All their platters (olives, cheese, cold cuts) were really tasty. They have a good choice of beer and the location is perfect for a break from walking around in the city.

I had wisely mad reservations for this place, not knowing how busy they would be. I'm glad I did because it was packed! My reservation was for 7:30, but my daughter was starving at 6:30 after a long day of traveling from Wales and walking....More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers

place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
