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.
