    Relaxing evening meal!

    I had a lovely vegetarian haggis & mushroom burger & an amazing chocolate mousse with glayva strawberries. The place was not busy but we were happy with the quiet midweek meal that this meant we had. Would definitely go back!

    Great Find for Great Food in Edinburgh

    We went here for Mother's Day after reading other reviews and were not disappointed. There was a good choice of food and it was delicious, the service top rate and overall it was great value for money, especially when other restaurants seem to increase their prices around special occasions. I'll be heading back real soon.

Atmospheric Scottish restaurant in Edinburgh Old Town

Tucked away under George IV Bridge, The Cellar Door is a welcoming Scottish restaurant. Once a printing press, the split-level dining room is decorated in a jaunty style with feature lighting and a sleek set of designer stairs leading to the mezzanine. Look out for the 21st century take on the mounted stag head.

Beautifully presented Scottish produce

Seasonal Scottish produce is at the heart of the constantly evolving menus at The Cellar Door. From Shetland mussels and Scottish salmon to crispy, oat-caked haggis bon bons and 21 day-aged rib-eye steaks, the menus owe much to Scotland’s farmers, fishermen and game keepers.

Dishes like the beer-battered fish and hand-cut chips are simple but done well. Other choices, such as the venison steak with barley risotto, roasted carrots, carrot purée and a red wine jus have been finessed that little bit more.

Desserts such as cranachan and cheesecake or sticky Highland toffee pudding continue to fly the Saltire until the end of the meal. A short but select range of whiskies means diners can finish in fine Caledonian style.
