Pub Food with Reviews, Maps and Links to their websites

The Mitre Bar

131-133 High Street, Edinburgh EH1 1SG, UK – 0131 652 3902

Fabulous. Classic Scottish pub fare served in a classic setting on the royal mile. We were seated in a beautiful old world glass-and-wooden booth, and had traditional pies-venison and port, steak, and chicken. All were exceptional, as was the service. Sticky toffee pudding sealed the deal. A sticky thumbs up!

Good selection of ales and good staff.

The Last Drop

74-78 Grassmarket, Edinburgh, Midlothian EH1 2JR, UK – 0131 225 4851

Not the best in the area but ok. Staff were friendly. Food looked pricey to me.

My wife had an amazingly tenderand juicy grilled chicken and bacon sandwich. I ate an awesome prime rib sandwich. Food was well priced and service was great.

The Bow Bar

80 W Bow, Edinburgh EH1 2HH, UK – 0131 226 7667

Described as the last of the old school pubs in Edinburgh. Good mix of tourists and locals. Decent range of beers. Good service in such a busy pub. No frills experience.

Large selection, but typically high tourist prices. Don't drink your nicest whisky here. Bartenders were fine but not that friendly. No food, which is a downer. I wouldn't come back.

Gusto Edinburgh

135 George St, Edinburgh EH2 4JS, UK – 0131 225 2555

The risotto was very good, the best I've eaten. Very good service together with a calm and nice vibe throughout the whole evening made for an excellent experience.

I was there on Saturday nite and really enjoyed the food. Some of the waiters are really hot!! Especially the one wearing a blue suit. Do order the creamy mash potato and fried zucchini.. There are awesome.. And the steak with aubergine sauce!! Do book a table on Saturday nite as it does get busy.


1 George IV Bridge, Edinburgh EH1 1AD, UK – 0131 240 1666

Cucina's lunch menu is delicious, modern and affordable. The selection of dishes is very good and certainly suited my needs. Haven't been there for dinner, but the place was really beautiful and I am sure it would be a great place to go with your significant other... Or just for lunch or dinner with friends.

Awesome colorful atmosphere, modern feel, relaxing music and great food.

Contini Ristorante

103 George St, Edinburgh EH2 3ES, UK – 0131 225 1550

Dishes are quite small, and quite expensive. Service staff are fine, though not as friendly and warm as other Scottish restaurants. Location and ambience are very good though. The building itself is impressive.

Meticulous service, with great food and excellent atmosphere.

Chinese Restaurants serving the Edinburgh area

Saigon Saigon

14 S St Andrew St, Edinburgh EH2 2AZ, UK – 0131 557 3737

Good good, nice staff. You will never run out of tea as they keep refilling the pot ;).

Eaten here a few times, food is always good, sometimes exceptional. Service is great and the location is enjoyable

Rendezvous Chinese Restaurant

10a Queensferry St, Edinburgh EH2 4PG, UK – 0131 225 2023

I have visited this restaurant off and on for about thirty years and it is always reliable. The food is good quality and nicely served. Staff friendly and attentive. Food and wine fairly priced for city centre Edinburgh. Always worth a return visit.

Beautiful meals, just so tasty! I had only have it as takeaway, it is not like a super fast service but the wait is worth.

Karens Unicorn Chinese Restaurant Edinburgh

8b Abercromby Pl, New town, Edinburgh EH3 6LB, UK – 0131 556 6333

We visited Edinburgh for few days and this Chinese restaurant just blew our mind how good it was. The staff was incredibly nice and professional, the food was amazing and the prices still reasonable. If you are ever in Edinburgh, make sure to visit

Decent Chinese meal but a little inconsistent in the quality. The honey char sui is good and the egg fried rice is fantastic.

Indian Restaurants and takeaways in or near Edinburgh

Kasturi Indian Restaurant

35-37 Shandwick Pl, Edinburgh EH2 4RG, UK – 0131 228 2441

I must say , if you are a connoisseur like me and in Edinburgh , looking forward for delicious Indian/Bangladeshi food and drinks @ economical rate then Kasturi restaurant is the must place to visit . Especially , I should say the 4 course business lunch menu is perfect and indeed its value for money . @ Manager : Looking forward for more varieties in side dishes/Mains ;) . Right from Starters to desserts everything I find here is very delicious . Ambience out here will make you feel energetic and hospitality is really appreciable . Recommended place for Indian cuisine in Edinburgh city center .

