Once a run down port, now a hip as you go centre for studios, designers. There is still a dark underbelly to Leith but for restaurants and bar, what's not to like?

Cafes & Teahouses

Diner 7 cafe Edinburgh

Specialisation is a chargrilled scottish beef burger. Delicious!

Cafe Truva

The original Turkish cafe that now has two outposts in the centre of the city.

Local Restaurants

The Waterfront

A waterfront place jutting out to the quayside. Conceived originally as a waiting area for the steamship passengers the place was refurbished into a classy conservatory with cozy ambiance.

The Shore

One of the city's best fish restaurants with a real fire and huge windows overlooking the Water of Leith. No smoking. You can eat from the restaurant menu in the adjoining bar.

Martin Wishart

Considered the best restaurant in Edinburgh but then foodies always have their favourites.

(fitz)henry Restaurant

Excellent Scottish cooking on Leith's Popular The Shore.


A popular seafood joint, Fishers is equally famous for its great views of the harbour at Leith.

King's Wark

An award winning pub, The King's Wark is well known for its massive servings of haddock and chips on offer here among many other reasons!

Kinloch Anderson Tartans & Kilts

Legendary Kilt maker where you can hire, buy or have a bespoke Kilt created for you.
