About The Wee Restaurant

Modern Scottish restaurant in Edinburgh city centre

Ten years after the original Wee Restaurant opened in North Queensferry in 2006, Craig and Vikki Wood opened this second branch on Frederick Street in Edinburgh city centre. Simply but elegantly decorated, the dining room has large windows looking out to the street. However, it is much more likely that your attention will be focused on the beautifully presented, modern Scottish cooking; all delivered in a friendly, informal ambience.

Seasonal Scottish produce, cooked with care

‘Simple good food’ is the motto at The Wee Restaurant on Frederick Street. It’s true that the dishes are not overworked or fussy but they are cleverly thought through, cooked with care and plated elegantly. The kitchen’s techniques are rooted in classic French cuisine and the sourcing is seasonal and Scottish. Perthshire lamb, Orkney crab and local asparagus are the sort of ingredients which star on the range of regularly changing menus. For diners who really want to keep it straightforward, there is always a selection of steaks from the Black Isle, dry-aged for a minimum of 28 days.