Was there with my family and friends on Tuesday 15th March for Dinner. The vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes were fantastic. The manager was very helpful and accommodating to my requests. The breads (Naan, Tandoor Roti and Pilaf) were very well done. My guests especially loved the starter which was a platter of fish, chicken and prawn tandoori items. The ambience was also cosy. Will definitely go back to Kasturi when I fly to Edinburgh.

Indian Lounge Restaurant

129 Rose St, Edinburgh EH2 3DT, UK – 0131 226 2862

Tasty food, helpful staff, will tone down chilli for you, great menu, authentic Indian food, they serve Alcohol, free wifi, open for lunch & dinner, special price menu, etc. It used to be called Mogul & later Shanaz by previous owner. I had my engagement meal there in 1983.

Full flavoured dishes with good attentive service. Had to wait for a table but it was worth the wait. It was festival time, so understandable.

Shezan Indian Cuisine

25 Union Pl, Edinburgh EH1 3NQ, UK – 0131 557 5098

The whole service from start to finish was excellent food is very nice tasty presented well , the decor is good clean staff very friendly ... And easy access out side to park car on meter ... I have enjoyed my visit .

Brilliant food, reasonable prices, and extremely friendly staff. Very impressed by the meal we had here and the staff made us feel very welcome. Highly recommended and worthy of any awards they've won.

Italian Pasta and Pizza Restaurants

Meticulous service, with great food and excellent atmosphere.

Jamie's Italian Edinburgh

The Assembly Rooms, 54 George Street, Edinburgh EH2 2LR, UK – 0131 202 5452

This was our first visit to a Jamies Italian restaurant and we were very surprised at the quality of the products aswell as the presentation. The staff very friendly and professional and we were impressed at the decor in the restaurant. As we say up north, cheap as chips. Really recommend this restaurant to anybody.

Any time we see a Jamie's kitchen, my wife and I are stopping. Always great, fresh food and friendly service. Haven't had a bad meal here.


12-13 St Andrew Square, Edinburgh EH2 2AF, UK – 0131 523 1171

Handy location from Waverley Train Station. Met with friends for drinks and light snacks. Staff all very friendly, offered to put tables together to sit three couples with two babies and a toddler in tow. Baby change available, would be helpful if you have a chair in the disabled toilet in order for mum's to nurse.

Excellent food and excellent service. Highly recommended.

Vegetarian or Vegan Restaurants

David Bann Restaurant

56-58 St Mary's St, Edinburgh EH1 1SX, UK – 0131 556 5888

Always head to David Banns when in Edinburgh as it's a delight. Casual, but at the same time feels like a special meal out. Staff are always friendly and the atmosphere is relaxing. This time I ate the fritters with banana for starter and the pancakes for main, both were quite unusual flavour combinations.

Excellent flavours. Cooked well and friendly staff. Nice atmosphere. A bit pricey but worth it.


94 Hanover St, Edinburgh EH2 1DR, UK – 0131 225 2131

We went to the spacious cafe underneath the deli. Service was quick and efficient. My partner had the Thai burger and salad, which he said was delicious and filling. I had the pepper quiche, equally filling and tasty. Next time I want to try the haggis. There's a great choice on the chalkboard menu, and lots of cakes. Both the flapjack and carrot cake were ok. Coffee is from a machine and not the nicest available in a city with lots of proper artisan style coffee shops. Seems very popular here with constant flow of customers, even though we were here mid afternoon. Will definitely return.

What a great place. Has some old world charm. Nice vegetarian menu, attentive staff, clearly popular with some loyal customers. I enjoyed the live music. If you go there, please remember to applaud as they were so appreciative of the positive feedback. I've been here a number of times and would go back again.

