Edinburgh is full of fine dining and Michelin star restaurants; The Kitchin, Martin Wishart, The Plumed Horse, The Honours and The Atelier to name a few. I was recently invited to review The Stockbridge Restaurant and I actually didn’t know a thing about it. After having a wee peruse of their website I couldn’t wait to go.

It’s a cosy fine dining restaurant located in a basement in the heart of historic Stockbridge on St Stephen Street.

It would be easy to miss it as you walk along the street so remember to always look below, you never know what gems you could be missing.The Stockbridge Restaurant, Edinburgh

Inside the restaurant is lovely and cosy. The decor is very traditional and gives an instant air of a relaxed yet special environment. The Stockbridge Restaurant, Edinburgh

The staff were wonderfully kind and very happy to help. Throughout the evening they were easily available yet they were great at letting us get on with our meal in peace.

Something sweet

Next up we were given some rhubarb trifles (I think). These were delicious and would have been enough of a dessert for me.

We decided to share a trio of sorbets. They were the perfectly refreshing end to a delicious meal and wonderfully relaxing evening.

The food as a whole was all faultless. Absolutely delicious and we had a wonderful evening.The Stockbridge Restaurant, Edinburgh
