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.
This was our second visit to Lovage and thought it was excellent. Stavros, the waiter is first class, attentive without being annoying and very witty!
As always, fantastic innovative food, beautifully presented. And excellent at accommodating dietary requirements
Food was fabulous, staff attentive but not overbearing lovely evening
I was disappointed in the restaurant. It was very quiet and lacked any energy - I felt disrespectful talking above a whisper and couldn’t enjoy my time with my family. The food was good, but in my opinion took too long to come out of the kitchen. I did not think the food was worth the price we paid for it. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this restaurant to someone traveling to Edinburgh.
We had a lovely night. Six of us dined and we were made very welcome from the moment we arrived. Food was fabulous. Loved the fact I was all seasonal and Scottish produce. We will definitely be back.
We loved our evening in Lovage on Sat night. The food was fantastic, wine amazing and the service was well humoured and top notch! A super evening - we will certainly be back in the future! Well done!
Had a great meal
Lovely, elegant, delicate food served beautifully in pleasant surroundings. We will return and recommend it to others.
The food and drinks were excellent and provided a fantastic celebratory evening meal. There were some nice additional touches too as the restaurant knew that this meal was to celebrate a special occasion. The service was very good with attentive staff. It's a shame I don't live in Edinburgh to return here more often.
Excellent food and service
Food was amazing
Superb imaginative food in a casual setting. We eat out regularly and our rating of the food in Lovage as superb is not given lightly. We are looking forward to going back to Lovage on our next visit to Edinburgh. Highly recommend.
Very good and special food. I wasn't feeling to well so therefor just ordered a small plate, but it tasted very good. Cauliflower risotto! My partner ordered the duck and was also very pleased.
Wonderful food, great atmosphere and very friendly staff. The chef explained the food - all ingredients were perfectly combined. Will come back in any case.
Very good food.
A hidden culinary gem, this second visit was just as good as the first. Last time we weren’t told there was the option of 4 or 7 courses; improved information this time.
Excellent food. Lovely atmosphere. Perfect service. Will most certainly be back.
Our meal at Lovage was delicious and the service was wonderful from our waitress Niamh. Unfortunately our experience was tainted at the end of our meal when we were expected to have the table free for 8pm (The supervisor explained that this is the norm at weekend but as Valentine's Day fell on a Tuesday this was not highlighted at the time of booking). Thanks to Niamh for looking after us so well though.
super nice dishes and very polite staff!
Service was first class. Friendly and professional. Menu altho limited was excellent. Quality of food presentation and taste was wonderful. Wine pricing is extremely reasonable. A truly great place.
Just keeps getting better and better love the new menu. Still my favourite restaurant in Edinburgh. Keep up the good work.
The experience we had here was absolutely outstanding! Everything was perfect from start to finish.
Excellent food and service, just need to warm the restaurant up a little!
Relaxed fine dining with an emphasis on quality ingredients. Friendly, relaxed service. Will be back.
Food was excellent beautifully presented and served with panache and real feeling and appreciation for the work of the chefs. All in all an great experience, would recommended it to anyone interested in a evening where food takes the centre stage with a great supporting team of waiters and management.
