Recommended Posts

Any of the restaurants in Dalry any good? Taking friends over from the US out for dinner on the night of the FoH AGM so looking for somewhere near Tynecastle so I can do both. 😎

Was in B & D’s Kitchen (Chinese) in both January and April of this year. Very good and very authentic with plenty of Chinese people eating there (a good sign imo).

 

214 Dalry Road, opposite the staircase that takes you up to Polwarth sort of area.

Locanda De Gusti is the pick of the bunch but, Pizzeria 1926, Mia, First Coast, B&Ds Kitchen & La Casa are all excellent too.

Dalry has several quality restaurants these days. I recommend using Tripadvisor when booking anything at all. I'd suggest anything with an average rating below 4.5 out of 5 isn't great.

Aye Dalry is really punching above its weight nowadays... all the above are excellent!!   You also have Pizza Geeks and a steakhouse on Dalry Road near the clock

La Case is on Itison today

19 quid for 5 or 6 tapas and 2 drinks

Obviously can not be used until after the festive period but a good deal

Another shout for First Coast it’s sort-of Scottish themed (but not in a tartan & Loch Ness Monster way) so your US friends might like that.

 

Interesting to read about La Casa - fancy giving it a go.

I'm quite partial to Mia Italian. Always absolutely excellent stuff, from chicken/mushrooms dishes to pizza.

Chop Chop at Haymarket is outstanding, the banquet is to die for and you can order anything you like after it's done for no extra cost, it's brilliant!

Dalry is great for eating out. Genuinely don't think there is a bad choice from those mentioned.

This is good to read, AC.

 

We are always looking for new places/areas to eat in on our return trips to Edinburgh.

Agree with this.. you need to book at all of these (not pizza geeks.. Which I love) but Dalry is actually one of the best places to eat in Edinburgh at the moment. 

 

Locanda is the No.1 Italian restaurant in Edinburgh according to trip advisor.

Another vote for Mia, my Mum goes there every couple of months but loves that they remember her by name and how she takes her coffee etc.
