About Café St Honoré

Bringing 1940s Paris to modern-day Edinburgh, Café St Honoré restaurant is a charming bistro serving up traditional French cuisine (with a few Scottish favourites thrown in) to a loyal clientele. Tucked away on a picturesque cobbled lane in the New Town, the cosy dining room at Café St Honore, with mirrored walls and black-and-white tiled floors, provides an atmospheric retreat. The team here are passionate about local, organic produce, so the menu changes daily. There are prix fixe menus on offer at lunch and dinner if you’re after a bargain, or just need an excuse to indulge in dessert. In the evening, a seasonal menu du jour is available alongside the full a la carte, which features dishes like roast pheasant with red cabbage and pancetta; Shetland salmon with leek and herb risotto; and vanilla crème brûlée. The wine list features some excellent French wines – a real treat for novices and connoisseurs alike.

Being a real foodie I must say this is a find when I was on business in Edinburgh.
I have the business lunch which was outstanding from beginning to the end.
I started with mussels which were great followed by what was described as pork hash which was pork with onions and cabbage with an egg in the top, a good portion and delicious. Desert was a fab crime brûlée. Go there fellow diners if you are in Edinburgh anytime.
It was so reasonably priced too. Well done for a great lunch. This is the best review I have done in ages

This is a favourite of mine! As always, the food was really good....I had ham hock terrine, blade of beef and then cheese. Wines by the glass are good too - and the service excellent.

My wife and I had a lovely lunch - we had been here once before a few years ago. The welcome, help with food and wine choices and the service were all very warm and helpful. The food was really good and the atmosphere is very Parisienne. It won't be as long till we next visit.

Absolutely brilliant food. Fine Scottish produce impeccably cooked. Service at best inexpert -- had a sense staff were all still in training. And ambience somewhat impaired by inappropriate music. But the food is the main thing, and that was superb.

We really enjoyed our lunch, menu was great with many choices and at an affordable price. The staff were attentive without being overbearing and nothing was too much trouble. The house wine (red and white was excellent) and well worth the price we paid. Overall our Dining was experience was great, that it felt very French just made it better. Highly recommended by all five of us in the party.

We have now eaten at St Honere 3 times and if possible the food gets more delicious. Every mouthfall is yummy. Really friendly staff very helpful and welcoming. It is a very cosy restaurant with a charming atmosphere. We will return again next year.

After several visits, I still love coming here to eat. The food is always well-presented, well cooked and tasty. The staff are friendly and efficient. I was going to give 4 stars overall because they forgot to bring a glass of red wine with my main course, but when we reminded our waitress, the manager apologised and took it off our bill. I have no hesitation in giving it 5 stars.

This is such a good restaurant! Ingredients are very fresh and put together in innovative ways, i.e. panzanella with smoked mackerel. what a great idea! The pork rillette was delicious. We had venison and duck confit for mains and they were very well cooked. Frangipane cake with cherries was a nice finish as was the tablet that came with coffee or tea. I cant believe we waited so long to try this place. We will definitely be back. The service was very warm and welcoming as well as competent.

We had a lovely dinner at Cafe St Honore. It has a French bistro vibe and serves top notch Scottish ingredients. Good see a restaurant serve Arbroath Smokie (in the form of a croquette) as a starter, (more restaurants should showcase this delightful smoked fish). Duck followed served with Stornoway Black Pudding hit the spot. Perfectly cooked rhubarb for pud. My wife had the belly pork, soft and unctuous.
This is a great place for dinner. The kitchen knows what it's doing, the staff are friendly and welcoming. Thoroughly recommend it.

It's one of Edinburgh's secret gems - tucked away in Thistle Street, in the lane. It's a lovely restaurant just like stepping into Paris fir the afternoon or evening. The food is amazing food - using seasonal foods/ingredients - the staff are friendly and helpful.

We had pheasant Waldorf salad to start which beautiful and delicate leaving plenty of room for other courses. Main was Hake and was excellent. Sticky toffee pudding was good but have had better. Cheese board was enjoyable with a good selection. The restaurant is a lovely place with excellent ambiance upstairs although I would not want to sit downstairs

The welcome was friendly. The service was understated yet ever present making dining a delight. The food was well presented, tasty and the wine suggestion spot on even down to ensuring the wine was at a lovely chilled temperature before we sampled. The space is lovely and you could easily forget you are in a lane in the middle of Edinburgh not a Paris restaurant. The ambience is added to by music that complements not over powers the conversation. We opted for the set meal though next time the al a carte menu is to be road tested. It was a relaxed meal right down to the coffee with tablet. Superb.

We had booked the £19.50 (3 courses plus a small glass of wine), but when we got there we both fancied the 'Express Lunch' menu, so ordered from that instead. Absolutely delicious food, fab surroundings and brilliant service. Cannot believe that I've never been before - will definitely go back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Fabulous!
