Enjoy the sunshine with Dine Out Edinburgh
You can book online and search through menus and user reviews to find the dining experience that best suits you.
Here at 5pm HQ, we’re really enjoying the sunshine so we’ve suggested five Dine Out Edinburgh restaurants where you can eat al fresco.
Both have outside dining areas where you can eat in the sun.
Go catch some rays!
In Edinburgh’s south side, 56 North is a modern and airy bar restaurant serving classic bar food with an international twist. It is a great option for a post shopping bite to eat or a meal before a night out.
They have tables outside the front of the bar and, when the weather is fine, the floor to ceiling windows are also opened to the sunshine.
56 North is especially known for its extensive gin selection and fine array of cocktails. Ideal for slaking a thirst when the sun is beating down.
You can book into 56 North via 5pm Dining.
Part of the Crowne Plaza Edinburgh – Royal Terrace, The Terrace Restaurant is on Royal Terrace – one of Edinburgh’s finest Georgian streets. The restaurant is located on the ground floor and opens out onto the hotel’s beautiful, private, terraced gardens.
Many guests enjoy pre-dinner drinks in the garden and, if the weather is kind, some even dine in the gardens. Inside the restaurant, the decor is smart and contemporary.
Located just around the corner from The Playhouse Theatre, the Terrace Restaurant is the ideal choice for an early dinner before your show.
5pm Dining enables you to browse the menus and book into the Terrace Restaurant – Crowne Plaza.
Scottish Cafe and Restaurant
Tucked under the Scottish National Gallery and with spectacular views across Princes Street Gardens to Waverley, The Scottish Cafe and Restaurant is a spacious, daytime venture which acts as a showcase for Scotland’s artisan producers. The owners even grow some ingredients for their restaurants in their own kitchen garden.
Open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon and high tea, The Scottish Cafe and restaurant takes understandable pride in their sourcing. From the Stornoway black pudding in the breakfast rolls to the Isle of Mull Cheddar in the scones via the Linda Dick chicken, this is an operation which wears its heart on its menu.
The food is simple, thoughtful and well prepared rather than fussy and over worked.
5pm customers have left lots of glowing reviews such as this:
‘Friendly, polite staff, fast service, lovely setting and amazing food. Will definitely return and recommend to friends.’
Their Dine Out Edinburgh offer is £15.95 for fish & chips + beer or glass of wine.
The Tower is a sleek and elegant rooftop venue in the Old Town. It is located within (or should that be on?) one of Edinburgh’s most visited buildings – the National Museum of Scotland on Chambers Street. The restaurant is glamorous, chic and oozes quiet luxury. Put simply, this is rooftop dining at its most spectacular – with brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner every day.
Tower Restaurant specialises in Scottish cuisine with a global flair and uses only the best produce in the dishes they create.
Their Dine Out Edinburgh offer is £15.95 for 2 courses from the lunch/pre-theatre menu and you can book via 5pm Dining.
