Heading into town and fancy a bite to eat?
Scotland's capital has so many bars, cafes, and restaurants for you to try. From traditional Scotch pancakes to exotic fusion food, there's something for everyone! Here's just a selection of what you can find:
Known for its sparkly lights throughout the festive season, The Dome holds a reputation for fine service and cuisine. Enjoy Scottish favourites, local produce and signature drinks.
For all you health gurus, this one's for you! They serve seasonal, mostly local and ethically sourced, feel-good factor food! Brunch is served 'til 3pm too, so it's great if you like to sleep in!
Laid-back, affordable Indian dining - just what a student needs. There's a tapas concept so you can share easily with friends. Plus, it's well known amongst the locals and has a reputation for its great choice and service.
Maybe one of the best pizzas you can get in the city! As far as pizzas and topping varieties go, this place is way ahead of the game and they are fast expanding. Also, great for those on a gluten free diet!
The Holyrood 9A
Gourmet burgers and more than 20 beers and ales to try, what's not to like? There's sharing boards, salads, small plates and delicious desserts whilst their beers can be sampled in 1/3, 1/2, 2/3 or pint glasses.
Kyloe Restaurant & Grill
If you love steak, then Edinburgh's first gourmet steak restaurant is a must! Well known for their 'steak chats', you will be given a run down of all the cuts and flavours. Some dishes are a little pricey so maybe keep this for a special occasion.
This restaurant is a veggie's paradise! They offer a colourful menu of food from the Mediterranean to the Pacific and India and Thailand in between. Their desserts are also said to be unmissable!
For a taste of authentic Mexico in the centre of Edinburgh, head to Viva Mexico. This family-run restaurant serves delicious fajitas, quesadillas, nachos and more! Plus, their frozen margaritas make the perfect pairing with your food!
Enjoy exploring your new city!
