Number One at The Balmoral


City Centre, Edinburgh, City of, 60-100£
19/11/2023: My self and 3 friends had a fantastic meal at number one on friday 17th november 23 . i have been lucky enough to experience some fantastic restaurants over the years .this was world class .the variety/quality /presentation /freshness /service was all exceptional .the servers were knowledgeable and professional
10/11/2023: 10 stars!! 5 doesn’t do it justice! Number One was extraordinary!!! The staff was lovely and worked in sync with each other. The evening was flawless and felt like a beautiful dance happening before our eyes! It was a ballet of food. Exquisitely executed and flavors to die for! Each course left you satisfied and wanting more! We had the three course option. I don’t know how one could eat seven courses! There are complimentary appetizers that burst with delight in your mouth. The bread was warm and the butter was a great compliment. The main course was the Shetland Salmon. We savored every bite! Next came the dessert. I chose the toffee soufflé and my husband chose the Blacketyside cherry pistachio one. Scrumptious beyond words. We ended with complimentary mini desserts! Delectable!! This restuarant is by far the best restuarant I have ever eaten in. Wish it were closer to home!! It would be a special occasion favorite if it were! The chef, thank you! Thank you for an amazing evening. Our last night at the Balmoral was truly special because of your delicious, artful creation!!!

New Chapter


Inverleith, Edinburgh, City of
19/08/2023: This was the best meal during our weeklong trip to Edinburgh. The had prepared the vegatarian options thoughtfully, making sure that they are both tasty and substantial. They were also very careful about food intolerance. The bread and herb butter combination was amazing. The service was impeccable. The only area of improvement I can think of is the dessert - we tried both items but did not enjoy them much. The strawberry dessert had a very thick and soft pastry crust - a light and crunchy one would have been much better. The posset was excessively creamy and lacked texture. Hope they improve their desserts.
17/08/2023: 조리의 완성도와 맛이 탁월합니다 식 재료에 대한 이해도가 깊습니다 홀 스탭들과 바리스타가 가져다주는 프티푸르까지 완벽. 캐주얼하면서 친절하고 모든 면에서 추천할 만 합니다

Forage & Chatter


City Centre, Edinburgh, City of
23/11/2023: We arrived having thought we had booked! Matthew greeted us to explain we had no booking but made us feel so welcome and instantly made me feel at ease for my error. The service was tremendous and the food was sublime! Great welcome and we will be back for sure. A hidden gem close to the centre of Edinburgh
11/11/2023: Second visit here, last was nearly 5 years ago. It's great to see the standard of service and food has not deteriorated. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the staff were excellent. The food all 3 courses were fantastic!!! I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a special meal in a great city!!

Aizle


Southside / Newington, Edinburgh, City of, >100£
29/01/2024: Hidden within the Kimpton hotel in a central garden room Aizle has a laid back european vibe. It only offers a set tasting menu so be bold and go with it, we tried dishes that we would not normally order and were very pleasantly surprised. And eight courses is a lot, even if each course was quite small, we struggled to finish everything. Service was friendly and informative but suggest you give yourselves time, it took four hours.
19/01/2024: We had a fantastic meal and experience. Have been lucky enough to eat at a few nice restaurants with tasting menu and matching wines in the last year and Aizle was easily the best. Menu, which is kept a bit secret, was brilliant and perfectly paced and matching wines were all superb. Really excellent meal.

Wahacas


City Centre, Edinburgh, City of
18/02/2024: Fantastic Menu full of wonderful flavours and great staff always ready to help. Thanks to Tam who serve our table and big applause to the chefs for making every plate a journey to other worlds!
18/02/2024: Have ordered delivery a few times previously, but came in for dinner prior to a show. Very pleasantly surprised for a “chain”. Much bigger than it seems from outside, and a really great ambience with current Latin music playing. Restaurant was full and busy, but service very efficient and food served promptly. Waitress was really attentive and took the time to go over menus and specials despite how busy it was. Service very good overall. We ordered a couple of cocktails each which were generously sized and priced, and very tasty - some great house choices, really enjoyed the margaritas especially. Food was all excellent, we ordered a selection of small plates and street food - all very tasty and cooked perfectly. Served tapas styles so arrives as it is made, The quality of the ingredients is really noticeable - the tacos are a favourite. Desserts really good as well and enjoyed some churros (these seem to be very popular).

Salt Cafe


Meadows / Morningside, Edinburgh, City of, <20£
20/08/2023: We booked online for a weekend brunch and seated at the cozy far end section. Price is high and portion size is not generous. Presentation of the plates are great but not the taste. Fluffy pancakes itself is typical and not amazing. But the yogurt and campote shines. Full breakfast again typical and not amazing. Only the mushroom on the plate worths to be recommended. It’s highly overrated and overpriced for the full breakfast and the pancakes. If you live nearby you might want to walk-in and try. I wouldn’t recommend to book in advance and not worthy to come across the town only for its food. There’re much better options out there.
19/08/2023: Really friendly welcome, efficient service and great food. Well worth a visit and will definitelyvisit again. Recommended

Makars Gourmet Mash


City Centre, Edinburgh, City of
04/02/2024: Staff were very accomodating and friendly. They helped us out with some late night food when we were hungry. Rae was so kind and made our whole experience amazing. Will be back soon. If not for the sensational food then for rae's amazing service.
04/02/2024: We make a point of visiting Makars every time we're in Edinburgh, and it never disappoints. Always busy so well worth making a reservation. The staff are always friendly and knowledgeable (Bev and Laura were fab) and the food is excellent.

11/12/2023: Omg, just had the most lovely night. Bit quiet as it was a rainy Monday but the food was incredible and didn't notice it was quieter as the background music was so good. Food was beautiful can't recommend highly enough, definitely one to try - stone's throw away from town and although I'm not a local have visited Edinburgh loads and spent a lot time in various establishments this has to be one of the best so far. Not to missed.

The Perch


City Centre, Edinburgh, City of
24/09/2022: Oh No! Hope this isn't true. Lovely restaurant - fresh, modern, delicious food. Would go there all the time if we lived in Edinburgh! Hope things change - the world neneds more restaurants like The Perch!
23/09/2022: A really lovely restaurant. The service was warm, efficient and welcoming. The restaurant is situated up a flight of stairs which opens into a cosy room with approx 40 covers so booking is essential. I had scallops to start with a pea purée and black pudding crumb, my husband had arancini stuffed with with neeps and tatties, delicious and a very generous portion. I had chicken with pasta and a cream and tomato sauce, my husband had a burger, both were delicious. We had a lovely evening in a local independent restaurant. Highly recommended.
