About Grand Cru

Dear diners, please note that online reservations are for the restaurant only. To book for drinks only, please contact the restaurant directly.

It’s hard to pigeonhole Edinburgh’s Grand Cru. Part restaurant with a distinct Italian bent, part cocktail lounge and bar, this stylish, atmospheric venue on Hanover Street on the New Town side of the city has peerless pedigree. One of a few restaurants in the same family – Bar Napoli and Quattro Zero are its siblings – Grand Cru oozes charm by night, and cheerful hospitality by day, starting with breakfast and rolling right through to lunch, dinner, DJs and drinks. Close to Princes and George Streets and the Royal Mile, Grand Cru is perfectly positioned as a restaurant to refuel after a day sightseeing or hitting the shops, and the perfect kickstarter bar before a night on the town. No matter the way you envisage your visit to this top Edinburgh F&B representative, be sure to book ahead.

I've visited on 4 - occasions with work colleagues and family and friends and always found staff friendly helpful and attentive. Food is good and service is quick. Music can be a little load but asked to move table to a booth and we were accommodated without any complaints. We will be back

This is a lovely place to visit to either eat or for a drink. The staff could not be more helpful and approachable. I would highly recommend eating here.

I was at Grand Cru with 3 friends we had a lovely time. The atmosphere was great. The staff were so attentive especially when I asked for a gluten free menu. The food was amazing and plentiful. We ended up just staying there would definitely recommend you and come back.

Lovely food, very reasonably priced but didn't have our booking and it was fully booked, except some cancellation for table of 4 enabled us have a table thankfully. Otherwise a birthday celebration for 6 would have been deeply disappointed. Out of the six of us everyone loved their startes, mozzarella, mushrooms and pate, but for the mains the only complaint re the fish was too much batter. All in all a good time had.

We had the 2 courses for £7.95, the portions were generous and the food delicious. The service was prompt and we were left to have a leisurely lunch which lasted 2 hours +. Oh, and the house red and white wine was very reasonably priced and quaff able , we'll definitely go back.

My husband and I dined on here on Saturday,he had sirloin steak which he says was lovely ,I had macaroni cheese,which was bland and had no salad or garlic bread with it. Disappointing.We hd asked for blush wine and got white,when we said to waitress,she just shrugged her shoulders and said sorry.

I go to grand cru a lot but it seems to be after a certain time of day the service goes down hill. The food was lovely and the cocktails are always great but we sat for 15 mins with empty plates/ glasses and couldn't get anyone's attention. We had planned on staying longer but ended up moving on as the service was so poor.

Excellent food, lovely staff. Nice to have the vibrant bar area and the quieter eating area slightly separate so you weren't having to shout whilst eating but could still enjoy the atmosphere.

Love this bar, it's always got a teally relaxed vibe from day to night. Good is great and reasonably priced. Best bit is it doesn't try too hard to be 'swanky' it just pulls it off anyway

Good atmosphere, not too expensive. Spent the whole night here and didn't need to move anywhere else. Good volume of music to still allow you to chat too.

Food was average, good value though! The waiters/bar staff were uninterested, one was actually yawning while taking our order. We were the only people in there at the time.

Service was terrible. Food was of a poor quality and overpriced. We felt rushed to move from the table shortly after finishing our meal given we had only been there for an hour.
