Pub Food with Reviews, Maps and Links to their websites

The Oxford Bar

8 Young Street, Edinburgh, Midlothian EH2 4JB – 0131 539 7119

Cosy and quaint, old man pub. Looks rough on the outside but is actully pretty decent.

Good drink, good food, fast service. The selections of ales is pretty large, which is good as I like beer. It's best to attempt to get a table though as there isn't really much standing space in the bar area. Staff having to squeeze past you constantly if you're in a bigger group.

Apex Waterloo Place Hotel

23-27 Waterloo Place, Edinburgh EH1 3BH – 0845 365 0000

The hotel was perfect for me and my girlfriend it made our stay in Edinburgh extra special. The bed was big and the bathroom was lovely. The staff were friendly and could not do enough for us. Definitely staying back next time we visit Edinburgh!

Is gorgeous. I've stayed here twice on business now. Used the spa for the first time tonight and it's just right. :)

Le Monde Hotel

16 George Street, Edinburgh EH2 2PF – 0131 270 3900

Classy restaurant and bar that is one of the busiest nightspots in Edinburgh at the weekends. They have a fantastic range of drinks available with loads of cocktails, spirits and even some local craft beer as well. Their whisky collection is decent which surprised me. They do breakfast, lunch and dinner in the restaurant. I can’t speak about their lunch or dinner but their breakfast is ok. Not an amazing selection on offer, all very standard and run-of-the-mill. Very nice surroundings though for dining but at weekends it will get very busy early so if you want a table you will have to phone up to reserve. The place is quite relaxed during the day but gets a lot more lively as the night goes on. And later it is good laugh if you’re there with a group and have a table. However it’s your typical George Street venue with cheesy music, pretentious (then later drunk) people and very expensive drinks. If that’s your thing then you’ll like the place.

Much like Tigerlily, from what I have experienced, the drinks are great and the atmosphere is OK. I have given Le Monde 'the benefit of the doubt' many times, but it's never gotten better (for me). The last time was there, the only reason it was better is because I was with a former employee who had colleague discount. If you enjoy a cocktail with little atmosphere on a Saturday night - pay a visit.

The Witchery by the Castle

Castlehill, The Royal Mile, Edinburgh EH1 2NF – 0131 225 5613

Stunning place. Great place, great food. I would eat there everyday, if it was slightly cheaper. But definitely an unforgettable experience.

My husband and I had lunch at the lovely Witchery restaurant, to celebrate my birthday, which we had flown to Edinburgh from Southampton especially for and we were not disappointed! The food was excellent, as was the atmosphere. The service was friendly and very attentive without being clinical and robotic, like you find in some of the Michelin Star restaurants. It was well priced and a great experience.

The Kitchin

78 Commercial Quay, Edinburgh EH6 6LX – 0131 555 1755

Not cheap, but incredible value, especially for lunch. Treat yourself - easily one of the best places to eat in Edinburgh, if not all of Scotland.

very good but very expensive. did a lunch deal but thtas as much as i would want to spend. great for a special ocassion at lunch but the dinner prices wouldnt interest us.

Chinese Restaurants

Ping On Chinese Restaurant

26-32 Deanhaugh Street, Edinburgh EH4 1LY – 0131 332 3621

Based on the reviews I went for the spicy chicken wing starter and it was amazing. Rest of the order was spot on too.

Pretty nice Chinese restaurant, which also does takeaway. Traditionally styled interior, and polite, efficient staff. One of the better sit-in Chinese restaurants in town.

Loon Fung

1-2 Warriston Place, Edinburgh, Midlothian EH3 5LE – 0131 556 1781

A step above your average Chinese take away. Good range of dishes, with no gloopy, brightly coloured sauces here. My favourite is the crispy beef in child sauce. It's delicious and just spicy enough - not dried out like you get at some takeaways. It's more expensive than other takeaways but you get what you pay for in this case. Can eat in or take away.

Really good I like deep crispy chicken in chilly sause. Staff are very pleasant my friend and i go there a lot, my favourite xx

Rendezvous Chinese Restaurant

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

Ate here while staying in Edinburgh overnight. No booking but they fitted us in OK. The food was good, the atmosphere pleasant and the prices reasonable. No complaints!

This is a nice Chinese restaurant in the west end of the city centre. The menu offers the standard Chinese options however it is cooked superbly with fresh ingredients. The food was not greasy at all and there was plenty of it. The decoration inside is lovely and cosy and the staff are very friendly. The takeaway service is also very good we only had to wait 20 minutes before we could pick up our order. I would highly recommend trying this Chinese in particular the honey ribs and shredded chilli chicken .

