About Gardeners Cottage

The Gardener’s Cottage is a restaurant in Royal Terrace Gardens at the foot of Calton Hill. Built in 1836 the cottage, which was originally home to the gardener, has been transformed into Edinburgh’s home for seasonal cooking and social dining. Seated at long communal tables our guests can enjoy weekend brunch, an a’la carte lunch menu, or an inventive, set seven course dinner menu, using only the best seasonal, local produce.

Excellent food, limited (disappointing) wine list. Communal dining commercially attractive but perhaps less so to some diners.

It was amazing lunch. Fresh and health (also delicious) food made me happy and when I finished lunch I asked them of another booking. Now I'm looking foward to visiting The Gardeners Cottage again. Thanks so much.
