Good luck getting in anywhere, the place is hoaching with tourists with festival in full flow.
Pubs are not great but the food is ok if over priced in Le Monde.
Other options. Cafe centro in George street is good (Italian)
Chez jules in Hanover street does a cracking lunch deal with skirt steak and chips and peppercorn sauce (With veggie option) or send her over to Hendersons on the other side of the street and enjoy the steak…
Also Dusit in thistle street
Nobeer – accurate observation. I ate in some lovely places mainly on the outskirts of edinburgh, thanks to recommendations on here. Compared to spain it is v expensive, my staple breakfast of 2 poached eggs, toast and coffee was c 10gbp there. My spanish breakfast of bocadillo de sepia, olives, bottle of wine (i know..), coffee is 5e.
Its not just edinburgh, its all the uk cities, any change out of 10 gbp is rare these days.
