Edinburgh Pubs & Restaurants

Edinburgh's centre of gastronomic gravity has been shifting gradually north for several years and the historic port of Leith is now home to three of the city's four Michelin stars. Leith also has many good non-Michelin-starred restaurants, clustered around the Shore area and the Scottish Government building. Fans of fish and seafood, in particular, would be well advised to make the pilgrimage down Leith Walk. Of course there are still many good restaurants in the city centre and the New Town, as well as neighbourhood bistros in more out-of-the-way corners.

Edinburgh Restaurants

Bell's Diner
Small and popular Stockbridge restaurant which has been satisfying Edinburgh's yearnings for burgers for nearly 40 years. Steaks and veggie-burgers are also available, but it is the char-grilled beef-burgers, with their various savoury butters, which are the real highlights in this unpretentious, simply furnished place.

Hub Cafe & Restaurant
The Hub, Edinburgh's iconic landmark, towers over the heart of the world's leading festival city, gloriously dominating the skyline on the Royal Mile between Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace. This unique and spectacular venue is a stunning combination of award winning contemporary design and classic Victorian architecture. The Hub's interior pulsates with colour, light and creative ideas as befits the home of the Edinburgh International Festival. Full of style and verve, The Hub is a dramatic and dynamic environment for your event, whether business or celebration.

The Café Royal
Originally dating back to 1826, The Café Royal stood just across the road from the present building and was known for its dining room special - oysters. In 1863 The Royal moved to its new location in this stylish Parisian building, designed by local architect Robert Paterson. Entering The Café Royal is like taking a step back in time with its stained glass, murals, mirrors and wood panelings. Taste Scottish produce at its best in the fantastically atmospheric Circle Bar - sample a selection of Scottish cask ales, malt whiskies and why not try our home smoked delights, not forgetting the best oysters and mussels in town. Our restaurant offers a great selection of choices too - please see our restaurant page for more details. The Café Royal has recently been recommended on Simonseeks.com, a travel website where a community of travellers, journalists and celebrities can share their Holiday Reviews. Jules Morgan, who is a travel enthusiast, has written a guide for Simonseeks.com called 'Edinburgh: My 5 Top Hotels, with photos & a wee video'. In this guide Jules has described The Café Royal as having "excellent pub food and stunning historic wood work".
