    Excellent lunch

    Fantastic 3 course lunch with a large glass of wine included. The food was beautifully cooked and presented. The menu choice was 3 different starters/mains/desserts and it was difficult to choose because they were all good. Our party of five covered all the different choices and they everything was good.Excellent friendly service - I would like to eat here again!

Traditional Scottish dishes in Edinburgh city centre

Scottish ingredients and traditional Scottish dishes are to the fore in the menus at Cranston’s. A typical starter might be the chicken liver pate served with woodland mushrooms while the char grilled sirloin steak is popular among the main courses. While Scottish smoked salmon or sticky toffee pudding fly the flag for UK culinary traditions, there are other influences on the menu. Look out for dishes such as chilli and garlic prawns; the chef’s penne pasta and the tiramisu.
