We’ve been a few times and Educated Flea has always produced. Brilliantly presented food with great, different combinations and flavours. Went in November for lunch and the deal was great, cheap for the level of food and still great even in these times.

We have just enjoyed a superb meal just before lockdown on Friday. Great choices, lovely staff and great value. Would really recommend a Visit when things get back to some kind of normal again.

Our third visit in a year - the last two being consecutive evenings 25&26 September. The choice of dishes was as good as we remembered from September last year. Really a week in Edinburgh would have been better, then we could have gone right through...More

Visiting Edinburgh from Merseyside, earlier in September, and dined here with my wife and student daughter. Everything was superb - interesting, tasty, beautifully presented food; perfect service; and endearing, chilled ambiance.

I have been here a couple of times now and I must say it’s becoming one of my favourite places to eat. The place just has a nice relaxed feeling more like a cafe vibe but definitely not cafe food. Went for lunch on Sunday...More

We were recommended this restaurant prior to lockdown & managed to get in for lunch on their first day back. There were so many things I wanted to eat on the (small but really varied) menu. Our starters were inventive & packed full of flavour...More

Had the vegetarian paella - delicious! Made with artichokes, peas, asparagus and a beautiful smokey aoli. Loved the crispy fried kidney beans. How do they cook them?

Called in without booking & was given the one free table. My reception was friendly, the table service excellent, the two course meal even better, the cheapest white wine good & the bill more than reasonable. You will gather I was very well pleased.

Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
