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 had came for an anniversary lunch and had a lovely time. The Gardeners Cottage is delightful with a very relaxed ambience. The tasting menu was imaginative and the food was beautifully prepared and wonderfully tasty. The service was very attentive and we will certainly be returning to try the rest of the menu.

I mistakenly made my reservation for the wrong date and would no longer be in Edinburgh to keep the reservation. The staff was kind enough to fit me in that evening and provided excellent service. I never felt like an inconvenience. Thank you so much.

The service was generally good. I would have liked for the tall gent who initially greeted us to have been a bit more friendly. Fortunately the company otherwise was good

Expensive, but very good. Would have been even better had the server checked back with us about drinks, etc., more often.
