Edinburgh offers an amazing variety of restaurants to choose from. We are a family of four with two boys who are now a bit more adventurous when choosing dishes they are not familiar with. But because we appreciate how important the food and the atmosphere in a restaurant is when dining out with children we though we will offer a few suggestions for family friendly restaurants in Edinburgh.
1. Café Tartine [Leith]
Café Tartine is a French rustic brasserie in located Leith. This is a family owned restaurant, with lovely staff and absolutely gorgeous French dishes.
2. Thai in Ting Thai Caravan [Old Town]
Great South East Asian food and a vibrant atmosphere in the Old Town. The restaurant is usually busy so you may have to queue outside, but once you’re in, you’ll be glad you had waited for a table.
And if you’re looking for a takeaway, this is on the Deliveroo list so we would highly recommend you try it!
3. Bothy at Murrayfield [Murrayfield]
The Bothy restaurant at Murrayfield is an ideal location for family meals. Whether you are visiting Edinburgh or planning a family day out, this is a lovely place to consider. The location is also ideal- on the bus route to and from Edinburgh City Centre and very near The Murrayfield Stadium.
4. Fabio’s Restaurant [Glasgow Road]
Fabio’s is a family run restaurant and a favourite of ours. We may be a bit biased as this is one of the restaurants our family has been to since the boys were babies. The staff is absolutely amazing, and the dishes are delicious. Not pretentious and with a relaxed atmosphere, Fabio’s can be an ideal choice when eating out with children.
5. Restoration Café [Dalkeith Country Park]
