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.
Fantastic meal, wonderful staff, great atmosphere
We were very rushed, had to be out by 8 but were ready we'll before then. Also didn't pay any attention to request for kids not to have cheese.
Best Restaurant in europe GOOD LUCK GRAHAM
It was the most amazing unique dining experience.
We had a lovely lunch meal and enjoyed having a view to the chefs plating up our meals. Communal tables offered a great chance to chat with fellow diners.
Delicious food, excellent wine pairing. Relaxed environment and friendly staff. Would definitely recommend :)
Table of 4 and none of us having been before were all very impressed in a timely served 7 course menu. Great use of ingredients, flavours and textures but not crazy fussy presentation! Highly recommend it!
Had a wonderful evening. Loved the food, the atmosphere, the staff and we met some lovely people who were also dining. Communal tables definitely help people to interact.
Inventive , attentive and if you pay attention you'll see someone out picking some of your ingredients from the garden.
My first visit and I enjoyed it very much. The service was welcoming and friendly and atmosphere was good. The food was so fresh the chef went out to the garden to pick the salad. Lovely experience.
Great venue all around. Inventive menu, friendly and helpful staff, relaxed atmosphere, delicious food and wine.
Overall we had a lovely meal at Garners Cottage. The food was delicious and there was lots of variety on the menu. We didn't care too much for the long tables and being wedged in so close to others. We had a very loud group next to us which was distracting and made for an unfortunate atmosphere. I think in a big group though this would be a great place to go
This was a most delightful experience! Right in the middle of Edinburgh a quaint cottage filled with delicious food, from first course to last.
Great food, we will be back!
Fabulous food in this beautiful setting . Relaxed , helpful staff . Loved the whole experience !
Ha sido una experiencia increíble, el local y el servicio encantador; y que decir de la comida, realmente increíble Además del fabuloso trato tienen varias opciones de menú vegetariano y no tuvieron problema alguno en realizar una tarta de cumpleaños Otro aspecto que me ha sorprendido para bien es el trato con el resto de clientes, todos comíamos en la misma mesa, por lo que permitía conversar con todos! Un sitio espectacular y totalmente recomendable, en el centro de Edimburgo
We felt we could have a bit more space at the table
We really loved our dinner here. The food was amazing and the service couldn't have been better. We will recommend it to all of our friends coming to Edinburgh.
Food was excellent to the most part. Staff were very friendly. My partner and I enjoyed the experience greatly.
I really enjoyed my experience. The communal tables added another level of experience. I would dine here again absolutely.
