“Combining traditional Scottish dishes with some new-fangled twists, the restaurant abides by the seasons, going local on everything from produce to venison, and even wine. The atmosphere is as exquisite as the food, with a verdant courtyard that feels a bit like a magical forest. Less expensive, brasserie-style food is served on the upper level, while the Wee Pub — Scotland's smallest! — is a great place for a nightcap”

“Cute, traditional bar with a good selection of draught beers and traditional music on Tueday nights. For a more intimate dining experience, head downstairs to their restaurant whose motto is "Think global eat local" so as you can imagine their menu is rather varied but using the finest Scottish produce. These guys also have haggis on their menu for those brave enough to try it. Go on!”

Cafe

“Scots LOVE a good cu of tea, and a few places offer more variety than Tchai-Ovna. This charming, slightly peculiar little tea shop is housed in a former 19th century stables, tucked into a cobbled lane in the city’s west end. In addition to dozens of tasty leaf tea, they serve delicious vegan and vegetarian food and also host live music three to four times a week... ”

“This is my favourite Brunch spot, always a go to when friends are in town. Best of all its walking distance from the flat! My favourite thing to get is the eggs royal with a spicy tomato juice! They are open for Breakfast/Brunch, Lunch and Dinner.”
