Read on to uncover our guide to restaurants in Edinburgh city centre.




For sumptuous steaks, take a trip to Hawksmoor at St Andrew Square. From tender cuts of Chateaubriand to T-bone and prime rib, alongside a range of Sunday roasts too, this restaurant's menu transports meat lovers to their very own idea of heaven.

Sitting pretty on Castle Street is Tantra, a restaurant that aims to transport you to South Asia with their food, entertainment and interiors. To top it off, they even have 24 carat dishes, including the kadakkai gold bags with roasted Scottish mussels, stilton-kadakkai bisque and a red sesame dip. Swoon.

The Voodoo Rooms

4 user reviews 5

This opulent retreat in the city centre is a bar, restaurant, live music and entertainment venue. While The Voodoo Rooms are famous for their choice of tequila and rum, their offerings of Cajun salmon or free range chicken, bacon and tarragon pie are bound to impress just as much.
