“There is only one difference between a long life and a good dinner: that, in the dinner, the sweets come last.” – Robert Louis Stevenson
Whether you call it dinner, supper or tea there is no doubt that after a long day exploring Edinburgh you are going to want something good to eat, here is where we recommend.
Makars : Mon - Thu : 12 – 8:30pm, Fri-Sat : 12 – 9:30pm, Sun : 12 - 8pm
Makars Gourmet Mash Bar
have a simple goal to demonstrate that there is much more to Scottish cuisine than the deep fried mars bar. Their restaurant is located centrally on the Mound. Because of this it is nice and easy to find. They serve a wide variety of comfort food and do one of the best haggis dishes in town. They have a strong commitment to high quality local food and great atmosphere. This means they are a hit with the locals and those visiting from further away.
The Tower Restaurant : Sun - Thu : 10am – 10pm, Fri-Sat : 10am – 10:30pm
The Tower Restaurant is fine dining at its best. The restaurant is located on the top floor of the National Museum of Scotland. Because of this prime location you get sweeping views over the Old Town and up to the Castle. There may be cheaper places to eat in Edinburgh but none as memorable. We absolutely recommend a visit here for special occasions.
The Mussel Inn : Mon - Thu : 12 – 3pm, 5:30pm – 10pm, Fri - Sat : 12 – 10pm, Sun 12:30 – 10pm
The Mussel Inn
is an award winning seafood restaurant in the New Town. Because of it's dedication to fresh produce it has become a popular venue for seafood lovers. We recommend you try the fish chowder and a kilo pot of mussels. The restaurant also have a very good pre-theatre menu and is located just a short walk from the Edinburgh Playhouse. Don't worry if you are not keen on seafood. They also offer steaks, burgers and vegetarian options.
