The Sheep Heid Inn

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

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 Sheep Heid Inn has been serving ale to customers since 1360. The customer service is good, the food good but the atmosphere makes it. The sense of history felt within fires the imagination. I have always enjoyed it. The old skittle alley is still in use too. Well worth a visit

The Esplanade Bar & Restaurant

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

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.

Great bar and restaurant. Great views. Ask for table at window. Great menu. Now downsides. Toilets are minute. Can't swing a cat. Every time we get ignored after they give us the mains. We fancied perhaps dessert and another drink last night but staff were nowhere to be seen. Oh well. U also have to go and find staff to pay, which is ridiculous. They redeemed themselves when i fedback and produced a muffin for the pair of us!! 😊

Pizza Express

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

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!!!

Great food and service

Rhubarb

Priestfield Rd, Edinburgh EH16 5UT, UK – 0131 225 1333

Incredible standards in all areas. This restaurant for me is the very finest in Edinburgh. If you haven't been, I would strongly recommend it.

5 stars for atmosphere 4 stars for food! What a lovely surprise we stumbled upon. After forgetting to make reservations on a Saturday evening, out Concierge was able to get us a late night table here, what a treat! The grounds and hotel itself are stunning, unique, and intriguing. Lovely cocktails to be had on your walk around the gardens so be sure to arrive early to fully enjoy. Dinner was lovely but the wine selection even better. Would certainly recommend this spot to anyone looking to feel as if you have escaped the bustle of city center.

Beefeater The Lady Nairne

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

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!

I had excellent Sunday roast. Also the staff is very friendly but the reception needs someone who's fast.

Chinese Restaurants serving the Edinburgh area

Xanadu Chinese Restaurant

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

Very nice food, cooked to perfection. Staff very very helpful and informative.

While visiting London with family, this place was recommended to us. The best deal in London for Chinese cuisine. This is where Chinese restaurant workers eat on their day off.

Laura's Chinese Restaurant

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

Lovely staff and food great enjoyed my visit there

Great place great food good atmosphere

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.

Good fresh food. Recommended

Indian Restaurants and takeaways in or near Edinburgh

Bonoful

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.

I walked past here a few weeks ago as a couple were leaving I could hear them raving to each other about how much they enjoyed the food with that in mind I ordered a takeaway last night a Chicken,Lamb and king prawn byriani with a garlic nan .. It was out standing ! It arrived quickly and packaged well. One of the best byrianis I've ever had and I've tried most places .. Highly recommend this restaurant I'll be ordering again for sure .

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.

Italian Pasta and Pizza Restaurants

Frankie & Benny's

Unit 3A, Newcraighall Rd, Edinburgh EH15 3HP, UK – 0131 669 3190

My hubby & I had a lovely experience here tonight, the Staff where so accommodating especially when I asked to sit somewhere because of the draught coming due to the door being open & our waiter was lovely, the food & our mocktails came very quickly so we had a lovely evening....

Nice food good service music a tad on the loud side.

Vegetarian or Vegan Restaurants

Reds

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

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.

Soooo happy to have found this cafe after a great day with my boyfriend at the beach! What was even more awesome was they done GLUTEN FREE fish and chips!! Owners are very helpful and friendly.... Going back very soon!! :) x

Mint Indian Takeaway

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

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.

Still charging fees for using debit and credit card payments although the banks have abolished them.

Miro's

25 Promenade, Edinburgh EH15 1HH, UK – 0131 669 9996

Really nice food and people, tables were a bit sticky not sure if the cleaning products are bringing up the varnish. Over all a happy with the service and experience. Glad to see Portobello with nice places to eat and drink . (Perhaps a few healthy options on the menu)

Food was really nice, staff friendly and nice location. I was lucky enough to have my meal on a sunny day so I stayed on the terrace. Fair price. A sea food linguine was @ 13£.

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

Came here on a Groupon voucher which unfortunately they wouldn't accept because the kitchen has changed hands. But the manager was great and did whatever he could for us, and their usual prices on the special menu weren't too different anyway. Staff were lovely, food was good and enjoyed a couple hours of pool

Good choice of beer and food. Tv's everywhere and a big screen so great for live sport.

Barrelhouse Bar & Grill

35, Smokey Brae, Edinburgh EH7 8AA, UK – 0131 661 0811

The food is deceivingly good for a casual and cheap pub. Everything we tasted was delicious. The place has some New Orleans influence with southern fried chicken on waffles, jambalaya, but of course it has Scottish twist with Haggis and good beer. Cheap, delicious casual pub. If this would me down my street I would be there every night.

Really liked this place. Very industrial feel to it. The food we had was fantastic. I had the house burger which was obviously hand made and was absolutely delicious.

The Esplanade Bar & Restaurant

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

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.

Great bar and restaurant. Great views. Ask for table at window. Great menu. Now downsides. Toilets are minute. Can't swing a cat. Every time we get ignored after they give us the mains. We fancied perhaps dessert and another drink last night but staff were nowhere to be seen. Oh well. U also have to go and find staff to pay, which is ridiculous. They redeemed themselves when i fedback and produced a muffin for the pair of us!! 😊
