Edinburgh is a great romantic destination. Evidence of an often turbulent history is there for all to see, and it is a city of great character and charm. From the cobbled streets of the Old Town nestling in the shadows of the majestic and imposing Edinburgh Castle, to the classical architecture of the New Town; from the bustle of the University and its lively surroundings to the more sedate and relaxed suburbs; it is a great place to explore with that special someone. What better way to start a night of flirtation and seduction that with a great meal in enchanting surroundings?
Of course, not everyone agrees on the perfect spot for a romantic meal. For some, romance is inextricably intertwined with notions of opulent surroundings and decadent indulgence. It is hard to resist the magical Gothic charm of the Witchery by the Castle, undeniably one of Scotland’s most uniquely beautiful venues. For others, an intimate Italian restaurant such as Locanda de Gusti is the perfect start to a romantic night out. For something a little different, why not try Aizle which offers a more innovative experience which is bound to stimulate good conversation, as well as impeccable food and stylish yet relaxing ambiance.
Whatever your preference, we hope that you find the perfect destination in our list of Edinburgh’s top ten romantic restaurants.
