I’d like to firstly say that I always use trip advisor for information and references, but I’ve never left a review. The experience I recently had was so bad I HAVE to warn people of what it was like before they think of dining. I’ve...More

I opted for alfresco dining here to take in the sights and sounds of grass market, the special lobster ravioli was sublime. Absolutely delicious. The service was okay but I felt the waiter lost interest entirely once I had ordered.

This eateriy serves authentic cuisine including pizza, pasta, pannini and more. Dine inside or alfresco. The food is delicious and the staff pleasant and helpful. This is an excellent restaurant to spend a relaxing lunch with superb food. Fully licenced.

After wandering around for a while we decided to give Made in Italy a try. The food was tasty and the service was good too. We sat outside which also provided us with some very interesting and entertaining people watching. We'd eat here again.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
