Going to Edinburgh for 25th wedding anniversary can any one recommend any nice restaurants near the new town? Not too posh, thanks

Dubh Prais.
Alternatively Whiski on the Royal Mile is a bar but does excellent food

The one with ‘Witches?’ in its name? At the top of the Royal Mile?

The Witchery is posh and expensive (but fabulous)

Cafe St Honoré is central (North West Thistle Street Lane). It's quite smart and mains are about £23 but they do a very good value express lunch too.

Nooooo, the Witchery is terrible - overpriced, relying on it's position and gothicness. Is pure shite.

Stockbridge has some good places to eat, and Leith - not exactly New Town but not too far.

I completely agree about the Witchery. It's been coasting for years. It's also so dark you can barely see what you're eating. Leith's a good steer, eg Kitchen, Fishers Leith (there's also one in town) and The Shore.

I'd second Café St Honore. Great food and the place is pretty laid back.

L'Escargot Bleu on Broughton Street, if you enjoy French food (made with Scottish ingredients).

If you enjoy veggie and vegan food, you can't beat Hendersons on Thistle Street. They've got a more cafe like place on Hanover Street too, but the Thistle Street place is perfect for couples. For Italian, Amarone on the corner of St Andrews Square and George Street is rather garlicky and lovely.

If you love Indian food, try mother’s india

Like tapas but Indian food.
Amazing, not posh but really nice setting.

Can anyone place the afremch bistro-type place we went to a few years ago? It was small and had lovely old stone pillars inside. It was opposite the gin place on a quiet tourist street that opens out into a big street.
Whatever it was called, it was lovely and not especially expensive.

Six by Nico. I've not been to the Edinburgh one but the Glasgow one is fantastic. Six course taster menu changes every 6 weeks.
