    Hi TZ

    Up to Edinburgh at the weekend with the Mrs and tin lids.

    Fair chance you've left it a bit late tbf.
    Any time i phone up for decent Edinburgh eateries they are booked well in advance.
    Table for 2 will have a bit more scope of course.
    If you like seafood Ondine is great.

    City centre, at this notice, very little chance of anywhere decent. If you can be bothered go up to Leith, try the Roseleaf, it's good.

    Or the Rail Bridge in South Queensferry is a decent place, reasonably priced and with a great view. Train to Dalmeny takes only 15 mins.

    First Coast is pretty good and just a short distance from Haymarket. Ignite is one of the best Indian restaurants in town and just a short walk from Haymarket (Morrison Street).

    Check out Makars Gourmet Mash bar on tripadvisor, I can heartily recommend the slow cooked ox cheek.

    Thereís a decent restaurant on the top floor of the National Museum of Scotland, which also benefits from fantastic views and a roof terrace. Museums not too shabby either. The healthy-ish cliche is Hendersonís in the Old Town which does decent veggie and salad options. Iíd personally recommend the Cafe Royal Oyster Bar in West Register Street, handy for Princess Street and Waverley Station, go for a pint of 80 shilling in the Cafe Royal Bar next door - amazing decor and atmosphere.

    Agreed on the Cafe Royal - and The Kitchin is getting good reviews.

    There are a few places down in Leith (Mussel Inn, Fishers, The Kitchen etc) and they are all pretty good.

    I live in Edinburgh and have 2 kids below age of 5. We usually go to Pizza Express if we are going for a family dinner!

    That said, plenty of other excellent places to visit of course. We like Scran and Scallie in Stockbridge (good for kids), Shebeen near Haymarket, Vesta at West End, and if you don't mind travelling down out of town a bit then Papilio in Bruntsfield is a superb family Italian restaurant. There are so many options, I wouldn't worry about comments above - you will definitely get a table somewhere decent without booking.

    I always make a point of visiting Kebab Mahal at Nicolson Square. The best Chicken Biriani bar none. Unpromising exterior.

    What kinda food are you thinking??

    The length of Morrison Street, near Haymarket train station and tram stops, has a good mixed bag of food, likewise Dalry Road towards Gorgie Road, again near Haymarket etc.

    City centre george Street into st andrew square is good too.

    Edinburgh is quiet this time of year so you should be okay with booking if you feel like doing it. I wouldnít if I was you

    Enjoy yourselves!!

    If you can get a table at Six by Nico, even for lunch - do it!

    Thanks for all the comments.

    We all went to see the Lion King tonight at the playhouse (it was fantastic I can highly recommend it).

    Anyway we managed to get into the educated flea which is just a stones throw away from the playhouse. Really nice and good options for the kids.

    Thanks again

    Having never heard of the Educated Flea, that looks lovely. Not my end of town but worth a bus trip!

    Yeah definitely try! I donít know how other places in Edinburgh compare but this was lovely. The food was so fresh and the Edinburgh brewed rake I tried was really really good stuff.
    Let me know what you think.

    Thanks

    We enjoyed Scran & Scallie. Bit out of centre though.
