We are like our food, one spoon local, one spoon European sprinkled with seasonal Scottish produce.
Located in the heart of Edinburgh, just a stones throw from The Royal Mile, Lovage Restaurant offers the complete dining experience where unconventional food and incredible wines are accompanied by informal setting and relaxed friendly service.
Our philosophy starts in our kitchen, where we use quality seasonal produce combined with imagination and passion to create dishes that you want to talk about, you want more of and you will come back for.
Delicious! Excellent service.
excellent meal in attractive surroundings. We all had a really good night
Superb meal and service. We really enjoyed our visit.
I struggle to find any reason to criticise the food we eat or the service we received, both were impeccable.
The food and drinks were absolutely fantastic. My group raved about the how good the food was and what a good restaurant choice it was. The service was a bit slow we waited 1hr in between starter and main courses but it did not dampen our experience we would all still return to the restaurant.
Definitely will come again
portions were quite small but dishes were interesting and beautifully presented
Great starters and the main course was good, if not quite up to the standard of the dumplings starter. Lacked a little atmosphere when we were there, but we had chosen to dine early.
First class food and service suited our party of 6 down to the ground
We had a wonderful evening celebrating my friends 30th. The service was attentive but not overbearing, the food was absolutely exceptional, so many delicious things to choose from. What a great find, we’ll definitely be back.
My first visit will not be my last! The food was great - the steak starter a particular triumph.
Great food in a relaxed setting. Service excellent. By far one of the best meals I have had in Edinburgh!
We had such a great time at Lovage. The best food I’ve eaten in a long time! I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
We had a wonderful meal that was delicious and presented beautifully. Every person who interacted with us was so friendly. Service was exceptional.
Awesome, the food was really tasty and the association of food was perfect. Lovage staff was pleasant, helpful and smiley!
Great all round, truly delicious food.
Great food, service and ambiance...
Interesting and tasty food. Top notch service! Wonderful night! We'll be back!
Fabulous food and service- will be back
We loved our evening at Lovage -from start to finish! The service was pleasant and prompt. The dishes were works of art that offered complex flavors and a creative presentation. We liked the small cozy atmosphere and soft background music. It was a welcomed change from typical pub food. We will definitely eat there when we come back to Edinburgh.
We loved our meal and will be coming back soon. Thanks Lesley Ritchie
We had such a lovely evening at Lovage on Saturday. The staff treat you exceptionally well, the evening started great with an aperitif accompanied with an amuse bouche and some flat breads. I had the duck dumplings to start which were absolutely amazing, my partner had the cheese souffle which he loved. I had the Hake to follow which was delicious, I normally don't like dried fruit in main courses but I absolutely loved this dish. My partner had the seabass as his main and that too was delicious - quite earthy compared to the asian-style hake. I had the cheese to end the evening and what a great selection of cheese!! My partner had the cheesecake and wasn't overly impressed - he said there could be more flavour - so I'm glad I chose the cheese! Overall the staff were so lovely, food was great, wine was great, the only thing that could have made it better would be the atmosphere, the place seemed so quiet by about 20:30! Hopefully more people will start going there.
Have already recommended you to friends.
Fabulous meal in lovely surroundings. The food looked and tasted excellent. Service was absolutely great with everyone helpful and informative without being intrusive. The music choice (and volume) was perfect too - our waiter even wrote down the details for us so we could look up the download :-)
