The Sheep Heid Inn

43-45 The Causeway, Edinburgh EH15 3QA, UK – 0131 661 7974

Lovely location, away from hustle and bustle of city centre. Very welcoming staff. Good choice if beers. Food delicious. Only slight downside was portion size of kofta starter and linguine main could have been bigger, and steak was medium rather than rare as requested. These are minor points however and would happily return and recommend.

Marvellously fun pub with proper old skittles out back. Visited for next day post-wedding get together. Back room with skittles was hired for a few hours. Excellent fun for a crowd, young and old. Food was absolutely excellent. Beef sliders, chicken burgers, sweet potato chips, pizza, all fresh and cooked to perfection. Beef sliders also slightly on the rare side which is exactly how you serve them when your meat is as good as theirs. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Would have enjoyed a couple more ales to choose from, hence the 4 and not 5 stars but other than that, perfect.

The Scottie

100 Northfield Broadway, Edinburgh EH8 7RU, UK – 0131 669 7244

Good pub fare at a reasonable price. We arrived with our 9 year old son at 7:40, and their kid license expires at 8:30, but we were served our delicious food and drink and were out of the door with 5 minutes to spare. Nice vibe

A lovely wee local pub with a good menu and portion sizes.

The Esplanade Bar & Restaurant

62-64 Bath St, Edinburgh EH15 1HF, UK – 0131 669 0082

had a lovely and hearty portion of gnocchi with tomato sauce and meatballs there, it was a fantastic dish. i ate on the terrace even though it was the middle of march but it was worth it with the view to the sea and kids running around. the server was very attentive and friendly with me and i got some free mints when i paid - what a nice touch! going to espy was what i call a memorable experience!

Family friendly bar restaurant. Managed by a capable Australian who knows about hospitality. Good selection of beers. Menu is burger oriented with a few other pleasant surprises. Dogs welcome. Can get very busy so book a table to be on the safe side.

Pizza Express

Leisure Quarter, Fort Kinnaird Shopping Centre, Edinburgh EH15 3RD, UK – 0131 669 9888

Nice clean restaurant, good food, offers really good. We had 2 mains for £10.00. Staff really friendly and helpful. We visit on a regular basis as we love the atmosphere in this restaurant.

We went for my sisters birthday lunch the first guy we were greeted by seemed a bit grumpy however the next guy who we think was the manager was great and very friendly and happy. The waitress was great too. First time here but will definitely be back great job!!!

Beefeater The Lady Nairne

228 Willowbrae Rd, Edinburgh EH8 7NG, UK – 0131 661 3396

Staff are very friendly and the bar area is a clean and comfortable place to have a drink

Always liked the Ladynairn but on the last couple of visits there were a lot of things not available on the menu (very early in the evening). I chose the Caeser Salad which had a good portion of chicken but the lettuce was warm and the only other thing in the dish was croutons. Dont think I will be ordering it again!

Chiquito

Unit A3E, Northern Quarter Redevelopment Fort Kinnaird, Edinburgh EH15 3RD, UK – 0131 669 3315

Not a huge fan of chain restaurants, but with voucher cloud offering 30% off, it's OK for a quick bite.

Kids Grilled Chicken Skewers would just like to say that my 2 children who had these have been sick all night and day from these as my other child who had the cod bites is fine was a really good meal very very nice staff and place but needed to tell you about my kids experience from eating the Grilled Chicken Skewers

Chinese Restaurants serving the Edinburgh area

Laura's Chinese Restaurant

Abercorn Terrace, Edinburgh EH15 2DA, UK – 0131 657 9464

Group of 10 of us booked in, table ready on time for arrival. Was informed quickly about changes to beverages menu which hadn't been updated on menu yet. Food was quite quick, but not rushed out. Food was delicious, i myself went for szechuan chicken, which can be disastrous dependent upon restaurant but was VERY pleased with the dish, absolutely beautiful. Everyone else in the group was equally impressed. Would recommend and will definitely return.

Had a lovely family meal. Everyone enjoyed it.

China Cafe

66 Portobello High St, Edinburgh EH15 1AN, UK – 0131 669 6224

Easily the best Chinese in portobello. Tried them all and tried this last. Doesn't look that great from the outside but food is superb - light not glutinous and delicious. Plus the owners are lovely. Great value too. Try it - we would not go anywhere else now.

Lee (chef) has great skills and they have daytime opening hours making a great alternative for a Chinese during lunchtime as everyone else opens after 2 pm. My favourite meal from their specials menu hasn't changed for years, I think the prices are also pretty much the same as 5 years ago when they've opened. There are at least 3 really good Chinese takeaways on Portobello and China Cafe is definitely one of them.

Xanadu Chinese Restaurant

13-14 Dalziel Place, Edinburgh EH7 5TP, UK – 0131 661 8981

Great food and really good customer service. Portions were massive! Amazing value for money.

Good Chinese Restaurant. I get take away regularly.

