3 Day Culinary Exploration Of Edinburgh's Best Restaurants

In case you haven’t heard, Edinburgh is a great place to visit if you love amazing food. According to my close friend of mine,Albert Ping, who provides conference venues in Edinburgh. He enjoys his food and always tries to recommend a conference venue near one of the top restaurants. 

Next time you get the chance, plan a trip to Edinburgh for a few days and take in as much of the delicious food as you can.

 Edinburgh has everything from Michelin starred celebrity restaurants through to tiny but impeccable cafes producing innovative and scrumptious food beyond your imagination. Salivating yet? Good. 

 To help you out when you get there, here is a 3 day guide that will ensure you don’t waste any time looking for where to eat so you can spend all your time having the very best breakfast, lunch and dinner you could hope for.

Day One

  • Breakfast – Broughton Deli – 7 Barony Street, New Town
    Stupendously fun menu for all tastes from American pancakes, through to quirky full Scottish breakfasts. Try the scrambled eggs and try not to ask the chef for the recipe.
  • Lunch – The Queen’s Arm – 49 Frederick Street
    Great for lunch when out shopping on George or Princess St. Fantastic menu and great value.
  • Dinner – The Kitchin – 78 Commercial Quay
    Michelin starred and getting better every year. You won’t regret the expense and you wont forget your meal for a long time. Try the monkfish!

Day Two

  • Breakfast – The King’s Wark – 36 The Shore
    It only serves on Sunday but boy is it worth it. Their menu is Scottish through and through and amazing; a true Edinburgh institution.
  • Lunch – Bia Bistrot – 19 Colinton Road
    This is one of the best-kept secrets in Edinburgh. Better than Michelin starred food at a fraction of the price.
  • Dinner – The Witchery by the Castle – Castlehill, The Royal Mile
    If you want your surrounding to be as stunning as your meal, The Witchery is the place for you. Located in jaw-dropping building right next to the castle and with brilliant staff, you will have an excellent night.

Day Three

  • Breakfast – Falko Konditormeister – 185 Bruntsfield Place
    For delicious German bakery and great coffee, stop at this lovely place in the village of Brunstfield.
  • Lunch – Hadrian’s Brasserie – 1 Princess Street
    Tucked under the impressive Balmoral Hotel, this brasserie does one of the best Sunday roasts in the city and a host of other amazing dishes that justify their large price tag. 
  • Dinner – Martin Wishart – 54 The Shore
    You know the name and now is the time to push the boat out and indulge in one of the finest eating experiences you will ever have. You will need to book well in advance though.

This could be the blueprint for the best eating weekend of your life. Save up, book some tables and enjoy.
