GO Fine Dining In Edinburgh

Fine Dining in Edinburgh If you’re planning on upping the budget and doing your dining in style you’ll be impressed with the range of quality award-winning restaurants in Edinburgh.

Begin your search for the very best in Edinburgh’s Georgian New Town. This is where the famous Haldanes Restaurant [map] is located. This elegant and intimate venue brings together classical and innovative dishes using West Coast seafood, Scottish beef, lamb and game. There’s an extensive wine and malt whisky list too. If you’re looking for that extra touch of Scottish hospitality the Haldanes, on Albany Street, should appeal.

Combine dining with celeb-spotting and check out the restaurant at The Howard Hotel. Diners including Sean Connery, Elton John and Cliff Richard have experienced the finest Scottish cuisine in The Atholl Restaurant [map], which is centrally located in the Georgian hotel on Great King Street.

Scotland and Spain might not seem a likely combination but Scottish beef and tapas are comfortable bedfellows at Iggs Restaurant [map], Jeffrey Street, which serves a range of local and continental cuisine. The restaurant has a cosmopolitan bar – Barioja – next door, which is famed for its larger than life atmosphere.

Stay on the tourist trail and book your table at The Witchery by The Castle [map]. This old town restaurant is located at the entrance to Edinburgh Castle, Castlehill, The Royal Mile, and offers a large dining area plus al fresco dining in summer evenings on the heated terrace.

The Witchery uses the very best of Scotland’s produce including Angus beef, lamb, game and seafood and draws locals, visitors and celebrities who arrive in droves to sample James Thomson’s award-winning cuisine.

Above the Museum of Scotland, The Tower Restaurant [map] offers stunning views of Edinburgh Castle and the city’s skyline. The Tower is a modern and luxurious venue specialising in seafood and grills with a long wine list to compliment any meal.

If sophistication is on the menu pay a visit to one of the hottest restaurants in Edinburgh. The Atrium [map], Cambridge Street, has a contemporary feel to it and offers diners a winning combination of traditional Scottish cuisine with a twist and Mediterranean speciality dishes. Recent diners include Jack Nicholson and Mick Jagger and this is definitely the place to be seen in.
