More Gluten-Free-Friendly Restaurants in Edinburgh

It's tourist-season again, so it's a good time to post a list of a few more eateries.

In Morningside, I've recently tried the Waiting Room (7 Belhaven Terrace, Edinburgh EH10 5HZ). It's an American-style sports bar/restaurant (think TGI Fridays without the flair, or Applebees), but they have a large menu with many gluten-free options. (UPDATE 21/3/12 - They have since redesigned their menu, with nothing explicitly labelled as gluten-free.)

In the New Town, there's The Dogs on Hanover Street. It features "nouveau Scottish" cuisine, and they have an alternate gluten-free menu (as well as dairy-free and vegetarian menus) if you ask.

In Leith, there's La Favorita (325-331 Leith Walk, EH6 8SA), an Italian restaurant with modern cuisine. They serve gluten-free pizzas and pastas. They also deliver. Their sister restaurant Vittoria (113 Brunswick Street, Leith Walk, EH7 5HR) also has some gluten-free options.

Giuliano's (18-19 Union Place, Leith Street, EH1 3QN) has gluten-free pizzas, and is often open late.

Actually, many of the Italian restaurants in Edinburgh have gluten-free pastas or pizzas. I don't have a complete list.


  1. Hi,

    Great little review. I just stumbled across this. I run a gluten free travel website and I was hoping that you may allow me to use your recomendations on the site to help fellow gluten free travellers. I will happily link back to your blog with credit and subscribe for future updates.


  2. Hello there,

    Excellent blog and some great Gluten Free tips and suggestions.

    We're heading up to Edinburgh soon so can't wait to eat out there - and at a lot of places too by the look of it :-)

    Many thanks,