Novapizza Vegetarian Kitchen

42 Howe St, Edinburgh EH3 6TH, UK – 0131 237 5695

This place is AMAZING. Seriously can't recommend it enough. I stumbled upon this restaurant while I was walking around and found this place on google maps. Decided to go for it since we were already around the area and wouldn't want to walk all the way again. GLAD we did. There wasn't much written about it but I was still very excited. A vegetarian and vegan restaurant. Serving italian food oh my lord. I scanned through the menu. I knew that I should always have low expectations to avoid disappointments but boy, I was shivering with excitement from learning about all of the choices I had. My mom wasn't so fond of vegan food so she wasn't interested in ordering.. I ordered the Cesare Pizza and Lasagne. Both VEGAN. We had to wait a little but when the dishes came... oh my, they looked BEAUTIFUL. Even my mom was pleasantly surprised. The pizza was a generous portion size and huge for someone coming from SE Asia. I was expecting a small lasagna but nope, it was a good size as well! Pizza was 9£ and lasagna 8 if I'm not mistaken. They were honestly so SO GOOD!!! Even my mom ended up enjoying sharing the meal with me. This is coming from someone who is used to mocking me about how vegan food look and taste like lol. The pizza and lasagna taste real authentic and the pizza had a crisp rustic crust. They were both very filling. You could tell that they made their food with care and love. We decided to leave some leftovers for my sister who couldn't make it. So they gladly packed them into a box for us. They had specials during that day. Vegan cheesecakes for 4/5£ depending on the flavour. And also raw Tiramisu which also sounded delicious. And a chocolate calzone. Honestly i wish i could eat everything haha. Ordered the Coconut Cheesecake. The server told me that they had toppings and recommended that the caramel sauce would go well with it. It came on the side which was perfect as I was afraid it might have been too sweet (every dessert I had in Edinburgh has been extremely too sweet for my and family's liking). I sprinkled some of the caramel and took my first bite. *drumroll* It was -- HEAVEN. No words to describe how delicious it was! Angels were singing at the back of my head. It was not too sweet, creamy, the perfect amount of coconut.. Just a perfect creation. My mother tried it and she herself was shocked, again! Coming from someone who always complained about missing cheeses, and loves cheesecake. She LOVED this! We enjoyed sharing and slowly savoring each bite. This restaurant definitely deserves more people and recognition. Not because it is vegetarian and vegan friendly but because they truly serve good food even for the non-vegetarians. Prices were reasonable and much cheaper than eating at the centre. Food is delicious. Friendly staff. With all of the money spent on the previous restaurants, I would have LOVED to spend all of it here instead. In fact, we are so pleased that we will be coming back again the next day! Food you can seriously enjoy without any guilt. Comfortable environment. Smiling faces. Won't burn holes in your wallet. Nothing could make this experience any better! I wish we had this over at our country! Thank you all so much for this experience. Big hugs and love from Malaysia ♡

Fantastic pizza and brilliant service! 100% recommended to all lovers of pizza and pasta! Will visit here again next time I am in the city. Furthermore, the menu has as many vegan options as vegetarian, a rare gem!

Wine Bars and Cocktail Bars

All Bar One George Street

29 George St, Edinburgh EH2 2PA, UK – 0131 226 9971

Our table wasn't cleared of glasses from previous customers. The food was tasty but portions were on the small side for the price. It was ok. We were told the AA membership discount "doesn't work" so no 20% discount as advertised (by AA). Worked fine in Toby Carvery.

The place is lovely and the staff super friendly, I think the food was very average and the cocktails ok... but if what you are looking for is afterword drinks (beer and good wine) with a good atmosphere this is the right place


15 Charlotte Ln, Edinburgh EH2 4QZ, UK – 0131 225 6060

Went for lunch with a group from work. The food was nice and the soundtrack (80s/90s music with a beat) was fun. It was clean and comfortable. The service was friendly if a little slow, especially for an office lunch (and only a couple of other tables taken). It's not a place I'd take kids, with naked pin-up style graphics on the condiment bottles and even on the blackboard roof but it's a comfortable atmosphere for adults.

I went to Sygn with my wife early this week and have to say it was one of the best eating experiences of my life! The bar/restaurant itself was very clean and tidy and decorated well. The staff were second to none, quite possibly the highest level of service there could be! And as for the food, well lets just say that I would rank as possibly the 3rd best experience of my life, behind my marriage and birth of my children (although depending on their behaviour on any given day it might slip into second place!!). I would highly recommend Sygn whether your looking for a bite to eat or just a nice place to grab a drink and if you do I would suggest the Depeche mode cocktail!

Whiski Rooms

4-7 North Bank Street, Edinburgh EH1 2LP, UK – 0131 225 7224

Excellent selection of whisky and beers, as well as a good selection of wines. The whisky tasting experience is both informative and fun, as the guides have strong banter. Food is tasty, well portioned and reasonably priced considering how centrally The Whiski Rooms is located. The whisky flights are a great way to taste a selection of whisky too.

Fantastic selection of whisky. Beautifully appointed bar. Excellent views. Great attached shop with knowledgeable staff. Recommended!