Ended up here for a work meal out. Nice curry and very friendly service. Just a short walk to a number of nice Leith bars.

Mother India's Cafe

3-5 Infirmary Street, Old Town, Edinburgh EH1 1LT – 0131 524 9801

A beautiful plethora of dishes none of which disappoint in flavour and presentation. I highly recommend the lamb dishes (basil coriander lamb or lamb saag), the sauces are creamy and the lamb tender. To top it off the service was fast and the atmosphere buzzing. You know you've found a good Indian restaurant when you open the door and your mouth starts watering!

Well, cold midweek Wednesday it was quite quiet. It's not huge (although there may be a downstairs) but modern and clean. Friendly staff supplied the mandatory large Cobra and off we went. Prawn puri starter was luverly, four small puri around the edge of a fresh crisp prawn mix, Sir Walter Scott's lamb/mustard curry warmed the cockles, the lamb so tender and a rich sauce. The garlic nan defeated me in the end. The physical menus could do with a reprint, they're falling apart, but overall I loved it, the food that bit different and carefully prepared, served well in a great atmosphere. Visit. PS right by the tram stop.

Italian Pasta and Pizza Restaurants

Gusto Edinburgh

135 George Street, Edinburgh, Midlothian EH2 4JS – 0131 225 2555

I've been here for dinner a few times and I'm always very impressed with the standard of food. I went with friends last Christmas Eve. The staff were excellent. I ordered the tuna steak and when all the other guests were served I was told the chef felt it was overcooked and recooked it. To me this is exactly how restaurants should operate. When I got the tuna it was perfectly cooked and was a huge portion. Don't forget to save room for the nutty calzone, the best dessert I've ever had. Make sure you sign up to their online loyalty scheme which offers discount in any of the Gusto restaurants. It's free to sign up too.

Great atmospheric Italian restaurant at the west end of George street. Great if looking to go for dinner somewhere central and enjoy a few drinks as well. Quality of food is very good and plenty to select from. Service is good but prices are maybe quite expensive for an Italian, maybe due to its prime location. Best thing about the restaurant I feel is the atmosphere as it is always busy and always feels as though there is a buzz in the place. Now with some of George street shut off to traffic there is an area outside that you can sit at which is very nice.

Amarone Edinburgh

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

The positives were service was good, nice decor and a good range of dishes on the menu. Their 2-course lunch menu has lots of good options. Unfortunately, the food was a mixed result. My fellow diner had muscles (good) and sea bass (a bit bland and slightly overdone). I had bread with peppers (bread was a bit overdone) and risotto (it was fine). That is why I have rated this as ok. The food was ok. There are sometimes when an ok restaurant is what you want and others when you want a bit more.

Had a very lovely meal to celebrate a year with my girlfriend and she loved it so much she said it was the best meal she ever had i loved my food as well. Staff we greet and helpful and polite would go again next time i visit edinburgh

Vittoria Restaurant

113 Brunswick Street, Edinburgh, Midlothian EH7 5HR – 0131 556 6171

My favourite Italian in Edinburgh. Atmosphere in the place is great and the waiters/waitresses are what makes this restaurant what it is. Always accommodating with great sense of humour. Great restaurant for a relaxed, chilled out Italian meal. Food is delicious. Strange layout as there are several seating areas so ask for a good table.

Easily my Italian favourite restaurant in town, friendly attentive waiting staff, warm friendly welcoming atmosphere, and excellent well-prepared delicious food. The Tortellini and the Deluxe Pizza are two which I go back to time and time again, which is almost a shame given there's so much good food on the menu. If you like Italian food, I'd recommend this place.

