Best working lunch near Waverley Station – The Grain Store


Enjoy a working lunch in the stylish and elegant surroundings of unique Old Town restaurant The Grain Store, as you select from a lunch menu that- let’s face it – packs a heck of a lot more of a flavour punch than a soggy supermarket sandwich!  Whether its starters like the fresh and zingy Gazpacho (including bread and home-made basil oil), or mains such as the rich Duck Confit, you’ll leave the Grain Store revived and ready to take on the world.


Fine dining in Edinburgh – Angles with Bagpipes


The wittily-named Angels with Bagpipes isn’t so much of a restaurant as it is a taste experience, with Head Chef Fraser Smith cooking up deceptively simple dishes with a modern twist, executed to perfection in truly gorgeous surroundings.  Diners can choose to heighten their gastronomic experience by trying the exquisite Tasting Menu, pairing their meal with specially-selected wines.

I love food. #angelswithbagpipes #edinburgh #rabbit #salmon #otherthings #ididntpay

Romantic meal near Edinburgh Station – Maison Bleue


Adventurous, eclectic, exciting; Maison Bleue is all of that and so much more, offering a sumptuously spicy fusion of French, North-African and Scottish flavours in a simply delightful setting that will make your special evening a night to remember.  They offer a 3-course prixe fixe  menu called ‘le Banquet Bleu’ or alternatively order a la carte and choose from indulgent options such as the beer-battered haggis balls or the South Vietnamese coconut chicken.

Quick drinks near Edinburgh Waverley – The Bow Bar


Edinburgh’s Old Town is a haven of drinking spots; with so many to choose from, you may find yourself dizzy before you even touch a drop, but don’t despair, because I’ve picked one out for you.  A good one.  The Bow Bar is, in fact, one of Edinburgh’s finest old pubs, featuring  a comprehensive selection of fine Scottish single malts and cask ales, all served up to thirsty clientele in a charming and cozy atmosphere.
