Restaurant description

At the vibrant heart of the Radisson Collection Royal Mile 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, the Radisson 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 Cucina afternoon tea offers traditional homemade fruit and plain scones, Italian deluxe finger sandwiches and Italian delicacies from the pastry chef.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    I thought the portions were very small and I had the pork fillet which I found quite tasteless. The service and wine was very good but I would not go back to Cucina.

    The experience was wonderful, me and my girlfriend had the bottomless brunch, both very impressed with the personalised buffet. The cold meats were amazing, getting an extra plate of smoked salmon and prawns. The setting was luxurious and the service extremely pleasant and helpful.

    Did meal deal for £19.95 pp for 3 courses plus glass Prosecco - excellent value and good choice from set menu. Really nice food and excellent service - very helpful and friendly. Nice trendy setting.

    Very disappointing been lots of times before terrible service especially from our waitress cold and uninterested Just like the restaurant no wonder it was nearly empty I complained about the cold had to sit with napkin across my shoulders I was so cold meal was average and under seasoned we were given coats before we finished meal staff were disinterested we were so upset as we loved this restaurant in the pasts I’ll not be returning or recommending

    My friend and I had a lovely meal in Cucina. The food was delicious and well worth a visit. The waiters were attentive and very professional. The restaurant itself is very nicely decorated and comfortable but it was very quiet the evening we were there and lacked a bit of atmosphere! Minor detail as the food was excellent.

    A very good concept but could be better executed! We enjoyed the Sunday roast bottomless brunch. The good points were that the waiters were friendly, helpful and my glass of champagne was never anything but full! The chocolate duo was delicious, I could’ve eaten double! However, the main (I had the roast beef) was a bit disappointing, the beef was quite fatty and the potatoes, although tasty, were small in number. The starter buffet was ok, no plates for a while but just felt a bit stingy - a few types of cheese, a few (very tasty) pastries but it all just felt a bit cobbled together which is a shame as it’s a great idea!
