Restaurants near the National Library of Scotland???

Does anyone know of any good places to eat near the library? If not, can you think of anything that we would find along a walk to this Library from the middle of the Royal Mile? Thanks!

The Library is only about 100 yards off the Royal mile,this street GeorgeIV Bridge has quite a few small resturants and bistros ,quite a few have opened up very recently.

The Elaphant House is the cafe made famous by JK Rowling where she started writing Harry Potter and from the windows at the back of the cafe you get some great views of the Castle,more a place for tea ,coffee, snacks and light meals but a very good place.

Vittorias have opened a new restuarant on George 1V Bridge and it is very good.

The Outsider is nice. I think thats along that road. opposite side of the road to the Library and along to the left. Nioce for a proper meal, rather than snacks.

It turns out I was looking at an old map so I thought the library was 1.5 miles south of the Royal Mile where, apparently, the library used to be. But the suggestions will probably come in handy anyhow. Thanks!

The NLS has 2 main sites - the one by the Royal Mile which is the original & the site at Causewayside
