About New Chapter
Welcome to the New Chapter Restaurant.
We are a restaurant with 2 private dining rooms, based in the heart of Edinburgh, serving Scottish and Modern European dishes always with a twist. Honest, fresh, and fantastically tasty food bringing international influences to the best of Scotland’s larder. We have a menu full of freshly prepared local produce that changes with the season, all carefully prepared with passion and attention by chefs with a wealth of experience and served to you by a front of house team who are as friendly as they are knowledgeable. What this boils down to is fabulous food with none of the pretension – a relaxed atmosphere, fair prices and, above all, a thoroughly warm welcome. Bringing years of knowledge to a brand new neighbourhood venture in Edinburgh’s thriving food scene, here at New Chapter we’re proud to give you food and service to shout about.
I’m not sure of the name of our server but he was such a lovely guy. Genuinely interested about where we’d come from and how we heard of the place. The food was also outstanding. I had the octopus carpaccio to start (with the best calamari I’ve ever had!) and then the sea bass with crab cakes as a main. Both brilliant. It’s a little on the more expensive side if you’re on a budget, but the quality of food is absolutely worth it. I’d recommend it to anyone visiting Edinburgh!
When the restaurant is busy it can be too noisy to have a comfortable conversation, eg Fri or Sat evening. Lunchtimes easier - it's partly a result of the uncarpeted wooden floor (though I've nothing against that in principle). Yesterday lunchtime three of us enjoyed the haggis starter, and I enjoyed the tagliatelle, but my two companions had the bavette and found some ingredients a bit rubbery. However, you always get new tastes at New Chapter, and it's friendly and welcoming with good service. It's close to me, so I use it quite a lot, and entertain friends there.
Absolutely charming place! Service is flawless but never stuffy. Felt totally at home both times we ate there. Food is delicious and well thought out - its modern take but you don't get the impression they're just "chasing trends".
The food and the service we had here was absolutely first class, we couldn't fault it in any way. A nice relaxed environment that makes you feel at ease straight away. We'll certainly look to return on our next visit to Edinburgh.
We had a toddler and a baby with us, the restaurant was very accommodating and gave us a table with space for the pushchair. The fish and chips they provided to our toddler was so tasty and such good value. Would definitely come back again for the food and service.
Excellent meal and service. Could not fault.
Thankyou so very much for looking after us so well, especially as we had a couple of latecomers, nothing was too much for you and everyone really enjoyed their meal. We will be back again soon, many thanks Mairi
Mi restaurante preferido en la ciudad, nunca falla.
We were visiting Edinburgh and went to New Chapter on the recommendation of a friend and we were not disappointed. The staff were attentive and friendly and the food was excellent.
Had a lovely Valentines meal here a few evenings ago. The staff were WONDERFUL! We had a red wine spillage and our waiter couldn't have been more understanding or helpful - rushing over with soda water and towels. There was a slight mix up with our orders and again the waiter was extremely professional and fixed it within a matter of moments. I was cold when I arrived and the heater was turned on for me. The food was lovely, as was the wine we chose (the Malbec). The atmosphere could have been slightly more cosy (we were in a room downstairs where there were only a few other tables dining) but our waiter told us that they are soon to redecorate. Will definitely be back!
Really lovely staff. Attentive without being intrusive. Food was amazing. Lovely ambience. Thank you!
Fantastic food and very friendly staff. Thanks for a great night.
Interesting menu and attentive service.
Loved the Octopus Terrine
This was a brilliant evening - we booked a private room for 23 diners and the staff went above and beyond to create a magical atmosphere. The food was outstanding. I cannot recommend it highly enough
This restaurant is so good I ate there two days running and it is excellent value.
I am always recommending New Chapter to people and they invariably end up loving it, too. It's tucked away in a quiet New Town/Canonmills street without much else to recommend it, but New Chapter is a shining jewel in Edinburgh's much-vaunted "smart-casual" food scene for not only its food, but its service.
we had a wonderful meal again. loved the set dinner menu, great value for money
Very attentive and helpful staff. We had the lunchtime menu and were spoilt for choice, and all much enjoyed the delicious lunch. Our only disappointment was that we had no room for dessert...
Really lovely little gem of a place. On the pricier side, but worth the money we paid. Staff were lovely, and we felt well looked after but not smothered. The food was delicious, and I love that every time I've visited the menu is different. For me, this is a place to go for a treat.
As regular visitors to Edinburgh we never miss the opportunity to eat at New Chapter. Staff are always cheerful and attentive, the menu is always interesting and varied and the atmospher is always relaxing. Thanks to all the staff. We will certainly be back soon.
