131 menus in Edinburgh lunch, restaurant and takeaway menus

Capital of glorious Scotland and a major cultural centre in the UK and home to Edinburgh International Festival, ‘the Fringe (comedy festival), Edinburgh Tattoo (ceremonial military festival with bands, dancing and processions). Thousands of overseas visitors attend these festivals as a ‘must do’ on trips to the UK, and most are based in or around the ramparts of the famous Edinburgh Castle, a dramatic backdrop, particularly during the evening when everything is floodlit. Even without the festivals, eating and drinking around the castle is a wonderful experience. For upmarket afternoon tea, try the Tea Rooms at the castle itself, or Redcoats, where you can have seasonal menus whilst enjoying dramatic views out over the city and the Firth of Forth.

In the old town, you can enjoy the  finest Italian food at Ciao Roma, where you can see the chefs cooking in the open kitchen, or Boteca do Brasil, with its succulent meat dishes, colourful décor and Brazilian music in the evenings. 

In Edinburgh you are spoilt for choice with every type of cuisine being catered for and many takeaway Italian, Chinese and Indian menus on offer. For a trip away from the city centre, visit the port of Leith, Shoreside, for amazing fish and seafood freshly caught (recommended is the Ship on the Shore with all day opening). A gentle walk from Princes Street will take you to Leith, passing many shops on the way. Leith itself has developed into a popular area for restaurants, pubs and bars, even encompassing  2 Michelin star experiences such as The Kitchin and Martin Wishart. Not easy on the pocket, but very well celebrated for a special meal out.
