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!

We came to Credo after getting a Groupon voucher. We were very excited by the menu, both the start and the dessert depended on what is in season and could vary. The restaurant is large and open planned with three separate levels. The partitions and screens of the different levels are all glass making the restaurant large but cozy and private feeling. Our waitress was lovely and explained the menu to us. The food was amazing and even though we were having a three course meal, we also received a very flavorsome amuse-bouche (pea, mint and truffle oil chilled soup, it was beautiful!) and a yummy palate cleanser. I would like to thank the chefs and our waitress for a lovely dinner.

Easily the best service I've had in years!

With a gluten free wife...these guys moved heaven and earth to change the set menu to one that suited our circumstances....the result was some excellent fresh tasting food at a very reasonable price. We didn't even have discount vouchers which I think others had!

I can't recommend this place highly enough....they have great food and choose to offer a sharer starter which is great to discuss during dinner.....

Great!

My friend and I have been here three times now since the restaurant opened, and had a lovely experience each time. Beautiful decor, attentive and friendly but unobtrusive staff, and wonderful food. A lovely relaxed atmosphere, with candles and soft music adding to the gentle ambience of the place. Perfect for a romantic meal or quiet dinner with a friend.

The sharing platters for starters and desserts are a great idea - these have been different each time, and always a pleasant surprise for the tastebuds.

"Medallions of Venison with Paprika Parmentier Potatoes, Honey Roast Carrots, Sugar Snaps & red Wine Jus with Redcurrants" - delicious, venison cooked just to my liking.

"Chicken Roulade with Grape & Black Pudding Stuffing, Mashed Potato, Baby Carrots, Sugar Snaps & Tarragon Cream" - again delicious and recommended.

Today, the braised pork belly on a bed of mashed potato with carrots, sugarsnaps and mustard sauce was the favourite!

It is such a shame this place is so far off the beaten track and as such appears to be very quiet, I really hope this changes as the good word spreads. Although I admit part of its attraction for me at the moment is that is IS so quiet, as I often struggle to find pleasure eating a meal in crammed, noisy restaurants where the staff are busy rushing around and you can't hear yourself think let alone have a conversation.

At £15 each for 3 courses, this is fantastic value for such a lovely dining experience and we will most definitely be back again!

Hi There,

Thank you so much for your review. It's great to have regular customers such as yourself at this early stage and we're so glad you have enjoyed it each time. We do aim to be busier, and are relying on reviews such as this and customers to spread the good word as you say! Hopefully it won't detract from the ambiance or service we will certainly strive for that to be the case.

We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Kind Regards
The Credo Team

A party of 6 of us had a great night out with a great value 5pm offer. First, four starters between 2 diners, very well-judged. Then mains-I had lovely medallions of venison,then four delicious puddings,again between 2. Our party included 2 hotel proprietors, one current,one retired and the proprietors of an award-winning bed and breakfast-all very impressed! Lovely service from David. Simon,the proprietor, gave us some red dessert to try and introduced us to his partner who runs the kitchen. A real find-we've already booked to go again!
