REVIEW – The Lot, Grassmarket

*****

The Grassmarket has numerous choices for dinner, but I like to head to The Lot for a meal. It’s an arts venue and restaurant/bistro, with emphasis on ethical and fairtrade foods.   All the times I have eaten here, I’ve received friendly service and good food.  I love looking at the current exhibition on the walls […]

REVIEW – Quick Lunch at Pizza Express

*****

I like the food at Pizza Express in Edinburgh and there are branches all over town.  My personal favourite is the Stockbridge branch which is by the Water Of Leith and is the old TSB bank (for those that remember !)   The service quality changes every time I visit, but today I was impressed with […]

REVIEW – Another Lunch At Lauriston Farm

*****

I first reviewed a trip to the Lauriston Farm Toby Carvery a few months back – HERE  I said that I would never go back with children, which I have not done, but for £5 during the day, you can’t get a better meal for a couple of adults. I’ll let the pictures speak for […]

REVIEW – Cafe Truva, Leith

*****

Stopped off for a cuppa and cake at Cafe Truva on The Shore in Leith.  This review is only for a cup of tea and cake, but they do all kinds of food for lunch etc and I look forward to trying them out. It was 3pm or so when I was there, so not […]

REVIEW – Lunch at Tex Mex 2, Thistle Street

*****

Tex Mex 2 is situated in Thistle Street between Hanover and Frederick Street.  I have eaten here many times before and sampled some of their fabulous Margaritas and Mexican food.  No alcohol yesterday lunchtime for the three of us who were dining, we had to return to work after. They do a business lunch during the week and […]

REVIEW – The Kismot, St Leonards Street

*****

Friendly service and the hottest curry in the world The Kismot is a family run restaurant in St Leonards Street, opposite the police station.  It may seem out of the way, but it’s only a short walk from the Bridges and the Royal Mile etc. We had wanted to dine here for ages so that […]

REVIEW – Dinner At Olive Branch Bistro, Bruntsfield

*****

I had the delight of eating at the Olive Branch Bistro at Bruntsfield and the whole meal and service was extremely impressive.   We were shown to our table by a very polite waiter who catered to our every need throughout dinner.  We were there early on a Sunday evening, but the restaurant got far busier, […]

REVIEW – L'Alba D'oro Chip Shop, Henderson Row

*****

Perfect for when walking home after a festival show, or any time of the year for that matter is a ‘chippy’ from the famous L’Alba D’oro chip shop on Henderson Row (a  short walk down Hanover Street).   It’s also been awarded 4 stars by the Scottish tourist board !!! I am stuck in my ways […]

REVIEW – The Living Room For Lunch

*****

The Living Room is George Street is part of a national chain, but the venue in Edinburgh is beautiful.  They have a large dining room through the back past the bar, live music in the evenings (weekends) and a selection of tables and curved booths to sit at. I used my List Card here, but I have […]

REVIEW – Chez Pierre for Lunch, New Town

*****

Chez Pierre is run by Pierre Levicky who used to run the fabulous Pierre Victoire in Edinburgh.  His restaurant at Eyre Place (New Town)  is one of my favourite and I often dine here with my family and friends at the weekend to enjoy the French food. If you want to try a sample of the […]
