The food is amazing and the ambiance is superb with a first class service. Cocina is harry-potter-restaurant... It is a modern, trend, edge restaurant as you may find in New York. If you are in Edinburgh, you must go to Cocina.

Really good pizzas/calzone/sides. Quirky restaurant with large benches for all customers. Nice local drinks options and slushy cocktails. Friendly staff and quick service - had to wait 20 mins for a table but they take the number and call you back so we went elsewhere...More

First impressions are often best. My first impression of Cucina is that it is a pretty good place for a nice lunch, either take-away or sit-in. I sat down and had a perfectly satisfactory snack lunch and my observation of the take-out counter was that...More

A lovely breakfast buffet with fruits, cereals, cheese, meats, smoked fish, yogurts, juice and also made to order hot dish - eggs benedict and another version with salmon. Big pot of coffee on your table.

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
