About The Place
Stylish Scottish dining in the city centre
Based in a luxury boutique hotel in an A-listed Georgian townhouse, The Place offers Scottish cuisine with a few international influences. The setting is sleek but welcoming, with a fireplace and adjacent shimmery cocktail bar.
Scottish and European flavours
Sample starters at The Place include chicken liver & wild mushroom terrine, classic cullen skink and mini caeser salad.
Mains include a 10oz Scottish sirloin steak; pan-fried sea trout with mussels, and creamy beef stroganoff. A speciality is the 12 hours braised ox cheeks with horseradish mash, roasted vegetables and beef gravy. Pasta fans can try tiger prawn & chorizo linguine with a lemon glaze or ricotta & spinach tortellini.
As well as indulgent puddings like hot berry sundae and chocolate brownie, you can opt for The Greatest Scottish Cheeses selection as a savoury treat.
Handy for the Edinburgh Playhouse and main shops
The restaurant is based very centrally on York Place, close to the Edinburgh Playhouse, Assembly Rooms and Stand Comedy Club. The Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Scott Monument and John Lewis are also nearby. Waverley station is less than a 10-minute walk away, while pay parking is available at Q-Park Omni on Greenside Row.
