There are special offers for 40 Edinburgh city centre restaurants and bars that are taking part in the Eat Out Edinburgh festival.

Eat Out Edinburgh recently released a full list of venues taking part in the campaign - with deals from a range of city centre venues, from Princes Street and Charlotte Square to St James Quarter - throughout the entirety of March.

Set menus, special offers and events are now available to browse from each of the 40 venues involved on the Eat Out Edinburgh website with guests able to book now until 31 March.

The past year has seen an influx of new bars and restaurants to the capital, bringing a variety of new dining experiences to explore during the Eat Out Edinburgh run, including:

  • Willow Tea Rooms: The new traditional afternoon tea spot is opening later this month in the former Starbucks unit with castle views on Princes Street and will be offering a traditional afternoon tea throughout March for £17.95 per person, excluding March 10.
  • RIO Brazilian Steakhouse: The newly opened Rodizio style steakhouse within the Assembly Rooms will be offering their menu including unlimited salad bar access and meats served tableside at £34.95 for dinner and £19.95 for lunch.
  • The Alchemist George Street: The creative cocktail bar and restaurant’s newest venue on George Street has curated a special menu offering two courses for £20 and three courses for £35.
  • Fat Hippo: The new restaurant known for its extensive menu of burgers has created a menu with a starter, main, and a side for £15 from Monday to Thursday throughout the month.

Offers vary from venue to venue, with each location bringing its own deal with something to appeal to everyone, from celebrating Mother’s Day with a brunch at Duck & Waffle with £29 for three courses or a lesson in mixology with a cocktail masterclass for £25 at the Hard Rock Café.

Eat Out Edinburgh brings friends, family, and colleagues together from across the Lothians for the chance to explore new cuisines and try special occasion restaurants for an accessible price while supporting the city’s vibrant hospitality sector.

Run by Essential Edinburgh, the campaign taking place throughout the capital’s dedicated Business Improvement District (BID) returns this year for double the time after a successful two-week run in 2023.

“The scope of this year’s campaign brings more venues than ever over a longer period of time for a massive celebration of Edinburgh’s unmatched food scene right in time for the Spring season to bring a renewed energy to the city.”
