Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Edinburgh

Howies Restaurant

10-14 Victoria St, Edinburgh EH1 2HG, UK – 0131 225 1721

I wanted to get away from the crowds on the Royal Mile so I stopped in here to get a late lunch/early dinner. Didn't have to wait long to get a table as I was on my own. It's a cozy spot and the staff is friendly. Everything I ordered was well made, beautiful and tasted great. I wouldn't hesitate to go back again.

One of the best meals I have had in a long time. Could not fault it one bit. My wife and I had the fillet steak and it was cooked to perfection. We also had starters and desserts as well as beer and wine. They do a two course meal deal which was very reasonably priced but it didn't apply to the steak. The atmosphere was relaxed and cosy which fitted with the location. Staff were great too, very attentive even though it was so busy. In all it came to just over £100 including service which was well worth it. Can't recommend it enough and will certainly return, possibly for lunch tomorrow.

Blonde Restaurant

71-75 St. Leonard's St, Edinburgh EH8 9QR, UK – 0131 668 2917

Went here for a Sunday evening meal as a family group of 4 on the strength of reviews, and we were not disappointed. The decor and lighting is pleasant and modern. We all chose from the bargain menu, the options were varied enough for all our tastes, the portions generous (or standard? Not small anyway) and the food delicious. The single hardworking waitress provided good service, and our food orders arrived swiftly. We'll be back, found a new favourite restaurant!

Had tried once and decided to take my parents who come and visit Edinburgh to try again. Very cozy and delicious food. Pretty Scottish. Good service as well. Offer free freshly baked bread.

Tower Restaurant

National Museum of Scotland, Chambers St, Edinburgh EH1 1JF, UK – 0131 225 3003

Now this could have been amazing. Could have been. Longest day of the year. Great table watching the sun kiss the rooftops of the city. 30 minutes later we managed to order some drinks. Had to explain what a Kir was to two staff. Half the drinks we ordered arrived and we cracked into ordering. Service was very hit and miss. Food was great see attached pics but honestly expensive as golden hens teeth. My crab was fine but I'd have liked some claws for £21. I was not sure if this was trying to be something it couldn't quite deliver. We came here to celebrate and kind of felt we had to pay a lot to get everyone else on board. Managed to swap my fish sauces off the menu so the kitchen delivers but front of house needs to up it's game...

My friends and I came upon The Tower during a walking tour in Edinburgh and decided to book a reservation. It seemed like a neat location for a fine dining establishment and it had a unique view. The food was delicious but we were surprised that the service was really lacking. No one ever returned to pour wine (and we’d bought a very very expensive bottle) not did the waiter ever ask if everything was okay with our food. It was very odd. Pricey. Tasty. But they pretty much put stuff on your table and then never talk to you again. 5 Star food. 3 star service (if that) averaging to a 4.
