One of Edinburgh’s best-kept secrets, Café St Honore sits nestled on a charming cobbled street in Edinburgh’s New Town. An Art Deco-style dining room features glitzy mirrors and glossy black and white floor tiling.

Serving the very best Scottish produce in an authentically Parisian bistro interior, the Café St Honore menu offers an eclectic, daily-changing selection. Delicately crafted mains incorporate subtle Scottish accents, like organic Scotch beef bourguignon and mash, whole grilled sardines, coq au vin made with organic Perthshire chickens, and local cheeses with home-made oatcakes and chutney. A tempting cafe classics menu is also served.

As well as crowd-pleasing blends, the wine list Café St Honore restaurant offers a host of bespoke blends for the wine enthusiast. For a graceful conclusion, tempting desserts are served alongside artisan coffee and dainty petit fours.

    Lovely meal in delightful French styled brasserie. Quite pricey but worth it. 3 course meal for two with two glasses of wine was a little shy of £100. Recommended.

    We had an amazing dining experience here. The service was fantastic, the wine was great and the food was spectacular. We had just come from London and enjoyed some of the best restaurants there and we thought this was better especially since the price was half of London. Beautiful decor and it was fun that there was someone taking pictures for the online site.

    Excellent food and excellent service! This was my first visit, and was extremely impressed by the high quality of the food. Both my wife and I enjoyed a first-class culinary experience, and the waiting staff were efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. However, I must comment on the toilet facilities. With only 2 cubicles, and one permanently engaged (it may have been out of order, but no signs to this effect), myself and other customers had to queue when using the facilities. Hardly an acceptable experience in a restaurant with a first-rate reputation. I have IBS, and having to queue to use a toilet is a very uncomfortable. On the 2 occasions I used the toilet last night, I had to queue between 5-10 minutes each time, something which certainly did not enhance my eating experience whatsoever. Other diners were also less than impressed as they joined me in the queue. I would certainly recommend the restaurant to others, but the lack of toilet facilities did put a distinct damper on my evening.w

    It was a truly incredible experience. The staff were very friendly and had a fantastic knowledge of the menu. I had the vegetarian main (a beetroot bake topped with blue cheese and walnuts) and that was something really special. The service was wonderful and the ambiance and decor was lovely. We really enjoyed our visit and would highly recommend it to anyone.
