We were visiting Edinburgh for the week and tried to book this restaurant .It was in demand but we eventually got a booking. The welcome was warm and very friendly and the restaurant is small and intimate. My husband had the mushrooms to start and I had king prawns which were delicious. After reading some reviews we opted for the... More

Last minute booking and so glad we got in. We had Aberdeen Angus steaks but could have had anything on the menu. Small intimate restaurant with very hospitable staff and unpretentious atmosphere.

We dined in this lovely small restaurant on our last visit to Edinburgh. We were lucky to get a seat as we didn't book and had to catch our train to London in an hour and a half but, boy, so glad we got to lunch here. The food is FAB! Gorgeous homemade soup to start with crusty bread and... More

Me and the wife travelled to the truly beautiful city of Edinburgh to visit some friends, who lived near us whilst we were living in London, but now reside in Scotland. They took us to this rather fine restaurant the Wildfire. We were warmly greeted and shown to our table. After dining here we found the quality of the food... More

We booked this about 10 days in advance, it is really small with a nice atmosphere with only 10 or so tables. Really lovely steaks on the menu. Cooked well. The crumble for desert was nice but lacked crumble (was pretty much just fruit) We really enjoyed our meal and would go back. Service was good even though it was... More

This restaurant is small and quaint, offering fantastic food and service. The mussels were lovely and the steak was also great, even though the restaurant only seats 25 people the atmosphere was brilliant

Had a lovely meal in this small restaurant with a limited menu, its thankfully not one of those places with an extensive menu running to 10 plus pages. Portions are quite large so neither of us could cope with 3 courses settling for just a starter and main each. The Cullen Skink starter was lovely and creamy with lots of... More

We were lucky to get a table at the restaurant as most the tables were already booked but the waitress was able to squeeze us in . I had the goats cheese crostini to start which was delicious as was the lamb & rosemary casserole which was a special of the day. My husband had the sea bream which he... More

I was surprised how small it was but the warmth of service and the beautiful food more than made up of the lack of space and glitz. Highly recommended, but book ahead, it is popular.

We only just managed to get an early booking, and we're so glad we did. We both had the ribeye and I went for surf & turf. The steaks were cooked to absolute perfection and tasted heavenly even before the sauce. The king prawns were excellent - large, succulent and firm. Having paid a small fortune at Goodmans in London... More

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
