The Award Winning Restaurants of Edinburgh

Whether you are visiting the city or you are a full time resident right here at Quartermile, settling for the obvious high street eateries and tourist-trap restaurants may be the easy option. But the dining experience won’t offer you fine food worth shouting about.

Edinburgh is one of the most diverse cities in the world, and thanks to its eclectic mix of eateries experiencing something that is a cut above the average should always be on the cards. With a wide range of award winning restaurants and outstanding eateries to be found, we suggest that you look beyond the global chains and select a culinary delight from our list.

Read on to discover the award winning restaurants that you have to try, and eat and drink your way through the city’s finest eateries, cafes and bars – whatever your budget.



With a slogan like “Entice the taste buds, nourish the soul” Sasso already has an ethos that goes hand-in-hand with creating great tasting food. Despite only opening its doors in February this year, Newhaven’s Sasso has made quite the impression on the city’s food and drink scene and was recently the recipient of the Daily Record Hot Plate Award 2016. The Italian restaurant uses locally sourced produce to craft traditional and modern dishes with love, all of which can be enjoyed while taking in the views of the Edinburgh shoreline.


Castle Terrace

Experience the finest produce that the city and the rest of Scotland has to offer at the award winning Castle Terrace.

Headed up by the award-winning team behind Michelin star restaurant The Kitchin (a brigade led by Edinburgh born, French trained chef Dominic Jack), Castle Terrace provides a delicious menu of modern British classics created with French cooking techniques and using only the finest and freshest ingredients Scotland has to offer. That combination is a winner every time! From its prestigious location underneath Edinburgh Castle, Castle Terrace is a true representation of ‘from nature to plate’.


Field (Southside)

A winner of several awards and a regular feature in the Michelin Guide, Field is one eatery that has been bringing something extra special to the city’s dining scene since its launch in September 2013. Reflecting the country’s gastronomic heritage and drawing on head chef Georgia Cass’s own personal passion for ethically sourced produce, Field delivers exciting flavours and a dash of theatre, without the pretention that you might expect from such a high-class eating establishment. Alongside its quality, seasonal creations, Field’s wine offering is world class providing the perfect accompaniment to your chosen dishes. With such qualities, it is hardly surprising that Field also features in The Good Food Guide, and comes highly recommended by Scotland The Best.



We couldn’t mention the best award-winning restaurants in Edinburgh without featuring a seafood favourite. Ondine has built a reputation for utilising the very best produce to deliver truly memorable Scottish seafood experiences. By embracing Edinburgh’s fishing heritage and using the fantastic supply of fresh produce to its advantage, the team at Ondine works with local, experienced suppliers such as scallop divers in Mull and lobstermen in Newhaven to bring unrivalled food to the table

Ondine has won AA Scottish Restaurant of the Year and Good Food Guide Scottish Restaurant of the Year, been featured in Observer Food Monthly’s Top 40 UK Restaurants and been shortlisted for The Cateys UK Independent Restaurant of the Year Award.