Indian Restaurants and takeaways in or near Edinburgh

Mint Indian Takeaway

64 Portobello High St, Edinburgh EH15 1AN, UK – 0131 669 9211

Wecgot a takeaway for two of the specials menu which was through a gift voucher I'd won at work. And it was really good no complaints from me and within the shop was nice and clean with friendly staff. Definatley go back.

It’s very disappointing to find what appears to be fake bad reviews of Mint, made almost certainly by a rival business. I am a regular customer and I have also seen the kitchen operation at first hand. Jay works incredibly hard and his success is based on lots of very happy customers and repeat business. False allegations can be very damaging and I would urge the perpetrator to remove the post concerned along with other fake reviews of Indian takeaways in Portobello.

Shahi Manzil

157 Willowbrae Rd, Edinburgh EH8 7JB, UK – 0131 661 0441

Been coming here for a while now. The food has been consistently excellent for about 30 orders which I have placed. Delivery is usually very fast. Alternatively staff are friendly when collecting food. All in all very good

First class service and food. Delivery is excellent & very reasonable prices. Good portions also. I can recommend the garlic chili chicken. Wonderful outlet.

Bonoful Restaurant -

13-17 Brighton Pl, Edinburgh EH15 1LH, UK – 0131 669 8000

After being recommended by a friend to do so, my wife and I visited the Bonoful restaurant in Portobello last night. We were very glad that we did as the service was impeccable from start to finish, including personal recommendations on what dishes to eat from the Restaurant Manager. We were glad of the help in choosing, as my wife and I both agreed that the food was without doubt among the best Indian / Bangladeshi Cuisine that we have ever sampled. Fresh tasting sauces, and melt in the mouth meat, all topped off with amazing flavour. They also have a great drinks and wine selection. We will definitely be back, and would urge anyone else to visit too, so that they can taste the amazing food that the Bonoful has to offer.

Food delicious, service great. Not the cheapest but it's a nice well kept place although you wouldn't know from the outside. Recommended!

Italian Pasta and Pizza Restaurants

Crolla's Italian Kitchen

The Courtyard, Station Rd, Musselburgh EH21 7PQ, UK – 0131 273 5240

I just went to have a pizza and some drink with my family. I got a lovely waitress Kristina who served us professional and with a big smile. Finally I can tried original Italian pizza, I enjoyed every single bite. Thanx for it!

Just stopped for coffee and cake.... they don't do cake as such but we shared a dessert.... amazing cheesecake! The coffee was the best too! Sophisticated surroundings! Menu looks good and reasonably priced.

Vegetarian or Vegan Restaurants

Reds

254 Portobello High St, Edinburgh EH15 2AT, UK – 0131 669 5558

Nice wee cafe. Decent food! The soft play area is great if it is not busy, but too small if more than two groups there.

Popped in at random today for the first time. Cullen skink was fabulous: would have gladly ordered another if I'd had time! Coffee was great and piping hot. Service was excellent. Great value for money. Couldn't recommend this cafe highly enough. To say more would be verbose.

McDonald's

59 London Rd, Edinburgh EH7 6AA, UK – 0131 659 5841

Spotlessly clean, very helpful staff. Spilt my cup of tea and quick as a flash the floor was mopped dry table wiped clean and I was given a fresh cup of tea. :-)

I will mark down because there never seems to be salad available. Good service, quick, clean.

TGI Fridays

4 Kinnaird Park, Edinburgh EH15 3RD, UK – 0344 880 4370

We took our friend to celebrate his birthday and the staff went out of their way to make the experience perfect for him. Great food, and nothing too much trouble. Highly recommended.

Food fine service very slow lots of tables with empty plates that's the last 3 times in here if service continues lime this will not be back .all tables round me full of empty plates staff walking past and talking

Wine Bars and Cocktail Bars

The Ball Room Sports Bar (Meadowbank) - Pool, Snooker & Darts Venue

25 Jocks Lodge, Edinburgh EH8 7AA, UK – 0131 661 1288

The staff are great. Really friendly and professional. Tables are great. No complaints there. The only issue I have is with the food. The burgers are really bad quality. Burger van quality. The kind of burgers you'd get from a burger van in an industrial estate. No offense to the chefs.. I think that's down to whoever decided to buy the cheapest of the cheap. The calamari is a joke too. But ho... It's a pool bar. If you're coming for a game of pool and a pint and some chips, you won't be disappointed.

Food is amazing, beautiful restaurant. We got a wowcher deal, 3 courses for 2 for £16 and it was fantastic, I'd have been happy to pay double. From the name you'd assume it's a typical sports bar but has a seperate restaurant and food is to die for. A must visit.

Barrelhouse Bar & Grill

35 Smokey Brae, Edinburgh EH8 7AA, UK – 0131 661 0811

Have improved so much this past few months. Great service, great food and good value. Perfect for families, as there is play area at the back and no time restrictions like some restaurants and bars for children to leave. So you can chill and relax without rushing your meal. Also dog friendly. Highly recommend.

Quirky decor. Great service. Good food. Funky smell? This place has a gory past which it is trying to overcome. It has a lot of potential to become a favorite haunt. We really enjoyed the place, the food and the staff. Come on! Give them a chance
