    Incredible value for money

    The welcome, service and enjoyment of lunch at Blonde is second to none. Their attention to detail and consideration for customers with disabilities is second to none. Two fantastic courses for £9.95, booking with 5pm.co.uk.

    SEEK OUT WHEN IN EDINBURGH - YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

    Visiting Edinburgh with a friend who had been to Blonde before. Lovely welcome, relaxed atmosphere and delicious food. My friend had the chicken with seeds and spices and I had duck with pink peppercorns - an explosion of flavours and a joy to eat. Dessert was just as good. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Stylish European restaurant in south side

Blonde is a relaxed and informal restaurant situated on St. Leonard’s Street in the south side of Edinburgh’s city centre. Using fresh quality produce, the restaurant serves Scottish and European cuisine which caters to a variety of tastes. Accessible to wheelchair users, Blonde is also child-friendly and can provide highchairs for diners with children.

Scottish & European dishes with a contemporary twist

The restaurant firmly believes in providing a high standard of food and service at reasonable prices. The menus often feature innovative pairings of ingredients, like the warm salad of Stornoway black pudding with raspberry & walnut and a red onion marmalade; a filo parcel filled with sweet potato & veggie haggis served with roasted potato, turnip & celeriac and a vegetable gravy; or the lamb, paprika & tomato meatballs with a creamy red pesto fettuccine and grated Parmesan.

Even some traditional items don’t escape Blonde’s culinary experimentation, as evidenced in the venison casserole which is cooked slowly with red wine, root vegetables and chocolate (yes, you read that right) and served with buttered mash and parsnips crisps.
