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...

The only very slight negative was there could have been a wider range of good beer on the menu. The food however was fabulous. We have a great evening and enjoyed every mouthful.

Really enjoyed tasting menu with matched drinks. Portions on large size for a 7 course tasting menu eg soup was full portion but combinations of ingredients and flavours was brilliant.

Outstanding food & great service in a lovely relaxed atmosphere - perfect combination. Top class experience at a mid-range price meaning great value for money also. Will definitely recommend and we’re looking forward to coming back.

Took my aunt to try the market menu at lunchtime as she’s keen on trying new places; hard to find somewhere different after her 50 years in Edinburgh! Innovative but tasty food, delightful service and excellent value for money. She - and we- will be back.

It was one of the best meals we have had since moving back to the UK 3 years ago. The flavours, presentation and portion size were just perfect. So good, we booked to come for Tuesday evening. Of particular note is the fact that this is fine dining without being pretentious. Relaxed and informal. We would give 10 stars if we could.

I can honestly say my partner and I found it one of the best meals we have ever tasted (and we have tasted a lot)! The service was impeccable and the food just divine! To top it off we have the 3 courses and a bottle of wine for two people and only £50! We could not believe it! I will be telling everyone that comes to Edinburgh to come straight to this wonderful restaurant!

Great addition to Stockbridge. Excellent service and interesting and innovative food. Tables for 4 are cramped and overloaded with bread, candles etc. Atmosphere gets much better as evening progresses.

We opted for the 5 course tasting menu hoping to try combinations we’d never experienced before. Well we weren’t disappointed! “Pig Pie” was particularly gorgeous and Banana Panna Cotta with Nutella Ice Cream - perfection!!
