Description: 'Credo' Latin for what you believe, each person has their own 'Credo'. We aim to please everyone! We have 4 starters on one plate to share, a choice of 8 mains (3 with Supplements for those who seek the Scallops, Venison or Angus Beef)and then the same with dessert - why make a choice when you can have them all! This is our all day menu (except Sat/ Sun 10-3pm) which costs a fabulous £19.50 For 3 courses or £16.00 For 2 Courses. Feel free to come in for a tasting plate and glass of wine, a 2 or 3 course meal or just a drink and great hospitality. We pride our 'Credo' on being a venue you can use to your liking. We are very much part of the Leith dining community and our decor reflects giving a relaxed but unpretentious feel whilst catering to your every whim. Please give us a go!

“Booked second visit before we left restaurant.”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

This was our first visit to Credo and we were extremely impressed. The starter was a sharing platter that consisted of Oatcakes with mackerel pate, goats cheese salad, haggis tartlet with plum chutney and deep fried vegetables.
We had chicken roulade on a bed of mashed potato with lovely vegetables for our main dish. For dessert ( similar to starter) a selection of 4 very tasty sharing sweets.
We had a bottle of Shiraz that was £15.95 and it was excellent, a lovely aroma, and a very strong blackberry taste.
The owners Simon and Ruth of Credo were very friendly, and you can tell they are very proud of their new venture.
We booked before we left the restaurant to go back this following week and are looking forward to it.
A new favourite restaurant.

“Lovely food and a lovely experience”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

I went to this restaurant on Friday evening because we saw an offer on Groupon for a 3 course meal for 2 for £22.

The restaurant was nice and clean and the waiting staff were all very friendy. You would not think it had only been open two months as the kitchen seemed to operate flawlessly.

The food was delicious and definately value for money. Even with out the groupon voucher, the amout being charged for what was served is value for money - 3 course meal for £15 per person!

In addition to the three courses, we were served a veloute before the starter and a palate cleanser before the deserts.

I will be back, even without a groupon deal!

“A great little place, well worth what they charge.”
Reviewed 9 April 2014 via mobile

We went here with a Groupon voucher not expecting much but it has a great atmosphere. Really friendly staff, great service and good food. Getting a appetiser and pre desert thrown in was the icing on the cake. I would definitely go back. I'm sure this place will do well.

“All round great experience”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

I got a Groupon deal for Credo as a gift so said we would use it for my boyfriends birthday on a wednesday night in March. First we had the meze started to share which was really nice for mains i had the duck leg and my BF had the steak and paid extra. I thought the food was so tasty and better than a lot of other restaurants we had been to. The decor is fab, the staff are lovely and the food is really good not to mention great value for money. I seen some other comments about minor petty things which i thought was a bit silly. I live in Leith so feel the need to support local businesses especially when they are only starting up. This restaurant is not making themselves out to be 5 star so if your looking for that kind of set up best to go to Martin Wisharts or the Kitchen and i am sure will pay over the odds to cover those small imperfections. If your looking for a nice meal out and you are open to this way of share dining etc then i definitely recommend this place and we will definitely be back again soon :)! Best of luck with it. :)

“Best Meal Ever”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

This newly opened restaurant is bright and welcoming. The food is extremely well cooked with a great choice . They cater very well for Gluten Free and Vegetarians which is quite a find. The 3 course meal was only £15 and we were given a velote before our starter and a palate cleanser before the main. The food was cooked to perfection.The staff are welcoming, friendly and attentive while allowing you to enjoy your meal. A good wine list at good prices. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. We will be back many times.
