Edinburgh, arguably Scotland’s most romantic city, is the perfect place to spend Valentine’s Day with your partner…
If it’s fine-dinning, warm welcomes, a buzzing night life and a few glasses of wine that you’re after, you’ve come to the right place.
Take a look at three of the most romantic restaurants in Edinburgh which are perfect for celebrating this year’s Valentine’s Day.
The Stockbridge Restaurant
54 St Stephen St, Edinburgh EH3 5AL
Following stone steps leading down from St Stephen Street and through an ivy-covered door reveals a hidden gem of Edinburgh, The Stockbridge Restaurant. Softly candlelit with sumptuous furnishings, it is no wonder that is has been voted as one of the 20 Sexiest Restaurants by The Times. Owned by husband and wife team Jane Walker and Jason Gallagher, this is classic Scottish cooking with heart. The natural stone walls and fireplace with wax trails from years of candlelit meals certainly help to create a relaxed and intimate atmosphere. Their weekly set menu offers exceptional value for delicious food, with a worthy addition for Valentine’s Day of a sharing dessert of 2 Chocolate brûlée, rice pudding, sticky toffee and crumble.

Wedgwood the Restaurant
267 Canongate, Royal Mile, Edinburgh EH8 8BQ
An iconic restaurant on the most famous street in the city, the Royal Mile, Wedgwood the Restaurant is run by husband and wife team Paul and Lisa Wedgwood. Take your taste buds on a tantalising tour of Scotland with the six-course tasting menu for two, celebrating the best of Scotland’s larder in true Wedgwood style. Expect the unexpected with Lobster thermidor crème brûlée, and Mull of Kintyre cheddar and onion bread and butter pudding; as well as more classic dishes with Roasted North Sea cod and Scotch beef fillet. The restaurant was created by the Wedgwood family as they wanted to realise their vision of a perfect evening – relaxed service, comfortable surroundings and above all, good food and wine. The team at the restaurant go to any lengths to ensure guests are kept happy and this includes bespoke picnic hampers (including all the crockery and delicious treats cooked up by Paul), that make a unique way of enjoying a meal in Edinburgh.
