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.


Enjoyed a very pleasant 3 course meal plus a bottle of house Cabernet Sauvignon for an all-in price of £40. Starter of haggis bon bons followed by a exceptional mushroom gnocchi. Dessert tiramisu was a bit dry but all in all a very enjoyable meal. Excellent waiting and bar staff. Will go again.

As always the burgers were delicious, I enjoyed the complimentary cocktail which was part of the deal. Unfortunately service was a bit slow to begin with and we were waiting awhile before anyone came to take our order. Otherwise we enjoyed our evening.

We arrived quite early which meant there wasn't much ambience but this improved as more dinners arrived. Good choice from a set menu. Really thought it was value for money except the supplement on the prawns, there were only 3 so an extra £3 seemed expensive.

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.
