Taisteal review
10/10
A short walk away from Edinburgh city centre is Stockbridge, a leafy village-like suburb that boasts a tremendous amount of independent cafes, shops, and restaurants, including Taisteal, owned by Michelin-trained chef Gordon Craig. Taisteal is an old Irish word for travel or journey, and it’s well worth the journey to this Michelin-recommended Edinburgh restaurant...

We had a lovely meal, the spicy popcorn and bread with smoked butter were a lovely touch. The waitress (a pregnant lady) was wonderful and couldn't do enough for us . Will definitely be back.

It was very quiet when we were there, hence only 3 stars for atmosphere. But food was outstanding & Market Menu is great value.

Very nice meal, I particularly enjoyed the chocolate and peanut fondant, absolutely stunning! My partner had the pork belly and cheek with black pudding gnocchi, which was so moreish and probably the better of the two mains. I enjoyed my venison but thought the artichokes were a little bland, but still a lovely dish. Service was fantastic and we had a great time, thank you!

We were 2 couples and first timers at Taisteal. Delicious and exciting food with attentive but discreet service - if they hadn’t run out of cheese it would have been 5 stars 😉 DEFINITELY coming back.

We visited this “ Little Gem “ of a restaurant and were greeted with a warm and friendly welcome. Our service and food was excellent ! I had the cod dish and my Husband had the pork dish. Both tasted so fresh and flavoursome. This was an Itison deal that we purchased so what a fantastic deal we got. Having said that I would highly recommend the Tainsteal to all my family and friends and rate it 5⭐️ We will definitely be back.

I was attracted by the concept of fine dining experience at an affordable price. And it does deliver. Might need to work a little on the selection of wines to match each course but very nice nonetheless. Thank you for a lovely meal.

Food, atmosphere and staff were all great. Unpretentious and very welcoming. Will definitely come back. Only thing was there could've been more choice for vegans although it's a small menu so I understand why not!
