The Food Studio is all about the quality of the food - its provenance, its preparation and its taste. The chef and staff love what they do and want to share their experimental approach with their diners. Don't go for the setting or the atmosphere....More

Whilst not exactly far out of the city centre, it can often be tempting to not travel far when there’s a lot on your doorstep (as a visitor - we’re not Edinburgh natives). However, visiting the Edinburgh Food Studio was the best decision we made...More

We were so lucky to stumble across this restaurant yesterday when searching online for somewhere to eat and then to be able to book 2 seats for last night's sitting. One of the best meals I've ever had. It is absolutely 100% a hidden gem.
