    Hi Amys

    My suggestions on best value would be:
      The Waterfront Wine Bar & Grill - lovely seafood...it's on the Waterfront, Leith; you can dine in their conservatory overlooking the Water O' Leith and....lovely house wine.
        Skippers Seafood Bistro....is next to the Waterfront and also has lovely seafood dishes - smaller restaurant but considered exclusive.
          Howies Waterloo Place...I've never tried this one but my friends love it.
            Britannia Spice.....again, never tried it, but friends praise the choice of Indian food.


            Just my recommendations......

            Hendersons is a vegetarian restaurant and one of my favourites but this deal is not good value as the prices are low anyway.

            The Doric is really handy for Waverley Train Station and has a good selection but this deal is not good value as they are reasonably priced.


            Anyway,I wish you a good experience in Edinburgh and happy eating!

            Have eaten in Howies a few times and food has always been very good, freshly cooked.
            friends like Britannia spice..and has won a few awards I believe.

            just noticed Kweilin chinese restaurant is on the list too. the food there is lovely.

            I went out to Le Sept last month and it's excellent. It's a great French restaurant with huge portions. You will only need two course. Trust me! Although their puddings are amazing.

            Howies is tried and trusted and you can't really go wrong there. I think it's bring your own to.

            Check out here for reviews of all the restaurants:

            Just bumping this up so some more people can see this offer before it runs out.

            Thanks to the OP

            I found britannia spice to be particularly lacking in atmosphere and particularly bland curry.
          • We've booked for Merchants for tomorrow evening with this deal. Heard several good reports about it before so I'm looking forward to trying it out myself. Menu looks lovely on their website!

          • Be wary of Howies - you either love it or hate it. Personally i find it vastly overpriced with a menu which ranges from the bizarre to the inedible and I would never eat there through choice - I do want to like it but I have never had a meal i enjoyed there. On the positive side, I would add Daniels Bistro to the list of places recommended.

            Café St Honoré was good when I last tried it but that was a couple of years ago, Martin Wishart rates it; though the Sunday Herald slated 'The Wee' [one of his choices] in last weekends magazine review.

            How was it? Menu does look good apart from the "Fillet of habitat topped with a herb crust served with a garlic and tomato butter" :) Think I would go for the beef and then the mousse.

            I know its not posh, but Jimmy Chungs Chinese buffet on Waverley bridge is £12 for eat as much as you like. A good money saving tip, but DONT go there if you are on a diet! I think it's about £6 for lunch.
