Description: The Rosehip offers a real genuineness in their friendly relaxed service...
The Rosehip offers a real genuineness in their friendly relaxed service, with a background of vintage decor, the clinking of antique crockery and chilled out tunes. A supremely fresh high quality of rotating specials and classic main meals, there is also the generous grill menu for those who need a more hearty feed. The head chef has a flare for finding fish and meat from the local suppliers which is evident in the tasting. Of a lunch time a quick bite can be found in the soup and sandwich menu for £6.50, And the restaurant is child friendly. The bar offers the biggest selection of whiskies in the New Town, an extensive wine & spirits list and a range of Scottish bottled and draught beers. It certainly is nice to see a quality central site independent of any of the chains which are so prevalent these days. Open for a hearty breakfast from 10am-12noon during weekends, summer and festive season.

Lovely place for a meal.

We were down in Edinburgh for a weekend and found this place off the main street. The food was really nice and we were able to sit on chairs outside due to the nice weather. The food was very nice, service was good and food came quick enough. There were street singers across which just added to... read more

We came about this place by chance whilst strolling down Rose Street. We are from Manchester and not familiar with the area so when we saw this interesting looking place we thought we would give it a try. This place is so cosy and romantic and sort of has a Parisian feel. The food was wonderful, the Shetland mussels were... More

We both had the fish and chips which was covered by the Living Social voucher. This was delicious and the tartare... More

This restaurant and pub is located close to Edinburgh castle on the infamous Rose Street. The burgers are close to American style but with chili and haggis topping. The whisky menu is superb and allowed us to experience single malts we had yet to see. Their price per dram was shockingly reasonable. This is a foodie stop in Edinburgh.

Wife and I found this little spot in New Town. Not a fan of the area, but this little restaurant was so nice. The type of small restuarant you only find in Europe's side streets. We enjoyed it immensely!!!

Was over in Edinburgh last week to see family but while showing my Irish family around we came across The Rosehip. Considering our failure with another resturant the day before The filling point, The Rosehip was breath of fresh air. Greated by polite and happy staff to a nice table for 5. The menu covered everything people want while visiting... More
