Edinburgh New Town Restaurants

Edinburgh's New Town restaurants are perfect for shoppers and leisurely lunchers. With some gorgeous Georgian architecture, the New Town lays claim to some of Edinburgh's biggest shops and more popular cultural institutions, so it's little surprise it's also packed with everything from tranquil restaurants to bustling cafes.

Scottish cuisine can be found on many New Town menus, but you'll also be able to uncover everything from Cajun dining to Italian and French choices on its wide streets – many of which also offer a great view of Edinburgh's iconic skyline.

If you can't decide what kind of meal you're after, our customer restaurant reviews and offers could help you find the perfect New Town eatery.


Well presented, tasty food with good service. Chic little restaurant close to city centre

Took nearly an hour between each course to get food which was a bit too slow. Food was tasty, had to explain it was booked on 5pm a couple of times but got discount in the end.

Great selection of tapas. Our deal included 5 and they were very generous portions and tasty. After a dessert was included and again the portions were big (3 scoops of icecream in a basket). We were very full when we left!! Would definitely go back - have already been several times.

Love this place. Food delish and service great. I've never had a bad meal in here and I've been quite often ;-)

Fabulous time - wasn't not rushed to give back table, which made it a lovely afternoon with family. The food was lovely.

This is one of the best eating and relaxing venues in central Edinburgh. Food is excellent and very good value. Staff are attentive and knowledgeable. Beautiful surroundings with a friendly, relaxing ambiance.

Local Voice

Edinburgh's New Town is some 200 years old but still looks remarkably handsome. The generous proportions of its Georgian townhouses make for some very elegant dining rooms; many of which serve equally impressive food.
