Located in the heart of the historic Old Town, it’s an ideal respite from the bustling capital, whether you’ve been treading the nearby royal mile, exploring the National Museum of Scotland, or following in the inky fingerprints of JK Rowling.

The Metro Bar & Brasserie is also perfect for a variety of occasions, whether you’re sitting down for a full meal and savouring every last bite with friends and loved ones, or just enjoying a quick drink with some tasty snacks with before hitting the town.

Enjoying a wonderful location in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle, the restaurant offers a classically contemporary bi-level space matched by an exciting seasonally rotating menu that’s full of creative twists. It takes classic Scottish inspiration and runs with it, creating bold new fusions.
Thanks to these traditional tastes with a difference, the lunch and dinner menu is a constant surprise. From small plate choices like venison scotch egg and crispy salt and pepper squid, or baked camembert sharing platters, to the likes of crayfish linguine or Queen Anne artichoke tart, there’s something to suit every palette.

It all adds up to one of the best restaurants on the Grassmarket, not to mention one of the best restaurants in Edinburgh’s Old Town.
