Been here a number of times with my partner and the food and service are always good. Most of the main meals have a Scottish influence and this time we opted for a Rosehip burger and battered haddock. The burger was stacked high with different layers (the haggis being our favourite) and the fish was fresh (a prerequisite for any... More

A busy restaurant usually indicates a good restaurant, The Rosehip is no exception. Good food and good wine at a reasonable cost with a friendly helpful staff. All four of us enjoyed our dinner and the atmosphere. Staff in less casual attire would be better.

The menu was good and restaurant had a nice ambience. But when you charge £28 for fillet steak and sauce you have to get it right......and they failed to do so. Steak was dry and sauce not thick enough. Drinks also steep at 6.25 for small wine and £6 for a bottle of cider. In summary - the restaurant was... More

As we stepped into The Rosehip without reservations, we were greeted by a smiling welcoming man who helped find us a table. We had the mussels in white wine, cream & chorizo (delicious!), the Moroccan ox cheeks (tender & moist, mmmm) with couscous, and the sea bass (very fresh!) with ratatouille. Throughout our meal all the friendly servers kept stopping... More

I come here quite frequently for dinner whenever me and my friends wish to pamper ourselves, and the food truly never disappoints. Moreover, the service is also quick and efficient, and the staff is always friendly. Will always choose to pop by whenever I can.

Was really excited to try this place so walked in on a Wednesday afternoon for lunch. When I said me and my girlfriend had a tastecard to use we were proudly told we had to book 24 hours in advance to use it. The place was totally dead aswell, two tables being used at most. One to avoid.

We visited tea time, monday 20th and it was busy! You can tell its a popular place and the staff treat all customers like they are friends, really lovely to experience! We had steak and it was very tasty. The music was great and the wine reasonably priced...what more can you ask for? Definitely recommend!

Staff were excellent, friendly, welcolming and attentive. Service was quick and efficient. Seabass was absolutely amazing - tastiest seabass I've ever had! Husband's Rib Eye was cooked to perfection. I would have had a glass of wine but it was really pricey for the small and large glass which was strange because a full bottle wasn't overly expensive. Resorted to... More

Had a lovely dinner here with the other half and it was brilliant! Great service and great food with even better music. I had the lamb shank and it was delicious and tender! Would definitely recommend and come back to if I'm in Edinburgh again!

Great restaurant. Amazing soundtrack - felt like it was run by friends who love food. Intimate setting, food was really good and inexpensive. Wee bit of Scotland as a starter was brilliant - highly recommend it. We had the ribeye and lamb shanks for main courses - both cooked brilliantly. Thank you Rosehip!

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, the summer and festive season.

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
