It would be nice if the menu got varied a bit. I was there in December and it looked like pretty much the same as 3 months ago. I love locally and would love to visit more often - but not if it’s always the same food.

Great night celebrating my birthday at the Kilted Kitchen. Staff were friendly and the food was tasty. Ordered the chicken burger and wasn’t disappointed. Deserts also good. Not a huge selection on the menu but good enough choice, especially if you like burgers and steaks. Cosy atmosphere.

Had a great experience at the Kilted Kitchen! Their eggs benedict were incredible. The restaurant is small and cozy, and located in an adorable area of Edinburgh.

Tried other places in Stockbridge for a Saturday night dinner reservation, but they were fully booked. It all worked out in our favour though as this place is a nice little gem. The staff never rushed us and we felt like valued customers. We both got burgers and pinot gris wine which is a rare find! This bistro is not very big, but has a nice homely feel. Maybe not as much of a mover and shaker as other restaurants in Stockbridge, but really I couldnt fault it and all for a more reasonable price than other restaurants in the area.

The food at The Kilted Kitchen is of an excellent standard for a small cafe style restaurant. Have had lunch there twice but breakfast menu looks great !

I booked this for two people on Saturday evening. It’s a beautiful cosy little restaurant with a warm welcoming atmosphere. The serving staff were pleasant, friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The food was fantastic, well thought combinations and beautifully presented. I will definitely return when I’m next in Edinburgh. Would highly recommend a visit.

Great food, with some different & interesting ingredients - all really tasty - it was difficult to choose what to order as we were tempted by many things. Really nice welcoming decor. Lovely friendly service and a chef who was interested in checking if the chocolate mousse was ok after we’d asked about it when ordering- it was delicious!

it was a Monday evening and most restaurants were closed but I found the Kilted Kitchen in the afternoon and we returned to eat there around 8.30pm and had a delicious meal. We were entertaining a French friend so were a little worried about the menu but were not disappointed. What a lovely little venue. We will certainly recommend it.

We booked online and received confirmation by email. When members of our group arrived we were turned away and told there was no booking. It did look lovely inside, but we were very disappointed and couldn't find anywhere else to serve us brunch at late notice. Have rated the restaurant as 'good' as didn't want to sway the overall reviews, but the booking experience was poor!

Generally a good eating experience let down by lack of staff and strange staff decisions on seating. On arrival having booked a table for 4 the reserved table was set for 5, I noted there would be 3 of us and I was asked if I was happy with an alternate table in the corner that was less spacious. I was so we moved, only for a table of 3 to then be subsequently sat at the table I was originally reserved.

Food was good, its a tight menu with 3 starters, a few mains and then a choice of burgers, and there was one special main course available. Drinks, no draught beers and no spirits listed on menu. When ordering a Gin and tonic there was no offer of range of gin or tonics.

For the 3 of us we had 2 haggis bonbons (tasty but having been titled award winning they seems overbilled) for mains we had a beef burger, chicken burger and a special. There were no complaints on the food and everything was tasty, good ingredients and well presented.

Service - Having ordered I found the starters arrived promptly, we were then finished for a good few minutes before the waiter cleared the plates but almost instantly delivered the mains. So expect clearing was delayed until mains ready. However, having finished the mains our plates then sat for the duration of the time we were in the restaurant, some 30+ mins (as we were happily chatting). We were not offered a refill of tap water nor did they notice we'd finished our drinks in this time. We then had to ask 3 times for the bill, and then for the card machine. Having waited a few mins for the card machine we decided to pay cash and left it on the table and left. Looking back in the window this was the quickest either of the two waiter had got to our table :) The staff were friendly and I think they were just a man short for when they got busy (as it did get to the point all tables were occupied, albeit probably only c25 covers), so it wouldn't stop me going back for another try.

First visit to Kilted Kitchen with my Mum & Sister
Lovely ambience, great food and very attentive friendly service
Sweet potato fries worth a mention

A hidden gem and worth a visit. Stylish without being pretentious like some its neighbours!

It was ok. Limited dinner menu. My chicken burger was a bit dry. Based on reviews, I had pretty higher expectations.
