A charming, endlessly-homely restaurant in Edinburgh, Above Iglu offers Scottish cuisine with an intense focus on sustainability of produce. Awarded the top number stars by the Sustainable Restaurant Association, marvel at Above Iglu's sensitively sourced stock: there's also a 40/60 split between vegetarian and carnivorous dishes, and plenty of choice for vegans and gluten-free diners. This quirky, relaxed spot is filled with mismatched furnishings, and colourful artwork from local talent.

    Went last night with 4 friends, mixed levels of satisfaction amongst us. My meal was great I had the herring, hake (a special) and the cheesecake but others had to ask to have their main courses warmed up, perhaps the kitchen was too busy due to the special offer, which is great value. Lovely ambience great place to have a conversation and service was fabulous.

    Good selection of fresh good. Great choice of gluten free, veggie & gluten with no compromise on taste. My carnivore husband was happy and loved his organic beer. Looking forward to going back!
    Service friendly and informative as well.

    A real find, we got to choose our preferred table, drinks were different - ginger cider and elderflower juice, more than one rose wine by the glass - would go back to try different drinks, the food was beautifully presented and the taste matched the look, we were so impressed we uploaded photo to Facebook.
