At the vibrant heart of G&V Hotel Edinburgh is Restaurant Cucina, a vivid, bustling, designer restaurant. The freshest seasonal ingredients and hearty flavours epitomise the authentic modern cooking that has been inspired by classic Italian cuisine.

Perfectly positioned at the corner of George IV Bridge and the Royal Mile, just steps from Edinburgh Castle, G&V Hotel is in the heart of Edinburgh. Open all day from breakfast until late, Cucina at G&V Hotel offers a menu of fresh, seasonal and authentic Italian dishes such as oven roasted partridge with balsamic glazed pumpkin or lemon sole with pine kernels and black olives. The exquisite dessert list has innovative decadences like chocolate orange bavarois with mandarin purée and balsamic vinegar ice cream or apple panna cotta with Cox apple petal and Granny Smith apple sorbet.

As the day progresses, the atmosphere changes from open and relaxed at breakfast and lunch to vibrant and intimate for dinner. In the stylish bar, there is afternoon tea to rival the best Edinburgh has to offer. The G&V Hotel afternoon tea offers traditional homemade fruit and plain scones, Italian deluxe finger sandwiches and Italian delicacies from the pastry chef.

    Online booking was simple, hotel public areas and roof-top garden are relaxed and welcoming, the staff are warm, attentive and friendly and the food was first class. We were worried that a 'taster' menu might not fill us up but were proven wrong and the excellent flavours ensured we cleared all our plates. I loved the art works throughout the building which was surprisingly peaceful despite its location.

    Great wee restaurant with excellent service. The set 'offer' menu is now a bit unexciting but good value. Usual menu is good however. Wine selection is very acceptable. Good bar downstairs but different feel since the refit. Recommend you give it a try.

    Excellent friendly, profedsional staff, nice food and wine but puddings were a real let down. The upholstery needs a really good clean.
