    Blonde is an undiscovered gem.

    Very imaginative menu, well executed. I had the poached pear dessert with elderflower ice cream, brandy basket and bitter orange sauce. One of the best desserts I have ever eaten, including those of many more expensive restaurants around the world.

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.
