This is our fourth time dining at The Gardeners Cottage. We loved the monkfish and lamb dishes, cheeses, rhubarb in the dessert. Adjusting the dishes for my wife's shellfish allergy was greatly appreciated too. We hope to be back again. More

One of the best restaurants I’ve been. The food is absolutely fantastic, we had the haggis, the sausage and lamb. All great! Also the chive and bacon mash is perfection on a plate! Every time I come to Edinburgh, I have to go there. Ambiance is great and staff is super nice. Favorite place in the UK for sure <3 More

Italian | Edinburgh, Edinburgh

We have been dining here for a number of years and we have never had a bad experience or a disappointing meal. The standard of service and the quality of the food is outstanding, and great value for money. The restaurant has been refurbished relatively recently and this creates a lovely ambiance in which to dine. Nothing about the Cavaliere is overstated. It tries in no way to be anything it isn’t. This really does lead to a comfortable, pleasant and relaxed dining experience. It is a pleasure to support such a nice, local and family-run business. More

Indian | Edinburgh, Edinburgh

This was a great experience. A lovely modern Indian restaurant with an imaginative menu and not like the usual run of the mill curry house. The room is very tranquil with linen cloths and linen serviettes. The food has a modern twist and was delicious. Starters of lamb chops, prawns and chicken pakora were delicious and very well presented. The mains equally delicious with the best garlic naan bread we have had - thin and crispy, not a heavy or stodgy. The flavours were authentic and not the usual same old found in other curry houses. For what we had it was outstanding value. This is a very different Indian restaurant compared to the usual and long may it stay that way! A definite ‘returner’. More

Indian | Edinburgh, Edinburgh

We visited Vinyasa as part of my friend’s stag and the staff were very accommodating to our large group size of 14 people. They made things very easy in coordinating our large group as one easy table order and paying attention to the finer details such as who had a biriyani and wouldn’t need extra rice. One of our friends was unfortunately delayed by a good few hours in getting to Edinburgh, but the staff were amazing towards him and allowed us to order his curry and then keep it heated for his arrival. He had a curry and a drink in front of him within 1 minute of arriving, which was all down to the excellence of the staff. The food was incredibly tasty and everyone seemed delighted with what they ordered and highly complementary of the restaurant. I always worry about booking for a large single gender group such as this, but Vinyasa were fantastic with us and instrumental in our weekend getting off to a perfect start. I could not recommend them any more highly. More

Superb meal. Best fillet steak ever. Made all the more enjoyable by our waitress/server Annie who was most informative (it was our first visit to Hawksmoor) and anticipated our every need without being too intrusive. Wrong glass of wine brought for my husband but it was very palatable so no problem! Thankyou for a very enjoyable meal. More

Indian | Edinburgh, Edinburgh

We dined for £31 a head with wine and beer. For a city-centre restaurant in Edinburgh, this is good value. One thing that was appreciated was the 650ml bottles of Kingfisher - none of the nonsense you get elsewhere with 330ml bottles that lead you to paying twice as much for your drinks. My go-to dish at Indian restaurants is a chicken biryani, and it did not disappoint. I have a large appetite and can get frustrated when served a tiny portion. However, the portion sizes at Zest are good, so I was happy. More

I've visited a few times before and it's always been a good experience but not this time. The menu has halved in size and lost all its interesting dishes. I ordered garlic prawns and had to send them back as they were not cooked through. The replacements were nice although missing the bread that was supposed to accompany them. For my main course I had asked for a Blue steak, it's something I've eaten a lot when I'm out and I've also cooked myself. The steak was such a disappointment, really seared on the outside but stone cold. More
