The Scottish Cafe is a great venue and super location to enjoy the city at its best.

Lunch with us then you can have all the fun of the Edinburgh Christmas Market in East Princes Street Gardens.

At Contini George Street Christmas is a little more continental.

We don’t do turkey but we do all of your other favourite things. Milanes, pasta, mozzarella, tiramisu and so much more.

At Cannonball it’s a very relaxed affair.

If you're booking the Castle of Lights at the Castle then Cannonball is the perfect venue to have your Christmas late lunch or early dinner.

We love parties and we love Christmas parties!

To make it as easy as possible you can book directly online or our dedicated events team are here to help with any questions.

Great food enjoyed with friends and family. It’s never too early to start celebrating so to get us in the mood our decorations were all up by 1st November this year.

Our gold trees are environmentally friendly and recycled annually. We spruce them up from the 1st of December with holly and ivy straight from our Contini Kitchen Garden.

Fresh fine branches are added to give that extra Christmas feel. They always look so beautiful, perfect Christmas selfie opportunities to start the party. Tag us on Twitter or Facebook and we’ll have a little limoncello waiting for you after your meal.

Our Festive menus launch as follows:

What makes us different to other restaurants is we cook and serve the same dishes using the same suppliers as we do throughout the year so the quality never falls below the level you expect from us.  We make seasonal tweaks to make sure the food tastes Christmasy but the provenance of our favourite ingredients is never compromised.

 

Delicious dishes guaranteed

At The Scottish Cafe & Restaurant and Cannonball Restaurant & Bar, we always have turkey.

Our smoked salmon is coming from Belhaven Smokehouse in Dunbar.

Our Christmas pudding is our traditional family recipe. We’ve been making it this way for over 60 years. We call it yum yum because it tastes so good.

 

The Scottish Cafe & Restaurant at the National Galleries

The Scottish Cafe is a great venue and a superb location to enjoy the city at its best.

Lunch with us, then you can have all the fun of the Edinburgh Christmas Market in East Princes Street Gardens.

 

Cannonball Restaurant on The Royal Mile

At Cannonball it’s a very relaxed affair. The bar is a brilliant venue to enjoy pre or post-lunch of dinner drinks.  There is more than enough space for larger groups of up to 20 or 30.

We can arrange a limited selection of drinks or set a tab behind the bar, all to add fun and make you and your guests as relaxed as possible. If you’re booking the Castle of Lights at the Castle then Cannonball is the perfect venue to have your Christmas late lunch or early dinner.

Great draft beers including Paolozzi, Drygate and of course over 120 whiskies for you to choose from, well go on it is Christmas after all.

Contini George Street in Edinburgh’s New Town

Designed as sharing style menus it’s great for everyone to get stuck in, be well-fed, Italian family-style, what could be better.  Amazing cocktails can be enjoyed at the Italian bar. Edinburgh Christmas Gin Negroni anyone?

Our Christmas playlist will be live from 1st December.  The perfect time to get you tuned in for the festive season.

 

Christmas Afternoon Teas

If you’re looking for something different that’s not lunch or dinner why not book our Christmas Afternoon Teas at The Scottish Cafe or Cannonball or our Aperitivo.

 

One thing for sure the atmosphere will be busy and fun and we promise you’ll have a Christmas cracker of a time.

But remember we love our team too and we close on 25th and 26th December so we can party too!
