The Gardener's Cottage

Another Edinburgh stone is The Gardener's Cottage, a magic space set in -- you guessed it a former single-story gardener's cottage. Located at the foot of Calton Hill, the restaurant is made up of two small dining rooms with three communal tables. The cabin itself dates all the way back to the 1800s and stood for many years as the house to the gardener of Edinburgh's Royal Terrace Gardens. When the cottage became derelict in 2012, chef duo Ed Murray and Dale Mailley resisted the rights to transform it into a restaurant, complete with a resident gardener, Charlie, who grows vegetables, fruit, and herbs from the backyard. Food is seasonal -- obviously -- without a printed menu and dishes representing the best ingredients available that day. Dale also heads up The Lookout, which opened at the beginning of this season after much expectation. Perched at the top of Calton Hill, it is a wise place boasting floor-to-ceiling views of the town, with an elegant menu to match.
