We were really impressed when we ate here 2 years ago, and decided to try them again for our trip this year. This is a large restaurant and very popular with families, especially during Fringe when everywhere else seems to be a pub. It was...More

I wanted pizza in Edinburgh. That's what led me to Pizza Express. I had never heard of this chain before, but I was pleasantly surprised. I had enjoyed lots of fresh seafood and traditional scottish food for the past 10 days in scotland... and now...More

We walked in at 8.00pm with no reservation and a show to be at by 9.00pm and it was rammed, absolutely crazy. The Fringe is on after all. We joined a queue for a table but thought we hadn't time to wait so were leaving...More

Entered restaurant just as it began to rain so had a good choice of table before the heavens opened and a queue formed to enter the restaurant, so became quite busy. Settled for a gin and tonic, Peroni beer and water - accompanied by a...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
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
