GO Budget Restaurants in Edinburgh

Budget Restaurants in Edinburgh A visit to Edinburgh doesn’t have to be expensive. There’s a range of great eateries that prove to be excellent value for money.

One of Edinburgh’s most famous budget restaurants is Howies, which has four venues in Edinburgh located on Victoria Street, Glanville Place, Bruntsfield Place, and Waterloo Place. Each Howies has its own unique style but a contemporary theme runs throughout.

34 Valvona & Crolla [map] has been voted in the top 40 of The Guardian’s budget restaurant list. This light bright and airy restaurant on Elm Row is a great value place to take the whole family – including the children – for a wide variety of Italian home cooking. Whether you’re into pizza, pasta, antipasti, soup, salad or meat and fish dishes, there’s sure to be something on the menu here.

Over on Potters Row The Wok Bar is the best place for a variety of Asian dishes. Offering everything from Thai to Malaysian and Indonesian to Korean, this lively place proves an excellent eatery for young groups or couples who want a vibrant place to begin their evening.

Ndebele [map] on Home Street serves some of the best African food in Scotland. There may be queues to get into this popular venue but it’s well worth the wait and the friendly staff are on hand to advise you what to eat to suit your preferences.

If you’re looking for a top value lunch pop over to Susie’s Diner [map] on West Nicolson Street. This is the place for large helpings of vegetarian fayre and a chilled out environment in which to relax and soak up the bustling atmosphere.

Visit Santini Bis [map], Conference Square, for light and high energy food. It’s the little sister of Edinburgh’s famous Santini Restaurant [map] and the smaller bistro offers the same quality selection of fine Italian food at real bargain prices. In the summer there’s al fresco dining accompanied by jazz music.

If al fresco particularly appeals check out The Pear Tree [map] , West Nicolson Street. This traditional pub offers a large beer garden which is ideal for those wanting to combine the outdoors with traditional wholesome food. This is a particularly popular student haunt and this creates a very chilled out and friendly atmosphere.

Go for authentic at Bert’s Bar [map], a traditional Scottish pub on William Street. Bert’s serves a variety of tasty pies and sandwiches and there’s also a large selection of real ales and excellent beers.
