We stopped by for a lunch and order a burger with bacon,eggs and cheese. It was far to hard grilled, almost black, as far as I’m concerned. The restaurant is nice and so is the staff.

Right in the heart of Stockbridge, Hectors is a well-known local for many residents and also for others shopping the many nearby charity shops. The food is good; the service friendly and efficient, especially if you're lucky enough to have Astin waiting on your table.More

Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling
a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s
small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s
first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s
most desirable, though many bohemian touches have
fallen away as its residents have matured and the area
has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but
mostly residents display refined tastes in basement
