one wall. Wooden chairs. Red and white checked tablecoths. Pictures of Sophia Lauren, Carreras, Domingo and Pavarotti, Dean...

WHISKI (formerly called "Clever Dick's") cozy atmosphere envelops you within an instant; the busy day dissipates, and you are left in a happy dreamlike state where time seems to have no meaning at all. The lighting inside is dim and...

    The Dublin Street restaurant has an intimate and very pleasant atmosphere. Built into the basement level of the building it utilises a number of the "cellars" to create an intimate feel. The decoration suits the atmosphere perfectly being a mixture of scottish art and drift wood style decor. The service was friendly at very accomodating, one table...

    We had returned to Edinburgh in the early evening after a full day coach trip and tour of the Highlands. We had a few stops during the day, but we were feeling quite hungry. It had been decided that we would do Italian, and Edinburgh does have quite a few in the central area. Although Bella Italia is part of a chain it was a good choice. It was...

    Edinburgh Restaurants

    The restaurant is situated in a wing of a museum. Sounds nice and that convinced me to ignore the bad reviews I'd read and book. Big mistake. The food is generally pretty poor - the deserts were nice but that might have been because I was left hungry by my poor quality main meal. I chose a steak, not adventurous I know, but I thought at $60 it...

    We had asked the hotel concierge "where the nearest Indian restaurant" was; he replied by saying "the nearest or the best?" - thus we ended up a distance from the hotel, but at a very good restaurant. The restaurant was comfortable, warm and welcoming. The staff were busy but very helpful and it did seem to have many regular customers dining when...

It was raining as the No 23 bus took me towards Princes Street, so being close to the bus stop and the meeting venue were key components in my choice of eating spot. I decided...

    This is probably one of the best cafes I've ever been to for its coffee. I ordered a large Americano and spent some time when I did my preparation for my university finals. I wouldn't say it's the cheapest cafe I've been to but you're certainly paying for the quality of the drinks especially coffee. There's a lovely informal/cafe setting at the...

The restaurant will be on your...
