My husband and I were here 5 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed the Grain Store. We were back this month and the experience only got better! This is one of our all time favorites and I can't say enough about the excellent service and food....More

Awesome little hidden gem. The menu isn't huge but the quality is spot on. The staff are friendly and attentive. Great setting!

It's almost criminal how little we paid for a 3 course meal of this caliber. Both the food and service was excellent, and they easily could have charged double.

Great food, very cosy, what else? Located in Victoria St with great shops around. Don't forget to book a table in advance.

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
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
