Edinburgh Old Town Restaurants

History exudes from every corner of Edinburgh's Old Town. A labyrinth of cobbled streets, narrow alleyways and hidden courtyards, it is one of the best preserved medieval cities in the world.

Today it hosts a number of restaurants, bars, and cafes, as well as throngs of tourists, peaking during August festival season.

From five star hotels to traditional Scottish fare to stunning views of the castle, dining out in Edinburgh's Old Town is sure to be a memorable experience.
