Steakhouse | Edinburgh, Edinburgh

Superb meal. Best fillet steak ever. Made all the more enjoyable by our waitress/server Annie who was most informative (it was our first visit to Hawksmoor) and anticipated our every need without being too intrusive. Wrong glass of wine brought for my husband but it was very palatable so no problem! Thankyou for a very enjoyable meal. More

Global, International | Old Town, Edinburgh

This is in the Apex hotel. It has a modern setting but full glass windows looking out on a classic street making for good people watching. We had the pre fix menu meals and they were really good. The Haggis starter and haddock starters were very tasty. I had the flank steak and my wife had the chicken. All prepared very well. The chocolate pot cake dessert was a nice finish. All and all a good night out. More

$$$$
Scottish | Stockbridge, Edinburgh

We had our son's 21st birthday here recently and it was great. The menu was excellent as was the wine list. The staff were attentive and informative and went as far as to put a candle on the cheese board as a birthday surprise for him. We didn't order pudding otherwise I'm sure that the candle would have been on that! More

The Cavaliere

$$$$
Italian | Edinburgh, Edinburgh

We have been dining here for a number of years and we have never had a bad experience or a disappointing meal. The standard of service and the quality of the food is outstanding, and great value for money. The restaurant has been refurbished relatively recently and this creates a lovely ambiance in which to dine. Nothing about the Cavaliere is overstated. It tries in no way to be anything it isn’t. This really does lead to a comfortable, pleasant and relaxed dining experience. It is a pleasure to support such a nice, local and family-run business. More

One of the best restaurants I’ve been. The food is absolutely fantastic, we had the haggis, the sausage and lamb. All great! Also the chive and bacon mash is perfection on a plate! Every time I come to Edinburgh, I have to go there. Ambiance is great and staff is super nice. Favorite place in the UK for sure <3 More
