A Dish from The Honours!
Lovebirds looking for a romantic restaurant in Edinburgh for Valentine's Day are spoilt for choice. That is if they act fast to make a reservation. There are plenty of great places to enjoy a delicious meal in an intimate and elegant setting. Here's a list of four brilliant Edinburgh eateries to visit with your sweetheart.
123b High Street (the Royal Mile), EH1 1SG
Located in the heart of the Royal Mile, Dubh Prais offers a hearty helping of welcoming Scottish character and, despite its tourist laden locale, has an authentically homey and off-the-beaten track feel to it. The gorgeous menu features the finest of salmon, sole, Aberdeen Angus beef, haggis and game (including pheasant and venison), all simply cooked with seasonal herbs grown in proprietors own home garden. With room for just a couple of a dozen covers a night, this is as quaint and cozy as they come. Make your reservation now! Visit dubhpraisrestaurant.com for more information and to book ahead.
58a North Castle Street, EH2 3LU
The thoughtful menu at chef Martin Wishart's brasserie makes The Honours well worth a visit alone. However, it should be noted that the elegant art deco feel of the restaurant, along with some of the most impeccably gracious service you’ll probably ever come across in Britain adds layers of delicious romance to any visit. To find out more about the restaurant and make a reservation visit thehonours.co.uk.
63 Shore, Leith, EH6 6RA
Probably not the best place to “pop the question” or celebrate your 10-year wedding anniversary but if you're looking for a sweet spot for a first date, a casual setting for an inexpensive Valentine's Day or a smart choice for the morning after, consider dropping by Mimi's Bakehouse. Scones with homemade jam and clotted cream, French toast, daily soup and sandwich specials, made to order cakes and more in a fun and cute setting! Visit Mimi's online at mimisbakehouse.com.
The Royal Mile, Castlehill EH1 2NF
Over the top, ornate and a little bit spooky – the wow factor is high at this restaurant with overnight accommodations described as “sumptuous and gothic.” Right next to Edinburgh Castle, dining here is mandatory for first time tourists to this scenic city. An epically romantic place to sample Scottish cuisine by candlelight, booking ahead (any time of year) is strongly recommended. Find out more online and make your reservation at thewitchery.com.
Grab some discount airfare to Edinburgh before it's too late and you miss the sweet eats with your sweety!
