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.

We are a truly lovely evening, the food was delicious and the wine pairings perfect. Service was excellent and friendly. Worth every penny although cannot afford to come back in the near future :-) Thank you for a wonderful gastronomic experience.

We had the most amazing evening on Wednesday for my Husbands birthday. Fantastic setting, food and service with a wonderful and straight forward, non-intimidating wine list! Can't wait to come back!

Great waiting staff-slightly disappointed with the food, way too expensive for what it was (nice but not mind blowing) especially as Edinburgh is full of tasty and interesting restaurants for half the price. Lovely ambience and enjoyed the occasion of it all but wouldn't go back now we've ticked it off the list of restaurants we "should" go to.