Vegetarian or Vegan Restaurants

Hendersons

94 Hanover Street, Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh EH2 1DR – 0131 225 2131

Best vegetarian meal I've had in a long time. The atmosphere was lovely as well since the live music was a nice touch without being too loud. I could actually carry out a conversation while enjoying the guitarist. Would be rating it higher if the food wasn't so pricey for small portions. The main courses were big enough but the starters were a little small. The bruschetta, for example, only came with one piece which I've never seen before in my life. But it was a damn good one piece of bruschetta :)

Awesome food. Went for dinner and had the vegan haggis, went back the next day for lunch and had some of the specials and desserts. Highly recommend for veggies and omnis alike

David Bann Restaurant

56-58 Saint Mary's Street, Edinburgh EH1 1SX – 0131 556 5888

On recommendation, we ate lunch at David Bann and were impressed by respective main courses. Nice flavours, well presented and in a timely way. The experience was let down by poor service and below average desserts. We weren't offered further drinks after our arrival and had to hunt down a member of staff to request coffees, after sitting around waiting for almost 30 minutes. The desserts were a real disappointment. My ginger and lime ice-cream lacked the 'bite' anticipated and the accompanying orange cake was a rather sad, squashed looking affair. Certainly not the flourish we'd hope to end our meal on. We did mention this to a member of staff and it was inferred that it was our problem as everyone else 'raves' about them.

This is a quite upmarket restaurant. Nice atmosphere, very creative and tasty vegetarian food. Highly recommended.

Bay of Bengal Indian & Thai Restaurant

164 High Street, Edinburgh EH1 1QS – 0131 225 2361

if you like Indian food please Try THE TAJ restaurant in 10 Carlton Parade Orpington Kent BR6 0JB open seven days a week Monday to Saturday 5.30PM to 11.30PM and Sunday 5.30PM to 11.00PM

Came here for a late night curry with the bf. Really liked the staff, I know that's strange but they had an authentic feel to them. An old guy serving as a waiter and an even older guy serving as manager. They made a good floor show. The restaurant offers a prix fixe but on closer inspection, it wasn't what we wanted and we opted for the regular menu. They gave us poppadums and sauces to start us off and immediately I was worried about the size of the sides sauces and dips. They were huge and the first thing I wondered about was not if I would be too full up but what was their policy on double dipping? Were they cleaned out and refilled in between diners? I tried not to dwell on it and nibbled my poppadums. The main curry, a prawn dansak, was delicious, oh my I could have eaten it twice over! The service from the two old guys was sweet and attentive. I wouldn't hesitate to visit again, but now i've thought about the dips, i'd refrain from them!

Wine Bars and Cocktail Bars

Browns Edinburgh

131 George Street, Edinburgh EH2 – 0131 225 4442

Nice centrally located restaurant on George street. Food was good and service was alright. Perhaps a little expensive for what you get but maybe that's due to its location. Always busy and always has a buzz in the place. Now with some of George street shut off to traffic there is an area outside that you can sit at which is very nice. I would recommend booking ahead especially at the weekend as it can be very busy at times.

Get a window seat and enjoy a home made main and dessert. Best time to visit is on a week day (lunchtime) as it is quieter and you get superb service (they always seem so attentive). Best meal: Fish dishes Best drink: Wine always Best for: couples and friends, not wee kiddies. Definitely, for special occasions Prices: surprisingly reasonable especially for the George Street crowd

The Newsroom Bar & Eatery

5-11 Leith Street, Edinburgh, Midlothian EH1 3AT – 0131 557 5830

I’m a regular to this place as we quite often go to the quiz night here on a Thursday night. It definitely is one of the best quiz nights that we’ve tried as there’s always a lively atmosphere in the place. Decent drinks selection available and there is decent pub grub available at reasonable prices too. Drinks aren’t cheap but that’s to be expected in such a central location. Great place to go after work for a few pints, highly recommended.

Always wanted to visit this place because of the cool lights it has in the window. Went in for lunch for the first time and the waitress we had was lovely and so approachable. I ordered vegetable soup not expecting anything special but it was amazing! And for some reason it stayed hot right to the last spoonful - don't know how they achieved that but it really was lovely. Reasonably priced too. Definitely go there again!

All Bar One Exchange Plaza

50 Lothian Road, Edinburgh EH3 9BY – 0131 221 7951

It's a chain, so if you've been in one of these before you know what to expect. Basically an upmarket Wetherspoons, which is a bit like calling a Burger King an upmarket McDonalds. Still, if that's your thing, this place does it well, and it is located five minutes from the centre of town anyway, if you fancy moving on.

I prefer this all bar one of the two we have in Edinburgh, it has a much more London feel, could be to do with all the suits who converge here post work for drinks. It's a mixed crowd and always a good atmosphere. There's a great outside bit to sit when Edinburgh decides to shine on its residents. It's one of the largest terraces i've noticed in Edinburgh. Again, food is good pub food, and wine selection great. Located right next to the square outside the Sheraton Hotel, with its big TV screen, ideal for lazy summer sport watching.
